Keep reading for a closer look at what life is really like at The Woodlands at Furman.
Connected to the Life and People You Love
You may rethink your idea of assisted living once you discover The Woodlands at Furman. Not only are we locally owned and involved in the Greenville community, but our campus is adjacent to Furman University. When we say there’s always something to do right outside your door, we really mean it! Our residents have limitless opportunities for exploring lifelong learning, enjoying cultural and sporting events, attending renowned musical performances and more, all right where they live.
Having the Right Support, Right When You Need It
At The Woodlands at Furman, we understand everyone has different needs and preferences when it comes to assisted living in Greenville. Maybe it’s getting help managing medications and having them delivered. Or maybe it’s more regular assistance with getting ready each day. At The Woodlands, we put people first, personalizing assisted living services to fit each individual’s needs. The goal is to give you the support you need to stay in control.
An important reason so many families feel we are the best-assisted living community in the area is because we’re also the only locally owned, not-for-profit Life Plan Community in the Upstate to offer a Life Care contract that guarantees a full continuum of care on-site. The Woodlands at Furman ensures you can age in place, knowing your health care needs will be met at predictable costs well below market rates. Our assisted living services include:
- Assistance with the activities of daily living, as needed
- Medication management provided by a licensed nurse
- Pharmacy delivery
- Access to a geriatric physician/geriatric nurse practitioner
- Transportation to medical appointments, cultural events or daytrips
- On-site rehabilitation therapy services
Enjoying More of Life Your Way
If you’re still wondering what a typical day within our assisted living community in Greenville looks like, consider the possibilities that await our residents for tomorrow. First, they’ll wake up in a beautiful, private apartment (there’s a range of floor plans to choose from) whenever they like, and have their choice of breakfast options — join their friends in the dining room for a delicious chef-prepared meal or make their own favorite at home. Either way, they have extra support if they need it to get ready and start their day with confidence.
After that, it’s up to them as to what activities to engage in: a new class through our partnership with Furman University, a regular exercise routine, maybe a haircut or nail service. The choice is theirs! For lunch, busy residents can enjoy a grab-and-go sandwich from the Casual Café, or settle in to catch up with friends returning from the golf course. No matter the option, everything is always made with local, fresh ingredients (at least 20% from small ranchers, farmers, fishermen and food producers within 150 miles of our campus).
The afternoon offers too many opportunities to fit into any one day, from everything happening at Furman University to our own library, pool, fitness center and calendar of activities. Maybe it’s the next day trip that everyone’s been looking forward to. Or showing family around before they join for a restaurant-style dinner. The day can be as busy — or not — as any resident wants it to be. Whenever it’s time to call it a night, help is always on hand, if needed, for everything from managing nighttime medications to assistance with bedtime routines for their best four-legged friend (pets are welcome at The Woodlands).
