IThis community is unlike any other. They offer meditation, yoga, dance classes and residents are actively engaged with each other The staff is very loving and closely connected with my Mom. No one is sitting in their rooms and the community is highly encouraging to support each resident to exercise and join group activities. My mom was hesitant at first but after a couple of weeks she has called Elder Ashram her home and has made some good friends.

Great care and work!
This place really cares about its elders. They have created a community of people, not just another assisted living. Staff is very kind. The food is delicious and hot. The engagement activities are joyous and filled with fun. The staff is trying hard to make sure all elders are happy. The moment you walk in you feel the homey environment. I have seen the positive changes this community continues to make each time I visit. Thank you so much for all you do everyday, Woodpark staff.

A great tour!
The AgeSong Woodpark was a very nice community. The facility was clean and maintained well. The tour guide that took me around was friendly and knowledgeable. It was a good experience, but not the best for my loved one.

I was not impressed with this tour!!
I was not impressed at all with my tour of this community. When they took us through the common area it had a really bad overwhelming smell of smoke and I did not like that I was able to smell that in the building. All of the residents also looked poorly cared for. A good majority of them where still in there pajamas and did not look well cared for at all. I would not have put my father in a living environment like this one.

AgeSong is was not appealing to us!!
This looks like a more traditional community. It felt more like an institution and did not have a homey feel to it. This community was nice, however I think it was a little expensive for what they offered.

Don't place your loved one at Woodpark
Don't place your loved one at Woodpark. [removed] Complaining to the management and the director has no effect. If you do place someone there, be sure to visit often and inspect EVERYTHING, otherwise your relative could end up sleeping a a bare mattress (I have seen this) with no sheets or blankets and wearing clothing that is so big it is a health hazard (i.e. due to tripping over their own clothes).

really good
They have been really good at getting out there to the hospital and assessing my friend. Everything they did was just really awesome. They really understand how dementia works and try to live in the solution and not the problem. This facility in particular is really good. They have really good interns that are very helpful.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Elder Ashram

Elder Ashram offers Studio and Semi-Private. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Elder Ashram 8 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
