IL Tourreviewed on: 04/20/2019 by Mike Maclafferty
My family checked out the independent living studio, we like that all meals are included and they said we can add on care (showers and medication). The building was a little dark, but a lot of people were out about walking around.
Great Locationreviewed on: 05/17/2018 by Shavon S
My mother lives in the Assisted Living at Whispering Woods. We chose Whispering Woods due to the location - it is right off of East Paris, which is where all my mothers Specialists are at. We also have a family membership at the MVP across the street so we will swing by and grab my mother to join us or to relax by the pool.
Peaceful Campusreviewed on: 04/09/2019 by Brian Dekorte
Toured this campus for my dad right before he passed. We were looking for memory care options that could provide hospice. We were told they would bring in a hospice agency they work with or we could bring our own. Nice quiet campus, my family agreed this would have been the place for my dad to stay at before he was called home.
Happy Parentsreviewed on: 04/09/2018 by Robert Lee
My sister and I had to make a quick decision on where to move our parents. Our father was in the hospital and was reaching a discharge date and our mother could not take care of him by herself anymore. We worked with the case manager at the hospital who hooked us up with Whispering Woods. We were able to tour right away and move through the admissions process quickly that day. The hospital was able to do a direct discharge of my father a few days later and my mother joined the following week. Whispering Woods worked with the transition of my mother doing everything and helping take over the care portion of my father. They have both enjoyed the extra help and the staff. Activities have been great too, they are mingling with people their own age.
