Assisted Living Reviews for Fair Oaks Senior Living

I visited this facility

My sister just moved into Fair Oaks of Pittsburgh yesterday. The rooms are very nice and the staff is very, very nice. We met the director, the administrator, the bookkeeper, the nurse, the maintenance man, and the cook. We met everybody. The food is very good and their dining area is very nice. They have all kinds of activities like Bingo and you can play cards; they have church service and trips to different sites and restaurants -- different things like that. There is a lot for the residents to do. It is a non-profit facility. It is very reasonable compared to some of the other assisted living places and the staff members are very, very well-trained -- they have been there for a long time. The director has been there for twenty-five years.

I am a friend or relative of resident

I have a family member living at Fair Oaks. My sisters and brother go there weekly to visit. Every time we go there the garbage cans in the room are full and need to be emptied which we do. Clothes need to be hung up and at lot of times dirty clothes are thrown inside the closet on the floor. The food is awful. The best thing is the coffee. In recent months they got rid of all telephone land lines and required family members to purchase cell phones for all residents. These people are all in their 80's and 90's. They don't even know how to use a cell phone. I guess the owners needed to save money. The $3000.00 dollars or more they charge a month isn't enough. They even ask for donations so they can give a bonus to their employees at Christmas time. How cheap can you get? The place does look nice but eyes can be deceiving. The employees I have met are nice but they can only do what is allowed.

I am a friend or relative of resident

Fair Oaks Pittsburgh My father is currently a resident of Fair Oaks, and our family could not be happier with their service. They prepare fantastic food for the residents, 3 times a day. There is many social activities to participate in. He even met a girlfriend within two weeks of being a resident. There are multiple religious services provided as well. I am very happy with the Nursing. He has had multiple strokes in his past, and since he has been admitted to Fair Oaks, he has been taken care of properly. I highly recommend sending any of your loved ones to Fair Oaks. They truly have a beautiful ground, and it is most affordable.

Health & Wellness

Your loved one’s health and safety is our top priority at Fair Oaks. Learn more about our residential care services below.

Licensed Nurse Service

A licensed nurse is on staff from 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM Monday-Friday to offer care for our residents. The nurse is also on call 24 hours a day for emergencies.

Residential Care Aide (RCA) Service

Fair Oaks residents are offered Residential Care Aide (RCA) services in their private one or two-room suites. This allows for greater independence while also providing the care the resident may need for their daily tasks of living. Families will have a greater peace of mind knowing their loved ones are being given the care they need in a private setting.

Each resident will have a Resident Assessment Support Plan (RASP) created by our residential care services staff members in conjunction with the resident and their family members. RCAs provide care for the residents throughout the day, including escort service, assistance with bathing, personal grooming, dressing, and bed making. RCAs also prepare laundry for pickup, empty trash, and provide light housekeeping.

Medication Distribution Service

A trained professional (med-tech) will order, chart, pour, and distribute all medications. The med-tech works directly with the doctor and pharmacists acting on behalf of the resident receiving the service. Fair Oaks of Pittsburgh's preferred provider is Johnson’s Pharmaceutical Services.

Rehabilitation Service

Located on the lower level of the living facility, Fair Oaks leases space to Fox Rehab Services to provide on-site rehab for speech, physical, and occupational therapy.


To provide our residents with a true independent senior living experience, transportation is provided by Fair Oaks of Pittsburgh through ACCESS, a coordinated, shared-ride paratransit service, for all residents at no additional cost. Health Services can provide an aide to escort residents to appointments for a fee.
