I looked at quite a few places before settling on The Waters. The staff are delightful, the apartments are quite lovely - light and bright, I’ve eaten there a few times and been impressed. My mom - Who is good at finding things to criticize - loves living there. Sometimes I wish I could partake in all the fun activities they have planned!

A great experience overall.
The entire team is lovely. Everyone we came in contact with was a super helpful person very kind. And seemed to enjoy what they did. If you have a loved one or if you personally need more attention than independent living, but not necessarily full-blown assisted-living, this is the place for you. My mother really didn't need full-blown assisted-living. However, what she needed was a few months of attention to get her back on track. And once she got that. She outgrew the program. Meaning once she no longer needed assistance. She didn't really care to live there.

The facility is next to a nice grocery store, which is convenient for walkers; the staff is super friendly and helpful! They are very helpful with move-ins. The food is really good and the servers are patient and engaging. I would absolutely recommend The Waters to anyone looking for a senior living facility.

I am very happy with the care my mom has received at The Waters. I can't give it 5 stars right now because there are a few issues here and there. We are working through these small items with the nursing director, so we'll see where we end up.

A place I would live
Our overall experience has been excellent, we are happy we chose The Waters of Oakdale for our loved one. The meals are very good, and they have a nice dining room, however we would prefer diabetic friendly notations. Our loved ones participate in very little so with with the activities so that for us is difficult to judge. For the value - the menu style pricing can get expensive as more is needed but for now it seems like a fair price. Based on the experience we have had so far, we would recommend this community to other families.

A wonderful place!
All of the staff, from reception to dining servers, are very engaging and pleasant. The apartment is roomy and is designed to let in as much natural light as possible. My loved one's apartment is always clean. The food is good and comes in portions appropriate for older people. My loved one loves the library and the lunch excursions to local restaurants. The facility is more expensive, but I would definitely recommend it to friends and family if the finances make sense.

A great place to live!
The staff was awesome. Staff cleaned for me once a week. The restaurant is beautiful and the food is great. I was in a studio apartment that was huge with a kitchen, comfy chair. The one apartment that I saw had a laundry room, it was a one bedroom and it was a very nice size.

Review for The Waters of Oakdale
The interaction with the staff has been good. We picked this community because of the location, and it seemed like a cheerful atmosphere They do a good job of checking on my parents. They encourage them, to go to the dining room. It's great that it's next to a grocery store. I would recommend to other families.

Great Place to Be
The staff is awesome. My loved one likes the food. They are super welcoming, nice and friendly. I really love that is does not feel clinical like a hopsital, it's more like a hotel type of environment. The activities are good, they could offer more of a variety. it would be nice if they offered, a continued ambassador program for the residents. Overall, I would recommend to other families.

A good place for dad
We liked the fact that they had senior living and assisted living mixed together so my father in law could easily transition if he needed more care in the future. He was always the youngest in assisted living and with having that mix he feels like he fits in more. The other place he has been are predominantly women and this facility has a good amount of men. The staff make it a point to learn everyone's name. All of the staff know his name and call him by it - we thought that was especially nice. They pride themselves on being respectful and courteous to the residents, and that comes from the leadership on down. It has been a positive experience for us and we would definitely recommend The Waters of Oakdale to others.

Our experience has been really good. We chose this facility because the location was close to me and also they had availability when we needed it. We had heard from some friends with parents there that recommended it as well. I am hoping they will be able to use the Minnesota waiver when the time comes, they have not approved it yet but are in the process. The staff is very attentive and friendly to all of the residents. I feel comfortable having my parents here. I would recommend The Waters of Oakdale to others looking.

Our loved one love being at The Waters, they love all the staff there. Everybody from top to bottom from management to maintenance team has gone above and beyond their daily job duties. Our loved one does not always participate in the activities but they always make an effort and always check on our loved one. When they have movie nights that always remember to bring our loved one popcorn. When it comes to the meals and dining service we have only heard a few complaints with the quality of the food.

Mixed Review
The aides were really good, we liked them a lot. But my loved one has mobility issues. And when we signed the contract, it was for the highest level of service, which was to include the use of a lift with assistance from two staff members. When it finally came down to it, they said this is just not working out and you're going to have to find somewhere else. My loved one was only there about 6 weeks, we were dealing with Covid as well, and the whole thing was just really difficult and unfair. They obviously didn't want to work with us, and I couldn't leave my loved one somewhere unwanted. My argument was with management, not with the staff that was working with him everyday.
