Residents at Mountain Park enjoyed learning how to make mosaic 🌱planter pots. Residents safely cut glass, designed their mosaic and used grout to give the pots the mosaic effect! The mosaic planter pots will be used as welcoming gifts for new residents 🥰


Throughout September, Memory Care residents have traveled (virtually) to orchards to welcome the fall season. They have been learning about fall foliage, fruits and vegetables. One afternoon, residents repurposed wine corks and shaped them into pumpkins🎃

Memory Care residents are learning and exploring US artists and their masterpieces in September. This week, residents learned about Andy Warhol and how his Campbell Soup Can was so revolutionary in the art world in the 1960s. Residents recreated with their own Campbell Soup Can masterpiece.

Welcome to the Parasols on Parade ☂️✨ fashion show for the Alzheimer’s Association! 💜

Eighteen incredible residents gracefully strolled down the purple runway, each carrying hand-painted artbrellas, which were given away in exchange for your generous donations. 🎨☂️ The ...Oaks at Algonquin raised an astounding $3,193 to support the Walk to End Alzheimer’s campaign! 🚶‍♂️🚶‍♀️


✨Introducing our Geological Abstract Canvas series🎨✨

Residents created their art pieces by using a foam plate as a substrate and then adding golden fluid acrylics in drops.
They chose three colors for each canvas, adding a mist of water and lightly pushing the paint around to ...cover the center of the canvas. The final step was to add more water and heat to dry to create cell patterns.

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.

I can't say enough about the staff at 3 Oaks. It truly is a blessing to know mom is not only safe, but truly cared for. We tried keeping her home, but I am so glad that did not work because, even through her Alzheimer, her life is more rich there, from activities to care, I do appreciate them all. Thank you Amanda for helping us navigate this quagmire of a health care system and helping mom. I would recommend 3 Oaks to anyone finding themselves in the need for a loved one.

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!
