I am a friend or relative of resident
My older sibling has been a resident of Wind Crest Nursing Center for six years. She has had nothing but excellent care since she arrived. As a guardian, I have monthly meetings with the staff to discuss her care, diet, medications, etc. I have never one time felt she was being neglected or treated in any way except with respect and caring. I would recommend this facility to any person who has a friend or relative with special needs or rehabilitation.
I visited this facility
Ever since I was a little girl I can remember tagging along with my mom to patient's homes and different assisted living facilities aound the area I live. I've definitely seen my fair share of nursing homes and assisted living facilities, so when I walked into Windcrest with my mom her first day at her new job, I was in awe. There was no order, no rules on conduct being followed, or enforced, let alone any attention whatsoever being paid to the patients. Anybody walking in could clearly see what a chaotic mess this place was, my Mom took the job hoping to help fix the place and maybe she's capable of miracles, we'll see. I'll start with the bathroom, which is supposed to be a public restroom for patient's visitors and family, doctors, nurses, it was the entire staff's restroom. I walk in to a toilet full and clogged with a bunch of you dont even want to know, there was no soap, no bag in the trashcan, and the mirror so blurry I could barely see my reflection. What kind of impression do you think THAT gave off? Next, I go walk around the place with my mom and try to see as many patients faces as I can, I volunteer and help my Mom alot so these were probably faces I'd be seeing often. We go down to the end of B-Hall where the younger patients were kept, and theres a poor young boy in a wheelchair just sobbing and crying and he was terribly upset. My mom asked him what was wong, he had cerebral palsy come to find out so he was a little hard to understand, but he just wanted his ball. He has a geen ball that is one of his only souces of entetainment and he said it was lost that he asked three nurses to help him look. I didnt doubt this because I had witnessed him ask one nurse when I first walked in. My mom told him we'd go find his ball for him, and she walks in the nursing station, looks around, and bam, finds his ball. Sitting right there in plain view, the nurses didnt even glance around. He was ecstatic nonetheless when we returned his ball but I just find that so cruel for a poor child to be so rudely ignored, he's not even grown let alone close to being able to fend for himself. All in all, I dont think Ive ever stepped foot in a more unsanitary, poorly ran, chaotic, stressful assisted living/nursing facility in my entire life. I pointed out every little thing I noticed to my Mom, hopefully the place can get some kind of order and maybe even be a fun place to live, and work!
I visited this facility
My first visit to the Windcrest assistant living faciility was with a friend of mine to visit one of her other friends. When we entered the facility we were greeted by two workers who were very friendly and asked us if we needed assistance. The staff members then escorted us to the cafeteria where we waited for Joe to accompany us. Lunch was then served. I was very surprised at the selection for lunch. From past exoeriences in the nursing home setting, I have noticed that most of them do not provide their residences with many choices. On this particular day, we had our choice of chicken or fish, green beans or potatoes, butter roll or biscuit, and tea or lemonade. Once finished with lunch, we then walked to the main foyer were the home had offered a knitting class for any of the residences that wanted to participate. Once done, we then went to Joe's room to converse with one another. The room was neat and clean and was also very spacious and comfortable. I would reccommend this facility to anyone that is in search of such. They provide residences with a wide variety of activities and the staff treats them like family. Aside from that, the elderly residences at Windcrest are able to keep their sense of dignity due to the compassionate staff members.
