Independent Living

Dominican Oaks has proudly provided independent and assisted living services since July of 1989. Located in sunny Santa Cruz, California where the redwood woods meet the sea and home to the famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Dominican Oaks’ 206 apartment community is conveniently situated in a beautifully landscaped and wooded setting.

Rent is on a month-to-month basis and includes a full package of services such as three delicious meals daily prepared by our full-time Executive Chef, most utilities, weekly housekeeping and laundry service, scheduled transportation and stimulating social and cultural programs. Other conveniences available are an on-site salon, podiatrist, fitness areas, resident store, banking services, with shopping and restaurants close by. The 24-hour professional staff offers a carefree, comfortable and independent lifestyle in a safe and secure environment. While our goal is to help maintain independence, we do offer Assisted Living services should the need arise. This program is based on availability.
