The Woodlands Inn’s Small Home Advantage
Now that you’ve had a chance to watch the video, you may have noticed a common theme: connections.
Several of the Woodlands Inn community members interviewed — from the chief compliance officer to the life enrichment coordinator — expressed how the feeling of family emanates from all corners of the Assisted Living neighborhood.
Edgewood’s adaptation of the “small house” model of Assisted Living is what makes this feeling possible. In contrast to the traditional model, The Woodlands Inn was designed to resemble a classic New England bed-and-breakfast and is comprised of 40 personal residences arranged into four small house clusters of 10 residents each.
This setup makes it easier for residents to form more intimate connections with their housemates and gives them the confidence to engage with members of the other small houses as well. Interpersonal connection is vital to the wellness of older adults. Daily interaction with others prevents isolation and instills the sense of belonging we all yearn for. Seniors who are disconnected are at a higher risk of heart disease, stroke and other health obstacles.
That’s why residents at The Woodlands Inn come together each day to share meals, play games, watch movies and more in the community’s homelike environment. And the small house model ensures an ideal caregiver-to-resident ratio. This means residents can get more one-on-one care and support than they would in a more traditional setting.
