My mom is in Oak Park. The staff seems to be good. They are very helpful to my mom. She is in a one-bedroom room, and it is fine. It is probably 600 or 500 square feet. They are actually known for their dining facility. They have pretty good food from what I am hearing. So, far our experience has been very good. We don’t have any complaints at this point. They do activities. They took them to the safari one day, and they go out for lunch. They have exercise programs and different programs, but she hasn’t been too involved yet.

My 89 year-old mom has been in Oak Park now for two years. She didn’t want to go because she had been living independently on my brother’s ranch. He didn’t want to be responsible for her any more, so we chose Oak Park. The staff have been great at getting her settled and integrated. And they have been really good about checking on mom, and responding quickly when we call with any concerns. All the residents complain somewhat about the food, which in my experience of sharing meals with mom, has been pretty good, but not great. I think they must have difficulty getting and retaining good cooks. For people living in these circumstances, good food can be the high point of the day.
We liked Oak Park by Bonaventure because there were a lot of people moving around and talking to each other. They were out there, not inside their rooms. The rooms were clean, but a little dated. There wasn’t a lot of nature and walking areas outside. It was in the middle of a lot of business establishments.
