Assisted Living Reviews for Fair Oaks Estates

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Our experience at Fair Oaks was not good. My mother has brain damage, so I don’t know how much of it was due to her lapse of memory that she tends to misplace things, but she reported missing articles of clothing, missing towels, and her iPad went missing at one point, so she thought people were stealing her stuff. I can’t say one way or another, but there were a number of times when there was this difference of opinion between what she was saying versus what they were saying. I’ve witnessed it myself and caught them straight up lying a few times. They had a very high turnover rate with staff. It seemed like every time I would go to visit, they were almost out of people, and they were just very rude sometimes. It was not a good place. The whole layout of the building is like a big square with a huge courtyard in the middle. There was a lady sitting in a wheelchair, and I thought she was just kind of hanging out in the sun or whatever. But as I walked by, she called my name and asked me to help her. It turned out that her wheelchair got stuck in the mud and she couldn’t get it up over the curb, and so I pushed her out of this mud, out of the sun, and wheeled her inside. There was a lady staff member standing right there who could have easily seen her and helped her in. I don’t know if she didn’t see her or what, but I got the impression that they were understaffed for the amount of people that they had. Mom was constantly asking for them to give her her medicine, and they were consistently late or just didn’t deliver. I was there at another time when somebody was screaming in the hallway because he was stuck and wanted me to help him off the bench and into his wheelchair, which I wasn’t really comfortable doing because I didn’t know if I would drop him or something. I walked literally around the entire building before I finally saw a staff member and told her about this guy screaming in the hall. The food was disgusting.

I visited this facility

I visited Fair Oaks Estates, and I loved it there. I was treated wonderfully. It was perfect. They had nice people; it was clean and had beautiful furnishings. It was a huge place and had a lot of things like a gym room, exercise room, and a cafeteria. I enjoyed it. My only one problem is that it’s a long walk from your room down to all of those.

I visited this facility

This woman that I'm trying to place is only 52 years old. She has much long-term memory but no short-term memory. Fair Oaks Estates specializes in memory care. It's a large place. The only thing I didn’t like about it is it is very large. It took up three or four large, 2-story buildings. However, it was still maintained beautifully and clean. The apartments were beautiful. They had a walk-in bath tub that impressed me. I only dealt with one lady, and she was very nice.

It's been a pretty good experience so far with Fair Oaks Estates. Mom's only been there for a few weeks. It's a nice facility. They have a lot of activities, they seem to be providing the care that she needs, and they're very friendly. She seems to be really enjoying all the activities. They have exercises, trivia, water colors, crafts, bingo, and sing-alongs. They have parties associated with holidays like super bowl party, as well as private parties like families can come in and have a big party. They can reserve the dining room. It's actually a really nice environment. It's very attractive with a really nice outdoor area. I think I like the size and the whole layout of it. It's medium. It has a courtyard in the middle and the facility wraps around the courtyard. It's rectangular in shape, so it's hard for them to get lost when they're walking around. It seem to be going well.
