Assisted Living Reviews for The Woodlands of Columbus

August 28, 2018


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

My husband is in The Woodlands of Columbus. They have been kind and accommodating. My husband is pushing the limits of the assisted living definition, but they have tried very hard to meet his needs, and keep him safe, so I have been really pleased with what they attempted to do for us. Their attitude has been very helpful. The nurses seem excellent. As for the helpers, it's mixed. Some are excellent, and some are just doing their jobs. They tend to be long-term employees, and there's not a lot of turnover, so that's a good sign. The food is pretty good. They seemed to have a well-rounded program. The place is an older facility, but it's kept up well. They paint and put a new carpet in every time a resident comes in. The activities seem to be varied and meet their needs. It's by far the best combination of services and value, so I hope very much to keep my husband here.

The Woodlands of Columbus was fine, but it didn't seem adequate for us. The rooms were too small, and the meeting area didn’t seemed inviting. The lady who showed us around wasn't told that there was supposed to be a tour, but she was accommodating, talked us through, and showed us around. We passed by the dining area, but I wasn't really impressed with it.

The Woodlands was extremely nice. The young lady who gave me the tour was extremely helpful and, in fact, gave me some additional information for the VA and a possible attorney that I might check into regarding long-term care situation. Very nice facility, and it was price more reasonably. It was also a private facility and would not be one that would handle Medicaid.

The rooms at Woodlands of Columbus were bigger, so that’s a plus. Everything was good there as well. I took a tour and talked to one of the staff members who was very knowledgeable and very nice. This one was a little more expensive, but they actually have bigger rooms. They had a bunch of stuff like Karaoke night and Bingo, and they do trips. They had their calendars full of different things they did whether it was within the community or they’d take them out somewhere, but there are a variety of things to do. Their dining room was almost like a restaurant, and it was nice.

The Woodlands of Columbus was fine, calm, and peaceful. I didn’t see a room because they didn’t have anything available. The young lady that took me around was very nice. They had a library and common areas outside including a little park and gathering place. For lunch, you can order different sandwiches. The dining room was clean and had assigned seating. Their menu was a little bit varied but not very much.

The Woodlands was very nice, and we really liked it. The lady that toured us was very knowledgeable. I felt that my grandmother would be well taken care of in there, and she had a lot of good information. The rooms and apartments were adequate and clean. I think that my grandmother would feel at home.

I think it was on a Sunday morning when we were at Woodlands. I'm sure they had activities but I don't recall seeing any. The individual that gave us the tour was the only staff person. The rooms were very nice, they were spacious enough. We walked through the dining room, there were just a couple of tables occupied at that time.

Continuing Care Retirement Community Reviews for The Woodlands of Columbus

I visited this facility

Of the places I've visited, Woodlands was probably the best one and it wasn't much more expensive. The room I looked at was very attractive and it had a nice front view. I liked the cathedral ceiling because it gave an impression it was bigger. I wasn't too crazy about the kitchen. Under the sink, it had a little curtain like thing, I didn't like that. That was very old fashioned.
