Improving Mother

reviewed on: 04/09/2019 by Carol Balcer

My mother has been at Addington for a a few months after her stay at rehab. It was a quick move we were not really expecting to make, but the staff made it easy by sending the nurse out the day before her discharge to do an assessment and providing furniture for the room. We have since gotten her own items and decorations and she has been working with PT to gain her strength back. Looking forward to continued success and many more years.

Whispering Woods

reviewed on: 07/01/2013 by Linda

My parents came from a facility where all they did all day was have their chin resting on their chests, sleeping. When entering Whispering Woods for the very first time, my parents were met by a bubbly staff person and immediately engaged in a snack, word game, and singing. They stayed for the entire time. They are in Building #8 and can't believe the amount of space they can freely roam. They were used to being in a small space, locked setting. While this may still be a locked setting, they are not feeling being locked up. The Montessori Program here is just what my parents needed.

Florence is my step mom and her daughters talked with each other and decided something needs to be done and knew it wasn't going good and they decided to come together and go with Whispering Woods. When they moved Florence in, there was two maintenance guys who helped hang up her pictures and was very helpful making it feel like her community she was in previously. The food is excellent, there are side walks all the way around the community with foot steps/hand prints to remind the residents where to go. The outside could use an update but the room view is great, a pond with ducks & turkeys.

Relaxing Mother in Assisted Living

reviewed on: 04/09/2018 by Tara Taft

My mother is currently living in the Assisted Living at Whispering Woods, building 3. We both like the idea that it is divided in smaller buildings so she is able to meet people. So far through activities she has met a few ladies that used to live in the same area when they were younger. They go to Bingo, and get their nails done. The dining area has been pleasant, my mother is relieved she does not have to worry about providing/cooking food for herself. Everything is served right in the dining room, aka restaurant style. She also loves that staff is doing her laundry! She is truly learning to relax and enjoy herself, which is great to see because she took care of our family and father for the last 50 years of her life.

Memory Care Tour

reviewed on: 06/07/2019 by Chris Bowman

Just came for a tour in the Memory Care and was a little crazy, they were redoing the floor and furniture was moved, but we got a good idea of what the building had to offer. We were able to meet the nurse as we were walking through and had a chance to share a little bit about my mother. The room we saw was the showroom and was a private studio room with a walk in closet and a bathroom with a toilet and vanity. We also saw the shower room she would be using with assistance. We really loved the birds and the bunnies.
