PRESS RELEASE: Oakmont Senior Communities refocuses on independent and enhanced living with sale of licensed care communities to partner Pomeroy Living

In response to changing market and industry conditions surrounding licensed care, Oakmont Senior Communities has sold its interest in both Oakmont Rochester Assisted and Oakmont Sterling Assisted, the company’s only care-oriented facilities, to Pomeroy Living – a silent partner and joint-owner of the communities. Also included in the sale was Oakmont Rochester Independent.

Pomeroy Living, who also operates Boulevard Health Center on the campus of the Oakmont Rochester Communities and is a silent partner in all three properties involved in the transaction, was a natural fit for the sale.

 “When the opportunity was presented for Pomeroy to purchase these communities outright from Oakmont and take over the day-to-day management duties, everything fell into place,” said Armen Kalaydjian, Oakmont’s owner. “The care communities will continue to operate at the highest level thanks to Pomeroy’s track record of success in licensed buildings, and Oakmont Senior Communities can refocus on what we do best: serve Metro-Detroit seniors with exceptional independent and enhanced living communities.”

The transfer of ownership has taken effect as of January 1st, 2019.

As the sole owners and operators of Oakmont’s Northville, Livonia, Manor, Parkway, and Sterling communities, Oakmont Senior Communities will continue to be a large presence in the senior living market place and build on its reputation of industry leading innovation for Michigan’s seniors.

Oakmont Sterling Raises $1,700 for Two Area Families in Need

Inspired the wonderful generosity of the holiday spirit, the residents and staff of Oakmont Sterling Enhanced came together to raise money for two local families in need. With a total of $1,700 in money and other donations, the residents were able to purchase and wrap gifts for the two families which were given away in a small ceremony at the community.

The first family are members of Our Lady of Czestochowa and received gift cards to various stores including a $300 gift card to Kroger. The second family, members of the Freedom Christian Church in Sterling Heights, have two kids and received gifts wrapped in beautiful holiday wrapping paper. Both families were identified and selected by their places of worship.

Oakmont Sterling as well as the other Oakmont communities participate in fundraising and giving campaigns throughout as part of the company-wide Oakmont Cares effort. Check back on this blog for more information on upcoming charitable efforts and events.

Oakmont Senior Communities Donates $12,000 to Deputy David Hack

On Wednesday, December 12th, members of Oakmont Senior Communities’ Ownership and Management joined the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Rochester Hills Substation to present Deputy David Hack with a check for $12,000.

The funds were raised as part of a year-long Oakmont Cares charitable effort by the more than 1,000 seniors and staff members of Oakmont Senior Communities.

To commemorate the special event, the check was presented to Deputy Hack by Michael Baran – a 30-year veteran of the Dearborn and Taylor Police Departments and the United States Army. Mr. Baran traveled from his home at Oakmont Sterling to be part of the festivities, declaring “I would do anything for a fellow police officer.”

 

 

Inspired by Deputy Hack’s service to the community and news of his recovery, each Oakmont Community held fundraisers, events, and donation drives throughout the year to help raise the funds to donate toward his ongoing recovery.

Special thanks go out to all of the seniors and staff members who donated to the charitable effort, and to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance in helping to facilitate the presentation. Oakmont Senior Communities wishes Deputy Hack a continued recovery, and we hope to see him back in uniform soon.

New Study: Living in senior housing communities leads to lower level of hospitalization

A new study from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis has found that living in a senior community can lead to lower levels of hospitalization for vulnerable seniors – including those with chronic health conditions.

Utilizing data from a decade-long study (2002-2012), the study concludes that the services offered by many senior communities, such as health education, encourage seniors to seek treatment sooner for pressing issues – leading to fewer trips to the hospital.
