Brandon Oaks is an award-winning LifePlan community offering a continuum of care that includes independent and assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing and rehab services. Residents can enjoy a carefree, active and independent lifestyle for as long as possible, with the security of knowing that around-the-clock assistance with daily living tasks and more intensive care are available should the need arise. Independent living residents have priority access to assisted living accommodations when their physical or cognitive circumstances change. Seniors can pursue their hobbies and interests, take wellness classes, swim in the heated pool and enjoy planned social events. Assisted living residents join others in the dining room to share meals and conversation three times a day, and they can take advantage of scheduled transportation to take them safely to off-site doctor appointments.
