Reviews of Oakcrossing Retirement Living

What residents and their loved ones say about Oakcrossing Retirement Living in reviews.

Jane, family member

"Having moved my Dad into Oakcrossing in September 2021 we are so thankful and pleased at this amazing facility. The staff is top notch, and I would love to name them all and give them a shout out, there are so many amazing people that work here I would be afraid of missing someone. I can't always visit due to distance, Oakcrossing makes it easy with an option for virtual visits which they set up completely, making it foolproof with my technology challenged Dad. There are lots of common spaces,..."

Dorothy Mereu, resident

"We moved here for the sake of my husband, John. He was in assisted living here for a while, then transferred to long-term care when a room opened up. I could just go down the hallway over to the other building. And I could see that he had very good care over there, too. It was a godsend, really ... The staff are wonderful. All very helpful. All wonderful. You just have to ask ... It's a wonderful community. Everybody here is friends. It's interesting, because we often find out we have connection..."

Art Thompson, resident

"The food here is superior. It's a lot of little things that make a big difference. We've had some new people coming in, just for a lunch, and they told us, “we can't believe the chatting you folks do!” But that's how it is here. Everyone accepts you the way you were. There's no people up here or down there, it's all the same, no matter what your experience was, we're all the same."
