The Woodlands at Hillcrest is amazing! The staff are always so welcoming when we visit my grandma!  She has always been a picky eater but says nothing but great things about the food!  She loves to visit with the other ladies and gentlemen that reside there, which is good for her to have that interaction! Since living at the woodlands, she has been on several outings with other residents, including shopping! She is still able to have independence!
