Lifestyle Options at The Woodlands

Assisted Living: Support When It’s Needed

Our assisted living option supports older adults who need or want assistance with daily tasks. Assisted living aims to help residents safely maintain their autonomy and independence while providing them with assistance in particular areas. These daily tasks may include:

  • Mobility
  • Transportation and errands
  • Bathing and personal care
  • Help with medications
  • Housekeeping and laundry
  • Meal preparation

By choosing to live in our resort-style assisted senior living community in West Dundee, Illinois, residents can enjoy access to our exquisite dining room, beautiful and spacious personal apartments, social events and activities, and first-class hospitality. 

Memory Support: Specialized Dementia Care

Our memory support option focuses on individuals living with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other forms of cognitive impairment and memory loss. We provide a welcoming environment that allows residents to continue living with purpose and vitality in a beautiful and safe community setting.

Our expert and compassionate team members work directly with residents to ensure their needs are met, and they experience kindness, joy and fulfillment in everything they do. We recognize that dementia causes irreversible changes to the brain, but we also know that this does not diminish the person’s ability to live a full life. Because of this, we use the best practices and methodologies to partner with them on their memory care journey.
