We're very happy with Village Woods where my mom is. It is set on a beautiful golf course which is a beautiful setting. There are 24 hour surveillance cameras and security, excellent Christian caring environment, and more activities than I have seen at 16 other homes. There's Bingo and scenic tours where they go to different towns and they learn the history of a town, and when they come back on the bus, they provide them with ice cream or dessert, free of charge. They have three delicious, balanced home-made meals a day, they have Bunco, volleyball with a big blow up ball so they could be sitting in their transport chairs, all kinds of parties like a Fall party in the afternoon, shuffleboard, cards, Jeopardy!, church service on Sunday nights, and hymn singing on Tuesday nights. They can go to the dining room to eat. It was a Holiday Inn, so it’s a beautiful hotel setting for the dining area, it's very reasonable for guests to come in to have dinner, and there are multiple choices for dinner. It's just a very, warm caring environment, and they have a lot of socialization in the lobby and coffee and conversation in the evening. It's just a multitude of things, and there are about 4 things every day for them to do. They have live entertainment come in on Thursday afternoons, be it an organist, singers or puppet show from a church in the area, and they had someone come in and play the flute and sing. They have a swimming pool and exercise programs; all this is included in your monthly fee, and there are no extras. You have to see it to believe it. You walk in there, and you feel the warmth. Every caretaker there has a warmth about them, and you'll see them hugging the residents. They have a gift shop, it's all-volunteer, and it's wonderful. They take care of you, and they do more than just service you. What more can you ask for? In your golden years, it's such a blessing. It's amazing, and it's the best.
