Description

West Woods of Niles is a short term rehabilitation and long term care facility. When the facility went through a major renovation the owners decided to add areas where residents could relax outdoors. Many studies have shown that nature has a positive impact on health and healing. The property has multiple patios and a secure courtyard with colorful plantings for outdoor relaxation. A water feature and bench was placed in a peaceful spot for quiet time. Grasses, perennials and flowering shrubs flank the sign and front walk to create an inviting welcome.
