Lisa L.The staff at Woodholme Gardens are very accommodating and have supplied meticulous medical information regarding our relative. The facility is nicely kept inside. We are grateful for their continuing care of our family member. Kudos!!
Allison B.My mom moved to WHG in March, having lived at another memory care home that was not a place I would recommend. WHG has been so so good for my mom. She is more engaged and alive! She's gained weight (which she desperately needed to do) , is more... engaged when I see her, and moves about the facility with ease. The activities staff are great! and the nursing staff are really good about communicating about any health changes/needs. Her room is also lovely and kept clean. In large part, any issues/concerns I've raised have been responded to in a timely manner and addressed. Last and importantly - the staff are friendly and kind and work well with my mom!read more
Brian KMy mother has been at Woodholme for several years. There have been some issues that I have brought to their attention and were dealt with quickly and to my satisfaction. It is not easy to care for so many people on an every day basis, and not have... something that can be improved upon. What I can tell you is when I walk in the front door, I am greeted by a smiling face that knows my name and my moms. The caregivers do a very hard job, but do it well. My mother is always clean, groomed, and attended to. The cooks try their best to accommodate the resident's dietary preferences. It isn't easy to satisfy everyone tastes, but they have made sure my mother has something she will like to eat. The best complement I can give, was the care my mom received during past year during the pandemic. I wasn't able to see her in person due to safety and CDC restrictions. They adhered to safety protocols and kept my mother safe and Covid free. They were the only family she had for almost a year. I could only speak to her on the phone and see her on a Facetime call. They were the ones she saw on an every day basis and who made sure she was healthy and well. She is 95, and she survived the year.Yes, I can find things that I would like done differently. But I am appreciative of what they do to help my mother and I show my gratitude with a BIG thank you to all those that contribute to her care.read more

While the staff is creating a safe and secure environment for my loved one as he adjusts to the limitations of the pandemic and a new environment; the caring staff has also been providing my... family with much needed peace of mind and comfort as well.

Brittany W.Tracey Watson, the current Director of Sales & Hospitality, is a true gem. She really made this place stand out above the rest during our search. Her kind, compassionate, and friendly demeanor lets you feel like your family member is her family... member leaving you feeling confident in their care. She went above and beyond any obligation or expectation she had toward my family and Woodholme is certainly a better place with her there.read more

The way that Mary at the desk, Psalm and Lisa have dealt with my requests and visitation requests have helped with the adjustment of my sister living there at Woodholme. ...

Karen S.My mother has been joyfully residing at WHG since 2016. While it is not always 100% I am grateful for this facility and overall pleased with the support and care.During this Covid period Lisa and Psalm are to be commended for the setup and safe... outdoor visits. Prior to covid Psalm made sure mom had and attended activities even pop up individual ones at times. Lisa has gone above and beyond to relay and help with mom's care also.Stewart has been a special gem for my family and mom especially during this Covid time. He has allowed video chats 1-3 times per week and even kept check on some of her care issues. I don't know what I would have done without him!!!Mom is on the 4th floor dementia unit and the care givers and med techs bend over backwards for my mom. However, Michelle, Olive, Elaine and Eunace treat my mom with special ❤ care and attention even when mom is uncooperative. I am soooooo grateful to many more who intermittently care for mom also but I can't list each and everyone but I will list Nikki for some of the best advice on caring for mom! Also Josephine who is no longer there was simply awesome and truly missed😪.A special thank you to the NURSING staff (Jackie & Lucky) for holding it down each and every day especially after losing Toni and Jim who were also great. Jackie has cared for my mom since she has been there and has resolved so many things that others couldn't she's a hidden Jewel.The Concierge staff is second to none. Angela, Ms. Mary, and Janine deal with my family and mom on a regular basis and always greet us with a smile even when we are being worrisome. Angela will pitch in with care anytime and for that I am grateful. Janine is so soft spoken, polite and helpful always. Ms. Mary is the captain; she runs things and is like family. I have not meet Sophia yet but she is always pleasant on the phone and relays messages in a timely fashion. Nakia is mom's other daughter and we love everything about her❣Administration Jennifer and Shawnette are spectacular too. Jennifer is the glue and does a great job with keeping us informed. Shawnee is always willing to coordinate my mom's care and keep us abreast of her needs.I could not mention everyone or this review or it would turn into a book. Thank you Woodholme for the care before Covid and definitely during Covid. Most of all thanks for keeping my loved one Covid free!!!!#livefullylovefullyread more
