One of the things I like best about Whitaker Glen is that it is very welcoming and you do not remain a stranger for very long here. The buildings are set among vintage oak trees, which encourages walks on the spacious campus. There are three residence buildings, each is connected and all lead to the dining center and activity center. The campus is beautiful and very natural, you never have to go out side when its hot or the weather is bad.
Features I find important are that we all share a common dining room and have our own kitchens and washer and dryers in our apartments. The comradery between the management staff and the residents is exceptional. There is a Residents’ Council consisting of representatives from each building. I serve as the chairman of this group. It is easy for me to call Whitaker Glen my home.
I was having difficulty breathing, I called down to speak to a RN and Linda was here in less than ten minutes. She called my Doctor and he said I needed to get to an emergency room. Linda called the front desk and Caleb our activities director drove me to Rex Emergency room within five minutes. The staff at Whitaker Glen could not have been any more understanding, proficient or kind. I was amazed when I returned with how many letters and cards were left for me. The kindness of the residents touched my heart. Whitaker Glen is a great place to call your home.
The down town location is very important to me. I was very fearful to be tucked away in “a place for mom” located beyond all belt lines. Instead I am within a 10 minute walk of five points. I am close to Cameron village, and not far from downtown museums restaurants, universities, churches, and volunteer opportunities. The Whitaker Glen staff is great, we have a small and welcoming community come and join us.
When I compare my expenses living at my home previously before coming to the Oaks, I find many advantages to the cost and services offered at the Oaks at Whitaker Glen. Also, the staff has been very helpful to me medically, socially, and astute quality of life in learning more about myself and other people.
CCRCs generally charge a one-time entrance fee, in addition to monthly fees. These monthly fees may escalate according to care level. As care needs increase, other funding options may become available such as Long Term Care Insurance and Medicare.
