Assisted Living Reviews for The Oaks on Parkwood

My mom is in Oaks On Parkwood, and she's doing really well. She had been there 4 years ago for rehab, and she liked the facility, so she chose to go back there. She has dementia, so she has her own room there, and they help her with everything. They provide her meals and all the comforts of life for her.

We had a good experience at the Oaks. They had a lot of staff turnover, but they were honest and apologetic about it. It wasn't quite well organized. The property was very spread out, and we didn't feel that would be best for my father-in law. The cleanliness was very good. My biggest concern was they didn't have any sort of security in the independent living and the assisted living. The had little dining areas where they bring the food in each of the individual homes in the independent living side.

My dad stayed at The Oaks for about a month altogether. It is very attractive, and they have several levels of care, so all that is very good. The only problem was there really was no communication between the doctors, the nurses, and the staff. My dad did occupational, physical, and speech therapies. They really did not communicate with each other. He ended up with an infection and was dismissed with an infection in his arm. He still is having off and on problems because of that. They had put him on a restricted thickened liquid and mechanical soft diet, so he lost weight and became dehydrated, and we finally convinced them to take it off of that. Once he got regular food, it was very good. As for the physical appearance and cleanliness, it didn’t smell like a nursing home, and the food has always been very good. It was just the lack of communication between the staff that was the problem.

Do not recommend facility. Management is very unprofessional. Doesn't provide proper care for residents. Double diaper, doesn't change residents properly, fail to assist and insure proper feeding, change medication without sponsor permission, move residents without proper notification and doesn't give true and accurate information about resident. Nice facility but doesn't provide safe secure and quality care.

I visited and liked The Oaks on Parkwood. It was very clean and updated. The staff was very helpful. I looked at both the independent and assisted living, and it is one of the better facilities I have seen. The dining area was very clean and very open.

I had previously stated i was not impressed with the cleaning department and want to apologize for that. My concerns were immediately recognized and through no fault of personal at the oaks were resolved. The staff at the oaks are not only kind and patient and engaging with their residents but also to the families of the residents. It is a beautiful and warm environment in which to live. 5 stars for sure.

My mother is in The Oaks on Parkwood. It is wonderful, and we're very pleased. There are lots of things available, but she isn't participating. They have exercise everyday, bingo, movie time, bands come in, different speakers, and services on Sunday, and they take them to different places in the area. They have an indoor pool, good sidewalks for walking, a beautician, a manicurist, a podiatrist, and a doctor that comes. They have a big living room and a library.

The Oaks on Parkwood is very nice and very clean. Everything is very convenient and accessible for mom. They check on her often and they provide a lot of things for her. She's not able to drive now, so they will pick her up and take her to church, to the doctor's office, or to Walmart. They're all planned outings.
