We went to visit the Calder Woods assisted living facility since we happened to be in the region looking at other places for our aunt.
The outside grounds and landscaping had plenty of nice trees and shrubs and looked well tended and maintained. Seniors can easily enjoy the outer walk ways around the building and courtyard safely.
The nicely decorated and comfortably furnished community rooms were well suited to socialize, watch movies, play games, use the computer, read and engage in arts and crafts. There are also larger rooms for gathering to have private parties and attend hosted social events.
There were plenty of nice areas for quiet time as well as socializing with other residents and friends, family and other visitors. All of the communal areas were nicely designed with easy to access furniture and a comforting decor.
The private rooms were all nicely decorated and personalized for the residents, with safety and security in mind.
The residents are encouraged to enjoy physical activity as much as possible through walks, exercise classes such as yoga and aerobics, or using weight training and other equipment.
The food we saw looked nutritious, delicious and smelled really good, too. Their menus offer a variety of healthy food options. The snacks also looked interesting and healthy with a nice mix of nutritious options. We also liked that they encourage drinking plenty of fluids for healthy hydration each day. The dining rooms included both casual and formal options.
The facility is close enough to the metro area so that residents may enjoy excursions for all of the local casual and fine dining, events, art, culture, music, shopping and culture offered regularly.
They are adequate medical offices nearby and they have access to the level of care they need at all times.
It was clear that this facility provides understanding caregivers for the best care of its residents - all of whom appeared to be very content and enjoy their surroundings a great deal.
