Our residents and family members provide an added perspective of what makes The Woodlands special.
“We moved into The Woodlands in March 2014, with our little Shih Tzu, Riley. Over the previous five years we had visited a half-dozen communities, all too large. After several visits to The Woodlands, we decided at its fifth-anniversary celebration that The Woodlands was a perfect fit for us.
It is locally owned and managed, with 102 apartments and about 130 residents, plus it is only ten minutes away from our daughter. We decided to become members of Futures List, thinking that we would probably move in two to three years. Eight months later we decided not to wait any longer.
We value our new friendships, enjoy all the diverse, talented residents, the many varied social programs, the fine dining, and the gracious accommodating staff. It's the best decision we've made since we married, almost 50 years ago.”

“The time came in my life when I knew I should begin a new chapter. No waiting for the right time….no over thinking!
I looked all over the area…near and far. Some communities were too big or too far away… some I only got as far as the lobby area and walked out. When I visited The Woodlands I knew immediately that this was to be my new home. The residents were from all over the United States…every profession from military to musicians, doctors, lawyers, government, teachers, librarians etc. the meals are superb from the professional kitchen staff to our wait staff who are delightful and try to please your every request.
The exercise program continues to add new approaches to meet everyones fitness needs. Our 90 degree heated pool serves the residents and also offer aquatic fall prevention and balance classes to those who live in area. Living at The Woodlands is truly 5 star.”
“I’ve lived at The Woodlands since June 2008. It has afforded me many privileges and good friends. Our social and physical education departments are active each day. We are like a congenial family.”
“My wife and I moved into The Woodlands Retirement Community in September 2009 and couldn’t have been happier living here since then. Together we enjoyed all aspects of life here until her passing a year ago and since then I have been buoyed by my association with the many good friends we made in the relative short time we had lived here.
I believe that the ambience begins with well-appointed and pleasant surroundings and continues with the well-trained staff, be it the dining room staff or the housekeeping staff or the maintenance staff or the management staff which is always willing to be of service and helpful, regardless of the circumstances. The dining room menu changes weekly, and the excellent, well-prepared food is served as a five-course dinner every night with a superior presentation. Activities are plentiful and varied, including numerous musical programs that satisfy a wide spectrum of tastes.
I cannot think of what more we need to make our retirement life better than the comfortable and pleasant surroundings, good food, and dedicated and competent staff that serve us here at The Woodlands Retirement Community. ”
“Are you looking for a place where you have to dress up for dinner each night? Like to put on a tux or beautiful dinner dress? If you answered ‘yes’ then you might not be thrilled to live at The Woodlands. Here it’s more like you never left home, except you have many more friends with which to mingle. Oh, and food that’s probably better than you had at home. You don’t have to pass a ‘compatibility’ test to live here, but you’ll think that everyone else did, and they all passed. And if you really want to get dressed up for dinner, I guess you can.”
