An Oakmont of Valencia official is talking about what will set the luxury Santa Clarita senior living community apart from other communities after its grand opening slated for this summer.
Oakmont of Valencia is expected to have 40 assisted living apartment homes, along with two memory care communities comprised of 25 apartment homes each, according to Mary Dembkowski of Oakmont.
“Each memory care community has its own dining room, its own activity areas, their own courtyards, plus, which is really nice, is we put a movie theater right in our memory care community,” Dembkowski said.
While Oakmont of Santa Clarita, its sister community that opened in 2016, has more of a focus on assisted living, Oakmont of Valencia is expected to have a heavier focus on memory care for residents living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, according to Dembkowski.
In addition, Oakmont of Valencia is located in a residential area on Copper Hill Drive, within walking distance of a grocery store, shops, paseos and more.
“It’s a little bit of a different setting,” Dembkowski said. “It’s a lovely area.”
Aside from all the five-star amenities and activities that have become a signature feature of Oakmont Senior Living communities, Dembkowski noted that giving residents and their loved ones peace of mind in knowing the senior is being well taken care of is their top priority.
“We give our residents pendants that detect falls, so if someone should slip and fall, they don’t have to worry, ‘I have to press my pendant,’ — we’ve already been notified,” she said. “So I think for the residents and the families, just having that peace of mind knowing that there are people around that have eyes on them and their wellbeing is our first consideration.”
Oakmont is a luxury senior living community in Santa Clarita. Oakmont of Santa Clarita opened on Newhall Ranch Road in 2016, and a second community, Oakmont of Valencia, is currently under construction on Copper Hill Drive, with reservations now available for its grand opening slated for the summer of 2019. Oakmont of Santa Clarita is comprised of 80 pet-friendly apartment units, with both independent and assisted living options available. Residents can enjoy five star amenities like a salon & day spa, movie theater, fitness center, restaurant-style dining, gardens and walking paths, pet park, wellness center and more. A separate wing of the community, called Traditions Memory Care, is dedicated to meeting the specialized needs of seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
