Oak Trace is operated by Lifespace Communities Inc. of Des Moines Iowa. It was added to the Lifespace family of senior’s communities in 2011 and was formerly known as Fairview Village.

Through its 12 different facilities, the parent corporation serves more than 5,000 residents with 2,800 staff in seven states across the USA Its key value statement and promise is that vital, purpose-driven seniors will discover freedom and opportunity under its various roofs.

Lifespace Communities was founded in 1976 as Life Care Retirement Communities and changed its name in 2009. Oak Trace offers residents what it calls Life Care support and a full continuum of care. As a not-for-profit Corporation, it offers a cost-management system for care for life. This means that costs of living for residents are predictable for life even if long-term care is needed under its continuum of care guarantee. Care is provided by people the residents already know at costs below what skilled care would cost if purchased independently.

The facility claims that it has created a financially stable and operationally sound senior living system and states that its main goal is to meet and surpass the expectations of residents by supplying a wide variety of choice in residences, services, activities and amenities. The residence website includes a cost calculator that allows prospective residents to establish how much they can afford at any of the dozen Lifespace Communities. The calculator starts with basic information about a resident’s current household size, income and net worth and links people to floor plans that match their means.

The Lifespace Community FitSix program was first developed at its Bloomington Village and now is available system-wide including at Oak Trace. Through it residents find fulfilling activities and programs that touch their intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual, vocational and physical dimensions.

Among the exceptional communal spaces at Oak Terrace are the barn, which is an antiques showcase. There is also a computer classroom facility, a library, and a number of well-appointed lounge areas. The acres of well landscaped green spaces include the pond and the walking trails are dotted with quiet benches and patios where people can linger. Up to three meals a day are provided for those who want or need them and scheduled transportation is also available.

The accommodations are state of the art and very contemporary. Townhomes and garden homes feature one and a half to two bathrooms, full kitchens and garden views.
