In 2013, I started looking for an assisted living facility for my Mother in the Arvada - Westminster area. After touring five facilities I found the search discouraging as they were so institutional and more like a hospital setting. They were just totally depressing. Then I went to The Oberon. It was like stepping into a home away from home. Entering on the third floor (which is ground level) I saw a large common area with a fireplace, and another fireplace in an adjoining library. A large sun room is down the hall for those winter days, or if you are interested in playing pool. I paid particular attention to the staff and found them friendly and smiling interacting with the residents and each other in a very positive and helpful manner. In touring the three levels of this home I noted a large dining area with intimate seating of tables for four and another fireplace. The amenities include distribution of prescribed medications, meals of course, a beauty salon, in-house laundry service, weekly housekeeping and very nice apartments. The apartments include a kitchenette, a nice size living area with outside views, a small walk-in closet, and of course a safety designed bathroom. There are two pull cords for emergency attention that can be located according to your wishes.
My Mother has been in residence there since May of 2013 and is very happy to be a part of that community. She really enjoys the 10-cent bingo games and many more of the activities offered on a daily basis. It is a relief to me to trust the care she is given and having such caring people watching over her when I can’t.
