May We Introduce Ourselves?

All about our not-for-profit Life Plan community.

The Woodlands at Furman is the only locally owned, not-for-profit Life Plan Community in Upstate South Carolina to offer a Life Care contract that guarantees independent living and a full continuum of care on-site, including assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing.

Because we’re a not-for-profit senior living community, we can reinvest financial resources into The Woodlands — benefiting those who live here.

Moreover, since we’re locally owned, we don’t have to answer to outside corporate interests or shareholders. Our bottom line is our residents and their quality of life. Many of our employees and leadership team are from the Greenville community and are dedicated to giving back.

Because we have Life Care, residents can age in place with confidence and long-term peace of mind, knowing their healthcare needs will be met at predictable costs.

Located on 45 beautiful acres adjoining Furman University and just minutes away from downtown Greenville, SC, we’re perfectly situated for enjoying everything the Upstate has to offer.

The Furman connection.

Our partnership with Furman University is a big reason many of our residents choose The Woodlands. It connects you with the energy, excitement and lifelong learning opportunities of a college campus that’s adjacent to ours.

About Our Community

Our values.

We’re guided by principles that help us fulfill our vision to be the retirement community of choice by nurturing a distinctive culture of enrichment for our residents.

We’re responsible to the people living in our community and to their families.

Everything we do will be of high quality to meet their needs. Everyone will be recognized as an individual, and we’ll respect their dignity and opinions. They must have a sense of safety and care while residing in our community. We’ll provide continuing opportunities for them to enrich their lives. We’ll strive to manage our costs to maintain reasonable prices.

We’re responsible to our employees.

Compensation will be merit-based and fair, and working environments will be clean, orderly and safe. We will provide qualified employees with equal opportunities for professional development and advancement. Employees are encouraged to make suggestions and provide constructive feedback.

We’re responsible to the communities in which we live and work.

We’ll be good citizens; support good work and better health and education. We’ll maintain our properties while protecting the environment and conserving natural resources.

We’re responsible to our community for how we manage finances.

New facilities and equipment will be purchased and new programs paid for. Reserves will be preserved to cover adverse times. We’ll continuously strive for innovations and efficiencies in our programs and operations to be good stewards of our financial assets.

Making a difference.

The Woodlands Foundation was created to honor our commitment to providing lifelong enrichment and care, as well as to improve the quality of life for residents. Your gift is used for programs and capital needs, as well as for future benevolent care, allowing us to offer support for residents who meet unexpected financial hardships.
