Assisted Living Reviews for Oak Park Place Wauwatosa

We are very unhappy with Oak Park Place. It's a beautiful building, but they are understaffed. They promise things that they don't do, their food is absolutely horrible, and there is no way you can call that good food. They mix up my mother's medication, and she had a delivery of strawberries, they left them at the front desk for four days, and she had to get down at age 96 to get them herself. They are supposed to help her with her shower, but they barely do that, and the minute that she steps out of the shower -- and when she does need help -- off they go. She has a very nice apartment, and when she could get outside, they had nice grounds that she could take a walk. We tried working with them. She fell twice, and they did not notify anyone in the family. The grounds are well-kept. They always have singing and get-togethers about once a week. They had a gentleman play the organ, and that was very nice.

Oak Park Place was my father’s first choice. We went there and agreed as it seems like a nice, clean facility. The people working there are top notch. So far, the work ethics look very good. They have been in contact with me two or three times a week to let me know what’s going. The room is basically an older size bedroom, and the bathroom is a good size bathroom with a shower. I ate there once, it was good, and I keep asking my folks who also say the food is good. They do all kinds of things in memory care. They take you outside, they have movies and TV, and they have a lot of movies that they play. The staff plays with the residents, and they do field trips and take them for rides. The memory care unit is all alarmed. If the alarm goes off, they’re right on it. My dad is a wanderer; he went downstairs a couple of times looking for his car which he doesn’t have anymore, and they were right on it.

I visited this facility

Oak Park Place was\is impressive. It's in a very nice neighborhood that I'm familiar with. We dropped in unexpectedly, however, there was someone at the desk, and she gave us a wonderful tour. It was late in the morning, and there was really nothing going on back then. There were no residents around. The only staff we saw were in the kitchen preparing food. The food smelled good, but we did not taste anything. They had very nice dining areas, and each floor had its own. They're rooms had nice sizes; not overly large, and very comfortable. If we were to do this, we would be interested in a 2 bedroom place. One of the 2 bedrooms was of the small size, but the other was nice and spacious. It had a kitchenette and a bathroom. If I remembered correctly, they also have a walk-in shower.

My mom spent the last four months of her life at Oak Park Place in Wauwatosa and the experience was amazing! I highly recommend them without reservation - beautiful facilities, A1 food service, plentiful activities, and above all the caregivers without exception are absolutely wonderful. As for cost, check around and I think you'll find them to be very competitive.

Oak Park Place is a very nice place, but it's also the question of money. It's incredibly expensive. I know other people who have put some parents in there. Nice grounds. Everything is beautifully taken care of. I really didn't get to talk to the staff. That's a huge factor. You want to know the staff and who's taking care of your mom.

I liked Oak Park very much. I was very encouraged with this facility and this is the one I really wanted her to go to. The rooms were beautiful. I would recommend them to others.

My mom stayed at Oak Park Place Wauwatosa Assisted Living. I liked that they assisted the residents like when she fell, they actually assisted her to get up. She had a small apartment but it was spacious enough for her. She played bingo and cards with the other residents. She loved the food that was served there. It was very clean and it was a nice place. I especially liked the level of care that they provided my mom. I would recommend this place to other people.

The Oak Park Place is the best place for my mother and she's happier there. The place is bright and sunny, and it's brand new. She's very comfortable and has not cried since she moved in there. The staff is really good with her. The meals they prepare for her are very good.
