I loved the community. The only downfall was the room. It was small room with a small closet and no kitchen. The staff was awesome! We spoke with the residents, and they gave glowing reviews too of the community.

Just moved my father out, Administrator number 3 since he got there 8 months ago. Nurse [name removed]is horrible, uncaring and lazy. The sales person was nice enough, but was not very caring once you moved in.

We chose Woodhomle Gardens at the time because they had low covid numbers and they have been able to keep it under control. There were also some familiar faces here for my mom as well. I think they could use improvement on the cleanliness in the residents rooms, they are short staffed but it seems like they are trying. I think they are trying to rebuild so it is up and down but they seem to be picking up more residents.

I wanted to express my appreciation and recognition for [name removed]. He is truly caring and accommodating for family and my father. He is always attentive and listening which is a lost art today but so needed in human services. [names removed] have done a great jog coordinating these visits. What I like about [name removed] despite his busy schedule he gets back to you promptly. Also [name removed] that works with [name removed] is Great Too! Both are so patient. [name removed] is so positive and caring. My father. Loves the Ravens. She makes sure and reminds him about the games. She has been so flexible helping with video chats which has been our lifeline. [name removed] has a heart of Gold. Before the virus his activities and organization are superb!! He does the best Happy Hour. My father does not like activities but thanks to [name removed] the Happy Hour is a hit. They both are good team and what they do makes a difference. It is so important to have stable staff, I hope they will be here for a quite awhile #livefullylovefully

Staff The administration continually changes. In the 6 months that I had my dad there the facility has had 3 different directors. This signals internal turmoil management wise or a facility that is impossible to run. It is clear that the greater organization that Woodholme is a part of is for profits and not it's residents. You pay top dollar, but get the bare bones. The nursing staff is quite good, but once again it changes often, however the aides and other support staff is another story. I will first say that there are some aides that are pretty amazing and they want to be there and want to help. However many are down right nasty. When my mother wasn't moving fast enough with their requests, they would talk to her as if she were stupid or just be downright snappy. This happened with more than several aides and the nurse tech is just awful. All she does is dispense medication. If you ask her something as simple as "Who is responsible for cleaning the bathroom", She will be quick to say that she isn't house keeping. My point is that the nurses tech will do nothing outside of her job, not even point you in the direction of something and then she acts as if she doesn't even want to be there. This isn't a one time instance, this happened on 2 or more occasions. The rude staff behavior is constant. They act as if you are bothering them, when help is requested. I have had staff roll their eyes at me when asked to drop something off in a room during a pandemic. Again this is not all staff, but several of the staff members have these qualities and it happens often enough to point out. Answering the call light. It does not happen in a timely manner. They claim someone comes within 7 minutes, but this simply is not true. My mother fell many times trying to get to the bathroom, because she was waiting for over 30 minutes for them to come and assist her. This tells me the facility does not have the personnel to meet the demands of the residents. Medication Doses were missed of crucial medicine under the guise of "the pharmacy didn't send it." I actually called behind to check and the pharmacy assured me their courier dropped the meds off producing actual documentation of such. Their medication management is quite poor. No resident should ever be without their medication. Cleanliness The common areas are quite clean and bright. The dining area is lovely and the common bathrooms are very clean and without odor. When it comes to keeping the residents rooms clean, it is horrible. My parents bathroom stayed filthy and so did the floor, countertops, and their refrigerator. These are tasks that they can not do, and the facility knew this. As a family, we didn't even bother to fight that fight with this facility as we were so busy advocating for other things for our parents. I had to hire an outside service to come and clean their room. Transportation The transport is in bad need of repair and it is quite a rough ride. It would be OK for a healthy person, but not the elderly with fragile systems. Pricing You are basically paying for an overpriced apartment for your loved one. If you are going to pay a high price such as this, then really do your due diligence or even see if you can upgrade into another tier of assisted living facilities. We kept our parents home many years before placing them here. We didn't just dump them there. The only reason they got half way decent, and I stress half way...is because we were there and present all of the time. Look elsewhere. This company does not deserve your money.
The rooms are cleaned on a regular basis. They have had a lot of change in management and weren't good about communicating the changes to the families. Communication with the families is something they need to work on. A lot of the staff show a lot of compassion with the residents and they try to do their jobs the best they can with what they've got.
My 96 year old grandmother had an awful experience there. We had to more her after six weeks. Another resident ransacked her room and then the staff couldn't find her. When we got there, we found her sitting in the dining room shaking and the resident who ransacked her room was sitting next to her. It was very disappointing. Then the doctor discontinued a medication and the staff continued the administer the medication for an additional four days. After that, she had pink eye and the staff didn't provide the cleaning or treatment ointment as directed by the doctor. In the end, the community did refund our money at 100 % to resolve the situation. It really was the worst experience that you could imagine would ever happen to your loved one.
Paradise Assisted Living was not very appealing. Furniture and rooms seemed worn, old. Greeting was not as relaxed. First mentioned cost,before we had looked at anything at that point. Perhaps it was because we were late.
Staff was friendly and professional. They didn't have my appointment on their schedule and so main person that handles tour was not there. Thankfully they were able to accommodate us for a tour. Rooms seem smaller that I would like but overall the facilities were clean and cheerful.

*Long Post but please read* This place is horrible and the current Head Nurse, is so rude, heartless and in the wrong line of business. If I could give negative stars than that would be more deserving. My mom suffers from dementia and was in the Memory Care unit for a little under a year. She often complained about the place being dirty, the constant overturn in staff and lack of activities available. Prior to enrolling my mom as a resident, I sat down with the Exec. Dir. for hours to see if Woodholme would be a good fit and was reassured that this facility and staff would be more than equipped to accommodate her needs. During the initial sit down, it was made quite clear that our family was very involved in our moms wellbeing and simply asked for open communication regarding her whereabouts and healthcare needs. Once again, we were reassured that we would be notified of matters regarding her in which that rarely happened. The current Head Nurse chose to take matters in her own hands and prescribed my mother Xanax (which was too strong for her body) without notifying the family or mom’s personal physician. Once confronted, the Head Nurse went through great lengths to put my mom out. This included sending my mother to the hospital in the middle of the night without notifying the family of her whereabouts and not allowing her back despite the doctors prognosis that she responded well to her new treatment. There was no advanced notification or communication with the family of this decision and were told that the final decision had been made a week prior. No voicemail, letter, phone call, nothing! To make matters worse, funds have already been withdrawn for this month (April) even though she has not been in the facility at all. Needless to say that my mom was unethically thrown out of the facility in such a crass manner. Overall, The communication between the Head Nurse and executives has been awful to say the least. Numerous messages and emails prior to this incident were sent and left unreturned. It is extremely difficult finding a facility where your loved one can feel comfortable and receive the proper care and attention needed. THIS IS NOT THE FACILITY TO GO TO. If you love your family member and are extremely hands on with how they are being treated during such a fragile and vulnerable point of their life, then I WOULD NOT recommend this place. They do not care about their residents. They are simply all about the money.
Seems quiet and unassuming. Mother is respected as are the others .

I liked the place. Clean, attractive residents engaged. Met w Exec Director who had a ton of good advice. But it is pricey.
Beautiful facility. Good to see diversity among residents and good to see them actively engaged and having a good time. The big push is for a shared room to help keep the costs down. This is not appealing for my situation. Basic prices are raised by exorbitant add-ons. With a minimum add-on of $800/ mo., the cost of a shared room is only $20 cheaper than a studio at the Atrium. And these are supposedly special offers that must be decided on quickly or they disappear.
Everything is going just fine at this location! The staff are great and they are doing what they can to make my loved one feel very comfortable. We also appreciated the fact that it fit so well into our set budget. Overall, we have no complaints!
No openings in the near future but it is a nice place. Would have considered if they had an opening.
Nice accommodations and reasonably priced. Pleasant staff and plenty of activates for engagements of community residents.
This community has different floors for the residents. The more independent residents are on the first floor and as you go up to the fourth floor these are the residents that need the most care. The staff are helpful and friendly. Sometimes they do seem to be short on staff. The food is healthy and does not taste to bad. They keep the community clean and my loved one seems a little more active.
[removed] and staff were very warm and knowledgeable. I was quite comfortable about every aspect of my tour and visit.
We just absolutely love this place and the people. We are really thrilled with the level of care that they are giving my dad. The staff has been able to get everything done and they have been able to accommodate when we need them to.
I'am overall pleased with this community. My uncle is doing very well. The community is very well maintained, they do a good job with the cleanliness of the community. The staff is great with supporting the needs of uncle. Everything had worked out very well. [Removed] from a place for mom was amazing with all the help she provided me with.
