The staff at Woodlands Creek were absolutely amazing. They took wonderful care of our dad and we are so grateful for the way they took him in as family. They worked with us throughout dad's time there so well . A+.

Our Dear Mother, Marcella, was a resident at this facility for 4 years. We moved her from WI to IA and it was a difficult move. The friends/family she met at Woodlands Creek made it an extremely easy move for her. She loved the staff as well as the food and activities at this facility. Our family will never forget this beautiful facility and the employees that were always there for her. My family highly recommends it.

Woodlands Creek is very new, very nice, and very elegant. The rooms were nice. They have good dining facilities, underground parking. They have an assisted living facility attached to it, which is nice. It was all very good.

Woodlands Creek was a very nice place, but it wasn’t in the right location for us, and it was expensive. We liked the rooms. They have a lot of activities and continued to send us invitations for different things they have going on.

It's a wonderful place to live. We live in the Independent living and we can be as busy as we want. Bible Study, Bridge, Games of all kinds. Our own Nurse Mary. .A Wonderful Chef and staff with great servers, some one commented that it was just like going on a cruse and I believe that's about what you feel like... A marvelous staff that makes you feel like they would do anything you wanted them to... Never have a feeling that we aren't secure with 24 hour security people on duty. What more can I say. We are so happy we made this move 3+ years ago...

Woodlands Creek is affordable, mom has a friend there, and she is more familiar with it. They accept pets. The staff was fine. Everyone looked very nice. The activities were similar as the other places. She wanted to be closer to where the activities are.

I visited this facility

Woodlands Creek was the best that I found in the area. I liked the environment. The rooms were good. They had a lot of activities in the afternoon, and they had bridge there almost every day. The dining area was like a ski lodge in Colorado. It had big wooden beams. It was large and airy. The furniture were very good. One of the rooms that I looked at, which she called the deluxe, was very light, very airy, and it was probably the nicest one I had been in. The only thing that would rate it down was that their program was an a la carte system. Their services went by points. If you needed assistance in laying out your medicines, that's 2 points. If you needed help in the shower, it's 10 points. Their meal was also a point system. Breakfast was 5 points, supper was 5 points, and dinner was 10 points. With your monthly rent, you would be given 310, which would mean 10 a day. They were cumulative within the month; if you don't use you points within the month, you couldn't carry them over.

I like the staff at Woodlands Creek. They seem very nice and really care about the residents. They go above and beyond what is required of them. The rooms are big, clean, and nice. I ate there once, and they have very good food. My mother participates usually about twice a day in activities. I am very satisfied with what they provide.

I visited this facility

I like the programs that Silvercrest At Woodlands Creek offers. I also like the way the facility was setup. I took the tour and they were very good about answering my questions. I like their rooms. Most of them seemed light and airy. One thing I also like is that you can either eat your breakfast downstairs or you can eat it in your room. They gave me their current monthly newsletter where activities are being included in. They also have a shuttle that on certain days would take you to one of the grocery stores in the area.
