A community within a community, Woodland Towers offers so much more than an affordable and secure place to live. There are a multitude of activities and services available for our residents ranging from aquatic fitness programming in our therapeutic pool, convenient mobile banking services, and relaxing spa services that enable our residents to maintain their independence, all from within the comfort of their own home.
This morning I went and stocked up on my groceries, participated in an exercise class, had my hair styled, and then had lunch with my friends; all without setting a foot outdoors!
At Woodland Towers, we believe in actively creating community amoung our residents. One of the main ways we do this is through providing our residents home cooked meals each month, served in our beautifully decorated dining room.
The Woodland Towers Dining Room provides two meals per day, seven days per week and each meal is designed by our Nutrition Services Team to ensure that it meets the dietary needs of our residents.
The following are the set start times for each meal service:
- Noon Meal - 11:45 am
- Evening Meal – 4:45 pm
Recognizing that our resident’s lead busy, active lives, our weekly menu is posted at the entrance in each elevator, as well as on the main bulletin board, and television screen in the Front Lobby, allowing you the flexibility to attend based on your meal preferences and schedules.
While residents participate in a minimum of 16 meals a month, they are welcome to purchase additional meals as they wish, and families and visitors are welcome to join the residents as guests for any meal for a nominal fee.
Our Certified Seniors Fitness Instructor offers exercise programs designed specifically for Older Adults and those suffering from chronic health conditions. Our programs accommodate a wide variety of functional abilities and give you the tools and education you need to prevent falls and age at home. There are three levels of classes to choose ranging from gentle to moderate to vigorous. Please click here for our class selection.
