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.

Charitable & Planned Giving

The retirement years can be the most fulfilling years of life, and Royal Oaks is fortunate to have such generous donors to help facilitate the means of support and services to provide comfort, security and life satisfaction for the residents. Generosity is the core of our community.

Royal Oaks has three areas of need – the Foundation, Fund Development, and Scholarship Fund. Donations to any of these areas are tax deductible as charitable contributions to a 501(c)(3) organization. Please contact Gretchen Cobb at 623-815-4111 for a further explanation of ways to give.

  • The Foundation is committed to the belief that aging with dignity and grace includes freedom from financial worry. The Foundation strengthens the mission of Royal Oaks by providing financial support to residents through a confidential financial assistance program for those who can no longer partially or entirely pay for their residency.
  • Fund Development enhances the campus through purchasing goods and services for the betterment of the campus; and also by financially supporting programs to benefit employees or residents, such as The Learning Tree, our lifelong learning program. In the past, this fund has provided such necessities as: wheelchair accessible transportation vans, hi-lo beds in the Health Care Center, a Cadillac to elegantly transport residents, a vision magnifier to assist residents in reading, automatic doors throughout the campus, a piano for the front lobby, remodeling the Health Care Center and construction of the Assisted Living Facility. A primary focus for the past two years has been assisting with building The Friendship House, the new memory care building in the Royal Oaks community.
  • The Employee Scholarship Fund was established to assist employees with their pursuit of continuing education, college degrees, certifications and professional development. Employees may qualify after meeting certain criteria and petitioning the Scholarship Committee. Employees are also required to maintain an acceptable GPA throughout their education and uphold their employment status at Royal Oaks for a specified time period following completion of their classes.
