Sentara Woodview has been an active participant in the life of the community since 1983 and is home to 180 residents needing either rehabilitation or long term care.
Philosophy of Care
We believe that our residents and their families deserve to be treated with respect, dignity and compassion and we are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care possible.
Our staff practices person-centered and resident-directed care and recognizes that each resident is an individual with his or her own life story, beliefs and needs and is entitled to live a safe and comfortable life as independently as possible.
We recognize the importance of quality-of-life in successful aging and believe that the promotion of concepts and beliefs of wellness are critical to aging successfully. This challenges us to see the individual's health status through the eyes of wellness instead of relating it to illness or disability. This approach to promoting the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well-being of the individual requires a collaborative effort among the resident, the family members, the community and the healthcare providers. Hence, all of these individuals become partners in promoting a high quality of care and quality of life.
Sentara Woodview includes four separate neighborhoods, each with its own staff.
Hummingbird Lane, Magnolia Trail and Butterfly Path are home to sixty residents each. The neighborhoods include both semi-private and private rooms.
Seasons, an assisted living community, is home to 18 residents with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Our safe, secure and comfortable environment features living spaces, private bedrooms and outdoor areas designed to enhance independence. Our special memory care community is of the household design with each room placed around and in view of shared living spaces. Issues such as natural light, space and room design have been carefully considered with comfort and safety in mind. For more specific information about Seasons, click here.
Meals are served in the bright, cheerful dining room where residents and their guests dine in style at tables set with linens and china. All meals are prepared with special attention given to likes, dislikes and dietary restrictions. Our dietitians works closely with residents and their families to insure a pleasurable dining experience.
