Devon Oaks Assisted Living, an Eliza Jennings community in Westlake, offers choices for care and services with your individual preferences and needs in mind.
Shirley and Jim Hagerty moved to Devon Oaks more than three years ago so they could age together and receive the personalized support they might require as their needs changed over time.
Devon Oaks offers a homelike setting with flexible meal times, medication management, and assistance with personal care for those who need it.
Above all, Shirley enjoys the relationships she has developed with Devon Oaks staff members. “The nurses here are great, I feel very comfortable with them. The maintenance staff is fabulous!”
Shirley appreciates that the staff accommodates her preferences and routine. When Shirley was following a special diet, the staff took great care to provide the foods she requested.
Staff members take time to learn the interests of each resident and create opportunities for programs and outings that encourage everyone to participate. Shirley especially enjoys going to movies across the street at Crocker Park. “The Life Enrichment staff is good at finding movies residents enjoy,” said Shirley.
“Before moving to Devon Oaks, I enjoyed visiting casinos when I traveled, and watching the people there,” said Shirley. When Shirley asked about the possibility of going to a casino, the staff arranged a trip. Year-round excursions to museums and area attractions, restaurants, and shopping also offer many opportunities to get out in the community. The walking club travels twice weekly to area parks or to the mall for fitness fun.
“My life is so much better since I moved to Devon Oaks,” said Shirley. “Everyone genuinely cares. I am grateful to be able to remain in the same community as my husband, and I have complete confidence in the care we receive.”
