Facilities

We know that many people choose The Woodlands because it is a small Home, which contributes to our residents feeling that they are part of an extended family. Many come to us on personal recommendation, which makes us very proud.

What do we offer?

Individual Rooms:The Woodlands Minibus

  • The Woodlands has fourteen private rooms on two floors, connected by a passenger lift;
  • All the rooms are normally occupied individually but two have ample space for a couple if so desired;
  • Six of the fourteen rooms are en-suite;
  • Additionally, there is a traditional bathroom fully equipped with a hoist, and a wet room for easily accessible showering;
  • All rooms are fully furnished but residents are encouraged, if they so wish, to bring some of their own furniture and personal items;
  • There are television points in each room and while a resident often prefers to bring his or her own set, we happily provide a television if needed.
  • There is Wi-Fi access for those who like to surf the web, browse online, send emails or Skype/Face-Time, and help for those who want to learn how.
