Warm, Caring Assisted Living
in Oakland, California
When you love your independence but would like a helping hand now and again, you’ll find just what you need at Lake Park. Our specially-trained, licensed professionals will help with all the basic activities of daily living—whatever you need, it’s always your choice—including bathing, dressing, grooming, and medication management. And, rather than à la carte, Lake Park offers all-inclusive care as part of our monthly assisted living rate.
Because we’re a Life Plan community, residents have priority access and can seamlessly transition from independent living to assisted living, quickly and simply, if and when circumstances change.
