Washington Oakes is excellent, the food and the staff is wonderful, and the rooms are beautiful. My loved one has a nice one-bedroom apartment.

I visited Washington Oakes and met two people on staff. They were really nice and somewhat knowledgeable, but the grounds looked old school, like an old brick building. It seemed fine, though. It is in a residential neighborhood within a block or two from the hospital. If you needed easy access to a medical center, you could walk there. There is a cancer center right there too, so for somebody with cancer, that would be fantastic. However, Washington Oakes didn’t seem like they provide much care, so if you needed more care, I don’t think you would go there. They did have a nurse on staff. They had set meal times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

My mom knew it was time, so she quit driving and moved into Washington Oakes. I think it'll be good for her. They have plenty of activities, all the cooking is taken care of, they provide cleaning services like changing of beddings. And transportation around town is taken care of so she can get to and from her doctor's appointments. There's also an emergency call station.

The experience at Washington Oakes was very nice. The rooms were very nice. The place was very clean. The staff members were great. It looked like there were lots of activities. I like their exercise room. The price was too high, but the location was very convenient.

We absolutely love Washington Oakes. They are just excellent and very professional. It has a dignified environment with lots of mental and physical stimulation for seniors. The food is absolutely fabulous. My mother is a very picky eater, and she hasn’t found anything she does not like. The staff is very attentive, thorough, and watch over her very carefully. I don’t have to worry about her being neglected. I told the manager the staff is on top of everything and taking good care of all of them. It’s a larger facility, but it was easy to figure out after a while. There’s low staff turnover; everybody seems very happy to work, which is a good indication that it’s a well-run establishment. The residents seemed to be very happy; I asked them personally.

Provider Response

Please be assured that we will continue to provide the best lifestyle it is within our power to provide. I am delighted to hear that your mother in enjoying our food, overall lifestyle and environment. Thanks again. Tad Kasuya, General Manager

Washington Oakes was very good. I would have to give them all good marks; I did not find anything bad whatsoever. The one- and two-bedrooms were good and of adequate size. We stayed and had a very good lunch. The lady showed us a whole month-long calendar of activities and was very accommodating. She even sent me a thank you card and a gift card for Starbucks.

We went to Washington Oakes. It seemed nice and caring. We didn’t get any further than the lobby, but the staff member was very welcoming. She was the one who suggested someone else to speak to because she saw that my mom needed too much care. They couldn’t take her there, so she suggested we speak to somebody else. She gave us that information right away.

We visited Washington Oakes for my mom. It was great; that's why we selected it. The rooms were very nice and spacious. The people were very friendly. They had very good rapport with the residents. It was just a really happy upbeat place. Everybody was happy and smiling. Everybody went out of their way to visit with my mom and make her feel welcome. It was one of the best places we saw. They have a list of probably 10 activities per day. They have a very active schedule. They have gym, library, and crafts. There were a lot of happy, upbeat, and positive people. There weren't a bunch old people staring at you; there were very young active people and that's what we needed.

I have gone to Washington Oakes. It was pretty good, but they don't offer as many outings. The food was very good. They have really given us a lot of opportunities to go back, visit, and get a feeling of the place. It would probably be second on my list of places I like. The staff was nice. They had given us opportunities to see their rooms, and it was a nice, warm, inviting environment. I went with my neighbor, we liked it, and we would consider it. It is probably our second choice because they don't seem to offer as many outings.

Washington Oakes is located in a nice residential neighborhood that is close to shopping and other amenities. The building itself is beautiful! It was originally a schoolhouse in the 1900's. Residents live in their own apartments, allowing them to decorate as they wish. The center offers many trips and outings, and well as on premises restaurant, beauty salon, arts and crafts room, game room, a relaxing lobby and many other features! The staff is wonderful; everyone from the housekeepers to management is friendly and helpful. They also offer Assisted Living services for those who need it. Their staff is available 24 hours a day to help you answer any questions. Residents are close to shopping, restaurants, and various other activities, so many keep their cars on site in the centers off street parking. For those that can't drive, there are planned outings! Washington Oakes is a wonderful place to live!

I went with my Mother to Washington Oakes. Beautiful community full of life. We met the general manager, and he was a very nice guy who wanted what was best for my mom. We didn't end up moving there because my mom needed memory care, but we would have if we could.
