My friend has been in Oakmont of Escondido Hills for two weeks now. It's been pretty good, but he's having some difficulty settling in, which is common for people, so it's going pretty well, I guess. The room is small, but it's nice. The staff is wonderful, and they work with me regularly. He has hospice care, too, and the hospice staff is really good. It's a small facility, so it's kind of cozy. They have extensive grounds. I think they have 4 acres outside and with courtyards for both the memory care unit and for their regular facility. They also have casitas for independent living people, so it's a complete community. They have an award-winning dining program there that is very popular with family and friends. I haven't had the food myself, but I'm told it was really good.
They have a movie theater and they have movies twice a day, in the afternoon and in the evening. They have an activity director in the memory care area, and I'm interacting with this person. They have kind of interactive driving and flying, like a video game, for the people plus the usual Bingo and other kinds of things that you will find for the senior residents. If the residents prefer it, they have some one-on-one activities. They're actually a really good facility and really good to work with. The staff is wonderful. They just replaced the carpet there, but the facility itself is very clean and very elegant. It is older, it's not brand new, but it still has the looks of a boutique hotel. I haven't been really participating in any activities, but the activity director is really, really good.
