How We're Addressing COVID

Since the beginning of this pandemic, we have made our residents’, families’ and staffs’ health and safety our top priority. While independent living facilities are not required to adhere to the same guidelines that assisted living and skilled nursing must follow, here are some of the  ongoing measures we’ve instated to prevent COVID cases at The Oaks:

  • Screening ALL visitors for signs and symptoms and taking temperatures
  • Limiting unessential vendors
  • Hand sanitizer located throughout the commons area
  • Socially-distanced seating in our formal  diningroom
  • Masks are required at ALL TIMES by staff and residents in the common areas
  • Requiring that all new residents complete a 14-day quarantine before using the common areas
  • All family members are required to stay in the resident’s apartment or have a socially-distanced visit outside of the facility.

Consider The Oaks for your next stage of life

The Oaks is an independent retirement community located on the beautiful  Menorah Park Campus. We have one-bedroom, one-bedroom with den, and two-bedroom apartments – some are even available a la carte.  Residents at The Oaks are active seniors that enjoy the convenience of having services like meals and housekeeping available to them.

All new residents are invited to meet with one of our campus nurses prior to admission to have a pre-admission discussion outlining basic health issues. The purpose of this discussion is to give us appropriate information that we can pass along in the event of a health-related emergency as well as to confirm that our new resident is safely able to maintain an independent lifestyle.
