Assisted Living Reviews for Wood Glen Hall

June 11, 2013

By Caring2078

I visited this facility

Wood Glen Hall looks very nice to me. It seems quite comfortable to me. It's quite elegant. They have good food. There's more freedom and independence there. They have separate units, it's very nice. They have transportation and so forth. They're not as expensive as the others. The staff, the lady there, I think she's a registered nurse, is just fantastic. I had a very good experience with Wood Glen Hall.

Questions about Wood Glen Hall

Describe the overall population of assisted living residents at Wood Glen Hall. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?

The average age is 88 years old. They love our 1/4 mile walking path that surrounds the facility. We have wonderful gardens and trees and a fantastic mountain view. We have three beautiful courtyards and a patio where they can relax and look at our expansive lawn and mountain view. They also love having lots of common rooms where they can get together and chit chat. We have two game rooms, a library, a room that has comfortable chairs and a fireplace so residents can get together and watch something on television or just read a book or talk with a friend.

What programs or activities does Wood Glen Hall offer to enrich residents' well-being?

We start every day of the week with a coffee social in our game room. The residents gather and have coffee and treats and plan the course of their day. They then enjoy an exercise class such as chair yoga, chair tai chi and joyous movement. We also have a Physical Therapist that does a balance class each month in our library. He also comes to Wood Glen when someone needs a little tune up. We have a Resident Council meeting monthly. We have lots of live entertainment and great films. We have a painting class and we have therapy animals come in. We have something going on from 10:00 until 7:30 seven days a week.

What places are near Wood Glen Hall or within walking distance for assisted living residents to enjoy?

We have a couple of residents who can walk to CVS. Our driver drives the residents to CVS every week so they can get the items they need.

What transportation services does Wood Glen Hall offer to assisted living residents?

We have transportation on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 to 4:00. He drives the residents to their doctor's appointments or to the bank etc...

What makes the chef or dining program at Wood Glen Hall exceptional? What kind of menu can assisted living residents expect?

The last cook was here for 50 years and our present cook has been here for 15 years. We spend a lot of money on getting very good quality food. We have a fresh fruit salad or a fresh green salad everyday. We have a large variety of homemade cookies and homemade desserts, including cream puffs, eclairs, carrot cakes, almond squares, strawberry mousse, banana cream pie, chocolate cream pie, coconut cream pie and more. We do pork tenderloin with baked apples and red cabbage, chicken caccitore, roast beef and mashed potatoes with gravy and green peas, we do a a traditional lasagna with fresh zucchini, Shrimp Alfredo with fresh broccoli, flank steak with roasted potatoes and green beans, honey rosemary chicken with orzo and mixed veggies. We post our menus and if anyone does not want to have what we are serving at that meal they can us our option menu.

What safety features or security measures does Wood Glen Hall offer to assisted living residents?

We have a pendant with a GPS tracker in it so that if someone pushes it the Certified Nurses Aide will receive that on their pager and know exactly where that person is. We have a full time RN on duty from Monday through Friday and she is accessible on the weekend should someone need her. Our exit doors are alarmed. We are in a beautiful residential area called Mission Canyon. We don't have much turnover in staff and I hear all the time how wonderful and caring the staff is.

How does Wood Glen Hall keep residents' families informed about their loved ones?

The nurse will call a resident's family if there is something she needs to tell them. Our activity director sends out emails to keep the families informed as well.

What is the care staff-to-resident ratio at Wood Glen Hall during daytime and nighttime hours?

We have two people in the morning that help with showering and dressing and passing medications. We have one person in the evening that helps a few of our residents get ready for bed and dispenses their evening medications to them. We have one person at night that will respond if a resident pushes their pendant or pull cord by the bed and in the bathroom. Our residents are pretty independent but if things were to change we would change with that and put on another person.

If Wood Glen Hall accepts dogs or cats, what indoor/outdoor areas can they enjoy?

We do accept a dog or cat that is no more than 15 pounds. The animal has to be friendly to be here because we don't want our staff to be bitten or scratched. We would have an outdoor area for them.

What ongoing senior care training does the staff receive?

They start with 40 hours minimal for initial training then it goes to 30 hours each year. They shadow for about two weeks before they are ready to do the job.

What safety features or security measures does Wood Glen Hall provide to protect residents who wander?

We do not take anyone in with a dementia diagnosis.
