Assisted Living Reviews for The Woodlands at Furman

January 28, 2015


I am a friend or relative of resident

My mother has been a resident at the Woodlands on three separate occasions for short term rehab. The experience we encountered this time was horrendous. She was a patient there for 12 days and all of these incidences happened during this stay. Medications were not dispensed correctly, and in 1 instance not at all. She developed a bed sore while there and it was not called to my attention. Some members of the CNA staff members were down right rude and were told that they were not to come back in her room if they could not be nice to her. Test results were not revealed to me about a problem with her platelet count. Mom has congestive heart failure and was allowed to gain 2.8 lbs overnight but nothing was done. I called attention to her weight gain to the nurse on duty about the swelling in her legs. Nothing was done that day and had to call it to the attention of a different nurse again the next day where she finally received medical attention. She was allowed to wet the bed (3) times while waiting on assistance. Her platelet count dropped from 225 to 107 within a week and nothing was mentioned to me about a problem. Needless to say I am not happy with her treatment she received. She was allowed to get so weak that she literally could not raise her arms or legs or talk properly. At that point I had her transferred back to the hospital for treatment. This information was relayed to the Executive Director, Director of nursing, and other staff members. Hopefully something will be done to correct the numerous problems the Woodlands have.
Provider Response

We take the health, well-being and safety of all our residents at The Woodlands very seriously. We are listening and concerned that there were communication gaps during this stressful time. We learned a great deal from this situation, and we will continue to have structured communication protocols in place to address resident and family issues as they arise. Due to the privacy act and HIPAA regulations, we cannot go into greater detail online, but I would request that you contact our health care administrator, Carol Babbitt, at your convenience to discuss matters further. Thank you.

My mother was at The Woodlands at Furman. She was there for rehab. The actual facility seemed to be a little understaffed because it seemed like it would take a while to get somebody if you try to buzz for someone. The food was institution food. It was all right, though. My mother never went to the dining room. She took all her meals in her room. The staff was nice and helpful, but like I said, they were understaffed. The rooms were very nice though.

I liked Woodlands. It was much more expensive than the other places and the assisted living area was small. I didn’t like the painting of the rooms in the hallways which was a very pale blue. It gave it a very depressing look and it wasn’t a very cheery looking place. The facilities that they have for the assisted living section are fine. The food looks good but I didn’t eat there. They have activities and they had a schedule. The staff was very nice and she introduced me to some staff members. They were friendly and professional.

Even though this was our first experience with having to put a loved one in a assisted living facility, we all agree that everyone in our family has been scared emotionally forever. The advanced care facility for memory care is HORRIBLE. The treatment of the staff to the patients and the family boarders on abusive! It is very expensive and decorated well but it is unfortunate that the flowers in the gardens get more attention then your loved one. Most nights it is hard to sleep, as we wonder if she is all right. My advice to all is just becauce a facility charges over $200. a day and the facility looks pretty do NOT assume that your loved one will be well cared for. Look at every possible assisted living space. Take your time and educate yourself.

Thank you for taking time to share your concerns. It has been and always will be top priority to provide the best care to our residents. We believe strongly in open communication and an open door policy when it comes to questions and concerns from our residents and their families and loved ones.

We couldn't agree more with your advice. Anyone searching for a community should consider many important factors when considering a move to a community, such as the quality of care, staffing levels, meal choices and variety of activities, plus the overall feel you get when you walk into a community. Since senior living communities are highly regulated by the state, a good place to start when comparing care and services is by reviewing annual state surveys.

If you'd like to discuss your concerns further, please call me as we're committed to being the community of choice for the Upstate.

I visited this facility many times over the course of a few years while my grandmother stayed there. Above all the word I can use to describe it is quality. It is funny thinkIng back but I remember my grandmother would talk so much about how she enjoyed the food. I finally had a chance to experience it myself one day when she shared her meal with me as we watched cartoons. Even though I was a child I remember distinctly how kind the staff was to my grandmother. The most impressive thing to me was how beautiful the buildings were and the upkeep of the grounds. The first time we went to visit my father couldn't stop talking about how great the landscaping was. I think that contributes a lot to the overall feeling radiated by the facility. It may be the nostalgia looking back and remembering my grandmother but he genuinely seems so happy. Everytime we went to visit I just remember smiles and laughter. It means a lot to me that they were able to help furnish such fond memories.

My mother has been a resident at the Woodlands for several years now. Last year she transitioned from assisted care to memory care. It was a relatively easy transition and I was glad to have the opportunity to increase her level of care without moving to another facility.

I visited this facility

We visited The Woodlands several times before my friend made up her mind that's where she wanted to go. I like the way it was very upbeat. It was very lively and very active. The place was beautiful. What I really like was their attitude with keeping everything very vibrant. The activities were just great and all the things they did just really, really nice. The people that are there seemed to be very happy with everything. It just felt like this is a great place because everybody was doing something. It wasn't like an old folk's home. There were lots of going on. The other thing that really impressed us was the quality of the food. It was absolutely outstanding. Those two things really what sold her on that place. With regards to activities, they have the general run of the mill things, but in addition to that, they provide a lot of outside entertainment. For instance, they had a Kentucky Derby Day. Just recently we went to a dance they had there with live music and lots of food. The rooms were all very good size. My friend has a large living room with a dining area. It has a very nice kitchen fully appointed. She has laundry room and one bathroom. She can have it painted any colors that you want. It looks out on a garden. It is very nice. I would definitely recommend this.

My husband and I will be moving to The Woodlands at Furman. We chose the facility because it is a full continuum of care facility. Everything is connected indoors. We liked the layout of the place. They have many different layouts of apartment to choose from. They offer complete services.
