People ask many questions when thinking about living at Woodlands. We hope this information makes your decision a bit easier.

What is Woodlands Retirement Community?

Woodlands is a LifeCare community for people 55 and over with three defining areas of living. First, it is a residential community that encourages wellness through an active, independent lifestyle and the companionship of close friends. Second, it provides services, events and special amenities that enhance independent living. Third, it provides every resident access to on-site assisted living and memory support services should they ever need them.

What is so special about a Continuing Care Retirement Community?

Woodlands combines unparalleled financial security and peace of mind, with a truly independent lifestyle and wide range of services and amenities. Living at Woodlands eliminates the time-consuming chore of home maintenance, fear of becoming a burden to relatives, the concerns of aging among strangers, and worries about the availability and cost of quality long-term care. Woodlands is also special in that it is the only continuing care retirement community in the Tri-State area that is also a LifeCare community.

What is LifeCare?

Woodlands is proud to be this region’s only LifeCare Community. LifeCare works like an insurance product, guaranteeing that if you qualify for LifeCare, you will have access to Woodland’s advanced care services, when you need them, at a price that will always be comparable to that of a one-bedroom, independent living apartment. LifeCare also gives you the security of knowing that you will be able to stay in your Woodland’s home – even if you outlive your financial resources. That’s peace of mind at its finest.

How much does it cost?

The cost of living at Woodlands is made up of a one-time entrance fee and an ongoing monthly service fee. The entrance fee and monthly service fee depends on the floor plan you choose.

What happens if my spouse needs Assisted Living or Memory Support services and I don’t? Do we have to pay two fees? Do we have to move from our apartment home or cottage?

No, the independent resident can remain in the unit. The person in the apartment will continue to pay the first person fee and the assisted living or memory support resident will pay the one bedroom rate.

How do I reserve an apartment home or cottage at Woodlands?

Planning ahead is always a smart move. At Woodlands, we have a Wait List of people who want to reserve an apartment home or cottage today to help ensure the type of unit they desire is available either now or in the future.

What if I decide not to move in?
