Royal Oaks owns and maintains all residences, freeing you from that burden so you can travel, volunteer, work out, visit family, socialize, and enjoy these active years. Your home is uniquely yours when you move to Royal Oaks. Choosing from our wide array of options in our Design Center and adding your own custom and personal touches, you can create a home that reflects your style of comfort and life. Fees include a one-time entry fee and a monthly service fee. These fees entitle you to live in your selected home, customized to your likes, and enjoy all the amenities of the community. If you would ever need assisted living, memory care, or long-term complete supportive living, those services are available to all Lifecare residents for no increase in your monthly fee.

The Illingworth Assisted Living Center, the Friendship House for memory care, and the Care Center for Complete Supportive Living are each available to non-residents on a monthly fee basis.

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.

Royal Oaks' seminar on preparing for your future made a dry subject fun!

Posted: 7/21/2017

Royal Oaks resident Claudia Rumwell and attorney Allison Kierman presented a two-part seminar, "Celebrity Wills Can Be Wacko, but Yours Doesn't Have to Be" to a very appreciative audience. "We want to present informative material in a lively manner," explained Marketing Director Vicki Ullery, "and this hour seminar certainly accomplished that."

Claudia kicked off the seminar. She is an educator, author, nurse, and patient advocate. As an expert in her field, and for the majority of her nursing career, Claudia was often presenting workshops and/or providing training to other medical personnel and physicians about the vascular field, along with publishing three books and multiple articles in the field of vascular disease. She had the privilege of advocating for her own parent's care for 12 years as their health needs changed and they moved from total independence, to assisted living, and finally to extended care.  This "hands on" experience as a parent caregiver inspired her to create The Senior Care Organizer, which was the topic of her presentation. Seniors are encouraged to purchase this excellent binder so their adult children or power of attorneys have all the information needed as their loved ones or clients move through the aging stages. 

Allison followed with a light-hearted presentation on Celebrity Wills. Allison is the founder of Kierman Law and specializes in focusing on life and estate planning. Allison concentrates her practice on guiding families through the wills, trusts, and estate process and probate litigation. She received her J.D. from the University of Iowa College of Law, with honors (2005), her M.Sc.from the London School of Economics and Political Science, with honors (2002), and her B.A. from Baylor University in political science.
