When I move to The Oaks, do I own my independent living residence?
At The Oaks at Denville, as at all Life Plan Communities, you enter into a service agreement. This agreement gives you use of your home on The Oaks at Denville campus, as well as access to our array of services, amenities, and programs. It’s not a real estate transaction, so you don’t own your residence.
I’m still very active. Are there activities at The Oaks?
You can continue to enjoy your current interests, plus you’ll have many new cultural, educational, and recreational opportunities to explore. Take a trip to the Met, join a watercolor class, or play competitive bridge in a perfectly matched foursome. We also feature nightly entertainment, lively happy hours, fitness classes, discussion groups, and a wide array of volunteer opportunities.
Does The Oaks offer dining choices?
Yes, compared to other area communities, we offer one of the most flexible dining choices you’ll find! Whether you choose casual bistro dining (available every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), or more traditional dinner dining, you’ll enjoy delicious healthful food. We also offer popular brunches and buffets throughout the week. Prefer to dine at home? Takeout is always available. And guests are always welcome!
Do you allow wine with dinner?
Aside from our complimentary happy hours, you may bring wine or beer to dinner.
Can guests stay in my home at The Oaks?
Friends and family are welcome to visit with you. Need more room? We offer a guest room for a small fee. All visitors are registered for the safety of all residents and guests.
May I bring my pet with me?
Pets are part of our families. We accept well-behaved domestic pets. Please contact one of our team members for the details.
What if I run out of money? How do I pay for the cost of senior living at The Oaks?
We have a financial qualifying process that’s conservative in nature and based on your age at entry, your assets, and your income. If, through no fault of your own, you someday can’t make your full monthly payment, the Springpoint Foundation offers a Resident Financial Assistance program to provide financial assistance on your behalf. Springpoint has never asked a resident to leave due to inability to pay.
