The Oaks of Orangeburg is a cordial, receptive assisted care facility. I would say that the staff is very helpful and appears to be conscientious and proactive with the services that are being provided to my family members. The upkeep is very good. I have no complaints. They have daily activities that include celebrations, holidays, birthdays, and special occasions. They have field trips. They have arts and crafts. They have different community resources to come in to provide information and to do activities, civic community organizations, and religious community organizations. They have chaplains that come in. It's just a multitude of things. They have multiple dining areas, and they are clean and well-kept. And then also, there are some patients who receive their meals in their room, and the meals are timely. I can't speak for the taste of it. I'll just have to say, that my family members have not complained tremendously.

My mother is at The Oaks of Orangeburg. The physical therapy team is excellent. That's what I like the most. However, they can do better with the food that they serve. My mother has been in rehab. Overall, they're pretty good staff, but I think they're understaffed at times. And the food in a rehab place is a lot of processed food, which I don't like. For the rehab, there's not many activities. They have a calendar of activities though for the ones that are there permanently. They have a place where they can worship. They have a courtyard. They have a place where they can go out for fresh air and they have a salon. I like the Oaks because they have everything when it comes to care. They have physical therapists, they have doctors that come in, and they have nurses. Even the people that live in independent living have access to the nursing staff.

Our first choice was The Oaks of Orangeburg, but it wasn't affordable for us. As a whole, the place was amazing. It was nice, clean, the staff was nice, very friendly, and even if it wasn't the place I could go, they were helpful in trying to find other places. They had things like a microwave and a small refrigerator, and it was nice. They have a pond or a little lake area.

I found The Oaks of Orangeburg, and we're finalizing move-in at the end of this month. I liked what I saw. The food was delicious and we got to sample the food. So far, everybody was welcoming and able to help if I needed anything. They have a little bit of everything. They showed me a few things. They have a library, gameroom, exercise room, and hair salon. The rooms were very nice. It's very spacious.

The rooms are set up like a hospital setting. Staff is not qualified to assist residences with dementia. Also not enough staff. As far as amenities not much of anything. When they were empty my mom qualified for the facility but soon as they became full they gave 30 day notice to leave.

My mom used to live in The Oaks of Orangeburg, and it was a nightmare. She lived in an individual house, which they have an extremely high entrance fee. It's so much per month, and we can't get our money back until they sell her house to someone else. They offered lots of beautiful places out in the country. It's got fishponds, and its own river. It's beautiful. There's a lot of golf carts and everything. The houses have gotten to be very rundown. From my understanding, they've just changed ownerships and CEOs. Hopefully they'll pick up, but we we're not pleased at all. The food was good. We were never involved in any of the activities because Covid hit. They wouldn't let people get together. They would not even let me take groceries to her individual house.

My father is at Methodist Oaks. I really don't know much because he's been in quarantine for two weeks, so I can't really see him or anything, but they seem to be taking good care of him. The facility is great. It's 600 acres of senior living. They told us we could check the menu, but he's on a puree diet, so it doesn't really matter. They were the least expensive we found so far. They quarantine everybody who gets there for 14 days. They're not allowed in the public. They have assisted living and skilled nursing.

My mom has been at Methodist Oaks for seven years. For the first part she was in assisted living and things were really going well. When they moved her, when she got to the care after assisted living, everybody was in wheelchairs and she could still walk, but she was having a little bit of trouble getting out before she could get to the cafeteria and stuff, so they put her in a wheelchair and she fell after about a week that she had gotten down there. She had never fallen before, so we were just thinking that maybe the move wasn't agreeing with her. But since they've gotten her in a wheelchair and it's got some alarm on it, so when she stands up, they are aware that she doesn't need to be walking off or anything. She's gotten used to it and she seems happy now. For a while she was kind of confused, but now she is settled. They have a game room and an activity director, and I think they do little exercises with light muscle stretch bands and those rubber balls and things. They make little crafts and do things like that. Overall, we've had more positive experiences than we had negative. For the people around Orangeburg County, it is probably the best facility.

The Oaks was well run and very reasonably priced. They offer fairly good size accommodations. Food was good but I didn't like the meal plan in particular. With regards to activities, they have very active fitness center, walking trails, biking trails, swimming, etc. From the price standpoint, it's very affordable and I think it's a very good community.

I visited Methodist Oaks on a regular basis. I have church members, friends and family members in the Oaks. I highly recommend anyone who have a loved one and friend that needs excellent care, go visit the Oaks. Speak with counselors and administration. They are professional and understands your family needs. They also have independent living facilities. You can never go wrong at the Oaks.

I am a past client of this provider

The Methodist Oak is extremely hospital-like and is a massive facility. The residents can walk or wheel themselves in from one end to the other. The assisted living and the skilled nursing are all in one place. That setup just doesn't work for somebody in between, like my mother, who doesn't really need memory care and skilled nursing. She was a paying resident. When she had UTI, they told me that I had to get somebody to sit with her on a 24-hour care. What am I paying for if I had to get someone else to take care of her? The staff is poorly trained. They didn't know how to handle her and they didn't really qualify. They didn't test her for UTI too, so I pulled her out. It's not a locked down facility so they try to watch everyone as much as they can. They don't have the right facilities and staff to handle someone with full dementia, like one of my aunts. My 3 aunts are there on Medicaid. They don't have money. On the good side though, they have a place to stay. There were a couple of doctors that visit. But one of the doctors is retiring. I don't know how one doctor can see everybody in such a huge facility. It's also hard to find another doctor in such a small town.

I visited The Oaks recently for my mother. What I like best about this community is the facility itself. The place is really wonderful. It is a very clean place. All the people and staff are all warm, friendly and helpful. The only thing is that it's really expensive for us. For people that have the money for it, it's a very very nice place to live. They also have staff that will provide meals for you, but they also have individual living. They have apartments and houses and assisted living. They all have their medical facilities right there. It's really a great place to stay.
