I Visited This Facility

I have a relative who lives in Sheldon Oaks. The lady at the desk suggested I go in and have lunch so that I could visit after their manager was back. Their salads and other entrees looked good, and you have a choice of three things. It was a nice and pet-friendly place. They have apartments on the ground floor with an outside door, which is great because I have a little dog. Plus, the price is the best one in the area. They have activities. For example, they have foot care, I saw them play a game where they throw a ball, and I saw their exercise class in one of the little rooms there, and I thought it was excellent. The only disadvantage I see personally is their rigid meal schedule. But that happens to be how the place operates, and they do a good job of it. Some of the apartments don't have kitchens, and the residents who are getting three meals a day have kitchens.

We chose Sheldon Oaks because the particular apartment that I have is bigger than most of the ones I saw, and it's in an area where I can walk and have access to Safeway, the drugstore, the beauty shop and McDonald's. I lived in this community before so I know where everything is and I like that. It's only been two days but it's been good so far. The staff is great. Everything is good. It looks like there's plenty to do. They have exercise and bus trips to the store, festivals, and today they're going to a farm to pick pumpkins. They have bingo, poker, music that comes in and plays before lunch, and three meals a day. They have a bus, and from here, it's not a very long walk to get to the bus stop for public transportation.

Sheldon Oaks was beautiful and my mother's favorite place. They were creative and had dancing, pinochle, and exercise classes. The best thing about that place is it was close. The people could walk to the bank and a nearby grocery store. They showed us the laundry room, where you could do your own laundry. They had vans that would take you anywhere you wanted to go at anytime. The staff was very accommodating. The food wasn't that great, though.

It's more like a home here at Sheldon Oaks. The only thing I would correct in this place is they should have the food served all day long. We have three feedings and an hour and a half to get down there, get our food, and get back. But other than that, it's homey, they take care of problems, they treat me really well, everybody is really friendly, and I enjoy it here. The managers are always there to take care of you and help you. It's very comforting.

I thought Sheldon Oaks was beautiful, but they did not take Medicaid, which was why I did not end up there. The staff that toured me around was wonderful, very thorough, and nice. They did not rush us. I had lunch there, and it was a wonderful experience. The food was excellent and served and presented nicely.

Sheldon Oaks was really nice, but as my wife put it, she said that it felt like we were in a production. Everything was so organized and laid out that it didn’t feel very relaxing. It was a very beautiful facility, but all they could offer me was a studio. They had an exercise room, pool table, and walking area, and showed me some scheduling of different activities that the people could do. They had a beautiful facility and good food. They not only provided food, but inbetween meals, they had a lot of snacks and juices always available for the residents. The community was very clean and very neat, but it just didn’t feel very relaxing. It felt like everything was too organized.
