About three years after Oakmont of Santa Clarita opened its doors, Oakmont Senior Living officials announced a second community will be coming to Valencia with an added focus on memory care.
“The most exciting news going into the new year is that Oakmont of Valencia is coming to town,” said Margie Veis, the executive director of Oakmont of Santa Clarita.”We’re going to do it all over again and build a beautiful new Oakmont community.”
The new community, located on Copper Hill Drive just before Tesoro near Rio Norte Junior High School, is expected to be a reverse “footprint” from Oakmont of Santa Clarita, as it will be heavier in memory care space and lighter on assisted and independent living.

“We’re finding that that really is the need in our community,” Veis said. “It’s really heartbreaking sometimes to have a family come in in crisis and we can’t help them because we don’t have availability and we have a waitlist. So this is really going to help… We’re going to have enough hopefully so that people aren’t turned away.”
Loosely scheduled to open around summer of 2019, Oakmont of Valencia’s next step is to have an informational trailer at the site where the public can visit and take part in informational luncheons, according to Veis, who is set to transition to the new community.
“Some of the team is going to stay together, some are going to stay at Santa Clarita and keep that amazing community what we built it to be,” said Veis.
She continued, “We’ve been talking about it for such a long time, the fact that it’s truly happening is really exciting.”
