We visited the Woods at Canco, and it was very nice. It was what we were looking for; however, it was expensive. The staff was very friendly and very knowledgeable. We didn't see anybody milling about.

The Woods at Canco has a high level of activity available and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. When we were there, there was a concert going on. The rooms were very nice, well-suited, and certainly took into consideration the needs of an older individual.

The Woods at Canco's rooms were very nice, and I was very pleased with what I saw. They had a library and a lot of puzzles out. They had different activities for people, and a room where you can have guests stay overnight, which was nice. I love the place. The dining area was beautiful and sounded like the food was very well prepared. I had a little snack, which was delicious. The menus looked very good, and the staff was great. I wouldn't have any issue with anything they have. The place is very clean, and they have a place to walk out in the backyard.

The Woods is very lovely; it's clean and well-organized. The staff was wonderful, explained everything, answered our questions, and filled in the blanks. The rooms are great. They have tons of activities; they had a train expositions, art classes, yoga, food demonstration, and gardening. However, the girl that followed-up on us was very pushy.
