My mother has moved into Allegria at the Oaks. What I liked best is there are no set visiting hours. They're well taken care of there. They like the food. The only complaint of all the residents out there is they feed them too much. That's what they say, "They keep feeding us." I go out there and see what they're eating and the food looks good. They have all kinds of stuff. They got bingo and card games. They're doing something every day with them. The staff is great. They're all lovely and personable. They're always checking on the residents. I never go in there and see the staff sitting down, ever, and I'm in there every day. There are activities during the whole day, even at night. It needs a couple of updates on the building. Otherwise, it's not run down. Some rooms probably have to be painted, not extensive repairs, just cosmetic stuff.

Right now, Mom is in a place called Allegria at the Oaks and it's excellent. She's in the memory care part. They have plenty of activities and it's a smaller place. The food's not that good though; it's just OK. The aides and the nurses there are very good. The activities are great. They take them to the casino, they take them out to eat, and they have bingo. Tomorrow, they're going to have a hula party. They celebrate all the holidays. They have a movie night with popcorn. They give them snacks when they play bingo. They'll have sometimes soft pretzels and sometimes root beer floats. They're very active there. After they eat, they do different activities. They have a rest period, then they have lunch. Then after lunch from about 2:00 to about 3:30, they have more activities. It's a smaller facility, so they get better care. It's laid out nicely and it's clean. It doesn't smell like urine. If you want a private room, it's more money. She has a roommate, and they have their own bathroom and the two of them share. They both have a single bed, a closet, a nightstand, and a light. They both have their own TVs. It's a nice little place. The only thing is when your money's done, you're out of there, so that's our problem. If I had the money, I'd keep her there. They have a nice garden on the first floor. They grow watermelons and plants, and then upstairs they have benches. They have a gazebo.

I visited this facility

Allegria at the Oaks took us for a tour and showed us a little bit of everything. It was a short tour. The people were very, very nice. It seems like a very nice place. They showed us rooms, and their rooms seemed to be nice. They're not that big, but they were very clean. That was a place where you were allowed to bring your own furniture if you wanted to, and that was a good thing. I didn't see any activities, but I saw a group of people sitting around, and they were singing a song with somebody. We walked around the building, and they gave us an idea of what it was going to be like and stuff like that, and that was very helpful.

The gentleman in Allegria at the Oaks, Wesley, was the one who showed us all the activities and the different-sized rooms in the assisted living. When I said that my father-in-law would probably need a little more intensive care, he took us up to the memory care floor and showed us the rooms up there. He then showed us the dining room (which was very clean and appropriate) and everything that they provided. It was a very good tour. He was very professional, very kind, and explained everything very well. The facility was very nice and well-kept. They have games, church on Sundays, activities, and a garden that my in-laws could sit outside and enjoy.

Everything with Allegria at the Oaks has been good. I worked with Leah, she's one of the directors there. Any time I have questions about anything, she calls me back and they give me all the answers. They're on lockdown right now because of the outbreak, so they've been Facetiming my dad with me. He has dementia, so he has his good days and bad days, but all in all, he's good so far. So our move-in experience has been good. They have two different parts, one is just care and the other one's memory care. He's not used to eating the facility food. It's very, very clean. I've never seen an assisted living or nursing home so clean. I like that there's not a lot of people, they have about 90 people in total. Right now, they just went back to activities because they had a COVID outbreak. They have bingo, music, and they play games.

My grandfather has been living there for a few months. He is a very active and social guy. When I asked him the other day how things were going, he said "this is the best hotel I've ever stayed at"! He loves the food and talked about the different "projects" he's been working on. The activities seem great and he loves to paint and chat with the other residents. He's excited to go outside more now that the weather is nice and they have a little resident garden. When I visited, the facility looked clean and bright. Lunch was being served and the staff seemed attentive and the other residents looked happy. Overall we are very happy with Allegria.

I chose Allegria at The Oaks for my dad. The location was great, it was the closest one for us. Also, he was able to get a roommate option which cut the cost for $400 a month that helped a lot. I'm kinda glad we went that route with a roommate because with his Alzheimer's he doesn't remember and there's no interaction between them all. The other one gets up and out during the day, and my dad get a couple more of a later start. The other guy's a little earlier and start early to bed, they never called us. It's a little weird but I'm like ''you know what, that keep work out pretty good''. But the main, main reason we chose Allegria was we do the roommate and definitely the location was the big sell too. He moved early September so far, they've been pretty good but Covid makes things very complicated. Considering in the elderly system, they're trying to get people out coordinating from medical visits and also making sure that they don't carry things back in and stuff, so they're very cautious with that. And a lot of times with memory care you notice like missing doctor visits and stuff. You take them and drop them off but with Covid, you can't do that, unless it's a true emergency. So, they are really struggling, and the staff were doing a great job, they have to deal with a lot of medical appointments, a lot of zoom meetings and stuff with the patients which is a new learning curve for all of them just because it is a high consuming. They're doing really great and communication is very good. I know they're busy, so I leave a voicemail, and if they don't respond within like 24-hours I definitely give them a call and I can get a hold of somebody. Right now, I haven't had anything that's really true emergency. I was only able to see him once so far and it was due to Covid and stuff, that was about 6 weeks after I dropped him off, they were very, very careful with the restrictions of people coming in. They would send him outside once, he looked good, the staff she'd taken good care of him. The medical department and his kidney specialist say his kidney, his levels are actually doing better. So, they are definitely taking care of him food wise. They do try to encourage him to get out and interact with people which may not be the best for him, he can be a little bit of an introvert, but they make the effort, and that's what I ask. My dad does not complain about the food, so I assume it's good.

My mother was a past resident of Allegria at the Oaks. I think they were great, everything was good, it was very clean, and the staff was helpful. It was a positive experience, but she just wanted to go home. The dining area is always clean, and she has no complaints with the food. They have something new every day, they always play games, and they always kept them busy.

We visited Allegria at the Oaks, the experience was very positive. The lady who gave us the tour was in charge of admissions and marketing. She was a very young at heart and lively lady who gave us a very good review and a good picture of what the community was like. They were updating and working on the facilities to make them more attractive. The residents had nice, big rooms. There was a shed out back and very pretty surroundings. It's for people who love a country setting. We didn't choose it because my brother-in-law grew up in the Bronx and likes to go to Wawa and places like that, and there's nothing for him like that in this community. He'd feel confined there. The place itself, the kind of care, and the personal interaction between the staff and residents was great. It's a great place and would be perfect for someone else. I saw a couple of rooms that were larger than average compared to the other places we saw.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. My name is Brenda and I am the "young at heart" woman who toured you and I thank you personally, and on behalf of Allegria at the Oaks, for such a glowing response to our community and myself! We do have a Wawa within 2 miles of our community, as well as many other shopping and dining areas. The Neshaminy Mall and Oxford Valley Mall are also in very close proximity with a bus stop right at the bottom of our driveway. There are also many opportunities for our residents to get out and about on our weekly bus trips. We go to the malls, movies, dollar store, museums, and dining on a regular basis and the residents love it! Again, thank you for visiting and for your kind words!

I visited this facility

I toured the memory care of Allegria at the Oaks. I liked it, but I was a little disappointed that they're doing some construction inside, though they made it sound like they're only doing it for two weeks. Their dining area was also under construction, but that's the kind of thing you can't help when somebody else takes over. I guess I was just disappointed because I have visited several places and they're my favorite one, and they didn't call me the next day. The place itself was OK, but because of the whole package, I liked what I saw.

Provider Response

We take pride in not only the services we provide but also the appearance of our facility. That is why the renovations were done and we are happy to announce they are complete and look amazing! We also like to give the families a day or two to digest everything from their tour, especially when we know they have been to more than one place on that day but make it a point to reach out within three days. If this was not the case we do apologize. Please give us a call and we will happily discuss further.

I visited this facility

It was big with close to 100 residents. They had some single rooms, but more were companion rooms, which would not have been the right fit for my mother. The person I talked to was new, so it was more of a perfunctory tour. There was an entertainer at that time, which the residents were enjoying. They had a very nice menu and choice of selections, so that was nice. It was in a residential area that was not in walking distance to stores.

My father has been at Oaks for over 5 years. He just turned 103 years old 2 weeks ago. He and my mother entered the facility together, they were both in the assisted living section upon entering. I was very pleased with the care they both received, especially mom at the time. If a concern was brought to their attention, it was remedied. Since entering, they have restructured and redecorated. They grounds are wonderful. The first floor was redesigned for memory care, which my father has recently been moved to. I am so pleased with that transition. He seems happier and more involved with the activities. More difficult for him was not speaking English and being able to communicate, but the staff went out of their way to include him. They even have a Russian speaking activities person who has been a God send. I am there just about every day at dinner. The food looks appetizing and nutritious, menu options are given every day for anyone who might want something different. Thank you to the caring staff and employees !

It is a nice facility. The rooms are nice. The food is good, and she is happy there. The whole place is nice. There are a few things that we are a little surprised about, but overall it is a good place. I will say we are satisfied with the care. I will recommend them to others.

The people are extremely caring, the staff is very efficient, and the facility itself had kind of a warmth to it -- kind of like an extended home for my mother-in-law. She was there for a 2-week respite care, and she ended up having a roommate. They became very good friends, so she had a very good experience while she was there. We had lunch there one day, and it was very good. They had the Olympics on in the evening for the people, and every night they watch Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune, Bingo and parlor games. One woman across the hall from my mother-in-law has a son who plays the harp for people for an hour and a half, so she really enjoyed that.
