Woods Health Services, in La Verne, California joined the Eden Registry on August 13, 2018. Their inspiration to join the Registry grew out of their participation in a pair of California-based, grant projects featuring Eden Alternative education and consultation.  For over half a century, Elders have enjoyed life among the quiet, tree-lined streets of La Verne. Just minutes from downtown La Verne, the acres and acres of trees and gardens blend beautifully with the surrounding neighborhood. This is a lively community filled with 59 dynamic and unique individuals. Woods Health Services is part of the larger Hillcrest community, which includes independent living, assisted living and care for those living with different cognitive abilities. The 50-acre campus proudly boasts an Aquatic and Fitness Center, beauty salon and lots of gorgeous gardens. The state-of-the-art fitness center offers an indoor pool, spa, and the latest in exercise equipment.

Gathering for meals each day is a treat because Elders are sure there will be many delicious choices prepared by their amazing chef. If you come for a visit during lunchtime, you will see employee care partners enjoying a meal with the Elders. This is a great time for meaningful connection, storytelling, and lots of laughter. Monthly, Elders enjoy choosing a country that they would like to “visit” virtually. They enjoy food, drinks, crafts and movies from that country to immerse in the experience. The Elders drive daily life in the home by choosing menus, leading social events, volunteering across the campus, caring for plants indoors and out, or spending time at the reception desk greeting guests as they enter their home. Come see for yourself why their mission is: “We willingly pledge our personal commitment to uphold our person-centered mission to create an environment where loneliness, helplessness, and boredom are replaced with loving companionship, opportunities to give care, and spontaneous moments of joy.”
