Community Life

The Woodlands of Columbus celebrates its residents with special activities, seminars and more throughout the year that bring our community together.  Intergenerational programming and family nights encourage residents to invite their loved ones to participate within the community. Our residents join with local senior center attendees for activities and take part in a number of seasonal activities including Columbus Clippers’ games, Buckeye Lake boat tours, Lynd’s Fruit Farm apple picking, picnics in the park and Christmas lights driving tours. We also offer a wide range of musical entertainment onsite. Residents, family members and friends can keep track of all of our daily, weekly and monthly happenings, find out how to get involved in our activities, see photos from past events and get the latest news from our community by checking here.

Mother’s Love
Mother’s Love- Her love is like an island in life’s ocean, vast and wide. A peaceful, quiet shelter from the wind, the rain, the tide. ‘Tis bound on the north by Hope, By Patience on the West, By tender Counsel on the South and on the East by Rest. Above it like a beacon light Shine Faith, and Truth, and Prayer; And thro’ the changing scenes of life I find a haven there. - Unknown Author

Baking for the homeless

We are happy to announce our participation in a new community volunteer service with Mifflin Presbyterian Church. They will come on the 3rd Monday of every month to bake items with our residents and these items will then be donated to the homeless shelter. This is a great way to do some baking and be involved in a wonderful service in assisting our community who are in need. Thank you Mifflin Presbyterian Church for allowing us to be a part of this great service!

Deficiency-Free!

We are extremely proud of the results from our recent annual State survey as "Deficiency-Free". This basically means that we have fulfilled all of the state regulations in the hiring and training process, resident admission, resident care and state fire requirements. This is a significant accomplishment! We take great pride in providing excellent care, service and a one-of-a-kind lifestyle here at The Woodlands and are so happy to see it reflected in our annual survey. Just another reason why The Woodlands is a wonderful place to call home.

Special Thank You To ...

Kroger's on East Broad Street in Blacklick! We are extending a special THANK YOU to them again this year as they filled our home with over 300 Valentine's Day balloons. Every year they accept and encourage donations from all their patrons to donate the Valentine Mylar Balloons during the season of love. Our lobby, dining room and hallways were filled to the brim. Crystal, the floral manager plays a special part in making this happen each year - so a special thank you to her!
