    I visited this facility

    My sister-in-law is going to Mary's Woods. We chose it because of the surrounding environment, that it's a home rather than a bunch of apartments with amenities, the availability, and offering of health services was better than any we saw. We went to both independent and assisted living, but she will be living in an independent unit at the moment. We met a number of staff and they were very friendly, like they already knew her and were talking very personably. She has tasted the food, and the quality seemed fine. The quality of the maintenance and the use of the original materials was very noticeable. She has a dog, so she needs to be outdoors. The floors on which she could have outdoor access for the dogs have lovely patios, or even little 10x12 outdoor garden type patios. They were really noticeably lovely. The bus line is right at the entrance and it takes us right down to Lake Oswego itself, or to gardens or whatever. The location is in the suburbs, but it's very easily accessible to roads. They have a shuttle three times a week from Mary's Woods itself that takes people to the grocery stores and library and things like that.

    Provider Response

    Thank you for your thoughtful feedback. Your appreciation for the importance of outdoor spaces, particularly for your sister-in-law's dog, is wonderful. It's great to hear that you found our lovely patios enjoyable. We're delighted that our friendly and personable staff left a positive impression on you. Your satisfaction with the quality of our services and amenities is important to us, and we're glad it met your expectations. We look forward to welcoming your sister-in-law and her dog to our community in the near future.

    Mary's Woods still calls itself a CCRC, but we do not have skilled nursing here. We have residents' care and then it goes up to the assisted living and then independent living. If you go to the hospital and have a, let's say a hip replaced, and you need to go to rehab where the skilled nursing is, they will have to send you to another rehab center in the area. It's inconvenient, but it's okay. Right now, I'm in their independent living. Their staff is fantastic, loving, and caring. I can't say enough good things about the staff. They care about the residents. We haven't had too many activities, although they've done a lot of live streaming to keep us busy. They've put some of the exercise classes on TV, you can do them in your room and that kind of thing. They tried very hard to keep us active and entertained here during the last couple of years. Before that, we had tours and we went to plays, these were all arranged by Mary's Woods. We paid for our tickets but these were all arranged by them. I must say, they do a good job with activities. The food is very good. It's more like a restaurant eating than institutional eating, it's very good although occasionally they have a bad day too. The apartments are lovely, I'm very comfortable in mine. They have 2 exercise rooms because they just added another exercise room to the campus. In the lower part, which is the older part, we have a swimming pool. They did not put one in the newer upper part so it could be extremely crowded. Now, of course, you have to have an appointment to go to it whereas before, you could just go down and exercise at any time in the pool. They do water exercises here which are a little easier on the joints. I don't know when that will change back. I'm hoping it will. Other activities are also pretty good. They have lots of exercise classes that you can go to like Taiichi and just regular exercising like yoga. I think the most popular class is the "Keep on Moving" class, it helps you with your balance and all the things that old people have a problem with.

    Provider Response

    Thank you for sharing your experience at Mary's Woods. Your feedback on our "fantastic, loving, and caring" staff is a sentiment echoed by many residents. It's heartening to know that our community's warm atmosphere, created by both staff and residents, has made a positive impact. Thank you for being a cherished member of our Mary's Woods community.

    My mom has been here 20 years. From independent living to assisted. It has gone downhill in quality over the years. AND Now they did a rapid covid and quarantined her in a room with no phone for 24 hours still no tv 4 days later. They barely look in on her. When you want a warm drink forget it. Its like she is a leper. I don't get a Catholic place not keeping staff and having the quality care they should.

    Provider Response

    I liked everything about Mary's Woods. It's a very loving community, it's beautifully laid out, and the rooms were varied and nice. They have excellent amenities, and they're top quality. They're on the same campus as Marylhurst University, and anybody who's part of the community can register for class that's offered in the university. I enjoyed the food very much; it's top quality and excellent.

    Provider Response

    Thank you for your 5-star review! We're delighted to hear you enjoyed every aspect of Mary's Woods. We take pride in our loving community, selection of apartment homes, top-notch amenities, and quality food. We hope you visit again.

    Mary's Woods was just too big of a community for someone who's got Alzheimer's. It's great for people who are independent and don't need help. They just don't have enough assisted living and memory care for the residents that they have. They're constructing an apartment building with shops underneath it. They've got everything there. You buy in like you're buying an apartment, and then you pay rent on top of that. They have a beauty salon, a health center, and community programs. It's like living in a big senior community with a clubhouse.

    Provider Response

    We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We realize Mary’s Woods may not be the perfect fit for everyone. We continually strive to enhance our services, including assisted living and memory care options. Mary's Woods aims to provide peace of mind for seniors as care needs change. We value your insights and hope that all who seek a holistic senior living community will find a home that helps them navigate the continuum of care as their needs evolve.

    Mary's Woods was buy-in. It was a very nice facility but we didn't like the concept of buy-in. There were a lot of amenities. What attracted us is that it's right on the Marylhurst campus and if you live in Mary's Woods you're allowed to audit any of the college classes that you went to and that appealed to us a great deal. The dining area is very good. We had lunch there and it was excellent. The staff was really nice, caring, concerned and excellent.

    We found them helpful. It's close to where we are living now, and that's one reason we chose Mary’s Woods. The rooms were very nice. They had several dining rooms that had small tables, and they were attractive. They had all kinds of activities. I was impressed most with the friendliness of the people and the cleanliness and attractiveness of the place.

    Provider Response

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review and share your experience and observations. In our mission statement, two foundational principles are a commitment to an environment of beauty and a spirit of service. We are very appreciative that what you saw on our beautiful campus and among the friendly people and staff reflected these priorities. We hope to see you soon.

    We're planning to move in to Mary's Wood. We had a social group and we had about 25 people who lived there. It's continuing care, from people with independent Villas to large apartments, small apartments, assisted living and then skilled care. You wouldn't have to move anymore. It's really more of change of residency and change of lifestyle -- that's what I liked. You could walk from the property and right on to a trail that goes to the river. The grounds were very good. We knew some of the staff there. I would recommend them to others.

    Great marketing, very poor execution, very high cost. Look elsewhere unless you are a millionaire with low standards. Expect a never-ending stream of additional charges beyond what is initially disclosed. Have an attorney negotiate the residency agreement to ensure what is orally represented by marketing is actually in the written agreement. Expect to be treated as a second class resident if you are not a member of a Catholic religious order.
