Oakmont Brings SHIPT Grocery Delivery to Our Residents and Their Families

As one of the most popular on-demand grocery delivery services in the United States, SHIPT brings millions of Americans grocery and living essentials from their favorite stores each week. Empowering their customers to use computers and handheld smart devices to shop stores like Meijer and Target 24 hours a day/365 days a year, SHIPT and programs like it are perfect for those who might lack the time, transportation, or opportunity to make it to the store but still want to be able to pick out exactly the items they want to stock in the kitchen or pantry.

It is this ease of use and convenient around-the-clock availability that inspired Oakmont to introduce the SHIPT program at our communities. We knew that regardless of how familiar a resident may be with today’s technology, our dedicated activities staff and available computers and Wi-Fi could get them up and running in no time – bringing every interested resident a wealth of shopping options right to their fingertips.

Integrating feedback and ideas from our communities, Oakmont’s corporate Operations and Communications team rolled out The SHIPT Shopping Experience with interactive meetings at each Oakmont community – giving residents and their families the chance to ask questions,

Shout It From the ‘Ruff’tops: Our Puppy Has Been Born!

We are so excited to announce that at long last, a new litter of beautiful puppies has been born to our friends at Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs!

2019 marks the second time in three years that Oakmont Cares will partner with Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs to facilitate the training and adoption of a specially trained medical service dog for a Michigan veteran. Residents of all five Oakmont communities are leading the charge to again raise $22,000+ to adopt a service dog for a servicemember in need and will spearhead a variety of events, fundraisers, and campaigns throughout the year to reach this goal. 

Since starting to fundraise in early spring, more than a quarter of the funds for this adoption have already been raised. Stay tuned to the Oakmont Facebook page as well as this blog to find exciting updates on naming, training, and more!

Each year, all Oakmont Communities participate in a charitable Oakmont Cares effort. In 2018, $12,000 was raised to support the recovery of Oakland Country Sheriff’s Deputy David Hack.

Michigan Opera Theatre Brings Opera Classics and Broadway Favorites to Oakmont Northville

At Oakmont Senior Communities, we believe that art and expression are essential parts of daily living. That’s why you’ll not only find custom-curated artwork in all of our buildings but also activity calendars that feature plenty of entertainers, interactive art projects, and trips to galleries and community performances.









This is why when we received a generous offer of a performance from the Michigan Opera Theater, we knew it was a perfect fit for our community.

On Thursday, June 6th, two members of the Michigan Opera Theatre, Clodagh Earls, soprano, and David Moan, baritone, brought their exceptional singing talents to Oakmont Northville for a truly incredible performance. For the better part of an hour, the engaging duo performed a repertoire of selections from both grand opera and some classic Broadway favorites that our residents absolutely loved.

This amazing program of bringing the Michigan Opera Theatre to Oakmont Northville was made possible by through a generous grant from the Mary Thompson Foundation.

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.
