I can't imagine finding a better place than Carol Woods. It's very high quality and extremely well run. The outdoor landscaping and sidewalks are very beautifully maintained and extremely safe. It's easy for anyone with a walker or wheelchair to get around, and the paths are well lit. It has a very pleasant outdoor environment. The staff is extremely easy to reach. My mother-in-law is 86, and she's not disabled physically but she wears a cord around her neck with a button on it, so if she falls or anything, she can press the button and someone on site will come to her right away. It's one of those continuing care places where you can go in fit and healthy at 60 and stay until you die at 98. There's so much going on and a lot of programs. There's carpentry, ceramics, fitness, swimming - anything you want to do is there. It's self contained and very well maintained. The dining room is good and has a great variety of food. I can't say enough good things about it. It's wonderful. She's independent, but occasionally she'll have a medical issue, in which case they put her in special location while she needs care and then when she's able to go back to her home, she does. She has a dog in her home and when she gets sick, they make sure the dog gets taken care of and walked three times a day. It's a wonderful, educated community. It's a pricey place, so most of the people who live there have come from very educated, very successful backgrounds. They contribute quite a lot to the programming there. So, there are always interesting things to do and special speakers who are invited. Retired government officials live there.
