"You had me at muscle cars."

Our residents attended the classic car show in Cary. Cary Cruise Night takes place in downtown Cary, and this week's theme was muscle cars.

We would like to introduce our most cherished resident, #MyrtletheTurtle. A 3-toed box turtle, Myrtle found her way to our community and into our hearts. She’s bringing so much joy to our #MemoryCare neighborhood. This series will highlight the love and connection between animals and humans. We ...are excited to show you how Myrtle the Turtle is enriching the lives of our incredible residents.

Without further ado, Myrtle the Turtle: The Series🐢

Cycling Without Age McHenry County is a non-profit organization that provides bicycle rides (on a trishaw) to older adults. A trishaw is a three-wheeled non-motorized vehicle designed to carry one or two passengers in front. It is pedaled like a bicycle by a “pilot” sitting behind and slightly ...above the passengers.

Our residents thoroughly enjoy these 15 - 20 minute rides twice a month through the surrounding neighborhoods of Three Oaks. One of the residents said, "I never thought, when I moved here, I'd be taking bike rides again. It's just wonderful!"

For a woman whose life has been fueled by her adventurous spirit, being able to check off all 50 states from her travel list is a great accomplishment. Pat is a woman who moved quite frequently due to the nature of her husband’s job. Pat and her husband have visited every state except for one, ...Alaska.

Pat has a great passion for traveling as well as painting. So, it came as no surprise when Pat said her @wishofalifetime was to travel to Alaska to take a painting class.

Thank you @wishofalifetime, for helping Pat and her daughter get to Alaska. They both attended an outdoor painting class and enjoyed every second of it!

We got a special visit from the Scales & Tales Traveling Zoo! Three Oaks residents looked forward to this event all month! We voted on which animals would visit, and Beth from "Scales & Tails" did not disappoint. Everyone was able to hold or pet every animal, big or small. From ...2-day-old baby chicks to Xena the Sloth and Buo the Barn Owl, the animals had just as much fun posing for the pictures as we did!

My mother has been a resident of Three Oaks for several months. Care has been cheerfully and professionally provided, she likes the food , and the activities offered are always varied (the entertainment manager is always in touch with residents to see what could be added for their benefit).When we were helping my mother find an assisted living home, the care and attention to needs of residents was first on the list of priorities, but a beautiful environment was next. At Three Oaks, we found both.We also appreciate the transparency that has been offered from the beginning, regarding care and how the organization is run. This has built trust, and that is priceless.It is a wonderful feeling to know your loved one is being cared for with skill, professionalism, and with caring.

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 .

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!
