Connection isn’t our goal. It’s our promise.
That’s why life at Holiday Retirement isn’t prescriptive, it’s personal. This is an era of opportunity to find passions that spark curiosity and people that inspire us to learn who one is. Life at Holiday Retirement isn’t about a building or amenities, it’s about the ways those simple pleasures and the people we share them with transform us every day. A meal becomes a memory. A trip to the store becomes an adventure. And a walk around the grounds becomes a tradition between friends. We are Holiday Retirement and we believe life is best lived among friends on your terms.
What are your interests?
Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site
The convenience of Sheldon Oaks' on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.
We have outside clients that come into the salon as well as our foot care clinic.
Fitness Right at Home
Sheldon Oaks residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.
One of the most popular classes is Chair Stretching, offered twice a week.
Let Us Serve You
Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and caring by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Sheldon Oaks' dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.
The Chef is very involved with the residents, and hearing their feedback on the menu and individual meals. There's a roundtable every month to ensure that collaborative effort is taking place. The Chef truly cares about the food he presents.
Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community
There’s so much to explore in the Eugene area and Sheldon Oaks makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.
Some of the popular bus excursions are to the casino, the Oregon coast, and various local restaurants.
Life is Never Boring
Sheldon Oaks' comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.
Residents with a green thumb love to help take care of the community garden. Sometimes the fruits of their labor even end up in the chef's meals! And we have plenty of tailgate parties to cheer on the Oregon Ducks. We don't miss a game.
Pets Make Life Better
Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Sheldon Oaks. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.
There are two resident dogs that the whole community has sort of adopted as their own. They get plenty of attention, and treats!
Stay Connected with Technology and Wifi
Sheldon Oaks is equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use a community desktop computer to stay up to date or connect your personal devices to the WiFi.
Once a month we have a technology Q&A, where residents can ask staff questions about their smart phones, tablets, and computers.
Travel and Adventure is Always Available
The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.
Kamlu Retirement Inn also operates a program that lets residents get a taste of faraway countries. Once a month, residents can enjoy a themed happy hour with music, food, and presentations related to a new country. They also get a stamp in their community passport.
Lend a Helping Hand
Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts.
We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
Our residents organize donations for Toys for Tots, Bags of Love, and Exotic Bird Rescue Oregon. We also have outside volunteers that come to the community, 4J students as well as students from different middle schools and high schools.
