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.

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.
