All Oakmont Senior Living residents and staff are accounted for and settling into new living arrangements after wildfires forced evacuation of our four Assisted Living and Memory Care communities in Santa Rosa. Our primary goal is to ensure the safety of our residents and to reassure their families. During this process we will continue to update our website and send out emails to our residents and families every 48 hours.

Status of our Communities
- Oakmont of Villa Capri was unfortunately destroyed by the fire. We have been successful in connecting with our residents and families regarding housing and placement options. The Villa Capri community will be rebuilt; however, we estimate it could take up to 18 months.
- Varenna sustained damage to the northern end of the property and to one of the casitas. We approximate reopening in 5-8 weeks once the restore and restoration is complete, and we have the approvals to allow our residents to move back home.
- At Fountaingrove Lodge and The Terraces, we have started the restoration process. We anticipate reopening both communities in 3-4 weeks once everything has been complete, and we have the approvals to allow our residents to move back home.
(Please know these are estimated timelines and subject to change. We are working feverishly so that our residents can return home as quickly as possible.)
It was wonderful to see so many of our residents this past week and provide them with some of their personal belongings. If you have any additional questions or need to reach us directly, please call (707) 353-5052 and leave a message; or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
