Barrington of Oakley was a very nice community. It was a newer facility. However, it was a little further away from where my mom was, and it was more expensive. It was a single building with 4 wings where the rooms were. It was very nice spacious room. The facility was beautiful. It had a very elegant dining room. They had a movie theater room. They had great facilities for therapy and workout. They had a pool.

The facility is in good updated condition. But food service is quite lacking. They are always running out of items like jelly, butter, eggs, etc. Forget it if you need your meal taken to your apartment. They insist much of the problems with food is not pre-ordering from a menu, not letting them know if guests will be present, etc. Well most of the time you do all this and still they have no record of you, no pre-ordered food. The dining room manager is nasty, very hot and cold. Don't dare question anything about the food or service. Servers are inexperienced, never refill drinks. Clueless about waiting on people in a timely manner. Servings are miniscule but I guess they figure elderly don't eat much. Continued emails and phone calls to the executive director get promises of fixing things, but rarely does that happen. He doesn't seem to be in touch with what his staff is up to. A housekeeper was let go in November 2015 and another told my mother they'd clean her apartment when they hired someone. Good customer service skills, NOT. I was assured by the director this is not so, they clean weekly regardless. Well her place hasn't been cleaned in over two weeks.
The marketing hype going with promoting the facility as top notch would be wonderful if it were all true. There is little follow up and residents are resigned to mediocre service and attitudes. For nearly $4,000 a month, this is not a good value for my mother. She moved there two years ago at $3500. At the time told they hadn't raised rent in five years, and if they did it would be 2-3%. The following year it went up to $3750. In 2016 it'll go up to $3932. In my estimation that's 7 or 8%, not 2-3.

I visited another one named Barrington of Oakley. I would give it a 5 on everything that I saw. It is an excellent facility, but the only reason I might prefer the other facility was that it was smaller. I think that may be easier for a memory person to adjust. As for the staff, I can't really tell other than everybody that I met was pleasant. I don't know how efficient they are because I was only there for a short time. I was impressed with what I saw for a two hour visit. They have a lovely and nice dining room. The rooms are beautiful. They are spotless but almost too big. They have happy hour, and they have music. Their program looks at the skill level of the person, and they have activities that are appropriate. Everybody can't do the same activity because they are not able to.
