The community is invited to the luxury Santa Clarita senior living community Oakmont of Valencia this weekend for an open house event.
Scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 8, the event is expected to include tours of the brand new community, which had its grand opening over the summer, and light hor d’oeuvres.
“We would love for people who haven’t seen Oakmont, who are maybe just curious, would like to see the community, to stop in that day,” said Mary Dembkowski of Oakmont of Valencia. “We’ll show you around the community, (and you) get to sample some of Oakmont’s delicious cuisine.”
Adult children who might have concerns about their parents living alone and seniors contemplating what they would like their future to look like are encouraged to attend the Open House, according to Dembkowski.
“Even if you’re not ready, … it’s always nice to have visited places, to know, ‘Okay, this is where I want to live,’ or, ‘This is where I would love to see my parents,’” Dembkowski said, adding that it can be less stressful in an urgent situation if there is already a plan in place for the future.
Additionally, seniors who no longer want to maintain their home in favor of enjoying “luxury-style” living can also see everything Oakmont of Valencia has to offer at the event.
“Maybe you’re just looking to live in a place where there’s lots of activities, we have our own movie theater, of course we cook for you,” Dembkowski said, “so that you can really enjoy your golden years in this beautiful community.”
