I have lived here for about a year and a half. I have enjoyed it immensely. Very friendly people live and work here. I recommend it for people 65 years old and older. We get three meals a day plus snacks. We get activities that are great. We have exercise programs for 45 minutes at least 2 times a week. There is also bingo and occasionally we will get entertainment from the community. That is great and very enjoyable. We have sing a longs and bell choir. During the holidays, the staff is wonderful in surprising us with different kinds of activities that we don't do on a regular basis. We also have someone come in to do chair yoga with us. To me, it is a great place to live. The staff is very helpful.

My wife and I have lived at heritage woods for a couple of years and we are very happy with the decision. We made to move here. The entire staff is so helpful, kind and friendly. We have various activities to enjoy, three meals a day, housekeeping once a week, and nurses and CNAs to help with our medical needs. A great place to live.

Heritage woods of Charleston is a tremendous place to live. I have lived here a little over two years and couldn’t be happier with my living situation. The one bedroom apartment I live in is just the right size. I receive three meals a day, weekly housekeeping, and help from CNA’s and staff. Everyone is so kind and helpful.

My aunt lives there and walking through the halls i smelled strong odors of urine. Lots of complaints about the food every one says this place needs alot better cook. And a different menu. The place is beautiful inside. The rooms are small but livable. Overall they do have a lot of fun things to do. Field trips and game tournaments

Whenever you visit Heritage Woods it is always full of laughter and life. The residents are always out and about engaging in different activities and giving the nursing and dietary staff a hard time and run for their money. The staff does an excellent job of assisting the residents with day to day activities that enable them to maintain their independence. Several of the staff members go above and beyond every day to make sure the residents are happy and well cared for.

This is the nicest facility I have had the pleasure of working at. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the residents are very kind and welcoming. The food is good and there are always activities for the residents. Every resident I've talked to really enjoys living at Heritage Woods in Charleston.

I have visited the facility many times and have visited a few others. This facility is by far the best valued for what they have to offer. Often times those of us who need it cannot afford these assisted living places but this facility makes an effort to provide the most affordable care there is in the state. And I cannot commend them enough for that. I have watched the facility flourish in the past few years. Staff is warm and caring. The facility looks clean and welcoming. Residents here are happy and as other reviewers mentioned I have never seen residents neglected and screaming around. The property is nestled away in the woods and gives it a very calming presence away from the bustles of busy life. The occasional sight of pigs and roosters are definitely a bonus to this wonderful facility. I would have no hesitation moving here myself for my care when time comes...

I encourage anyone looking for senior housing to come down to the Altenheim and see what makes this not for profit organization a special place. The staff care very much about the quality of care and service for every resident, every day. 5-Star Quality.

My first impression of Oceanside Hawaii was that it was a hidden oasis, and the more I learn about Oceanside the more accurate this first impression becomes. The driveway leading up from Kamehameha Highway is framed by towering trees on either side, and as you round the bend the mountain view takes your breath away and gives you the impression that you are entering a sacred place. The whole facility, from the Front Lobby to the rooms, is set up for comfort, class and accessibility. There are flowers and trees and plants everywhere you look and the atmosphere is fresh and inviting. The staff seem to carry permanent loving smiles on their faces, and I have seen them bend over backwards to accommodate our Residents and their family members. The Food Service Department is incredible, serving up a wide variety of delicious dishes, throwing amazing feasts for the Holidays and doing all that they can to satisfy even the most peculiar appetite. My favorite thing about Oceanside, however, is simply how joyful and lively the Residents here are. Laughing and joking and interacting, going on outings and thriving as they live out their Golden Years.

We were so nervous about Mom moving to Heritage Woods but now we are positive we did the right thing. She eats better and gets exercise everyday. She also smiles a lot more.

My mom has been a resident here for over 2 years. I dropped in for a surprise visit today, and they were having a cooking demo with the new head Chef (I do not know his name!). He has knowledge, skill, and not only loves to cook, he has a passion for making a difference with his professional training in the kitchen! He cooked an amazing French chicken dish, and explained every step, peppered with interesting facts about different origins of cooking styles, and ways to tweak the flavors, etc. He shared his background, and clearly loves people and loves sharing his love of cuisine. He demonstrated a desire to make the residents dining experience special and unique- by asking them questions about changes they might like to try. I was BLOWN AWAY by his professionalism and enthusiasm! It just makes me that much more sure (if that is possible!), that I found the perfect place for my mom!

Wonderful place for our mom. Meals are wonderful and employees are all so nice and caring. So many good people there also. Mom has her independence and privacy, but all she has to do is call and help is right there. It was a little confusing for her at first because it was such a change in environment..... But she is doing great now. So grateful there is a place so nice for our mom to spend her final years.

My Mother in Law is a resident and she is really enjoying making new friends and having the opportunity to socialize; and at the same time having her own private space for when she wants to be alone. All of the staff are very attentive to the needs of the residents so I feel assured that my Mother-In-Law is well taken care of.
