What Our Residents & Their Families Say About Us

“After being diagnosed with lung cancer last December, I started the journey of chemo and radiation treatments. The support and love shown to me at St. Francis Woods was wonderful. If I needed anything I was told to, “just ask”. Thank you so much to the staff. St Francis Woods has become my family, my home.”

– Sue Waterman, Resident

“Living here has changed my life a lot. I had some serious medical issues while living in my home before I came here and I knew I couldn’t go back to the same environment. I asked God to help me! He has helped me get well so I can help other people like me. I believe it was a calling from God that I am here at St. Francis Woods. I am a better person, and I have peace and patience. Thanks to all the staff for making this an excellent home for me!"

– Bonnie Boston, Resident

“Bob and I want to tell you how happy we are that our daughter, Kay loves being at St. Francis Woods! She loves her private room, the food, and all the friends she has made there.”

– Bob & Jean Scheitlin, Family Members

“All the staff at St. Francis Woods are always friendly and helpful. My mom is very happy. She loves her apartment and the meals that are provided three times a day. She has friends and enjoys the various activities they do. Overseeing her medication is very helpful and important to her family. Thank you for making this possible!”

– Tim Green, Family Member

“If you enjoy nature and have a limited budget, this is definitively a place worth visiting.  The backyard is surrounded by mature hardwood trees and an abundance of wildlife.   You can sit and watch the wildlife yet be only a short walk from your apartment.  Each time I visit this facility, I’m met with smiling staff who’s eager to help.  Although this home lacks the glitz and glitter of some of the other higher dollar facilities, it’s clean, very friendly and should be on everyone’s list to visit.”

– Dave Molleck, Owner of 50-plus News and Views

“It has been preached to me repeatedly in my life that I should not make a rash assumption about situations in which I do not have all the information to back it up. This is where I found myself two and half years ago. At this time, I was determined that St. Francis Woods did not offer the lifestyle that was suited for me. I could not have been more wrong! Thanks to my sons and the marvelous staff here at St. Francis Woods who has allowed me to see the errors of my thinking. Upon moving into my beautiful apartment, I began to witness the multitude of benefits which awaited me. All my meals meet my culinary requirements, and long-lasting friendships which I have been fortunate to form. My family loves to come visit me and is met with enthusiasm from staff and other residents. I have every opportunity to get involved with daily activities not only on-site, but off-site as well. Things on-site consist of; bands, arts and crafts, ladies’ luncheons, church services, bingo while offsite activities include; wine tasting, baseball games, dining, shopping and so much more. I have come to love it here at St. Francis Woods and I was blessed the day I made it my home!”
