Oakmont is a gorgeous, very upscale place with a wonderful atmosphere. Everything in it was new. The food was fabulous. They had a library and movie theatre. The people were very well dressed and stylish.

Oakmont of Fresno is truly a beautiful building. I had the pleasure of taking a tour and found that the staff was both knowledgeable and warm. During the tour I noticed that the current residents were engaged in fun activities. Oakmont is a true five star community.

My mother, Louise moved in last month. She is 95 years old. My siblings and I are so pleased with the atmosphere and excellent care at Oakmont. We stayed with mom all week. During our stay, we met the caregivers who were attentive and kind. Also, the food is superb! We are so blessed to be able to to leave our mother in good hands. God Bless all of you at Oakmont!

Excellent medical staff! I receive blood sugar tests three times a day and insulin for four times a day. The chef is aware of the residents’ medical conditions. The activity director provides interesting and helpful activities for the residents.

My brother is one of the younger residents (65 years old) at Oakmont of Fresno. Almost two years ago he was critically injured in an accident and has been unable to live independently. He has been through a very extensive rehabilitation program and has transitioned from 5 months in the hospital to other care facilities before coming to Oakmont. Each change has been difficult for him to adjust to especially since he realizes that he will never be able to live on his own again. Oakmont has been such a blessing for him and our entire family. He was welcomed as one of the first residents and has been treated with complete respect and kindness. He has adjusted quickly to his new surroundings and has been given so much attention. We are a very close family and have been so pleased to know that he is in a safe place where his needs are being met beyond our expectations. Oakmont has definitely met my brother's needs. He is very fortunate to be alive and living at such a wonderful facility. Also one last thing..... the food is amazing! We had family in town a few months ago and took a group of them to Oakmont for dinner. The family is still talking about how they were treated and the delicious meal they had.

Oakmont Senior Living is a very clean facility, and everybody is very friendly. They seemed like they are kept up very well. It's a nice facility. From what I saw, I was impressed with the place. With the rooms, they give you enough space. Some rooms have little kitchen areas. They have a recreation director that I was able to speak with, and they do lots of fun things with them on a daily basis. They all do their ADL's accordingly. They are charted on every two hours. I thought it was a very nice facility.

The atmosphere of Oakmont did not seem sunny, warm, or inviting. It’s new and not many people moved in yet. The food was good. The sales people were very friendly.

Provider Response

We appreciate the feedback on your visit. It is true that at the time of your tour of our Traditions Memory Care there were less than ten residents. We had just recently opened but are now approaching capacity so the atmosphere in Traditions is quite lively. We have dedicated, full time Activity Directors in both Traditions and Assisted Living who keep our residents very engaged throughout the day. We encourage you to stop back in .

One of the features we are most proud of at Oakmont is our abundance of natural lighting. We are designed with extra-large windows in our homes and common areas. Innovative Folding Glass Walls give the luxury of wide open space in our dining rooms. As winter approaches our residents will enjoy the warmth of our five fireplaces making our common areas really feel like home.

All of the staff have made my parents feel like they are part of a big family. The attention to details in my opinion has prolonged my mother's life.

I think Oakmont of Fresno is beautifully designed. I think it has exactly what my mom needs, and the people are well trained to deal with assisted living cases. I am very happy. The grounds are great. She used to walk 4 miles a day, and they have a walking path which is perfect. The activities are really good, and they are even getting better. They are very busy and culturally diverse. Not every single activity applies to her, but there are many things that she is very happy with. They have live music at least 2 days a week, and she enjoys the classic movies. They have a full movie theater, and then she and her new friend get to pick out the movies they are going to watch. They are also having a mother-daughter tea on Saturday which she is really looking forward to for mother’s day. It is brand new and very clean. Their studio apartment is very clean, very nice, and well-laid out.

I went to Oakmont. It was very nice, very fancy, and beautiful. I only spoke with one person who gave me a tour, and he was very nice. It was brand new. They had an aviary, a park setting at the back, a movie theater, and things for people to do.

I visited this facility

Oakmont was very nice, and the staff was exceptionally friendly. I like the staff and their philosophy there. They’re very caring and seemed to have a lot of respect for their residents. They had quite a list of activities. They had computer classes and exercise classes. They had an area for cooking and an area where they do lots of interaction and demonstration. The rooms were very nice and very roomy. They felt more like a residence and less like a hotel room. It is on the top of my list; it is the one I liked the best of the ones that I visited. I was very impressed.

Oakmont was the one I liked best. I like the staff, the facility was brand new and modern, and the apartments were large. The food was excellent, and the activities calendar was full. They have everything from gardening, exercise, games, movies, and classes. They also have a service salon, day spa, movie theater, and projection screen. There was a wide variety of food choices and restrictions for diabetes and other diets. The grounds were gorgeous and absolutely breathtaking with more gardening areas than any other facility in town. They have outdoor dining -- that’s something that is uncommon in the area -- beautiful water features, shade, comfortable sitting areas, and beautiful flowers. It’s located near shopping area, there's a park right up the street, and it’s close to freeways, with easy access to anything you really want to do in town. West and Alicia are two people that I have been working with and helping my grandparents find the care they need. They are absolutely amazing.
