About Us

Royal Oaks Lifecare, a financially sound retirement community, started as a dream of Dr. J. Davis Illingworth and Mr. Roe Walker. In the winter of 1983, Royal Oaks opened its doors. Through the years, Royal Oaks has made improvements, built new structures, and acquired additional land. The 38-acre campus includes 258 Independent Living Apartments, 102 Independent Living Garden Homes, 59 Assisted Living apartments, a 56-suite Memory Care Center (coming in early 2015) and a 60-bed skilled nursing facility.

Royal Oaks is home to approximately 600 residents and maintains a strong and stable financial standing. We have a net worth of over $25 million. Royal Oaks is one of only a handful of communities across the nation that has received an "A" rating from Fitch Ratings, a global credit rating agency.

A tremendous tax benefit is provided to seniors when entering a CCRC. Since the IRS recognizes CCRCs as medical facilities, Lifecare residents are allowed to deduct a certain percentage of the Entrance Fee AND Monthly Service Fee as medical deductions. The percentage is substantial for our residents--the Royal Oak representative will be able to elaborate. We encourage incoming residents to get financial advice on how best to take advantage of this benefit, based on your personal situation. This article from Smart Money magazine may be of interest.

Royal Oaks is a non-profit and residents are assured their fees will come back to them during their life stay. These promises are also backed by the People of Faith Foundation, Inc. which holds over $15 million in investment assets. The reserves are set aside to ensure that no resident, who through no fault of their own becomes unable to make their monthly service fee payment, would be asked to leave. This is an astounding promise, and it has been kept for thousands of Royal Oaks' residents for nearly three decades.

A vibrant oasis in the heart of Arizona.

Find out why Royal Oaks is so special.

Welcome! While there are many active retirement communities in Sun City, there is much that makes Royal Oaks distinct. In 2013, we celebrated three decades of active, enriched retirement living! When you drive into our gated community, you'll notice the mature, abundant landscaping, creating a neighborhood of warmth and beauty. Once you step into the lobby, you'll see for yourself that the ongoing renovations make the place look brand new.

The Royal Oaks Campus

In keeping with its Sun City, Arizona location, our upscale retirement community is an oasis of 38 lush acres featuring a myriad of plants, trees and rose gardens along koi ponds and walking paths. Continual improvements to the campus have resulted in state-of-the-art communal and private areas. Our main building bustles like Grand Central Station, complete with all the amenities of a small city.

Fitch "A" Rated and Financially Sound

We know there are a variety of Arizona retirement communities to consider. Royal Oaks is unique: it is the only full Lifecare community in Sun City and one of only a handful of Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) in the country who have been granted an "A" rating by Fitch global credit rating organization. Our most recent Annual Report may be of interest to you. The bottom line is that we offer a full continuum of care to older adults, from independent living residences to round the clock care and memory care. None of this would be possible without outstanding leadership and fiscal solidity.

Tax Benefits of CCRCs

Do you know of the terrific tax benefits when you join a Lifecare community? Read this article from Smart Money Magazine. If this topic interests you even further, read this article, too. Royal Oaks' long-term-care areas on campus are quite robust and you can deduct greater than 45% of your Entrance Fee and Monthly Service Fees. When you tour our community, be sure to inquire about this tax benefit. If you are thinking about moving to a CCRC, you will find an abundance of research on how to choose the one that is right for you.
