A nice place to tour

We liked this community. We were happy with the staff who answered are questions. We would recommend other families to see the activities and the menu for a loved one to move into this clean community.

My dad was well taken care of.

They are a very caring staff. The value is good. My dad was very well taken care of, especially after the new director took over. They have made a lot of improvements. The nursing staff is top-notch. My dad was in memory care. I always felt like they kept a good eye on my dad. They helped me with the hospice process. He was so loved there. I am an only child, A Place for Mom, really helped me with the whole process.

I've been repressed in visiting my wife of 62 years since mid-March 2020 primarily due to restrictions imposed by COVID-19. For over a year and a half before the onset of COVID-19, I visited my bride for about two hours daily during meals in the Memory Care dining room. During Saturday dinners we SKYPED our son in Japan. During these daily visits I had the opportunity to observe the staff in the performance of their duties. Without exception, all were caring, most compassionate and professional in all respects. At no time did I observe a staff member exhibit frustration annoyance.. The meals, many of which I too partook were balanced in verity, quality and quantity. Considering the circumstances, for my taste, they were oftentimes somewhat bland. The staff responsible for varying activities were exceptionally dedicated individuals. They arranged for frequent outside 'professional' entertainers; piano players, singers, visiting pet sessions, skits, et al. They also provided daily in house activities; bingo, sing-a-longs, projects, games and field trips. I believe the overall staff turnover rate is above the norm. However, there is a dedicated CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) staff core that have been with Bright Oaks since day one. Bright Oaks should consider employing an OMBUDSMAN to periodically communicate the status of the residents to their loved ones, especially during this COVID-19 Pandemic. Currently, from my personal experience, I am only contacted when there is a need for my loved one. Occasionally, on my request, I do receive an E-mail photo of my wife, but not always. Would I recommend another to entrust their loved one into the care of Bright Oaks of Aurora. Absolutely, without reservation. They administer GREAT care, but not PERFECT

Brand new facility

When I first started looking at communities, I called A Place for Mom and Kitty has been wonderful in assisting me. She referred us here and we fell in love with this community. The facility is brand new and just opened up in June. It’s a very nice facility and seems more upscale than other places. All of the staff members are friendly and welcoming. The administrator who has been helping us since the beginning is so nice and checks in with us when we visit. It’s a beautiful facility and I would recommend it.

My mother's Choice

I am very happy with the care that my mom is getting at this beautiful community. The staff is nice and very helpful. This is a new community and not a lot of other residents right now. My mom does like the care here. The meals are outstanding. They do offer her to participate in activities. The community is clean and we would recommend other families to see this community for the great care and value for a loved one.
