My husband and I decided to downsize to facilitate our life style and enable us to close our house/apartment and travel more frequently. We knew of several other independent living facilities, but none in the near Los Angeles area had the grounds and space that Royal Oaks has. We also met several couples whom we had not known before who had moved in and were very happy here. It has now been 9 months and we do not find even one down side to this big change in our lives! Regular and special activities, congenial people, food service, entertainment.....we could not be more satisfied with Royal Oaks.

We took a leap of faith when we moved to Royal Oaks - and to our surprise, we've never looked back once. Like a fine wine, our life here just gets better adn better with time. It's filled with many new adventrures, great new friends, wonderful food, and a beautiful apartment. Who could wish for more?

Things I like about Royal Oaks: Friendliness of residents Multitude of activities & events - "Something for everyone." Meals adaptable for many types of diets, and surprisingly good. Helpful transportation for those of us who don't drive. Capability and prompt response of staff and maintenance for repairs, replacements, etc. Nurse office on premises. Beauty Shop on premises. Acorn Room sell toothpaste, greeting cards. Monthly weight and blood pressure checks if wanted. Interesting and talented residents who are fun to meet and be with. Residents came from many states.

My wife and I had looked at several senior residences in the past out of curiosity. Her mother had been a resident in another one prior to her death. My wife had worked as a volunteer there for several years and was familiar with what they offered and generally if there was a homey, family atmosphere rather than an institutional aura about them. Finally, after several falls, stays in the hospital and visible concern of our daughter we decided that we really weren’t ‘too young’ after all, and to ‘get real’ and look around again. We visited three different places in the area, all of which were lovely. Of these three, Royal Oaks was the one that impressed us the most. There were a number of reasons that we were drawn to Royal Oaks.

First of all the general overall beauty of the well-maintained grounds and a feeling of home and safety one senses when entering the property.

We were shown a number of available apartments. While all were very attractive and seemed acceptable for occupancy, the sales person explained that they could be modified to some extent, based on the desires of the potential new resident.

The person at the front desk was so capable, friendly and genuine. He made us feel at home and that he really liked people.

There was an impressive lobby, great room and dining room. One could greet and entertain guests there with no misgivings.

They feature marvelous holiday brunches fit for a king.

There is a wonderful staff at every position, from management through service and mechanical positions. All are competent, polite, cheerful and desiring to ‘do a good job’.

Royal Oaks is very well maintained. It is cleaned regularly and is spotless in all the public areas.

The other residents are what one would hope them to be and would select as neighbors if that was even possible..

Finally, but most certainly not the least important, is that skilled nursing and assisted living accommodations are available on the grounds. If one’s loved one becomes infirm, the other person rapidly recognizes what a wonderful benefit it is.

There are other excellent qualities. Come see for yourself. It can’t hurt and you might be grateful that you did! You may even be invited to lunch.

Security - stress-free environment - cultural enrichment opportunities - new friends - beautiful campus with easy access to major metropolitan center. Not one moment of regret in moving to this caring community.

We were so well informed by the Marketing Staff that there have been no surprises except very pleasant ones.

I give Royal Oaks an A+ for their annual "Celebrate America" held this year July 3rd. Red, white and blue balloons and flags decorated tables, planters, walls and walkways. All staff and residents were dressed in patriotic attire. The event started at 4:30 with a delicious BBQ buffet. At 6:30 the fun really began under the oaks. As the resitdents and guests sipped root beer floats, they were entertained by a young gypsy jazz group. A great evening was enjoyed by all.

I am a friend or relative of resident

Approach this organization with great care. Extraordinarily expensive and "surprises" crop up regularly. Contracts require enormous "up-front" buy-ins and once the resident is located, tremendous pressure is put on the resident to "submit" to a different contract with different terms that are much more favourable to the facility. The resident is essentially forced to "sign on the NEW dotted line" or "move out in 24 days." My mother regretted her decision to enter "Ponzi Oaks" until they day she died. be.group = be.careful.

I visited this facility

I'm from Georgia before, and I'm glad to find a facility in California. It's near my loved ones. They have a nice scenery and amazing backyard. The facility is nice and they have a big beautiful garden. They have a swimming pool and a big gym so that all the residents can still enjoy their daily lives in the community. All the people and staff from Royal Oaks are really caring. They are exceptionally very friendly and great! I would highly recommend this beautiful place to live.

I visited this facility

I would have to say that this is the best facility that I have ever visited in my caregiving career. The staff were very friendly and attentive to the clients, yet gave them the needed space to still classify it as independent living.

The view was amazing. They provided a garden for their clients to care for plants and to grow flowers, and the stream flowing behind the facility made a great water-flowing noise in the evening that my client said "gave her the best sleep ever."

I have now spent 7 years now in "Seventh Heaven" here at Royal Oaks where all of my needs are beautifully taken care of by well-trained, caring staff in an aesthetically pleasing environment among friendly, stimulating fellow residents. Activity choices are varied and voluntary. Meal hours are flexible with a wide choice of appealing menu items and dining companions. What more could anyone ask?

Not ready -- too young -- but circumstances convinced me it was time to bite the bullet and take the first step toward my Third Act in life. I've lived at Royal Oaks just a year, and have never had a moment of regret.
Beautiful campus, wonderful apartment, stress-free environment, stimulating intellectual and physical opportunities, caring and sensitive staff -- WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE?
