Keep Up with Oakmont

As a Michigan-based, family-owned company, Oakmont takes an active role in our communities as well as supporting local causes and various charitable organizations.

COVID-19 Update: Increased Lockdown Starting Monday, March 30th

To Our Residents and Families:

Over the next two or three weeks, health experts are predicting that the COVID-19 outbreak in Michigan will hit its apex with hundreds of new cases emerging every day. Following the lead of many leading senior organizations and the best practices recommended by local health departments and the CDC, Oakmont is placing all of our communities under increased lockdown to best protect our residents and staff.

Starting Monday, our staff will begin delivering all meals directly to each apartment and we are asking residents to quarantine and practice the CDC’s personal safety protocols we previously distributed. We also are postponing all group activities and our Activities Department will assist in helping our housekeeping and dietary staff. Also starting early this week, all Oakmont staff will begin wearing safety glasses as an additional preventative measure to help protect against the virus’ spread.

As this is an evolving situation, we will continue to keep all residents and family members updated as more information becomes available. We are committed to doing everything we can to keep our community safe for all and we are grateful for the help and well-wishes from our extended Oakmont family.

Executive Order 2020-21 – Oakmont Communities Will Remain Staffed and Operational

March 23rd, 2020

To Our Residents and Families:

Earlier this morning, Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-21 “Stay Home, Stay Safe” to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. This order has closed all non-essential businesses and forced much of the state’s workforce to stay home.

Because Oakmont employees have the unique privilege of serving seniors each and every day, we are considered exempt from this order. We want to assure you that business will continue as usual and our communities will remain in full operation while locked down.

Should any additional questions arise in the coming days, please reach out to your Executive Director for clarification.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this difficult time. The safety and security of our seniors remain our top priority.

Thank you,

Oakmont Senior Communities
