Reviews of Calder Woods in Beaumont, Texas

Calder Woods is clean. I talked to this guy named Aaron, and he seemed informed about everything that was going on. He took us around and showed us the room. They are really clean, and it's all private rooms, no double rooms. They were getting ready to have lunch, and it looked like everybody was going to meet in the lunchroom. The staff, he was really good. He was a very nice young man. He told us about all of it. He's the one that showed us the room and explained it to us. It didn't seem like they were many people there unless they were in the room. There were about three that came to lunch at that time, but they're not saying that there weren't more coming. So it wasn't quite time yet for lunch, it was supposed to be at noon and this was about 11:30. The dining area is excellent. It was spotless and it was fine; it's really clean. They had a table, and it looks like they have the food right there. They don't bring the food in there. It's right there in some trays where they cook food in, some silver trays. I don't know what they're called. Those are big and I think they just dip them up in the foods that they want, or need. They have a gym, it was nice. They have that one lady, she's the one that gave the exercises. She was nice. They had a gym where you can walk on a treadmill, they got barbells and different stuff like that. I think they have bingo.

I went and visited Calder Woods. The staff was friendly. The area was attractive. The outside protected area was very nice and green, and it would be nice to sit outside. The rooms were quite nice, too. The tour guide was very accommodating. They have apartments. They have a courtyard and a room with exercise equipment in it. I also saw the dining hall area.

On a 1-10 scale, I would give Calder Woods an 8. They have anywhere from rooms, apartments, to homes; it depends on anyone you choose. The food is excellent and the staff that we ran into was good.

Being at Calder Woods is like living in a nice resort. The staff is very attentive and very compassionate about their jobs. They have a pool, a gym, a salon, and transportation. It's extremely clean too.

My friend is in Calder Woods. I have been there a number of times, I've had several family members there. It's a nice facility. Clean and well run. In independent living, they have nice almost like a condo type set-up, 1 and 2-bedroom apartments. The assisted living section is more like a nursing home but still nicer than a nursing home. They have an indoor pool, workout facility, dining room, and a library. The staff members were good. I've had numerous meals there.

Calder Woods was very pretty. A couple of the staff was very accommodating, but then it was a weekend so there wasn't really anybody to give me a tour and talk to me like I needed to be talked to. I saw the gym and the dining area which looked very nice, clean, and well-kept. The place might have been wonderful but I didn't get to see all of it.

Everything is going fine at Calder Woods. People are very welcoming and nice. It's very clean, and I don't see any problems. The apartment that Mom got is affordable. I don't have any complaints about the staff. It's a one-bedroom apartment with a bathroom and a kitchen. She gets her meals provided. There are a lot of activities. People have come by her room to welcome her. She has eaten in the dining room and likes the food. They have a beauty salon and an exercise room. They're doing some remodeling and building a wellness center and a little bistro. They have an arts and crafts center and a room where people play cards and dominos. She went to church yesterday in their chapel. Her room has a washer and dryer. It felt more like home for her.

My mother-in-law had a stroke and we needed to put her in skilled nursing while she recovered. We moved her in Calder Woods during September 2016. Calder Woods was a total disappointment. She did not receive “skilled” nursing. There was only one nurse for all 34 patients. When my mother-in-law would buzz for help it took 30 to 45 minutes for an aide to show up and then say “oh I’ll go the nurse”-which was another 30 to 45 minute wait. One evening my husband observed the night time aide slightly unplugging the call button from the wall so it would not ring the nurse’s station at night. He plugged it back in before he left. One night my mother-in-law woke up to find two people in her room going through drawers and feeling along the top of her shelves to see if there was anything there. She remained quiet so they would not know she was watching them. She was very scared. We observed many patients in the hallways asking for help and aides walking by and not stopping. Many patients were left for hours in the dining room after the meal time was over. We saw them just sitting there by themselves and sometimes they were asking for help but no one came. The tables in the dining room are very sticky. I do not think they ever wipe them off. We tried to speak many times to the management but nothing was ever changed. These are only some of the experiences we had. There are more. We have moved my mother-in-law to another facility that does not function like Calder Woods. I would advise you to be very wary of putting a loved one in Calder Woods if they are not able to take care of themselves. There is not a caring atmosphere there. It was very disappointing since Buckner is the parent company.

Calder Woods was a larger community with everything from town houses to apartments. We met the director, who was very nice. The location, apartments, and everything were very nice.

At Calder Woods, they weren't very friendly. The manager never called us back. He showed us the facility, but I didn't like the setup. I don't like how they treated us when we went there. He made us feel uncomfortable, like we wouldn't be able to afford it. He just was not very accommodating. They had multiple doors to get to memory care, and I thought that was kind of overkill. They're like a retirement. You can buy your own little town house. They had a little nursing facility, and they have a very small memory care unit, so it's more geared to assisted living.

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.
