SCV residents are invited to see the completed Oakmont community, sample the restaurant-style food made by Oakmont’s executive chef and celebrate alongside Oakmont staff and future residents beginning at 11 a.m.

Then the following week, Oakmont’s future residents are set to move starting January 11, according to Mary Dembkowski of Oakmont of Santa Clarita.

“We’re very excited,” she said. “The community just continues to look more and more beautiful every day as we get ready for our opening in January.”

In addition to both independent and assisted living options available alongside a variety of five star amenities– which range from a movie theater and day spa to a pet park and wellness center –Oakmont of Santa Clarita also offers a specialized memory care program called Traditions.

“It’s very close to my heart because I had a personal experience with my own mom with Alzheimer’s,” Dembkowski said. “So I am just very, very excited to be a part of this particular part of Oakmont.”

Traditions will be a separate wing of the community entirely dedicated to providing specialized care that meets the need of those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Life skills stations will promote the continuation of everyday tasks, wandering paths through private gardens will allow program residents to have guided outside walks and tactile art will decorate the hallways for sensory stimulation.

For added safety, in-room motion detectors will notify caregivers if a resident has gotten up in the middle of the night, and memory boxes will be set up outside of residents’ rooms to both help them identify their apartment and to allow families to tell their story.

“It offers a secured environment where our families feel like their loved ones are safe in a home-like environment,” Dembkowski said, adding that the program’s features are designed “to give (its residents) all the dignity that they deserve.”
