Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect from senior living in Oakland?

Piedmont Gardens, as a HumanGood community, is guided by a mission of helping everyone live their best life. A Life Plan Community like Piedmont Gardens is intentionally designed to support social connections, well-being, and security, taking a holistic approach to better living. We offer independent living homes as well as care options all on one campus. Our vast range of amenities includes our Sky Room event space, a library, a full-service salon and barber shop, welcoming common areas, a garden with lush landscaping, safe designated parking, and tons of year-round events. No matter what you’re into, Piedmont Gardens can help you spend more time doing it.

Does senior living improve health?

It can. A senior living community makes it easier to stay physically, mentally, and socially active. This can help stave off depression and boredom, encourage you to maintain a healthy weight, and keep your brain active and functioning well. Moreover, you’ll have help if you ever need it, and the peace of mind that comes from avoiding isolation and living near caring neighbors.

What amenities should I look for in a senior living community?

Choosing a Life Plan Community is a chance to shape your future.  Look for a community that takes a holistic approach to well-being. Are there opportunities for socializing, for fitness, for healthy eating, for learning and growth? What about other hobbies and amenities that are important to you? It’s your life, and you know best what you need. The right community is one that centers those needs. Before you begin your search for a new home, make a list of the senior living amenities that matter most to you, then ask about those at each community you tour.

Is there good food in senior living?

Piedmont Gardens' fresh dining principles focus on locally sourced ingredients and a creative, health-driven approach to the meals we prepare. Our menus feature a balanced offering of gourmet cuisine, casual fare and classic comfort foods, all prepared from scratch. Check out a sample menu.
