Do you allow pets? Can I bring my dog or cat with me?
Yes. Pets are welcome in your assisted living apartment, with your love and care for their needs. Small pets are welcome to be "visitors only" in the memory care apartments.
How do I reserve an apartment?

What makes Ecumen's memory care different?
Our award-winning Ecumen Awakenings program emphasizes human relationships and non-pharmaceutical remedies. We are driven to help re-awaken many residents whose physical and cognitive abilities have often been masked by an inappropriate use of antipsychotic drugs, by exploring alternative care approaches that could provide them a better quality of life.
How is it determined when a resident needs to move from Assisted Living to Memory Care?
Our nursing team will recommend when Memory Care is appropriate. When a resident needs a specialized, safe, and secure care environment due to the progression of dementia, we will communicate what we are seeing to the family, offer an assessment and discuss the supports provided by Memory Care.
What is the dining experience like at Oaks & Pines?
At Ecumen Oaks & Pines, dining can begin at our continental breakfast. Lunch, our main meal of the day, is included in the monthly apartment rental/basic service fee. The evening meal can be purchased either individually or as a package. Residents often enjoy having family and friends over for a meal, which we happily accommodate.
