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 and a 57-suite Complete Supportive Living building for gracious long-term-care assistance.

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 Life Plan Community/CCRC. Since the IRS recognizes campuses like ours 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.

Powerful words from a Royal Oaks resident to our CEO

Posted: 6/19/2017

Dear Kendra, As you likely already know, that I have had two recent stays in the Care Center at Royal Oaks. These were after I had been in the hospital three times. I was reassured about many things during my stay in the Care Center here. The nurses and others were kind and desiring to help me "get better."

Although I was (I think) not as dependent as others in the Care Center, I still needed specific help at specific times, and as I got to know the nurses and care givers better, I developed a trusting and mutually friendly relationship with many of the staff. It was so good to know that I could be admitted when I was unable to take care of myself at home, two different times! Also both Colleen and Rebekah from the Wellness Center came to my house to help figure out what might be done to help me when I was overwhelmed. They both took the time to help me figure out what to do on each of their several visits.

I appreciated the meals served three times a day there, and food choices which made it easy to vary the choices. When one is weakened and often extremely hungry, the dining room was a source of much needed nourishment, plus socializing with friends from out of the past!

Royal Oaks Care Center proved to be a haven for me when I needed it most! Since I returned to my Garden Home on June 1, I have been able to manage with less help from others who live here, several in my neighborhood! 

Wanted you to know that Royal Oaks really has come through for me when I needed it the most! My family are also both grateful and gratified, as well! Thankfully I am now well on my way to recovery.

Thanks to you and all the folks here…Security, maintenance, tray delivery staff, and others!

May God continue to bless Royal Oaks and keep her flag flying!

Marilee M. Reetz

10 year resident!
