My mother is a current resident. Mom has been there for two months, but I have seen a great change in her. She was, at first, apprehensive with the idea of leaving her home of almost 60 years, but that has quickly dissipated! At 85 years young, she is making new friends, and her health(mental and physical) seems to be improving. She's becoming more involved with the activities offered there! Although she couldn't take her piano when she moved, she is able to use the one located in the lobby(Common Area)! The staff genuinely cares about her, which puts my mind at ease! So far, I am pleased with Heritage Oaks, and so is she; but just wish the food was better!

I am a "Professional Partner" and every time I visit Heritage Oaks I see the happiest residents. Maybe it's because the management team is always trying to go above and beyond to provide the best service possible. They also have a lot of fun, entertaining community events that the residents really seem to enjoy!

I moved into Heritage Oaks four months ago and fell in love with the residents. I have a beautiful one bedroom apartment with a wonderful view that overlooks the beautiful trees and the lovely garden spot that the residents fill with beautiful flowers and lovely vegetables. I love the concrete walkways that surround the facility. Everything is blooming and green. The staff is the best I have every had. The care that the staff shows is unbeliveible. I feel like a family member here. The Cafeteria is the best, just like home cooking and plenty of food. A full salad bar that is always loaded. We have fresh homemade bread. I like this because it feels like the whole family gathering for meals. The Chef always comes to the table and make sure we are satisfied. Managent always has a open door conciept the help residents at anytime.

My parents have a very good experience at HO. They enjoy the activities - especially the musical events. They really love the feeling of "family" that the staff and other residents share with them. They just had the interior painted and new dining furniture...as well as new furniture in the atrium. The grounds are kept up nicely and my parents enjoy helping care for the raised gardens. Had to take one star off as the only negative is the time it takes to get meals served in the dining room. Older folks aren't always the most patient...and that would be the only pain point we have experienced!
