I visited this facility
I liked Woodlands. It was much more expensive than the other places and the assisted living area was small. I didn’t like the painting of the rooms in the hallways which was a very pale blue. It gave it a very depressing look and it wasn’t a very cheery looking place. The facilities that they have for the assisted living section are fine. The food looks good but I didn’t eat there. They have activities and they had a schedule. The staff was very nice and she introduced me to some staff members. They were friendly and professional.

Even though this was our first experience with having to put a loved one in a assisted living facility, we all agree that everyone in our family has been scared emotionally forever. The advanced care facility for memory care is HORRIBLE. The treatment of the staff to the patients and the family boarders on abusive! It is very expensive and decorated well but it is unfortunate that the flowers in the gardens get more attention then your loved one. Most nights it is hard to sleep, as we wonder if she is all right. My advice to all is just becauce a facility charges over $200. a day and the facility looks pretty do NOT assume that your loved one will be well cared for. Look at every possible assisted living space. Take your time and educate yourself.
Thank you for taking time to share your concerns. It has been and always will be top priority to provide the best care to our residents. We believe strongly in open communication and an open door policy when it comes to questions and concerns from our residents and their families and loved ones.
We couldn't agree more with your advice. Anyone searching for a community should consider many important factors when considering a move to a community, such as the quality of care, staffing levels, meal choices and variety of activities, plus the overall feel you get when you walk into a community. Since senior living communities are highly regulated by the state, a good place to start when comparing care and services is by reviewing annual state surveys.
If you'd like to discuss your concerns further, please call me at (864) 371-3110 as we're committed to being the community of choice for the Upstate.

I visited this facility many times over the course of a few years while my grandmother stayed there. Above all the word I can use to describe it is quality. It is funny thinkIng back but I remember my grandmother would talk so much about how she enjoyed the food. I finally had a chance to experience it myself one day when she shared her meal with me as we watched cartoons. Even though I was a child I remember distinctly how kind the staff was to my grandmother. The most impressive thing to me was how beautiful the buildings were and the upkeep of the grounds. The first time we went to visit my father couldn't stop talking about how great the landscaping was. I think that contributes a lot to the overall feeling radiated by the facility. It may be the nostalgia looking back and remembering my grandmother but he genuinely seems so happy. Everytime we went to visit I just remember smiles and laughter. It means a lot to me that they were able to help furnish such fond memories.

My mother has been a resident at the Woodlands for several years now. Last year she transitioned from assisted care to memory care. It was a relatively easy transition and I was glad to have the opportunity to increase her level of care without moving to another facility.
