A Thank You Note from Jim and Jill – Oakmont Manor

At each of our Oakmont communities, we are lucky enough to receive frequent cards, letters, and notes of thanks from our residents and their families. These simple gestures mean the absolute world to us, and we are grateful to each and every author who takes the time to share their feedback.

We received the below letter from Jim and Jill whose mother lives at Oakmont Manor for eight years. We are so grateful that their family became part of our Oakmont family, moving their Mom to Oakmont Parkway when she needed additional services. We are proud to share their words with you below:

Note: We have altered the letter slightly to protect the privacy of the authors.

Dear Oakmont Manor Team, 

My family and I would like to personally thank you for the eight years our mother lived at Oakmont Manor. Every detail at Manor was attended to on a regular basis. The facility was always clean, fresh, and in excellent repair. When anything was brought to the maintenance department’s attention, it was taken care of quickly.  

The activities always had something for everyone. Our mom did not always attend the activities but when she did it was never disappointing.

Oakmont Parkway Donates and Delivers Lunch to the St. Clair Shores Senior Activity Center

The State of Michigan is home to more than 100 senior centers, and with almost a quarter of the State’s population now over the age of 60, the essential services they provide to our communities cannot be overstated.

Today, our staff at Oakmont Parkway had an opportunity to support one of our community partners: the St. Clair Shores Senior Activity Center. Because of some mechanical issues in their kitchen, the Senior Center’s staff wasn’t able to prepare lunch for a planned group of visitors and reached out to their community partners for help. We couldn’t have been more thrilled to step in.

Our culinary staff prepared fantastic boxed lunches for the occasion that included individually wrapped sandwiches, homemade pasta salad, chips, dessert, and bottles of water, and members of our corporate staff delivered the lunches today just before lunchtime. The staff and visitors enjoyed the boxed lunches and couldn’t have been happier.

The St. Clair Shores Senior Activity Center provides some of the area’s most innovative and popular senior programming and many of our residents from Oakmont Parkway frequently take part. We couldn’t have been more grateful for the opportunity to assist one of our best community partners and help in their time of need.

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.
