Independent Living Reviews for Linus Oakes Retirement Village

I visited this facility

I've visited Linus Oakes. I actually had dinner there. It was very nice but it's just not affordable for me. They have transportation and lots of different activities. They only have one meal a day though, that was one drawback for me. They have a kitchenette in the rooms and they're really nice. The staff were all very nice, it's a friendly place. I went with two of my friends and we signed up for dinner. The food was excellent but I would have wanted for the breakfast and lunch to be included too. Most of the other places I visited offer three meals a day. They have a lot of units and they have cottages too. Part of the problem that I had was the large buy-in amount when you go in. It was just not in my budget.

I visited this facility

My visit with Linus Oakes Retirement Village was short. They didn't seem to want to take me around the facility at all. I just went in the door and met one of the residents there who said not to go anywhere else because it's the best place and so on. The only thing I could say about it is that it's a little more spendy than what I was planning on, but the location was fine and the facilities were very fine. It just seemed like the people didn't wanna follow up on showing me around, maybe they're busy, but the person who normally shows people around wasn't there or something. It was probably because I didn't make an appointment. At first, I thought I would just go and take a look at the place, but it was hard for me to find it because it's hilly in Roseburg and they're on the wrong side of the hill. So, I just left and made a mental note to come back. They followed up, however, and I got an email or something, asking me if I want to make an appointment and come back. The facility has been there close to 20 years, but everything there was kept up nicely. You would say that it's only built last year because everything was in good condition. They didn't have much parking; you can have parking for one vehicle and that's all. Its condition was topnotch, it looked appealing, and everything looked like it was kept up perfectly. They’re pretty expensive and they have the thing where you buy in, so we’re talking many thousands of dollars just to move in there. They had an option to rent, but they’re higher than anybody else.

Provider Response

Hi Albert! Thank you so much for visiting Linus Oakes Village. I'm sorry I wasn't on site to meet with you in person. An appointment isn't mandatory: I do take walk ins when I'm available. But sometimes I'm away from the office, so an appointment is the best option. I do hope that you are able to come back for a proper tour - I'd love to show you around our wonderful village. Warmly,

I visited this facility

Linus Oakes was right behind a hospital. The people were nice and the residents were outside gardening. It had an elevator in it. I saw people playing cards and everybody seemed very satisfied. They only offer one meal a day and I'd like to cook, but they only have a kitchenette. The rooms had a lot of storage places and they have a little space downstairs where you could also put your things, and I was impressed with that. The staff was nice. The rooms were better than the others and they had a little bit bigger of living room, with a TV, a sofa, and whatever else you want.

Provider Response

Thank you for posting a review! We greatly appreciate your time and your visit to Linus Oakes Village. Every home at Linus Oakes has a kitchen with a range (4 burners and an oven), refrigerator/freezer, and most homes also have a dishwasher. The apartments have a kitchenette with efficiency appliances and the cottages have a large kitchen with full-size appliances. If you love to cook, I highly recommend a cottage, that also features a large built-in pantry! Warmest regards, Linus Oakes Village

I am/was a resident of this facility

We have been here at Linus Oakes for about 10 days, and we feel really at home. It gets high marks in every category. Everyone works or lives here for a number of years because they're so happy with it. The other community is good, but Linus Oakes is even better. It is also extremely well kept. I definitely would recommend this place.
