    04/02/2015 An Interested Visitor Writes: Oak Crest Retirement Community is fabulous. My dad went into the health center area after two months in ICU. He was very nervous about leaving the hospital. We did some research and thought Oak Crest Village would be good. Turns out it was great! My girlfriend who works with seniors said that "it is the Club Med of Retirement Centers" - she is absolutely right! The staff members are all very conscientious and caring. They frequently checked in with my dad. They worked him out regularly with OT and PT and by the time he left he was able to do pretty much everything on his own and felt confident that he was ready to go home. Now he is planning on moving back to Oak Crest Village but in their independent living section this time.

    03/26/2015 An Interested Visitor Writes: My grandparents lived here for over 7 years before my grandmother passed. They lived in the independent apartments until my grandmother became ill, then they moved to assisted living. My grandfather always says moving here was one of the best decisions they ever made.
    We have gone up to visit quite a bit over the years. When I was going to school at Towson University I was over there almost every weekend to visit. The food in the dining room is actually quite good. The pools are nice. There are LOTS of events and social groups. My grandparents really enjoyed this. The location is great and close to where they used to live. It is very clean and well kept. Never smells, even in the Alzheimer's unit. You get alot for what you pay.

    12/01/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: The apartments are very large and light. The administration at Oak Crest Village was helpful throughout the move in process and they were able to provide a list of resources for moving my father as well as managing an estate sale which helped me a lot.

    11/16/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: My parents love being at Oak Crest Village. They are always bragging about the great food and the staff at Oak Crest Village. We checked out several other Independent Living communities, and Oak Crest Village had by far the biggest apartments and cheaper than the others. My parents are happy in their new apartment.

    10/02/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: People Who Care – Oak Crest Village is a beautiful community. You need it they have it all from tennis to swimming indoor and out. But, its the people that make the difference. They have people who really care. These men and women truly have a gift to take care of our elderly. I have confidence when I leave and go home that my mother is cared for. I know she is in good hands. I am no longer the caregiver; but, now have more time to be "the daughter". You will never know what a gift Oak Crest Village has given me. Peace of mind!

    08/06/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Living at Oak Crest Village is like living a five star hotel. The resident here at much younger and in better shape than at other retirement communities that my husband and I visited in the greater Baltimore area. The staff are all very kind and friendly. In the end it was the pricing that made us choose Oak Crest Village because they were so much more reasonably priced than other communities that we visited.

    05/17/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable at Oak Crest Village when I toured there recently. The food smelled heavenly and tasted even better. Many activities to keep me busy if that is what I desire. I can go to the library or attend a craft class. Take the community bus when they go shopping or the movies. I do intend to take one of their casino trips. And I may become a regular at the Bingo games when I am not in the heated pool. They allow my small dogs which is note the case with another retirement community I was considering in Towson. I have some medical challenges and living here will be like staying in a nice hotel. All I will have to worry about is how many activities I can fit in a day. Do yourself a favor and check out a little piece of paradise here on earth.

    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.

    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.
