Woodland Creek’s Person-Centered Care approach focuses on customizing care options for residents’ individual needs, while the community’s Active Living Programs allow residents to live life to their fullest capability. The community’s Memory Care and Transitional Care programs are designed to nurture the physical, social, spiritual, cognitive, and emotional needs of all residents. The programs include music therapy, aromatherapy, validation techniques, socialization, a calendar of health and wellness activities, life skills stations, and more.
Additionally, the community provides options for health monitoring, medication management, assistance with dressing, bathing, grooming, and oral care, all delivered in an encouraging and nurturing environment.

The community also offers 24/7 dining with nutritious, delicious food prepared with the freshest ingredients. The dining program also incorporates foods from the research-backed Rush University Medical Center MIND diet, which is designed to foster brain health. At Woodland Creek, the MIND diet, in conjunction with the community’s many Memory Care programs, is intended to support mental health and prevent memory issues for as long as possible.
Finally, to make residents’ transition to retirement living easy and seamless, as a Sunshine community, Woodland Creek has partnered with northAmerican®, to institute a senior-specific program that lessens the strain associated with moving. Through this program, seniors can receive assistance with real estate, financial services, moving professionals, downsizing assistance, veteran assistance, and more.
