Innovative Small House Model
Based on the innovative Small House model, The Woodlands Inn offers residents a truly comfortable, home-like environment and a reassuring sense of community that will empower them to maintain their highest level of independence and autonomy. This expansion creates one Enhanced Living and three Memory Support households.
Each of the Woodland’s four households is designed to accommodate 10 resident members and features a central hearth area where residents can gather to engage in conversation, watch a movie, play games or just enjoy the warmth of the fireplace on a winter day. The open kitchen and dining area will be a hub of activity where residents can observe, participate in meal preparation and gather around the table to enjoy their meals together. Each household also offers a den, a laundry room, a spa, and a private courtyard and garden area where residents can enjoy the outdoors.
Within each household, private living quarters are arranged around the central hearth area to foster a sense of community and comfort. For convenience, The Woodlands Inn also offers a beauty salon/barber shop, rehabilitation gym, multi-use classroom and event space and a library.
An important feature of the Small House model is consistent staffing. Each household has a dedicated team of highly trained staff to provide continuity and enable staff to get to know each resident and his or her preferences and habits. Staff is on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to assist as needed and to provide services such as meal preparation, laundry, social, recreational and intellectual enrichment programming designed around residents’ interests.
Our dining experience is not typical of what you’d see at traditional assisted living communities. Our chef oversees menu selections and preparations after consulting with resident members. Meals are then freshly cooked in each household’s open kitchen area, which allows resident members to observe, help in preparation and enjoy dining with one another.
