Underpaid and overworked workers leads to many things not being done while nurses and upper management will point the finger. Don’t put anyone you care about here. All they do is care about making a profit at the expense of workers and residents alike

The excellent staff at GS Woodlands has provided the best care for my parents. COVID regulations have been difficult for the elderly and they do their best to keep things positive. They pop in to the apartment to chat, bring surprises such as root beer floats, and do tasks several times each day to help counteract this time of isolation and physical distancing. Thank you to all of the staff at Good Samaritan Woodland.

Had parent living there. High turnover of staff, both assistants and RNs. Difficult to get feedback from staff. High costs for services and little flexibility. Questionable upkeep for facilities. Had elevator problems for months and when asked about fixing, was told the fix was expensive and would take time. Fire dept had to be called to get people out of stuck elevator at least once. When moved out, they wanted to keep full deposit for light rug stains on linoleum floor.

The staff is very disrespectful and only care about the money. I'll go higher up if I need to and have new staff put in, because the staff now is losing the place money and respect for the employees and higher class.

Horrible and they lie! My grandma is there but I can never find a nurse when I need one..... My grandpa was there a year ago before he passed away and I could always find someone. The activities are boring and none of the activity assistances are helpful or nice. I've heard them yell at residents! And what happened to that girl that was like a teen around 17 or 18 that helped with nursing and activities? You need her back. You lost someone who made your company look good. But seriously,start finding workers who can work and help out instead of never having people you can find. Also get employees who don't yell at their residents. We switched to a different company and its 100× better.
