Assisted Living Reviews for The Oaks of Clearwater

I admitted my father at The Oaks of Clearwater for three weeks. I liked the facility. He was in an open, four-hospital-bed-type setting until his Medicaid kicked in. The room that he had on the memory care floor was very nice, though. Even if it was shared, it was separated off. All they shared was a little kitchenette and a bathroom. They had their own separate room, closet, and TV. One of the things I really liked was the activities that they had and the outside garden. They took them on a ferry once a month, went over to the beach, and had daily activities as well. The place was clean and the people were very friendly. It was very easy to get on the phone with my father.

I moved my mom at The Oaks of Clearwater. I chose this place because of the view. Literally when you walked into her apartment, all you see is water on both sides. When my mom wakes up in the morning, all she sees is the blue sky. Their rate also is one of the cheapest from all the places I’ve looked into. They have tons of activities with at least six activities.

I liked The Oaks of Clearwater a lot. However, it is high-rise living, so there aren't any porches or open windows. You're basically in a cement hole in the sky. I went back on a second occasion and looked at some of their villas. I was only able to see a one-bedroom that had not been refurbished, and it wasn't particularly inviting. Also, I wanted a two-bedroom. I have talked to the assistant to the executive director and she told me that the one that I saw had not been refurbished yet and that they always do that before move in. It needed some work or I couldn't possibly move in there. Overall, it's a very good place. The only person I met was the assistant to the executive director. She's very competent, has been there a while, and knew the answers to all of my questions. I did talk to one of their people in marketing for just a couple of minutes, and he did not seem to be a person I wanted to do business with. He just didn't seem to be prepared and know enough. They've got the usual facilities there, like a beauty parlor and a little exercise room.

I was looking for a place to put my mother after she had fallen and could not assist herself anymore so I came up on the Oaks of Clearwater and from the beginning the staff and management team were very very good to me and my mother. Not just because we were New but just because this is the way they are, 7 months later they are still caring loving helpful in every way possible and they go out of their way immediately if there is a concern of any kind whether it's from my mother or myself. I highly recommend the Oaks of Clearwater, it has surpassed all my expectations and it continues to do so from the highest level of Managment down to the kitchen staff they truly care about the work place and the people that live there whether it be assisted living nursing home care or any other specialty that they offer, a great place for someone to call home for the rest of their lives.

My mother-in-law chose The Oaks of Clearwater because it is near Clearwater Beach. She is very happy there. She likes it very much. They have independent living, assisted living, and memory care. My mother-in-law has been there for less than a month, but so far, we are happy with it. They have activities. They offer three meals a day. She is in the independent living, so she has her own apartment and it is very nice. She enjoys the food. It is diverse; it is not always the same thing. It is different things and things that she likes, so she is very happy with the food. Overall, my mother-in-law is very happy with the food, the facility, and the staff.

My mom was at The Oaks of Clearwater. It was good. The lady that took us in was very nice. They had quite a number of stories, and they only had two elevators, but during that time only one of them was working.

This is a 5 star review for the staff on the 2nd floor. Thank you for taking wonderful care of my Dad in his last few months of life. These caregivers are compassionate, caring, and professional. The took care of my Dad like family. I watch them also with the other residents and all I see is a true commitment in making all the patients happy and comfortable. There are no words to express my sincere thanks and gratitude for the great work you do. May God bless you all and thank you.

My wife is staying at The Oaks, and she hasn't been there long enough. She is in a ward with three other ladies. She was familiar with the area, and so far they prove to be very satisfactory. I'm satisfied with them.

I like the inside design of The Oaks of Clearwater. The view from the window is on the water. I like the activities that are available. They have Bingo, music, painting, and art classes.

The Oaks of Clearwater was a high rise. We were very impressed with this one. It was very nice, very clean, and I couldn't find anything that was wrong with it. We did have a meal there, and it was very good.

My aunts lived in The Oaks of Clearwater. When we signed up, their marketing people were superb, but the staff that actually worked there was awful. The food was fine. They had variety and an attentive staff. The room was nice and spacious. It had a nice view out to the bay. They had most activities I had seen in other place. The Oaks of Clearwater was more secure, but that's fine; it was quite appropriate.

The Oaks at Clearwater was the only place we can afford at that time. They were working with us and waiting for us to get my parents qualified for a Medicaid waiver. My parents have been there for a little over two years now. On the whole, I would give them 6 out of 10. Their menu is too highly salted for seniors. Not too long after my mother moved in there, she went into congestive heart failure, which she had not had any problems with at other times. The doctor took it back to her eating the food, mainly their soups, at that facility. So, she no longer eats any of the soups and has had no further problems with it. Their food is fairly good, but they had a major turnover in both the dining-kitchen area and management in the last two years. There is probably not a whole lot of people still there that were there when they first moved in. Their care is fairly good. We haven't really had any problems with the staff. They might be a little slow in getting things done, but I think they are actually a little overworked, so they are not be able to put as much attention on the job as they normally would and I feel that they are a bit understaffed. The facility itself is kept up pretty much. It has a nice view. They are by the water, so you can see the view. My parents really enjoy that, especially my father. They are in a one-bedroom, one bath apartment. It's well-kept, but not a lot storage. It is just barely adequate for a couple, but they are okay. But the drawback of the facility is that they only have two elevators. For their size, the number of residents that they have, and the size of some of the wheelchairs, walkers, and stuff, those two elevators are not adequate. My parents are not really happy there, mainly for that reason. There are some pros to the facility, but we are finding more cons lately.

The impressive thing about The Oaks is the location, they were right by the water there, it's pretty nice. The only bad thing about that place that I know of, they only have two elevators there. I believe that's a 15-floor building or 16 floors and there are only 2 elevators that operate up and down in that building. If one goes down, you're in trouble. And at lunch time, you have these people who are on wheelchairs, walkers and scooters and they all try to get in and it's irritating because you wait for the elevator. Sometime, I'm sitting there waiting for the elevator to get to me for about 20 minutes. I'm not exaggerating, I'm telling you. You're talking about these people, they're pretty old, they can't move fast or run downstairs and they have to wait for these elevators. They only have one large elevator, the other one is a small one. They do have a third elevator which is in the cafeteria downstairs but it goes up to the second floor only. They'll serve you steak but you have to buy it separately. On the 15th floor, they dine and if you want a steak, you have to pay extra for a steak so the food there is not all that as well. If you want to make a long distance phone call, you have to pay for it as well and the money that I'm paying for that place, I pay $2000 a month, is not worth it. The only thing that that building's got going for itself is where it's at. I'm going to get ready to pull my father out of there. I'm not so happy with it and I notice other people that have moved in and moved out because you have no contract there. You move in, you deposit $1500 non-refundable and then you pay $2000 a month and then every year they go up. Other than that, the location is nice, the building is nice. The staff did pretty cool. I had no run-ins with the staff so far.

We visited The Oaks of Clearwater earlier this week. The staff was friendly and made us feel welcome. One thing we noticed was every resident who we ran into said hello to us and asked if we were looking to move someone in. If so, they will love it. I was surprised at the question and the comment. At other places we looked at the residents looked down, didnt seem happy and basically ignored what we going on around them. Not what I am looking for. We are having a family meeting on Labor Day to make our decision but Oaks of Clearwater has my vote hand down. If you are facing the same decision we are, I suggest you take a look for yourself.

I removed my mother from this facility in the spring and am very happy with her new home. What a difference the right staff can make in geriatric care. The aids and nursing staff were rude and the management does not respond to complaints. There are only 2 elevators for 13 floors worth of residents and I could not walk up and down the stairs. I had to wait for up to 10 minutes for an elevator. I could not figure out what would happen if they had a true evacuation type emergency. My Mom liked the food and wait staff in the dining room. I could tell when they had not given my Mom her medicine and often questioned the dosing times. They would leave her in her wheelchair for long periods of time.

My father in law was on the rehab floor for 9 months after a broken hip and loved it. The therapy was great and very prompt. The nursing staff was very loving and respectful towards everyone and the food was amazing!

The staff was pleasant at the Oaks. However, the facility was older-looking and it wasn't clean. It may have been but it didn't look like it because the carpeting and the like were old. My mother was not pleased with that. The dining area was okay but we didn't eat there. They need to update their waiting or lobby area, hallways and their carpeting.

We were looking for an independent living facility for my parents. The Oaks was fine. It's a clean place but not that immaculate. The Oaks was more of an assisted living type. The model room they showed us was small. We were looking for more of a kitchen and more of an apartment. There was a refrigerator and a microwave but no kitchen. Everybody who worked there was very, very nice.

Our visit to The Oaks was pleasant. The people are nice and the atmosphere was fairly good. We did not have any meals there because my husband wanted to leave. The rooms upstairs were nicely accommodated, but they were very small. But the view was absolutely terrific, looking out the bay waters. They don't have a pool, they need to put a pool in somewhere. They only have a small exercise room with two pieces of equipment.

It's a very sociable place. My mother had a sister in-law who lives there before so she is fully familiar with the facility. The entire facility is of high standards. The environment is clean and the food is good. It has good organization and activities for the residents. They take them on a short day trips. They provide transportation if the residents need to see their doctors. What's also good is that the monthly fees are very reasonable. Their dining room is very well maintained and well furnished. My mother is 92 years old and is still refusing the idea of going to an assisted living facility for now. She likes The Oaks and when she's ready, this is gonna be the place for her.

This facility was supposed to help my Aunt in regards to her well being and ability to get around without the fear of losing track of where she was, falling over, becoming a danger to herself and forgetting to take her medications. During her stay there she was found to be unconscious in her living quarters on several occasions. At one point in time I actually received a call from one of the attendants saying that she had been wandering off into the property at nighttime. On the last incident she was found to need treatment in a hospital after having fallen off of her couch one evening. A fellow resident and neighbor there called me to inform me that my Aunt had been hospitalized and that the police had come in to remove her. While there they found approximately 50 bottles of unused medications that had been prescribed to her. At that point I insisted that there be a DEA investigation or some type of malpractice investigation, but to no avail. I was repeatedly ignored until her son and I decided to have her moved elsewhere. Ultimately this is the worst assisted living facility I have had the displeasure of being acquainted with. I would never suggest anyone consider placing their loved one with them.

It was clean, which is a very important quality, and everyone inside seemed well cared for with plenty of staff and workers to tend to the patients. There was no unpleasant smell, in comparison to some other homes i have visited, and this was a welcome change. The Dietary needs of the patients were taken into consideration, and a record of each patient's dietary restrictions and preferences was compiled on a computer. Very efficient, clean and well run organization which cared for its residents and their home. Polite and intelligent staff members.

My mother stayed at The Oaks of Clearwater for about 5-6 years and it was not a very good experience at all. She was living independently and she had to take pills for her high blood pressure and I asked them to remind her so she would not forget to take it, and they charged extra for that. But they did not take the pill to her, they made her go to the 8th floor for the medication at 7 p.m. which was her bedtime too. They said they could not take it to her room. I moved her then to the assisted living area because she had a stroke. They had one person on the floor and that was not good at all. They asked me if I wanted to pay for a companion for my mother. It was a companion program where they sat with the residents so they won't be lonely for an extra charge. I had no idea that my mom rode the elevator all night long and she got worse. One of the companions I saw every week informed me about it. So then, the staff said my mom needed to be in the memory care area which was on the 4th floor. My sister and I checked it and it was horrible. The residents were walking around dirty, smelled like they messed their pants and there were not enough staff. It was locked-down so the residents never got outside at all like an insane asylum. There were two staffs for 15-16 residents. They served my mom the papers that she had to vacate the premises without talking to her and I was very upset. If you looked at the second floor, you would be appalled. It had not been refurbished and the dining area in the second floor was a joke. They only had two elevators for all the fifteen floors of residences. But it was not all bad, the place looked good from the lobby. The dining room was lovely and the food was delicious. Some on the dining staff and staff were wonderful but where my mom was, it wasn't good.

This is a pretty special place. Dad is finally getting the independent living social life he needs to stay healthy. Every staff member my sisters and I have met in this community is caring, outgoing, solicitous and fun! Especially fun. Dad is happy. From his gorgeous apartment he has a beautiful view of Clearwater bay. The neighborhood is lovely. The community is walking distance to downtown Clearwater as well as to the local medical facilities if Dad needs to go "off campus" for care. But everything at The Oaks is close, the food is nutritious -- and good! Dad had lost interest in his own "cooking," but now he is eating 3 meals a day, and loving it. The community is affordable and within Dad's budget, so he stays independent in all ways. My sisters and I are happy to see that he is finally happy.
