At Oakmont of Valencia, residents from the Santa Clarita senior living community are provided with an “elevated lifestyle” on a daily basis.
Though some might picture seniors taking naps all day and being served “hospital food” as meals, Abbigaile Urioste from Oakmont of Valencia noted that this is not the reality at Oakmont.
“(This is) my first job in senior living and I am so blown away,” Urioste said. “It really is elevated lifestyle and trying to provide the same lifestyle that our residents had lived throughout their lives.”
At Oakmont of Valencia, residents can enjoy a number of excursions and activities planned for them regularly, in addition to a wide range of five-star luxury amenities on-site, including a movie theater, restaurant-style dining and more.
Additionally, two “neighborhoods” in the community known as Traditions Memory Care are designed specifically for residents living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
“Everything we do in general is very intentional,” Urioste said, “but with memory care specifically, everything from their whole daily schedule to what activities they’re doing at different parts of the day to really stimulate and, like I said, create that high quality of life and continue to create experiences that they can enjoy and that are meaningful, even if it’s just in that moment.”
