Overpriced for Neglect
My dad was in the memory care unit at Wildwood Downs. In the beginning, things seemed to be OK. Care dropped dramatically after a few months. Scary when because or CVD , quarantines,, God only knows how they were treated when family wasn't there. They lost ALL my dads clothes, ( or stole them), he always had cuts or bruises but no calls or explanations other than " he fell". No communication at all. They also refused to answer the phone when my mom would call to talk to him. They were supposed to have filled out paperwork and send to the new memory care facility and intentionally delayed so more costs accrued. Phones calls and emails were NOT answered in a fair timely manner. The staff and management should be investigated. What a disgrace

I love my Garden Home. I am age 77. I enjoy plenty of space in 1,500 sg ft. My home has 2 spacious bedrooms, an office, kitchen, 2 baths, dining room, living room and a Carolina room. I enjoy my yard as well. I care for 5 rose bushes, pretty grass, and bird feeders. I enjoy a great space to ride my bike and play golf. The grounds are well kept and everyone has a golf cart. the meals are very nice and the friends are what we do best.

Wildwood Downs is an answer to prayers.
I cannot say enough good things about the Wildewood Downs staff and community. From the moment we contacted them for my parents, we have been overwhelmed by the professional service and compassion that they have shown toward us. My Dad is now in skilled nursing and is recieving wonderful care in a very loving environment. My Mother is moving into an apartment in independent living and we couldnt be more pleased with her beautifully remodeled apartment. The staff has bent over backwards to work with us to ensure that my Mom is happy with her new apartment and excited about her upcoming move. I would encourage any one who is looking for that next step for their parents to contact the staff at Wildewood Downs. I am confident that you will be extremely pleased with the wonderful, caring assistance you will receive and the beautiful facility Wildewood Downs has to offer. It has been an answer to prayers for my family.
