We’d love to go on about all the ways Oak Cottage can accommodate and cater to you, but our residents and families do it so much better! Read all the great things our family has to say about us below.

Thank you for loving the residents as you would love your own family

We could not be more pleased with the love, care, and attention our father receives at Oak Cottage. After touring Oak Cottage we knew we had found the best place in town. Thank you for loving the residents as you would love your own family.

Just Right For My Father
My father is living in Oak Cottage of Santa Barbara. We love it. His room is perfect for him, just right. We have no complaints whatsoever and he has adjusted. The staff is wonderful. They have Bingo, exercise, trips to the beach and walks. They keep them occupied which is really well and we’re very happy. The people in the office and caregivers are excellent.

Very cozy, comfortable, and clean
I recently visited Oak Cottage. What a treat. I found Oak Cottage very cozy, comfortable, and clean. I learned that their philosophy for residents is based individually on the resident’s specific needs, and that they receive much more attention than in bigger facilities in Santa Barbara. This is comforting to know when considering senior care in Santa Barbara. I personally would recommend a visit if you are starting to look.

I can sleep at night knowing my mom is being cared for at a time in her life when she needs it

My mother has been at Oak Cottage for over a year. I love the homey atmosphere. There are animals and lots of activities. My mom can walk out of her apartment and there is her community. The staff genuinely cares about the residents. I went and visited a lot of places for my mother and this has been a great fit for her. She is much calmer since she has been here. She tells me often that she likes where she lives and appreciates her friends. I can sleep at night knowing my mom is being cared for at a time in her life when she needs it. I am grateful to the Oak Cottage staff for being there for my mother.

Truly committed to the residents and their families
Their executive director is truly committed to the residents and their families. I also love in particular their “Vibrant Life” activity program that encourages “being adventurous, being connected, being well, etc.” It is a great program.

Staff members are affectionate and truly caring toward my father
My father, Paul, has been in Oak Cottage since March 2016. I visited from out of town last week and was newly impressed with the pleasant atmosphere and thoughtful care. They arranged a wonderful birthday party for Paul and served a custom cake topped with his favorite candy. The party overlapped a music session and the whole experience was delightful. Staff members are affectionate and truly caring toward my father. Many thanks to you all!

They provide so many amenities that other care centers cannot provide

After previewing numerous memory care facilities in Santa Barbara, it was readily apparent Oak Cottage is the premier facility. They provide so many amenities that other care centers cannot provide. They have qualified, caring, top notch caregivers … organic, delicious, meals … daily nutritious smoothies … energetic exercise coordinators. Even more importantly, Ed tells me he is happy. He gets wonderful hygiene care with some added perks like haircuts, manicures & massages. He has not cried once or begged to come home … a big plus for his loved ones. We feel like we are one “big family”. Thank you, Oak Cottage for ALL the love, care and expertise you provide.
