What People Are Saying About Us

Moving my Dad out of his home of 63 years was very hard. For all of us. but at 90 years old, we all knew that he needed to be somewhere safe and comfortable. We had already heard about Three Oaks from friends of ours that had previously moved in. They really liked it. My first visit there to gather information, I was introduced to Shirley. She has been wonderful with my Dad and also answering all of mine and my siblings questions. I felt very at ease calling her at any time with questions and concerns. I thank Shirley very much for making this life changing time go a little smoother .

Shirley and the entire team at Three Oaks have been incredibly helpful and accommodating as my in-laws transition from another assisted living facility to Three Oaks. I'm especially grateful for the excellent lines of communication, both phone and email. They don't hide behind their voicemail, and are willing to help out with even the smallest details, and that's meant a lot to us. The facility is kept spotlessly clean, and there's a real sense of community.

A place I highly recommend! Three Oaks is a wonderful residence for a loved one. The building is bright and shining clean, with a lovely charm and very pleasant atmosphere. A very warm and welcoming environment, which is so important in a difficult time of transition and change. Whether it is staff or fellow residents, people are supportive and positive, like an extended family. Rooms are very neat, spacious and clean, with nice amenities, good lighting, a large restroom, and ample closet space. There are plenty of activities to do as well, a small but charming library with two computers, books, and magazines, as well as a movie theater, rooms to read in, engage with others, or just relax, such as the bistro. Staff at Three Oaks is to be highly commended; whether it be CNAs, nurses, or people in the offices, the director, or staff in the kitchen, people are upbeat, hardworking, and always going the extra mile to try and address any concerns or questions a resident or family members might have. And yes, the food is truly delicious, not a common compliment when one is reading a review of an assisted living, or a nursing home. Healthy produce, with nice variety.I have nothing but praise for Three Oaks, and am happy to have found a place--after having seen a number nursing homes and assisted living residencies for both parents over the past few years--which quickly feels like a second home. Thank you!

Shirley C. was my contact at 3 Oaks. She answered all my questions, was the lead in all the paperwork to transfer my mother there and made sure every detail was correct I also reached out to an Attorney who recommended 3 Oaks. I cant describe the relief knowing that a loved one is in the right place.I want to thank everybody there especially Shirley C. for taking a major load off my mind also seeing and hearing about Moms improvement.

Staff is always attentive and very caring. They have helped my mother and father make the transition from their home of 37 years to their new home at Three Oaks. Their apartment has a very nice floor plan and I can say from experience that the meals are excellent. Lots of activities available and offsite outings as well. I am pleased with Three Oaks.

My folks moved to Three Oaks 6 months ago. Mom has Alzheimers, and Dad moved to be with Mom. Mom has been very demanding of my Dad's attention, and while living at home he rarely left the house and was isolated. Since moving to Three Oaks he has had opportunities to get out and socialize. But Mom would still like him to stay with her all of the time and can get very upset if he is not. This is where the staff has stepped in to help. If Dad is overwhelmed he can press his call button and help arrives.I have to commend one staff member in particular -- Matt, who works the evening shift. He has listened to Dad when Dad needs someone to talk to. Matt came in during a different shift and invited Dad to watch a Cubs game with him. Now the two of them are talking about forming a men's group. I can't begin to tell you how much this means to me.

I have been very satisfied with the experience at Three Oaks Assisted Living and Memory Care. My mother has Alzheimer's disease and has lived at 3 Oaks for two years. They are compassionate, kind, and always working to improve. They are always coming up with new ideas to engage residents and improve the quality of life of those who are entrusted to their care. The caregivers and administrators are respectful to residents and family members. I wholeheartedly recommend 3 Oaks Assisted Living and Memory Care.

I was amazed at Three Oaks Assisted Living. The building was beautiful and clean. We had a chance to dine with the residence and the food was outstanding and the service was so personal. I heard all the staff and nurses call every resident by name. This would be my first choice for my loved one!

My aunt has been in Memory Care at Three Oaks since August of 2013 and it has been the best experience for all of us. She was in 2 other facilities before moving to this place: one where she broke her hip and it wasn't discovered for a few months, one where she did her rehab, and here. We call the staff of caregivers "angels" because they are so loving and respectful, and that can be challenging because my aunt isn't an easy person to care for personality wise. Three Oaks AL is a blessing all around. Even my husband, who gets creeped out by nursing homes, said this place was great. He said the way it is decorated resembles an upscale hotel: clean, bright and elegant. He was very pleasantly surprised. It definitely is NOT a nursing home. I can't say enough good things about Three Oaks and it's staff.Unfortunately, this past spring we opted to move my aunt because the cost to live their increased way more than we expected. We were promised one thing upon move-in, but in the end did not receive what inspired us to to choose Three Oaks in the first place.
