Continuing Care Retirement Community Reviews for St. Paul's Towers

I visited this facility

This is a CCRC (continuing care retirement community) that offers independent living, assisted living, dementia care, and skilled nursing. I've had a client there for four years who started in independent living 15 years ago, then moved to assisted living, and is now in skilled nursing. I've not been at all happy with the care they provide. They park people in the activity room--and little happens in between activity periods. Just this past week, we discovered bed sores on her buttocks--the third time we've seen that kind of thing in the last few years. And the staff in each case was unaware.They're just not thorough in their care. It's a warehouse situation. They dress the residents and put them in a wheelchair for the day. They're dressed, fed, and that's it. They offer minimal care beyond that. There's not much interaction, no attempt to engage them...just the bare minimum. We've offered to provide dementia care instruction and were declined. The meals are fair, nothing special. There's just no attention to detail.

St. Paul's Towers in Oakland, CA

(I wrote this for ST. Paul's under another category, probably "assisted living". My experience with parents there has been very positive.) This is an excellent facility offering independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing all in one large building. My mother-in-law moved into a two bedroom apartment with my post-stroke father-in-law the year the facility opened. He died within a couple of years and she transferred to a one-bedroom apartment, where she lived for four decades. She repeatedly said how glad she was to have made the move and how happy she was with the facility. St.Paul's is next to Oakland's Lake Merritt Park, where one can listen to band concerts in summer, walk the three miles around the lake, visit the bird refuge, rent small boats, watch children play. For the active retiree it is an easy walk to BART (the rapid transit system with trains to San Francisco.) There are various lectures and other activities, and a movie once a week. Limousine service to city events. Driver to bank and to medical appointments. Family and friends may be included (for a fee) at the meals in the large dining hall. The meals are varied and there is a lunch buffet and a Sunday night buffet. For couples, it is convenient to visit a partner who is in a room with a different level of care. The atmosphere is welcoming. There are some gay couples and some members of racial minority groups. All are well treated by staff members and residents. DO check the price structure directly with the facility as prices on other web sites are not always up to date.
