Visits from family members and friends are encouraged and often serve an important role in maintaining the emotional well-being of our residents. Family members and friends are also welcome to participate in our activity programs (see our Calendar of Events).
There are no set visiting hours at Woodridge, although the best time to call on residents is between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. For security purposes the front door is locked after 8:00 in the evening. Please use the telephone located in the front vestibule to identify yourself and a staff member will let you in.
Dining at Woodridge
Visitors are welcome to join residents for meals. The visitor’s meal may be bought in the cafeteria located on the ground floor and brought to the resident’s dining area, or a guest tray may be ordered, to be delivered with the resident’s meal. There is a charge for the guest tray. To order one, please contact the Business Office by 10:00 a.m. for dinner and 3:00 p.m. for supper.
The private dining room and other areas may be reserved for families to have meals together or for other private gatherings. Contact the Business Office to make a reservation.

Taking Patients Out
Everyone likes to go out. Our residents enjoy going for rides and out to dinner, parties, church or shopping as much as anyone else. Even overnight and extended visits are possible under certain circumstances. Preparations need to be made to ensure a successful outing. Please give the nurse in charge advance notice if there are plans for a trip outside of the nursing home.
Woodridge and the entire CVMC campus are non-smoking facilities. This policy extends to all indoor and outdoor areas.

Well-behaved pets are welcome guests! Please bring a copy of vaccination records to the front office to be kept on file. All pets must be secured on a leash and may not visit in the dining room during meals.
