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.


117 Mimosa Way: A refreshing residence built for fun

Posted: 6/5/2019

Our Mimosa apartment may not be named after the refreshing brunch drink, but the two do seamlessly blend a clean and contemporary feel with casual elegance. In Apartment 117, open spaces lend this layout its uncanny ability to entertain large or small groups, yet creates intimacy for the ones calling it home every day. Designed without hallways, the Mimosa's 1,204 sq. ft. is nearly always described as "much larger than that!"

A magnificent master and fabulous finishes

One of the highlights of the Mimosa is its sumptuous master retreat. The 19-foot-long master bedroom includes a private bath and walk-in closet. Some residents have even chosen to design this large room to incorporate hobby space. Ask to see the artist studio that one resident incorporated into the Mimosa's master bedroom!

Simply put, this apartment comes upgraded with everything. Vertiglides on the Arcadia door keep the upscale look as you move to the generously sized patio, which is also accessible from the home's second bedroom. String up some fun lights and bring on the guests any night of the week!

Nestled near all the activity

As a bonus, this home is very close to a community social area, extending your living space if your guest list is extensive. And when we throw your housewarming party, our catering department's appetizers and specialty drinks will have your friends clamoring to move in, too!

Apartment 117 is a very short walk to The Acorn Grill, The Oak Room and the Arbors, our three dining restaurants offering fare ranging from casual to elegant. Relax first in the Cactus Pub or the pool patio, letting our wait staff make your favorite cocktail before heading in for dinner. Or grab a quick bite after a yoga or Zumba class in our Evergreen Fitness Center, where the indoor and outdoor pools are ready day or night for your enjoyment.

Want to completely decorate your own Mimosa apartment? Apartment 319 is the same layout and has a remarkable view of trees and the neighborhood, with the mountains in the background. It's ready for you to choose all your favorite finishes and furnishings and make it uniquely your own. Ask to see both apartments on your visit to Royal Oaks.

Of course, in addition to a no-maintenance lifestyle in beautiful surroundings, a primary reason people move to a Type A Life Plan Community (also known as CCRCs) is the security knowing you will never again need to relocate, and your monthly fee won't increase if you need a higher level of living. To dive deeper, ask about our refundable and non-refundable Type A choices when you call 623-815-4132 to arrange for a personal tour of the Mimosa apartment at Royal Oaks!
