Walnut Woods was nice and clean. We ate lunch with the residents, and the food was good. The place had a happy atmosphere. The grounds and the location were all good.

Walnut Woods looked fine. It didn’t have the old-fashioned nursing home look. They’re all apartments there. Most of it is in-house food, and there are restaurants outside that are within 10 blocks. If you want any culture at Walnut Woods, you have to travel.

My first contact with the Sales Agent - Crystal, I stated that Walnut Woods was a nice community but it was our 2nd choice. Our family always preferred my parents to be close to one of my brothers. Crystal was pushy from the start, she called my Step father and my brothers and lied to my brothers telling them my step father wanted to move to Walnut Woods. He made no such declaration. Next, after she visited my parents in the rehab they were in, she sent a vehicle to pick them up and take them to Walnut Woods. While there, on a Friday, my parents were told that the $4000 community fee would be waived but, they had to decide by Monday. In the prior weeks I had been communicating with Crystal, no mention was made of the "discount". Since my parents aren't able to drive, there was no one in the family who could drop their commitments to take them to the other location on a moments notice. Financially, my parents can't afford to not take advantage of a $4000 discount, but they still wanted to be able to see the community that would've kept them closer to family. The benefits of Chestnut Knoll was also pushed on my parents for the memory care that may be needed down the road. The only problem is my parents weren't told how expensive it is. End of the story - Walnut Woods was our family's 2nd choice, our family wanted to remain close. When a $4000 discount is pushed on seniors with a 2 day deadline, my parents lost their ability to choose. They never even had the chance to see any other places.

They bring in a lot of musicians, dancers, and that type of thing at Walnut Woods, so my mom enjoys going to those. She goes to Bingo a few times, and then they actually opened up a little retail store in the place, and my mom is working in there. She was in retail back in her working days, she enjoys the people, and it gives her something to do two days a week. It’s within the facility, so she doesn’t have to travel. She has a studio, so she has one of the smaller rooms, but for her, it’s great. She doesn’t need a lot of space. For her, the key part was the bathroom. She also has a handicapped-friendly shower that she really likes and has a seat in it, and she can just get around her place very easily. It’s small, so she doesn’t have to walk very far within her place to get to either her refrigerator or into the bathroom. And the other key part for her was she wanted it to be closer to the cafeteria, so she doesn’t have to walk that far to get there, and it met all her criteria.

We visited Walnut Woods. It’s a place where you could get a good apartment, three square meals, and do some activities together. The salesperson was good, and he followed us up. He was not pushy, but thoughtful.

Walnut Woods of Boyertown was a really nice, wonderful, and clean facility, and I really enjoyed it. The staff was very helpful, very friendly, and courteous. It was just a great place to be. The dining area was nice. The only thing that they need to improve on is having somebody that speaks Spanish. The activities are great, and there's plenty of stuff to do.

Walnut Woods was a really nice place with nice rooms. We had lunch there, but none of us liked it. They showed us a nice and clean unoccupied apartment.

We visited Walnut Woods. It's a very friendly and beautiful place. It?s really everything I wanted. There are community rooms. It's very home-like to me. Another thing that really impressed me was the food. It was wonderful, and I like the fact that it was served, not buffet type. Living in that facility is like you are in a resort. The apartments are lovely. They even have a chair outside the door and a table.

I went to Walnut Woods, but this was retirement. It wasn't really assisted living. It was very nice, and I didn't think the price was that bad, but like I said, it was strictly retirement living. They had a lot of things that they did. I know they took them to places, and when I have been out on shopping and stuff, I have seen their van pull up to places like malls, so they do schedule trips. The rooms weren't bad. They may be a little smaller than an apartment that you might go into on your own, but I guess for what they are there for, those were OK.

We liked Walnut Woods; it’s very clean and very welcoming. The staff was very helpful. My mom loved it. She was interested in a studio, which is a perfect size for her. There was plenty of room, it was very comfortable looking, and it had everything she need. We did eat in the dining room, we ate lunch, and there was plenty of food and a large selection. I think we had six or seven things to choose from, and you’re waited on; it was very nice. They have Bingo, arts and crafts, and movies. There have a calendar, and there was something on it everyday.

The staff at Walnut Woods was very nice. They treated us to lunch and they were very accommodating. The food was very good. The menu was very good, and there was quite a number of selections. The dining room was nicely appointed. The rooms were pretty nice, very modern, clean, and carpeted. It wasn’t large, but that’s OK. They seemed to have quite a lot of activities.

I found a place, but I am not there yet. I liked what I saw when I visited Walnut Woods. It is in independent living, and I will be getting a one-bedroom apartment with a bathroom, living room, kitchen, and bedroom. There are a lot of activities and things to do. There are events, holiday celebrations, snacks, and good meals.

I liked the activitiy ideas at Walnut Woods, and the things that people could do to know one another. I liked everything about it. It looked a lot fancier than I expected a place liked that to be. The staff was very nice. They had a dining room that looked like a ballroom, and they had a kitchen where if I wanted to cook food, I could. However, there's not much grounds, but it was beautiful.

We were able to see a couple of apartments at Walnut Woods and they were very nice. They had sitting rooms and laundry rooms on each floor, which also were very, very nice. The staff was very friendly and very nice. In fact, they were coming to our home and brought us a little gift from Walnut Woods. It was very surprising. Everybody was very nice. We were offered a meal but we didn't stay that day; however, the dining room had a very nice set-up. The place looked well cared for both inside and out. There was a feature that they had that I thought was very, very nice: If you're travelling and you're going into town, you can stay overnight as a guest in the place. That's very impressive.

Walnut Woods was too far out in the country for my mother. The impression was that it was one of the older homes that we visited. I thought it had the best arrangements for refrigerators because it had them lifted up sitting on top of a cabinet instead of having to bend down to the floor to get something out of it. The people were very nice, they were very knowledgeable. They were having a veterans program that day to honor the veterans living in their facility and it was a very nice visit.

I went to Walnut Woods and it was wonderful. They had an excellent chef and they served three meals in a day. They also had games for seniors and the residents were nice too. The only drawback was that they did not have a full kitchen. I would recommend this place to others.
