Welcome to Scarlet Oaks Retirement Community. We are located in the gaslight district of Clifton, close to the hospitals yet nestled in a 43-acre campus serving individuals in all stages of retirement. Scarlet Oaks is committed to provide top notch services through caring, knowledgeable and heartfelt professionals. We offer a community encouraging independence, personal growth, creativity and happiness.

The Willows building is our Assisted Living offering nursing services, dietary, social enrichment and light housekeeping. The Assisted Living residents enjoy entertainment in and outside of the facility.

Our Assisted Living allows independence for the resident while around-the-clock nursing staff is available. Our staff is here to meet each individual’s needs, whether that is nursing, housekeeping, and/or daily living skills.

Our Pines unit is our Skilled Nursing Facility with nursing care available at all times including therapy, IV therapy, hemodialysis and more.

While nursing care is priority, at Scarlet Oaks we know quality care is more. Our Activities program is designed to provide music, games, reading, and outings to help each person maintain interest in their surroundings. Our interdisciplinary team works together to provide the best experience for each resident.

We offer several amenities in all areas of living. Residents choose our programs and life enrichment activities we offer. Currently we have bingo, musical entertainment, religious services, games, shopping trips and outdoor walks to enjoy the beautiful campus. Most of our rooms are private with cable access. Residents enjoy decorating their living units and participating in monthly events we coordinate for everyone’s enjoyment.

Accommodations, Amenities and Services

A Grand Mansion with a Grander Mission: Retirement in Comfort and Beauty

Situated on 43 acres of park-like grounds offering a magnificent view of the city, Scarlet Oaks boasts one of Cincinnati’s oldest and grandest mansions. Donated in 1908 by E.H. Huenenfeld, one of the city’s wealthiest socialites, the land and mansion were first established as a retirement home in 1915. From its very beginnings, the mission of Scarlet Oaks came from the founders’ deeply held values of quality care for seniors in the community. Ever since, our goal has been to provide loving care and well-maintained surroundings to those in need of a comfortable place to retire.

Skilled Care

Skilled nursing care often refers to the care provided to a patient by licensed nurses during a short post hospital stay at a skilled nursing facility. Our licensed nurses are available 24 hours a day to care for patients requiring treatment for intravenous therapy, tube feeding, daily medication management and training, monitoring and treatment of changing health status, complex wound care, and more.

Rehabilitative Care

Rehabilitative nursing care often involves working with a patient to teach them how to monitor, manage and live with their diagnoses. This includes medication management teaching, wound care teaching, feeding tube management, and helping to provide a general layman’s understanding of diagnoses.

Intermediate Care

Intermediate nursing care refers to care provided to patients, usually referred to as residents, who reside in the facility for a short respite stay or on a longer term basis. These residents receive all of the same benefits of 24 hour licensed nursing care as above mentioned, but often don’t have the rapidly changing health status as someone just discharging from a hospital.

Wound Care

Wounds can have many degrees of severity. Scarlet Oaks has a team of nurses and therapists who focus on the healing of wounds, whether acquired during a surgery or procedure, general skin breakdown, or from an infection. Our team is able to provide a variety of treatments, and are constantly assessing the healing process and brainstorming the best way to comfortably, safely and quickly heal a wound. This includes negative pressure wound care and IV therapies. Please refer to our rehabilitation page for additional information on how our therapy team is involved with this care.

Memory Care

Sometimes with advanced Alzheimer’s or other memory related illnesses, it is important to have a smaller, less stimulating environment. Scarlet Oaks has a unit specially equipped to work with residents who need a more relaxed, calm atmosphere. We are able to meet the needs of residents who may wander, be resistant to care, and need a structured setting to allow for the safest, secure and caring home.
