Woodland Pond at New Paltz

Woodland Pond is a not-for-profit, premier Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), nestled beneath the shoulder of the breathtaking Shawangunk Ridge, tailored exclusively for those aged 62 and older and catering to a diverse group of accomplished individuals with varied interests and a zest for life. Celebrating its 11th anniversary, Woodland Pond has been home for more than 1,500 retirees and remains the only CCRC in the upper-Hudson Valley. Its Life Care program allows residents to enjoy retirement in an inspiring and supportive environment, with access to a full spectrum of the highest rated supportive care options, if ever needed. Woodland Pond has earned the coveted 5-star rating for Medicare and Medicaid Services annually since 2014 and is the nation’s only CCRC to be named a leader in LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign since 2018.

Why Woodland Pond? Our mission says it best. “Opportunity. Care. Connections.” Three simple words that say so very much about what life at Woodland Pond provides. Woodland Pond builds on a set of simple, fundamental values to ensure that the lives our residents lead are rich and fulfilling — personal engagement; communication and transparency; accountability for our actions and responsibility for our choices; person centered care; a commitment to actively fostering personal growth. Woodland Pond offers all of this in a safe environment of dignity, honesty, ethical integrity, inclusivity, and respect. And all of this is enlivened by the natural beauty and cultural richness of the Hudson Valley. The residents, staff, family, and friends of Woodland Pond embrace life, and show everyone that crosses their thresholds exactly what it means to be experiencing retirement at its best.
