Assisted Living Reviews for Oakmont of Cardinal Point

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

The facility Is a beautiful place with excellent views. It appears to be kept clean and organized. The staff always is there to help but is limited on activities because of the pandemic. The staff helped tremendusly when trying to setup the our friend who lives there now. And made it affordable for her. Thank you for the hard work. Everyone is well aware of how good the food is that is and how much all the residents enjoy it.

Cardinal Point is very positive. The staff is warm, caring and professional. The facility itself is very nice. It’s a medium facility; not too big and not too small. It has nice yards and the apartments are spacious and nice too. The food is good. The activities are fantastic and varied. They offer a lot of great excursions and services. They’ve got everything there. They have a new assisted memory care facility which they just built.

I used to play bridge at Cardinal Point weekly. I don't know it so well, but the food is excellent. It is a beautiful facility which is like a resort facility. Most of the residents that I talked with were quite satisfied. It is very nice and expensive. Each of my visits there are very pleasant, and the staff is very nice.

My mother was a resident at the assisted living portion of Cardinal Point on the island of Alameda. Pros: -The staff is terrific. Everyone was willing to go the extra mile for my mother, who was made to feel like part of the family and not just another client. -The facilities are very nice. The building, which is relatively new, faces the estuary just across from Jack London Square and the views of the boats coming and going are very nice. Cardinal Point has its own movie theater, small pool, and computer room. The rooms themselves were also nice though most of the rooms on the assisted living wing did not have particularly good views. -The activities were superior to other facilities we looked at. There were interesting trips for the residents. Cons: -There was a noisy resident in the room next to my mother's and the management was reluctant to do anything about this even though it interfered with my mother's sleep. -The vast majority of residents were in the independent living section of Cardinal Point. Personally I view this as an advantage but assisted living residents, who by definition will not be in as good shape as the independent living residents, are definitely in the minority. Overall Cardinal Point in Alameda is an excellent facility.

I visited this facility

Oakmont of Cardinal Point was really nice, like a fancy hotel. The place felt light, airy, and calm. They had a lobby, dining room, library, café/bar, game room, and exercise room. The amenities looked nice, but I didn't see people actually using them, except for two people in the game room.

We liked the location of Cardinal Point because it's in Alameda. The facility looks nice. The sales lady that we talked to was really nice, competent, and answered all of our questions. It was a pretty good experience, and we're on a waiting list right now. We went on a tour. They had a swimming pool, recreation area, dining hall, food service, on-site medical stuff, and trips. They had an activity plan. A shopping center and airport are close, as well as restaurants and dining in Alameda.

I was very impressed with Cardinal Point at Mariner Square. The buy-in was OK, but the monthly rent was a little steeper than what I feel I can handle at this time. It looked wonderful and very pleasant. The lady that showed me around was very pleasant and helpful.

My husband and I were very favorably impressed by this facility. There was an attractive entry, nice patio and gardens, good activities, and the rooms have lovely walk-in closets. The rooms overlook the waterfront, and would be great for watching the fireworks. The facility sits on piers, should be fine in case of an earthquake. There is a library nearby, and some shops, and more are being constructed. We were treated to a very nice lunch with well prepared vegetables.
