The grand opening for Oakmont Assisted Living’s flagship group home located at 5545 E. Yucca St. in Scottsdale opened its doors with a large open house celebration bringing together many members of the elderly care industry.

John McCain’s Veteran Coalition member Rick Erickson took the honors of cutting the ribbon for the fellow Marine veteran, and entrepreneur, behind Oakmont Assisted Living, according to a press release.

Oakmont Assisted Living was co-founded by Aaron Waldman and Jonathan Shaw, with a couple of investors who are equally set on providing meaningful services to society with their projects. Mr. Shaw, who served multiple deployments in the Marine Corps and is a veteran of the Iraq war, was honored to have such a prominent member of the veteran community, and fellow Marine, cut the ribbon at their new group home.

Their mission is to create higher paying skilled wage jobs in Scottsdale, and most importantly to improve the safety, accountability and standard of professionalism in Arizona’s assisted living group home industry through working with non-profits such as PASRS.

The express goal of Oakmont Assisted Living is to stake and hold a claim to be the premier luxury assisted living group home of the Scottsdale area, emphasizing the latest memory care philosophies such as consistent cognitive stimulation and learning, as well as encouraging a sense of self-reliance amongst residents who rely on assistance.
