12/05/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: After our grandfather was settled in, we visited the community for a more in-depth tour. Starting with lunch in the dining room, we found the service to be outstanding, especially for guests of the residents. The food was well prepared and had a good variety - one worries that repeated meals may become tiresome for the residents.The grounds of the community are beautiful. My grandfather chose a beautiful 2 bedroom apartment that perfectly met his needs. While touring the community, we noticed many activities available to the residents - trips, clubs, meetings, worship. My grandfather - not social by nature - has been devouring books in the library and completing projects with other like minded residents in the wood shop. I hope that the staff is reaching out to include him in activities he may not sign up for on his own.The residents of the community seemed to be very friendly, but they did keep a close eye on the young ones in our party. Grandpa tells us that there are cliques formed along lines of interest among the residents - not surprising, but a new experience for someone who lived on his own with family for the last 39 years.There are medical rooms available, for stages in life where independent living isn't an option - this is a place where my grandfather will live out the rest of his days in comfort.

    10/14/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: I visited a lot of retirement communities before I came to Oak Crest Village. I cannot explain what is was, but there was something about the look and feel of this community — I knew this was the choice for me and I continue to be pleased with my choice.

    02/08/2013 An Current/Past Resident Writes: I am a current resident at Oak Crest Village and I am not surprised what the previous person said about Edenwald. I had the same experience and I know someone who sat on the Board at Edenwald years ago and she ended up not moving to Edenwald but to Broadmead! That sumed it up for me.

    02/01/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My parents were residents of Oakcrest Retirement community for several years before my parents passed away. We searched, together, all over the area for a place they could call home and this community fit the bill. From the time they moved in, they were welcomed and treated wonderfully by both their fellow residents and the friendly caring staff as well. Many lifelong friends were made and I have the utmost regard for the integrity and quality of care they received while living there. We also looked at Blakehurst in Towson which was nice but a little too pricy and Edenwald which is also in Towson. We had a bad experience at Edenwald. I sincerely hope that you truly value your money because...Edenwald Retirement Community truly values it, too!!! In fact, when you go to inquire about your loved one moving there, they want to know all about your assets (BEFORE your loved one even steps a foot in the place for their first tour) and that, you should be able to easily cough up hundreds of thousands of dollars up front! On top of that, if you don't give them an immediate answer as to whether your loved one will move there or not, they hurriedly get you off of the phone and tell you if you love your family member you should pay for them! Such an attitude from that place.

    08/24/2010 An OurParents User Writes: My mother was a resident of the care center at Oak Crest Village for the last 7 months of her life. She had progressive dementia as well as mobility issues. Overall my family and I were very pleased with the care she received. The nurse practitioner and social worker communicated with us regularly. The nursing staff and GNAs that cared for my mother treated her with kindness, care and respect. No one wants to see their loved one in a nursing home, and no nursing home is going to care for your parent the way that you would. But I felt that my mother received quality care during a very sad and difficult time, and was grateful that she was able to be in a facility like this one.

    08/08/2009 An OurParents User Writes: The facilities and options are astonishing. The large population of this community means they can offer amenities and features that wouldn't be possible in a smaller facility. There are at least a half-dozen dining options from buffet to cafeteria to fine dining to bistro and more. There are hundreds of clubs, activities, local and long-distance hosted travel opportunities and more. The facilities include woodworking and carpentry shops, a computer lab, a pottery kiln, fully-equipped excercise centers, swimming pool with water aerobics, several auditoriums, banquet facilities, in-house television station, an interdenominational chapel, libraries, banks, beauty shops and many continuing education classes. The well-maintained apartments provide a gracious living environment with state-of-the-art appliances and amenities. On-site healthcare services are comprehensive and readily available. The large staff is well-trained and accessible. I don't know of any other facility in the greater Baltimore/Washington area that offers anything better than what is found at Oak Crest Village.
