Assisted Living Reviews for White Oaks at McHenry

This is a very nice facility - clean, smells fresh, nicely decorated with both studio and 1 bedroom apartments. Residents are well cared for by a very attentive staff. The food is quite good and residents choose their meals from a menu in a bright and open dining room. Many services are provided including housekeeping, laundry, medication dispensing, on-site nurse, beauty shop, internet, social events, happy hour, etc.. I'd consider living here myself.

I am/was a resident of this facility

It was a very, very difficult decision for my. Mom to decide to move to an assisted living facility. She went back and forth for over a year. Heritage Woods in McHenry has been a wonderful choice for her. The staff goes above and beyond daily. They are all very kind and caring people. She is treated with dignity and respect. She is thrilled with her decision. She loves her studio apartment!!! THANK YOU Heritage Woods staff for helping mom I haven't seen her so happy in years! The family is grateful and relieved that mom is so comfortable, happy and she is where she wants to be!!!

My father-in-law is now at Heritage Woods of McHenry. The staff's work ethics are good. Their rooms are studios, and they are very nice. The best thing about this community is that it is new, so everything is very nice. I also know that the doors are locked at 8:00 p.m., so no one can come in around after that time.

All the staff there is very friendly and helpful. The main lobby gathering room is very pretty like you were walking into a nice hotel. Welcoming and warm. The individual rooms are very nice. The bathrooms are well equipped. The staff is always at the ready in the halls and in the dining hall to help. You come in to visit and there are residents playing games in the tv room or the game and craft room. My mother-in-law loves the choir that she gets to sing in. The only issue my in-laws have had is that the big meal is served at lunch time and they are used to having their big meal at 5:00. The food there is good. Heritage Woods is a place my husband and I would love to be when we are in that place in life. Am very grateful for the services and nice people who work there. Am so glad they have 24 hour assistance. The social aspect of the facility is great. My mother-in-law needs other people to talk with and play cards and again being able to sing in the choir. Their meds are monitored and it is reassuring to know Heritage staff is there for all of us. They also were very helpful with all the paperwork that needed to be submitted. Thankfully submitted. Ann

I visited this facility

The facility appeared clean, but truly smelled awful, with a hint of vanilla air freshener for added ick factor. I believe it was their carpets or upholstery for as I said the facility appeared very clean. Residents seemed happy, and they seemed to have a lot of freedom in the facility to choose activities and such.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My wife is a resident of White Oaks at McHenry. I'm happy with the location because it's only a block away from me. They're very good. They do a lot for the people. They bring in entertainment periodically every couple of weeks. They sing old time songs and they do a really nice job. They have crafts and singing. She's happy there. She dances and enjoys herself. They serve three meals a day and they have a doctor who comes in. They get her to eat food that she's never eaten before. I bring in specific things for her like canned beans and canned chili and they'll make it for her. It's a brand-new facility. It's been open for less than a year.
