Welcome Home!

Woodlands Retirement Community is a LifeCare community located in Huntington, West Virginia, catering to individuals aged 55 and above. It is situated on 171 acres of magnificent property, offering sweeping views of the surrounding hilltops and valleys. Our community is dedicated to providing peace of mind by focusing on three key aspects of living. Firstly, we promote wellness through an active, independent lifestyle and the companionship of close friends. Secondly, we offer spacious cottages and apartments and provide an array of services, events, and special amenities to create an unparalleled independent living experience. Finally, we ensure that every resident has access to onsite assisted living and memory support, should healthcare services ever be required.

Woodlands holds the distinction of being the only LifeCare community in the region. Residents who choose LifeCare have the security of knowing they can always stay in their Woodlands home, close to both old and new friends, even if their healthcare needs change and they outlive their financial resources.

Woodlands also accepts direct admissions into our Assisted Living residential program. Admission does not require prior independent living residency at Woodlands. We warmly welcome new members to our Assisted Living community on a private pay basis. If you have long-term care insurance coverage, your monthly fees may be fully or partially offset by the benefits of your policy (consult your insurance provider).

“One of the best decisions of my life.. I’m originally from the Nashville area, but after living and working in Huntington for 30 years, I developed strong ties to this community. So, when I retired from Marshall in 1999, I decided to move to Woodlands. It’s been wonderful having more opportunities to take advantage of the many amenities, programs and activities Woodlands offers its residents. I know most of the people, and some of them are even  my former students! There’s something day and night to keep our minds, bodies, emotional and spiritual selves going.”

Dot Hicks, Former Marshall University Golf Coach

“My wife and I decided that we wanted to downsize. It is a stress that we certainly don’t miss now that we are in such a relaxing environment here at Woodlands. It’s been a perfect fit for us. Today, when we get up  in the morning, all there is to do are the things that we want to do. It’s given us a real sense of freedom. Lifecare is an amazing benefit of Woodlands living, too. It gives us tremendous peace of mind to know that if our health changes we will never have to impose on our children. We know we’ll always have a great home – even if the day comes that we need Assisted Living or Memory care. Woodlands will be her to provide it. ”

Dan and Charlotte Ingam

Woodlands is a wonderful place to live. Now that I am fully retired, I have no worries. More importantly, our children have no worries. They know all my needs are being met here. Everything is so convenient. All my food is prepared and maintenance takes care of anything that needs to be repaired. There’s exercise class, yoga, lectures, book club, movies and all sorts of other entertainment to keep me involved and active. In fact, I have never been busier!

Marilyn Cohen

“The best way to describe my feeling since coming to Woodlands is an amazing sense of freedom and safety. Everything is taken care of, from great meals, to changing a light bulb, to being able to travel without having to worry about my home being secure while away. As an independent living resident, I can also attest to the quality of Woodlands assisted living services. The staff there provided my husband outstanding care during his illness. I’m thankful to live in such a beautiful environment surrounded by people who care about me. There’s no place I’d rather live.”

 Lisa Cooke

“John and I made the move to Woodlands last year, and our transition couldn’t have been smoother. It has been like coming home. My mother, who lived to be 102, was a longtime Woodlands resident. She loved it here, too! There are so many benefits to a community like this. We enjoy our beautiful apartment and live very active lives, surrounded by friends old and new. We have peace of mind knowing that if anything ever happens to our health, we will not only have great care here, we will always have a place we can call home.”

 Patty and John Anderson

“Woodlands is a place that feels like a big family. People are so friendly here, and it’s comforting to know that I’m surrounded by neighbors who check on me and who care. From the beginning, what has impressed me most is that Woodlands provides such a peaceful way to live. I don’t worry anymore about who’s going to mow my lawn or fix things around the house. Life here is stress-free, yet I still feel just like I did when I lived in my home. I remain as active as ever and maintain a healthy social life both here and with friends outside of Woodlands. It’s just a truly wonderful way live.”

 Mary Lue Light

“I like working at Woodlands because of the family atmosphere that exists between staff and all the residents. From an IT perspective, I’ve tried to do that by staying on top of technological advances. That has included laying fiber optics to ensure that the entire campus, from the main Wi-Fi connections for residents. It’s also included giving residents security knowing that our 24-hour response system will connect them to a nurse’s cell phone on campus within seconds if they need medical assistance. Life at Woodlands is a lot of fun, and I’m glad to be a part of it!”

 Richard Eid, Woodlands Director of Technology

“After a career of being a chef and running restaurants of my own, it’s been surprising to find how much fun it has been to be here at Woodlands. Woodlands is not only incredibly beautiful and professionally run, but there is a loving feeling projected here. My goal has been to take Woodlands to another level in food service with new and different approaches to developing menus and events. It gives me joy to give them comfort and a feeling of home through the services my department provides.”

Ron Smith, Woodlands Director of Dining Services
