Our Community

A Community with Friends

Residents at Royal Oaks make it their personal mission to get new residents "in the groove" right away. Whether it's reaching out to you for a meal in one of our dining venues, inviting you to join in a yoga class, or encouraging participation in one or more of our myriad of volunteer activities, Royal Oaks residents embrace new friendships.  Sign up for a lecture or class through Learning Tree, our lifelong, on-campus "university" and you'll enrich your mind and grow new friends! Check out our blog to get to know us even better.



We offer four Lifecare contract types: Type A non-refundable, Type A 90% refundable, Type A 50% refundable, and Type B 90% refundable. 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 Type A Lifecare residents for no increase in your monthly fee. A Type B Lifecare contract includes a discounted rate for higher levels of care. Your Royal Oaks residency counselor can assist in helping you determine what may be the best contract for your personal situation. Call 623-815-4132 for more information.

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.

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.
