As our parents age, and as we ourselves age, we begin to look around for ways to live independently while receiving necessary care and assistance. One option is opening in Upland, where seniors live in a resort community that provides a rich tapestry of experience, as well as medical care and living assistance. This is a far cry from the “homes” where we used to send those who could no longer care for themselves.

Oakmont Senior Living, a California-based developer of resort senior communities, is bringing a new luxury retirement community to Upland. This project, which is currently under construction in Upland Community, will provide in-demand care services to the expanding senior population.

Oakmont recently broke ground on a 3.28-acre site in Upland that will become a 75,000-square-foot luxury retirement community offering assisted living and memory care services.

Construction on Oakmont of San Antonio Heights began in November of 2013 and is expected to be completed this summer. The two-story community will help fill the need for more regional senior housing and provide more senior living and care services options to the more than 480,000 inland residents 65 years or older. (2012 U.S. Census survey).

Family owned and operated, Oakmont is dedicated to creating high-quality communities that enhance the world of retirement living. With a focus on customer service and attention to detail, Oakmont leads the senior housing industry in providing innovative programs and services that enrich resident experiences and offer peace of mind for families.

Oakmont of San Antonio Heights, located on the corner of Euclid Avenue and 24th Street, is just minutes from San Antonio Community Hospital and the Colonies Crossroads shopping center.

Hosting 56 assisted living and 24 memory care apartments with studio, one- and two-bedroom floor options, the retirement oasis will offer a combination of resort amenities and custom care services that promote continued wellness and independence. Amenities will include gourmet dining; daily on- and off-site recreational and social activities. The community will hava a library; a movie theater; a fully equipped fitness center with instructional exercise classes; activity rooms with scheduled social events, games, and arts and crafts; a salon and day spa; a resident flower and vegetable garden; walking paths and a pet park.

Residents will also have access to full-time assisted living services provided by a compassionate and caring staff in the privacy of their own homes. Care options are customized to the needs of each resident and can include medication management, housekeeping, health monitoring and assessments, grooming assistance, dietary guidance, escort services to offsite appointments and activities, appointment coordination and temporary in-home care.

For diabetic residents, the community offers a Diabetes Wellness Program that monitors and manages glucose levels with customized meals, exercise activities, glucometer readings and daily evaluations. A fully-equipped wellness center and Concierge Medicine Program also allow outside physicians to visit participating residents onsite.

Oakmont of San Antonio Heights will also specialize in memory care and cater to individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, including early memory loss.
