I Visited This Facility

The person that took me around Woodland Terrace at the Oaks was very nice. It seemed like it would be a very nice place to live. The facility was very clean. They serve three meals a day: breakfast, lunch, and supper.

We didn't have an appointment at Woodland Terrace at the Oaks, but the staff was nice and accommodated us. The apartments were nice but not as good as the other community we saw. They showed us one that was spacious and one that was not very spacious. The dining hall was nice, sunny, and joyful.

Woodland Terrace at the Oaks was a wonderful place. They showed me a double room which was spacious enough, but there were no walls nor shared area, just two rooms. It was the only drawback. Otherwise, it was almost like a 5-star hotel. The common rooms were so nice. The activities were well thought out, and there were a lot to choose from. They were doing yoga when I was there, and it was very upbeat. The dining area was so nice with tablecloths and napkins, and you order off a menu like in a restaurant. The location was very peaceful.

There is a constant turnover in staff. Place was sold in 2016 and lots of promises were made for improvements but it has gone in the opposite direction. There are medication errors made frequently, rooms are left in filthy condition, meal quality has decreased - lots of pre-made or frozen entrees and residents often sit for over an hour waiting for service. If you plan to take a loved one there, hopefully you can visit on a regular basis, particularly in the evening & on weekends Most issues are due to understaffing & lack of supervision.. They are great at marketing but no accountability is taken for errors made and messages to management go unanswered.

My mother is at Woodland Terrace at the Oaks. It seems to be OK. She has been there since the beginning of May. It's very neat and clean. The people are friendly. They seem to be taking good care of her. They provide 3 meals plus a snack. They have physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. My mother is being evaluated if they can do anything to improve her condition.

I guess things haven't changed since my mother was there for two months in 2014 in the dementia unit. We had to move her out for many of the same reasons listed by the recent reviewer. She was left to lay on the floor all night, not brought out for dinner, no medical care given when injured, the list goes on. It may have beautiful rooms, but the staffing and management leaves much to be desired.

This review is strictly for the memory care unit. If I could give no stars, I would. This place should be shut down immediately. The Memory care unit is understaffed, and the staff that is there is negligent with one exception (Pat is terrific). A staff member put my poor grandmother back into bed with a broken femur. We found her lying in bed in excruciating pain several hours later. We had to take her to the ER, no effort was made by the staff to facilitate anything. She passed away shortly thereafter, luckily she did not pass away inside the urine and feces soaked walls of that place. When we went to clean out her room, the entire memory care staff was sitting and chatting, not paying attention to any residents, most of whom are unable to talk to walk. When I went through my loved ones belongings, it looked like her laundry wasn't done for months if not years. The toliet was brown and filthy. The residents in memory care are not provided with diapers or helped with hygiene in any way. The staff doesn't ensure that people are eating or showing up for meals. One time the heat was broken and nothing was being done to keep the residents warm, so we brought in blankets. They over medicate residents to the point where they lie helpless in bed all day. Bottom line- if you want to spend thousands a month for your loved one to be ignored and treated worse than a caged animal, send them here.
