Oak Cottage has exceeded my expectations. I moved my Mother about 6 months ago and the transition went very smoothly. I was so worried moving my Mother from her home to full time care. The staff was great from the first moment we arrived. My Mom is thriving with the environment and I know she is receiving the care she needs. The staff is excellent and very helpful. I feel so blessed to have found Oak Cottage Memory care.

The caring staff at Oak Cottage has gone above and beyond in their care of my mother. She has been a resident for 6 months. I am especially impressed with the manner in which management and staff have conducted themselves through the ever changing Covid crisis. They were caring and flexible and have offered many updates and support to families via weekly Zoom meetings. The Executive Director has made herself available for questions and support. Oak Cottage is a top notch memory care facility.

The staff and administrators of Oak Cottage are miracle workers in my opinion. They have cared for and successfully connected with a very challenging client of mine for several years. She came to trust the staff and always raves about the food. I have complete confidence in their skills and abilities and trust my client is in great care. The facility is beautiful, too. Highly recommend.

Oak Cottage has been a true blessing. In late 2019, I had to make the difficult decision to place my husband, diagnosed with Alzheimers disease, in residential care. If you are in such a situation, I know its an incredibly vulnerable place to be. You are placing your trust in people that you only pray will not let you down. Oak Cottage will not let you or your loved one down. My husband is cared for and more than anything, he is happy and secure. In the worst of situations, I know that speak for a community of families, we are all so grateful. And particularly in the nightmare of COVID in 2020. You can be confident that Andrea Katz and her team at Oak Cottage are the right choice for memory care.

As our moms memory deteriorated, and her needs increased, we (her 4 living children) made the decision to move her up to Oak Cottage in S.B., where two of us live. From the very start, we felt relief, as OC helped with the move and got her room ready in such a way to make a smooth transition. Our mom has now been at OC for almost 4 months, and she seems quite content. As a creative person in her heyday, our mom loves dance, music and art, and OC has all kinds of activities for her. They even have encouraged her love of teaching movement classes to the other residents. Moving a person with dementia during a pandemic is quite a task, yet OC has found ways to maintain interactions for our mom so she doesnt get isolated or more confused. At the end of the day, we children have to answer two questions: is our mom safe, and is she contented? We think the answer is Yes to both.

Oak Cottage was the perfect solution for our family as my fathers mental faculties began declining about two years ago. From the beginning, it was clear what services would be provided, and the staff was always very diligent in scheduling periodic phone updates, as well as off-schedule updates as needed. I always felt like I knew that was happening, even though I was several hundred miles away. During the early COVID outbreak and throughout, the staff went to great lengths to safeguard those in their care, and their communication was top notch during a time of crisis. It gave me great comfort to know my loved one was looked after by a caring and competent group of people. I cannot say enough about the character of everyone that works at Oak Cottage. This work is truly their calling. Sadly, my father passed a few weeks ago, and they were wonderful in guiding me with end-of-life arrangements. I highly recommend Oak Cottage for anyone looking for dignified and responsible care for their aging loved one.

This is a wonderful place for your loved one! Small, intimate, hands on management and wonderful staff! During COVID they cared for my Mom like she was their own family! Also excellent communications with families even during COVID with frequent Zoom meetings. I highly recommend Oak Cottage if you are looking for a place for your loved one in need of further care! Thank you to administration and staff at Oak Cottage!

The thought of sending my wife away due to her illness was devastating for me. How could I put her into the hands of strangers? As it turned out, she was not in the hands of strangers; she was in the hands of an extended family that cared for her as if theyd known her all of her life. The outstanding attention she has consistently received from attendants who not only care for her but also care about her over the past nine months allayed my fears and those of our daughters very quickly. Her disease progresses, of course, but the Oak Cottage staff keeps pace anticipating her needs. They may be overwhelmed by the pandemic for obvious reasons [arent we all] but they continue, time after time, to overcome any potential impediments that may arise.

Every Inch of Oak Cottage is designed to welcome, stimulate and support residents with Dementia and their families. The staff are trained and compassionate. I wish that when my mother was going through her downward spiral in dementia Oak Cottage was an option. The care provided by Oak Cottage is from relatively early stages of Dementia all the way through to the end stage. There will be no need to move your loved one to a new home when their dementia progresses. Programs are deigned at every cognitive level to stimulate and engage the residents so they can enjoy full lives in this community. I highly recommend Oak Cottage. Thank Heavens for you all!

The best part of having my parents live at Oak Cottage of SB is how caring and compassionate every employee is. They understand dementia, as all residence have memory problems. The food is good, activities are engaging and employees take residents on outings. Highly recommend Oak Cottage for care.

I have been a professional in the senior care industry since 2004. I have known the current Executive Director of Oak Cottage, Andrea Katz, for over 14 years. Andreas level of her combined talent consists of strong leadership skills, supportive managment style and most of all passion. She is incredibly creative and her hospitality background really brings the white glove approach and is a huge blessing for the Oak Cottage Community. After over 14 years in the industry I can tell you that if you want to understand what makes a senior living community great look at the staff. If they are happy, upbeat and have compassion then you know that is the effect of great leadership. The team at Oak Cottage is always happy and kind. Well done, Andrea!

My mother has been at Oak Cottage for over a year. I love the homey atmosphere. There are animals and lots of activities. My mom can walk out of her house and there is her community. The staff genuinely cares about the residents. I went and visited a lot of places for my mother and this has been a great fit for her.. She is much calmer since she has been here. She tells me often that she likes where she lives and appreciates her friends. I can sleep at night knowing my mom is being cared for at a time in her life when she needs it. I am grateful to the Oak Cottage staff for being there for my mother.

I have visited Oak Cottages on two occasions, very impressed as to the location just a few short blocks to Cottage Hospital. Located close in to local businesses and residential as well. Has a charming appeal such as visiting extended family. Rooms are decorated beautifully and the community rooms are warm and inviting. I have recommended to friends and Doctors in my local community of San Luis Obispo
