From Our Community, Friends and Family


Our first impression of The Waters of Oakdale has never changed. From the greeting and welcome we received, to the absolutely beautiful surroundings, impeccable cleanliness, we immediately knew this is the place for mom. First impressions are sometimes spot on! That was 4 years ago. The Waters Team and residents have allowed mom to flourish in so many ways. With these very difficult times of Covid, they have not only done an amazing job keeping the building healthy, but they work SO HARD to eliminate the lonliness and isolation for these residents. Thank you, thank you Janel and team for your wonderful activities each Wednesday! Our communication with the entire staff is prompt, professional and still personal. Our family is so grateful for the Waters!

The Waters of Oakdale is a blessing. Clean, friendly, welcoming environment. The kind, passionate staff are a true blessing. Ms.Cara is a lovely, passionate, big hearted caregiver. My grandpa was a resident in memory care and then hospice and the care received was more than ever expected. I highly recommend The Waters.

The Waters of Oakdale is fantastic!! The staff is wonderful! My mom has lived there for about a year, moving from CA to MN. Before her move, she was a wilting flower and it broke my heart to see her live her golden years that way. Today, she is flourishing! She’s smiling all the time, humming to herself (which always indicated she was in a happy mood) and is definitely more engaging. I can’t thank the staff enough!
