I visited Oakmont of Montecito. It's nice, but the reason we didn't go for them was that they don't speak Chinese, and my mom can't speak English very well. I checked the rooms and they were clean. There was nothing wrong with the place. The staff was friendly. The food looked looked interesting.

Montecito is fantastic, and it was really the most elegant one, with fountains and everything. It was also the most expensive. Everything was OK, and the rooms were fine. The staff who accommodated us was good and attentive. Based on everything that I have gathered and all the other places I have seen, they're over-priced. The people that I have interacted with were friendly and nice.

The people at Montecito were very nice, but the décor was a bit dated. The place was gigantic and felt a little dirty. They had a pool with a lift for people who could not go down, which I thought was nice. They had a workout room, a restaurant, a café, a social hall, and a game room.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to review our community. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed much of your visit. Though our campus is spacious, our community is small enough that everyone can get to know each other if they choose, allowing our residents to make lasting friendships with neighbors and staff. We are sorry to learn that you felt things were not as clean as they should be on the day of your visit. We pride ourselves on keeping our community in tip-top shape at all times; would you please drop me a line at your earliest convenience to share more details on how we can improve in this area? You can call or drop by my office anytime. Warm Regards, Kurt Knauer, Senior Executive Director

Montecito is excellent, I definitely loved it, and it was great. It was clean, the staff was friendly and eager to help, and it looked like it had a lot of amenities for the residents. However, it was very expensive.

I really liked Montecito. I went there on a whim. It was nice and clean, and everyone was pleasant. We had lunch, and the food was good. I liked the pool that they had and everything just seemed like it would fit my needs. The staff was very nice.

Montecito Oakmont was not attainable for me since the cost was too high. I liked the whole environment because it seemed very comfortable. I was very impressed. The staff was very nice, friendly and helpful. I liked the layout and the open areas where you could mingle with people.

We were very interested in Montecito Oakmont. There was nothing we did not like about the place. They had very comprehensive and genuine care, a very up-to-date facility, a great deal of scheduled activities, and a lot of amenities. The living quarters and dining room were beautiful. It is a very large place with very long hallways. It was laid out really well. It looked more like a hotel resort with its center courtyard, pool, and jacuzzi than a typical senior living facility.

My mom was at Montecito Oakmont. The residents were extremely happy, energized, and well taken care of. The staff was very positive and very friendly, and the wait staff was excellent. A five star rating applies to everything there, except maybe for the price. We paid quite a bit more for it; probably twice as much as what we’re paying here in Texas.

I am in Oakmont at Montecito (Montecito Oakmont Senior Living). I like that everything is done for me. I have a beautiful 2-bedroom apartment with an outdoor patio. I have 3 meals a day here. We have a dining room where I can meet other people. There is a very social atmosphere here. We are having a pianist that will come at 3 o'clock today to play the piano for an hour for the community. It is very nice that we always have some kind of a musical concert once a week. Everyday, we have card games, bingo, or scrabble. Everyday there are activities for the residents here. We have a bus that takes us to doctor's appointments and grocery shopping. They do my laundry. The staff is wonderful. I consider everybody here family. All of the girls that help me treat me like I am their mother. They love me here. I highly recommend it. The food is excellent. We have a 5 star chef in our dining room. We are very secure. We have gates all around the facility. We are on lock down after 9:30 at night, and nobody can come in unless you live here, and then you have to go to the front desk. It is safe here. I live with my little dog in the apartment. I have lived here for 2 months, and we haven't had any problems so far. We have a heated swimming pool, a hot tub, a Jacuzzi, and a walk-in bathtub. We have a nurse on staff here.

Oakmont is congenial and it has wonderful assistance. My husband and I are in the assisted living, so we do have some amenities that they don't have in independent living. They also have something they call Tradition, which is almost separate. It has every level of care you want.

Mom lived in Oakmont, but she passed away last week. We're very, very happy with Montecito. One of her friends was already living there. They're very, very cordial, very caring, and got to know the residents. We chose the facility because of the proximity to where we lived. It's beautiful, has wonderful food and caring staff, and is just top-notch all around, we felt. They offered different kinds of rooms, from independent to assisted to memory care, so we liked the fact that there were options. She could move as she needed, which she did wind up doing. We thought the rooms were lovely -- simple, but big enough. We only have good things to say.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I live in Montecito, and it's really nice here. It's a living community, and you may go with assisted living for quite a few more dollars. I don't like it here. The main reason is it is so far away from my family and friends. I was in San Francisco for the last 35 years, and people don't want to drive this far to see me. It seems that when I was in the city, I had constant people coming, and here, I'm very lonely. It's my only complaint because the people here are very nice. The grounds are beautiful, they keep them up, and I've made some friends. It's a 1-bedroom, and it has a little kitchen and one little bathroom. It has a fair-sized bedroom and a fair-sized living room. It's clean and it's OK. The food is fair, but I am a gourmet cook, so I can't appreciate it like other people do. I know that they work hard, and they do have a varied menu. They have something going on all the time: cards, other games, movies. They have a bus and a person who will take you some places once in a while.

I liked Montecito. It was very nice but a little more expensive than the other facility I visited. I formed a very good impression as soon as I walked in.

I thought Montecito was very good. It's in a quiet community in a walkable area. It is in a safe community probably for sure. I thought the food was pretty good. The rooms and apartment were small. Montecito is the best one. They have a huge movie theater as well. It is probably the most expensive as well too. It is a very big place, and it was newish at the time we visited.

Memory Care Reviews for Oakmont of Montecito

December 16, 2021

By Carla

I visited this facility

I toured Oakmont at Montecito and had a great experience. The lady was very informative, very patient, and very knowledgeable. She went above and beyond with the information she gave me. It's just that the facility was much, much larger than what we needed. Their dining room area was smaller for the memory care, so it felt crowded to me. It was also older, but overall it was a nice facility. They were doing some remodeling of the rooms, and they looked nice.

Provider Response

Carla, we really appreciate your positive review! Our team strives to deliver an excellent experience, and are glad you found this to be the case during your visit. If you have further needs or questions, please reach out!

Out of 9 places we've been to, Oakmont of Montecito is one of two that we would consider bringing my mother to. My tour there was great. There was somebody there to greet us, there was somebody there while we waited for the director to make sure any needs we had were tended to (i.e. coffee, water, whatever). The interview with the director was great. We were there for the memory care unit, and I love the memory care unit. The rooms were nice, clean, and well-kept. The whole place was clean and well-kept as well, and there was the interaction between the staff and the residents. We weren't able to try the food because the residents were eating, but it smelled delicious and look good. And I would say from what I observed, it was well-balanced. I can't think of anything they need to improve on. The place was nice, there was adequate room, and activities were going on to keep the residents busy and engaged. There was visitation going on, and it was just a relaxed, calm atmosphere.

I did a physical tour of Oakmont of Montecito before COVID. The staff member was phenomenal. She was great, very informative, gave me a lot of good ideas, and very positive. I was very impressed with the place. There's one unit with two people per bedroom and then you share a bath. The dining room was down the hall. It's a long hall, so Mom would have to learn to walk inside.

Oakmont of Montecito is very nice. We have a deposit down and we are waiting for a room there. The rooms are lovely and spacious. They have options with private bathrooms or shared bathrooms. They have a bird atrium for their memory care, which is lovely. Everybody was very professional.
