Residences

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. Phone 623-815-4132 for more information. You may also want to download this checklist to use when comparing assisted living centers.

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 CEO Kendra Eberhart recipient of Award of Honor

Posted: 6/15/2017

Leading Age Arizona has awarded Kendra Eberhart with the 2017 Award of Honor. She was recognized at the June Leading Age Arizona conference. This video helps celebrate her award. See the photos of the staff, board, and family members who attended the awards dinner to help her celebrate.

Nominated by her staff, Kendra just celebrated 30 years at the Sun City retirement community. Here are excerpts of her nomination submitted to Leading Age:

Kendra began her career at Royal Oaks as the Human Resources Director. She quickly moved up to Assistant to the Executive Director and was named CEO in 1996.

Kendra is the backbone of our organization. Over the years, Kendra has guided Royal Oaks through countless renovations and expansions. During her tenure as CEO, we have added two Assisted Living buildings, a Life Enrichment Center including a 300-seat auditorium, several new dining venues, new administrative offices, an expanded front lobby, a state-of-the-art fitness center, new indoor and outdoor pools, and acquired additional land for future expansion. All of this was accomplished while achieving and maintaining a Fitch "A" rating for financial stability and excellence. Every part of Royal Oaks has been, and continues to be, renovated to ensure the campus looks fresh, new and appealing for current and future residents.

Kendra served eight years on the Leading Age Arizona Board of Directors, and was Chairman for her final two years on that Board. She gives of her time and talents to the outside community as well through involvement in a number of philanthropic endeavors.

Our Vision Statement is: Inspiring Passion. Connecting People. Kendra is our best "connector" and she does it with style and flair. Royal Oaks' tagline is: Engaging – Inspired – Vibrant. Those words pretty well sum up Kendra Eberhart.
