I reside at W oodbury mews assisted living for five years. My aide shmeka Williams and nurse Tanisha cross have been caring for me since my arrival. They are very attentive to my needs and I am grateful every day to them.

My mom is currently living at Woodbury Mews now. I like how clean it is, and the residents are taken good care of in their apartments. I haven't tried their food, but it smells good. The room is a nice size. I like that. There's a nice big bathroom in there, too. The staff is good and helpful. My mom doesn't participate much in activities. She is still trying to get used to things there. The place is always clean. I think it's too expensive, but that's just how it is. It is good though.

Provider Response

The person who gave the tour at Woodbury Mews was friendly and knowledgeable. She showed me two different styles of two-bedroom apartments in the facility and explained the differences in services and pricing. They have some additional acreage on the property. So, you have the opportunity to walk around plus their property fronts up onto some kind of lake or stream that runs through the town. I saw their activity schedule for a week and they have activities on site as well as trips outside.

I liked the atmosphere at Woodbury Mews. The staff, Jean, was excellent, very friendly, and helpful. The apartment they showed me was perfect for a senior. It was just a studio but it would have been the perfect setting for my mom. The place was brand new and clean. They had music, bingo, a bar, and everything anyone would want. I liked the surroundings and the grounds. The whole place looked elegant.

Our second favorite place was Woodbury Mews. They have independent living. At the time we looked at that we were looking for independent. It's really nice. We never actually got into the assisted side, but that facility is very good, too. It's a great community. It's older, but they've just had all new buildings. The staff is great. We knew some people that were actually in there and were doing well. They were at a different level of care. I personally knew the manager; she was a friend of my sister years ago. We always felt welcome. They are a lot less expensive, but it's a very nice place. The staff members are awesome too; very caring, very helpful. Even during COVID, they went out of their way to help us.

Woodbury Mews is a very nice community, well-organized, well-kept, and clean. It wasn't quite for me, because the people there were older than me. They gave me a couple of night's free, the apartment was nice, they allowed me to have my dog, and I liked that everything was convenient. The laundry room was right down the hall, you either eat in the cafeteria, which has more variety, or you can take it out back to your room. The only thing I didn't like was that the keys to the front door were broken, and they never replaced them. I stayed there from Thursday to Monday, the key broke on a Friday, they told me they're going to replace the key, but they never did, and it put me off. The food when you dined in tasted much better than when you would take it out. Also, it took a long time to get my deposit back.

Thanks God my mom is not longer living in this place. Assisted Living Staff shows total lack of compassion. Obviously they don't have the sensitivity needed to take care of seniors. My dog has had better treatment from the doggy daycare! They give the most minimal amount of care. They don't follow up with family. Staff gives you dirty looks when you ask them questions. Take your loved ones elsewhere!! Recommendation to ownership... Clean house! Bring in caring staff. Train them on how to deal with confused old people. Oh and how about the nasty food that is served! How about getting some real food for these people! What a disgrace!

Provider Response

I am sorry to see your frustration. Please reach out to our Executive Director to discuss your mother’s care plan in greater detail. I am surprised to see such a poor review as we typically receive such high marks. Our residents well-being is our number one priority as well as our dedication to 100% satisfaction.

Woodbury Mews is absolutely gorgeous, but it was more like an institution. It was three levels, and the view they had from the room that was available was horrible because it just looks out on buildings. They have tons of stuff going on all the time. The place was beautiful and the rooms were pretty and bigger, but I didn't see people congregating or talking to one another.

Provider Response

Thank you for sharing your experience with an online review, I’m glad you found the appearance of our community inviting. Our standards are to present a welcoming, friendly, positive place to live, work and visit. If we can tempt you to visit again, I’d be happy to introduce you to a few clubs, groups and ongoing programs. A return visit and getting to know a few residents really illustrates how a large community can feel smaller and more like home. Best of luck in your search and thanks again for visiting. Sincerely, Annette Simmons, Executive Director

For the past year, the food has been mediocore at best. The place is clean but the housekeeper until about 6 months ago was poor but new cleaning lady is great! But we have had an ant problem all summer which maintenance still has not seemed to conquer. Finally the ground floor flooding which has been for several months where you can not use the back door for easy access to elevator with heavy groceries/parcels , smoking & additional parking. Plus the beauty salon had to be moved to the assisted living building where access is more inconvenient for those with mobility issues if you have a wheel chair or walker. Times are limited too. Upper management not to helpful but other staff members very nice especially in dining room. Rooms are pretty good.

Woodbury Mews had progressive care in a lovely building. They took a historical building in the area and retrofitted that to be the independent living quarters and built two new spaces for the assisted living and memory care. It's within walking distance of a traditional downtown street and numerous churches, which is important to the seniors. They do a lot of bus trips and activities. It's a place we're very confident in. The care is very good, and the place is clean. The staff is very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. The price is pretty reasonable.

Provider Response

Thank you! I will share this comment with our caring, friendly team and thank them for the difference they make every day. We love what we do and I’m so glad it shows. Sincerely, Annette Simmons, Executive Director

Everybody is very friendly at Woodbury Mews. They have many services. They take you shopping, they take you on trips, they have first run movies, and they have entertainment. Everything is fine except there's a railroad train that runs right in front of the building. It's a nice location and there are a lot of places to go and do things. I go to a church that is two blocks away, so that's not a problem. Their food is delicious. They serve three meals a day. The breakfast is eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, and hotcakes. They have veal parm at night, chicken parm, and all kinds of seafood. I've eaten there about four times already because a lady that I go to church with plays the piano there twice a month for the seniors. I've been there four or five times and have eaten there. The food is delicious. I haven't seen anything negative in the place. The facility is excellent.

Provider Response

Thanks for the high marks. We’re committed to creating an extraordinary community where people thrive and an excellent value for the lifestyle our residents enjoy. I’m glad you had a positive experience when you visited and I hope we see you again soon. Sincerely, Annette Simmons, Executive Director

I am so thankful for nurses and the aids at the Mews. They go above and beyond . Kim schedules trips for them and even comes in on her days off. She finds cute activites and does them with the patients woth the help of Sarah. They make sure the unit is cute and decorated for every holiday. The aids are wonderful with the residents and i know they get great nursing care. Im happy my grandmom gets to call this place home and it guves me comfort knowing she is well cared for.

Provider Response

What I liked about Woodbury Mews was that they were renovating a lot of the one-bedrooms and studios, so that were all new, which was nice. However, the rooms were very small. We talked to one lady who was really nice, but my parents decided not to go there because a lot of residents were sitting in wheelchairs or chairs. They were just parked out and about in the main areas, which really turned my mother off. There wasn't a lot of movement nor seemed to be a lot of interaction between the people working and the people living there. There were also a lot of people that didn't look too healthy.

Provider Response

Thank you for visiting our community and sharing your impressions. The renovations have been very popular, and there are more coming! We have a lot of friendly folks who live, work and thrive here. As for residents in the living rooms and common areas, we encourage everyone, no matter how young or old, mobile or otherwise, to gather together and chat or simply sit quietly enjoying each other’s company. I’d like to invite you back to visit when we have a couple of classes, club meetings or programs taking place so you can see or even participate if you’d like. Best of luck on your search and finding the place that’s just right for your Mom. Sincerely, Michael Lando, Executive Director

I recently toured Woodbury with Oliver and Rita we were warmly welcomed and compassionately shown the Memory Care community. My Father had to move in quickly and they accommodated that. The month to month lease is exactly what I was looking for, I wanted to see if my father liked the place before I committed to having him stay long term. He loves Woodbury and we have found a home for him.

My mother has been at Woodbury Mews for two and a half months now. I like it. I had a tour, and I was impressed with this facility. It is recommended first by the nurse practitioner that is caring for my mom at home. My mom has her own furniture in her apartment, which is good. It is more like home. It has a refrigerator, a bath, and plenty of closet space. It is well-lit and modern. It also has hardwood floors. There are plenty of activities, and that's one of the benefits. It is one of the good points of this place. The staff is very good. The nurses, the people that take care of my mom, and the activity people are all good. The facility is clean. It is fairly modern.

We visited Woodbury Mews. The staff seemed very nice and friendly. It seemed like a pleasant place to be. The only issue we had was that it seemed like there were some maintenance issues. We went there on a really warm day, and the air-conditioning was not working well. There were some places that seemed very uncomfortable, and my impression, from what the person that gave us the tour said, was that this was not uncommon. They should improve their maintenance. However, the rooms seemed fine. We went there on a Sunday so a lot of people were at church, but there seemed to be a lot going on.

I didn't like Woodbury Mews at all. It looked more like a nursing home than an assisted living facility. It was very hospital-like to me. The rooms were not warm at all. I also felt like the people were not attended to enough. Overall, the facility was in a nice location, and the view was nice, but I just didn't like the facility at all.

We chose Woodbury because we thought it was in our price range. Mom is in a private room and it's a very nice room. The staff is also nice. They have bingo and movies. They also provide transportation to the different stores in the area. They have a library room with computers. They have a nice and big sitting room and they have a beautiful area to walk around with a pond. Generally the facility is nice, but there were some problems that were not being tended to. One is, the food is horrible and that was our main concern. Mom does not like the food and as a result she spends more money that what we have anticipated as she buys her own food. They were not able to follow the things that they said when we first moved in. We would like to believe that there was a special diet for diabetics and that was not true. They have diabetic food, but it's the same thing consistently. I don't think that they accommodate well the needs of the elderly that they are housing. They also said that they would have a welcome committee that would tend to making her comfortable for the first two weeks and that never happened. I would not recommend this facility to someone who needs a special diabetic diet.

My aunt has been a resident of Woodbury Mews for just over a year. Every time we visit, the staff is warm, welcoming and happy. More importantly, my aunt is happy!! She is always smiling. She is always clean and very well put together. The staff is knowledgeable and caring. I would highly recommend Woodbury Mews!

I'm very surprised to read the negative reviews of Woodbury Mews, but I guess that goes with the saying that you always hear when someone has a bad experience but rarely when they have a good one. I am not usually one to write reviews, but I felt I had to for Woodbury Mews. My Mom lived here for 6 years. She started in the independent living (which she loved) and moved over to the assisted living (which she was resistant too at first but really grew to love as well). I can't say enough for how at home the staff made her feel each day. Now even though no place will ever be as good as "home" they really do try to be the next best thing. I have never had an issue that I could not get resolved. Mom made a lot of great friends there and she became very close to many of the nurses aides and staff member. Overall I can say that I would recommend this community to anyone who would ask me. Don't believe the negative comments, or at least take the time to get the facts and go see the Mews first.

This community is TOP NOTCH!! My aunt lives here and just loves how warm and friendly the staff are to her. Whenever we visit her she is never around because she is so busy doing many activities and has even gained weight because the food is so good. It's like living in a fancy hotel. Thanks!

I seen that myself i stood up d spoke on behalf of aproximatelly 15 who came too me and asked too speak on there behalf.That was a mistake i could see i was getting no ware.By the time he meeting was comig too and end.Kim spoke out loud by saying that is it there will be no changes and thats it.Th mews has so many problems starting with the entrace fee i paid $6000.00 2345.00 1000 for my dog and 3000.00 community fee when i asked what it was for i was told it goes into he building multiply 3000.00 x over 300 people what do you have a big chunk of change.i ask those who are up on things how is it that there are four doctors who are in charge of the mews how come there isn't a nurse on staff or a doctor common sense isn't here because if your sick you have too ride a bus to the doctor,i feel strong about this because i am a vietnam veteran wih various problems,do they care no when your here tyou get no respect whether yur a veteran or not.The mews needs too get out there and see what others offer.I will die inmy tracts before i ever go there again.If your rich you become poor

All false advertising. This facility is quite the opposite of what is described. Food is horrendous...majority of the residents complain but nothing is ever done. No one considers the thoughts or suggestions of the residents, there is no compromise...EVER. All is not what it seems. Someone should go in undercover. Poor management...beware.

MY mother is a Resident at Woodbury News. The staff is always helpful. Maintenance is getting better. The new maintenance man Jake is great! What ever Michael can't fix Jake can. I find that the housekeeping director and food director are always out back smoking when I come to visit. Someone should look into that. As for the rest of the staff I love having my mother there. She is happy there and has allot of friends.

My review is of their dementia unit which is a whole other story. If u have dementia u are not allowed to display symptoms of it or u are not appropriate. They are constantly short handed and can't seem to keep a steady staff. They seem to over medicate most of the residents to the point they become more of a fall risk then they already are. If u hold them to task for care of your loved one they do everything they can to evict u, including taking u to court. This is a business to them don't be fooled by the smoke and mirrors. When it comes down to it its your money that matters not what is best for your loved one. I was told today by a representative of the state who was assigned to assist us with our mother that she will no longer recommend this place either due to the lack of cooperation and the unethical behaviors of the facility ..such as the director nursing of this facility putting personal comments on facebook. If you value your loved one do not consider woodbury mewss...BEWARE!!

Overall the place was great. I would come and spend the weekends every so often and the staff was very friendly and compassionate. They developed personal relationships with the residents to make them feel welcome and at home. Especially my grandmother, boy was she outspoken. The facilities were clean all the time. It was quiet, as you would expect of a retirement home. They have an independent living building and an assisted living building, my grandmother stayed in the former. They have on an on site barber shop, which is great to help the residents not have to leave as often as possible. Parking for residents and guests that was easy to get to, even handicap spaces. The only thing I was concerned about was my grandmother falling, she had the tenancy to loose balance a lot, which was not enough alone to put her in the assisted living building. In the independent living building the employees were not allowed to make physical contact with the residents. A life line button solved that problem for us. They had AC and Heating units, internet access, it was like an apartment where every day they served meals, and friendly staff was able to help 24/7. All in all, this is a great place to stay if you are considering an assisted living community.

I visited this facility

As a delivery driver for Rite Aid pharmacy, I visit alot of elderly and home bound seniors. Most of the seniors live in independent or assisted living buildings. Often times i feel really sad for the living conditions that the seniors are placed in. Not the case with the Woodbury Mews though. They have two seperate buildings one for independent and the other for assisted living. the first thing i noticed about the place was its clean and modern decor. It has nice and warm color themes with crown molding and arm rails along the hallways. There is a really cool digital photo that displays every seniors picture in the building. Staff is very nice to visitors and seniors. They have and handyman on staff named Mike and can fix/solve any problem the seniors might have. The kicthen is very nice and comfortable, with the staff serving and busing tables almost like a restaurant. Mews independent living has a hair salon, pool room. movie room and exercise classes. Its a really nice place to be if you are a senior that has to go to senior living.
