Our family had an in person tour and it was nice but we were looking more for just senior apartment living.

A very safe environment

Walker Methodist community is in a good location and the structure is nice. The cleanliness and friendliness of the staff really stood out to me. The value for cost is good, and it is just a beautiful environment for living. During the pandemic they disinfected everything constantly, and were always checking the residents and visitors temperatures.

I would recommend Walker Methodist at Westwood Ridge

I was hoping when my loved one moved in that there would be some help available, like a resident ambassador who spent time with the new residents to help them get used to everting. My loved one still doesn't know where anything is, but that could be on her as well. It's pretty daunting to move into a new place and be left on your own, even in independent living. It would be nice to have a buddy at first to get to know the ropes. But the staff have been great. They're very friendly and informative. She really likes her apartment. Out of all the places that we looked at, the size is the most generous for a 1-bedroom. It's nice that the doorways are wide. She has a step-in shower, which is nice. I would definitely recommend them to other families.

Highly recommend

We chose Walker Methodist because they were close to his home and also we had talked to others who had been there and they were very happy with it as well. The room sizes are very big and spacious. We have been satisfied with our experience and would absolutely recommend them to others who are looking.

Walker Methodist Westwood Ridge is a special place. The wonderful residents are the heart and soul of the community. They are supported by a dedicated team of people that are truly committed to making Walker the best place to live and work. The campus is wooded making for beautiful views. Walking paths are easily accessible from both buildings, the full time life enrichment team provide a variety of opportunities for socialization and fun, the care givers do an outstanding job and are kind and compassionate, the fitness specialist is outstanding, and the food exceptional. Please check us out and discover all that's waiting for you!

Not bad, but definitely not the best

I've been here at Westwood ridge now for going on my fifth week. At first the service was great, but as they got more patients it seems like staff hasn't increased to maintain that high level of service. I often find myself waiting over 15 minutes when I hit the call button and I'm often left hooked up to an IV for hours after it's completed to a point where I have to unhook myself. I've had to do my own wound changes as the nurse simply left for the day and decided that I didn't need to have it changed. They refuse to purchase the necessary supplies to complete a proper wound change. They have the cheapest tape and are simply unwilling to buy better tape. Bottom line... I would keep looking for a facility that cares more about the patient then the bottom line.

Real life influences everything

I would like to believe COVID restrictions tainted my review of the facility. Please keep that in mind as you read this. I was excited about Walker, when I toured the Assisted Living apartments and thought their activities would be great for Mom. Then COVID hit and everything was on lock down, and Mom declined significantly during isolation. All the reasons for picking Walker were gone due to COVID. As restrictions were eased Mom had a fall, and it has been one problem after another since. We signed Mom up for services and it started off ok, and lead to her care givers sending her to the hospital multiple times. As it turns out, her care giver noticed Mom’s stools were darker then they should be indicating blood in them, but did not share that with the paramedics until the 2nd time in one week they were called, after Mom passed out.. It should have been mentioned the first time they were called. Then as the paramedics are taking Mom out on a stretcher to the hospital, my arrives to this heartbreaking situation and the nurse on site tells my sister, your Mom can’t come back, she needs to much care. Seriously, awful timing. Not enough to feel run over by a truck but then the nurse puts it in reverse and runs her over again. Fortunately the hospital had folks to help us navigate the next steps. As is, I would not recommend Walker. Without COVID, I don’t know what I would say.

I would recommend.

The added benefit at Walker Methodist is that they have private rooms. They have a waiting list. The staff is friendly and they offer options. The room sizes are great. They have a screened-in porch on the second floor. On the first floor, they have a secured walking path.

I was very impressed with Westwood Ridge, but what really mattered to me is that I'll be able to enter as an independent living resident, with the option to add assisted living components as needed in the future, without moving to a different apartment. I've been living in a townhouse for 15 years and am looking for a place without stairs, with flexible living options, and, most importantly, without the need to move again. This was my first visit, but it will take something extraordinary for me to end up somewhere else.

I toured this community

I went on a tour here and the staff was nice and answered all of my questions. I really liked this place. They had huge rooms with their own patio area.If it was long term my dad would have been here. I recommend families tour many communities so they can compare them.

My Parent's are Home

My family and I chose this community for my parents after looking at the reviews and A place for Mom helped a lot. The caregivers are exceptional and so caring. The food is great. They have lots of activities like on Thursdays at 3 its popcorn time my dad loves popcorn. They drive them to their appointments which is a big help for us. They have walking paths behind there and patios to sit on. Everything is always clean and kept up. I would definitely recommend this to my friends and family which I have already done.

Satisfied With This Community

It has been a transition for me with my move to this community. After living in your home next to your loves one, and neighbors. It can be hard to adjust to a whole new living environment. However this is a good facility, and I'am satisfied with it. Everyone has been kind, and welcoming. The staff is helpful whenever needed. It has been a good experience so far. The only thing I would recommend, is that when you move into one of these facility's, I feel it is best to move in with a love one. It can make the transition a lot easier. Overall I'am well in this community, and I would recommend it.

A homey atmosphere!!

My husband and I are doing very well. We are still adjusting because we still keep feeling we want our house. The community has been good to us. The only concern I have is with the sidewalks and parking lots, they have cement that isn't level and I am afraid that someone will trip and fall. Other than that, they have a good variety of meals and activities available. They also accept dogs. When I toured, I felt comfortable walking in, everyone is very welcoming.

[Removed] didn't have my appointment scheduled, but she got herself organized and answered all of my questions for now. Everything is Al a Cart for meals and services. One concern was that they served alcohol on Wednesdays and sometimes have events with alcohol. My mom is currently in recovery, t has had struggles with alcohol.

Like living in a luxury hotel!

A Place For Mom gave me the addresses of four assisted living residence's and on my first tour of an assisted residence, I was impressed the residence was clean and decorated top-notch. The second apartment I was shown, I fell in love with it in three minutes. I had no idea what I wanted in an apartment, but when I saw this place, I knew it was exactly what I wanted. I never thought I would be able to afford an apartment with a balcony, but I could at Westwood Ridge. My place faces east and I love the morning sun, plus I have a great view of Robert Street through the barren, winter-time trees that surround Westwood. I love the woods. After my first snow here, I went out for a little walk on the path that surrounds the building, and I saw numerous deer and rabbit tracks. I was told there is a fox and wild turkeys that also come through the yard. The kitchen was the perfect size for one person, and I could fit my table in there and then had more living room space by not putting the table out there. There are two pass-through windows in the kitchen so the room seems large. The bedroom is large and has a big closet. The residents are all very nice and when I would meet one of the women, she would invite me to nightly bingo. Sounds fun and a great way to meet new friends. I try and go to the free brunch every morning to socialize and meet new friends. Most residents are the age my parents would have been. I've adopted everyone (they don't know that) because I plan to be here a long time and I see them everyday so they are like my new family. If you have a maintenance problem, you fill out a slip on what you would like done, and maintenance responds very quickly. Have something you no longer want or need, put it on the free table and somebody always takes it. I've found some very beautiful things for my new apartment. We have a chef and he and staff serve very delicious food! I tell my friends that if I never wanted to leave here, everything, including groceries, a beautician, a nurse, and a doctor who comes once a week are available. We have a bus that will drive you to a doctor's appointment, once a week the bus goes to two different grocery stores, once a week the bus goes to Target and Walmart, once a week the bus drives you on errands at certain locations on Robert Street, once a week the bus will take a group out for lunch or a dinner, and many more outings. One of my first few days, I was walking down the hall and I thought the residence looks like a luxury hotel with all the amenities! Another perk: when the weather is freezing, raining or snowing and you need to drive somewhere, all you have to do is walk out into the 65 degree garage and jump into your car!!
