I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
My mother-in-law had a stroke and we needed to put her in skilled nursing while she recovered. We moved her in Calder Woods during September 2016. Calder Woods was a total disappointment. She did not receive “skilled” nursing. There was only one nurse for all 34 patients. When my mother-in-law would buzz for help it took 30 to 45 minutes for an aide to show up and then say “oh I’ll go the nurse”-which was another 30 to 45 minute wait. One evening my husband observed the night time aide slightly unplugging the call button from the wall so it would not ring the nurse’s station at night. He plugged it back in before he left. One night my mother-in-law woke up to find two people in her room going through drawers and feeling along the top of her shelves to see if there was anything there. She remained quiet so they would not know she was watching them. She was very scared. We observed many patients in the hallways asking for help and aides walking by and not stopping. Many patients were left for hours in the dining room after the meal time was over. We saw them just sitting there by themselves and sometimes they were asking for help but no one came. The tables in the dining room are very sticky. I do not think they ever wipe them off. We tried to speak many times to the management but nothing was ever changed. These are only some of the experiences we had. There are more. We have moved my mother-in-law to another facility that does not function like Calder Woods. I would advise you to be very wary of putting a loved one in Calder Woods if they are not able to take care of themselves. There is not a caring atmosphere there. It was very disappointing since Buckner is the parent company.

Calder Woods was a larger community with everything from town houses to apartments. We met the director, who was very nice. The location, apartments, and everything were very nice.

At Calder Woods, they weren't very friendly. The manager never called us back. He showed us the facility, but I didn't like the setup. I don't like how they treated us when we went there. He made us feel uncomfortable, like we wouldn't be able to afford it. He just was not very accommodating. They had multiple doors to get to memory care, and I thought that was kind of overkill. They're like a retirement. You can buy your own little town house. They had a little nursing facility, and they have a very small memory care unit, so it's more geared to assisted living.

We went to visit the Calder Woods assisted living facility since we happened to be in the region looking at other places for our aunt. The outside grounds and landscaping had plenty of nice trees and shrubs and looked well tended and maintained. Seniors can easily enjoy the outer walk ways around the building and courtyard safely. The nicely decorated and comfortably furnished community rooms were well suited to socialize, watch movies, play games, use the computer, read and engage in arts and crafts. There are also larger rooms for gathering to have private parties and attend hosted social events. There were plenty of nice areas for quiet time as well as socializing with other residents and friends, family and other visitors. All of the communal areas were nicely designed with easy to access furniture and a comforting decor. The private rooms were all nicely decorated and personalized for the residents, with safety and security in mind. The residents are encouraged to enjoy physical activity as much as possible through walks, exercise classes such as yoga and aerobics, or using weight training and other equipment. The food we saw looked nutritious, delicious and smelled really good, too. Their menus offer a variety of healthy food options. The snacks also looked interesting and healthy with a nice mix of nutritious options. We also liked that they encourage drinking plenty of fluids for healthy hydration each day. The dining rooms included both casual and formal options. The facility is close enough to the metro area so that residents may enjoy excursions for all of the local casual and fine dining, events, art, culture, music, shopping and culture offered regularly. They are adequate medical offices nearby and they have access to the level of care they need at all times. It was clear that this facility provides understanding caregivers for the best care of its residents - all of whom appeared to be very content and enjoy their surroundings a great deal.
