I visited this facility

We visited Washington Oakes for my mom. It was great; that's why we selected it. The rooms were very nice and spacious. The people were very friendly. They had very good rapport with the residents. It was just a really happy upbeat place. Everybody was happy and smiling. Everybody went out of their way to visit with my mom and make her feel welcome. It was one of the best places we saw. They have a list of probably 10 activities per day. They have a very active schedule. They have gym, library, and crafts. There were a lot of happy, upbeat, and positive people. There weren't a bunch old people staring at you; there were very young active people and that's what we needed.

I visited this facility

I have gone to Washington Oakes. It was pretty good, but they don't offer as many outings. The food was very good. They have really given us a lot of opportunities to go back, visit, and get a feeling of the place. It would probably be second on my list of places I like. The staff was nice. They had given us opportunities to see their rooms, and it was a nice, warm, inviting environment. I went with my neighbor, we liked it, and we would consider it. It is probably our second choice because they don't seem to offer as many outings.

Washington Oakes is located in a nice residential neighborhood that is close to shopping and other amenities. The building itself is beautiful! It was originally a schoolhouse in the 1900's. Residents live in their own apartments, allowing them to decorate as they wish. The center offers many trips and outings, and well as on premises restaurant, beauty salon, arts and crafts room, game room, a relaxing lobby and many other features! The staff is wonderful; everyone from the housekeepers to management is friendly and helpful. They also offer Assisted Living services for those who need it. Their staff is available 24 hours a day to help you answer any questions. Residents are close to shopping, restaurants, and various other activities, so many keep their cars on site in the centers off street parking. For those that can't drive, there are planned outings! Washington Oakes is a wonderful place to live!

I visited this facility

I went with my Mother to Washington Oakes. Beautiful community full of life. We met the general manager, and he was a very nice guy who wanted what was best for my mom. We didn't end up moving there because my mom needed memory care, but we would have if we could.
