Assisted Living Reviews for Woodlands Creek

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

My parents were residents at Silver Crest Assisted Living facility until it was determined that my father required a higher level of care. This place is “top-notch” on all accounts. Director of health services (Kevin) is the best, and nursing staff is excellent. CNA’s are caring and lovingly provide for needs of daily living. Plenty of well planned activities, Apartments are specious, housekeeping/laundry is provided and there is a beauty shop on site. The facility and campus are beautiful! I can’t say enough good things about Silver Crest. Do check them out!

Most of the staff were wonderful to my mother. It must be a very difficult job (memory care unit). I really appreciate their patience and caring.

We visited Woodlands Creek. It was beautiful and very clean. We were led by the coordinator, and she showed us all around. The people we met in the hallways and such were very cordial. The residents seemed really happy. We did talk to a man who lived there, and he encouraged us to consider it. The dining area at Woodlands was a big open space with many tables. While we sitting there in the morning, we saw them setting up for lunch, and it looked like the people working for them were doing a good job.

Caring is the predominate characteristic that we experienced during the 2 years my mother was a resident at Woodlands Creek. This caring philosophy was obvious in the interactions my mother and my family had with all the staff members regardless of their department: nursing, dietary, activities, housekeeping, administration, maintenance. We experienced this care in both Independent living and Assisted Living. In the last few months of my mother's life, the Woodlands Creek staff worked collaboratively with the hospice staff from an outside agency to keep my mother comfortable and ensure that she had a peaceful death. Our journey through my mother's time at Woodlands Creek was easier because of a knowledgeable, professional, and caring staff. They put the resident and family first.

We visited several homes prior to picking Woodlands Creek. The facility is excellent. The staff is first rate! My mother was there for five years and we have zero complains. It is a five star facility.

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.
Provider Response

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.

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 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.
