I am a friend or relative of resident

Very pleased with the excellent care my mom has had at Wynwood. Staff is attentive and go out of their way to attend to her needs. I am always updated with any changes and her doctor is always in communication with me about her health status. I have always found her clean and well dressed and happy with her life there. I have friends that pop in to visit her and they have given me excellent feedback. Mom says she enjoys the food and has even added weight . She has made friends with some other people living there and has her own social circle. Lots to do there and a great front porch!

I recently put my loved one in this facility for short-term care. I am very sad to report that the care here is disappointingly poor. My loved one needed much more care than this facility was able to provide. But beyond that there was a lack of communication among the care givers, medications were missed or well over 2 hours late. She was not bathed for over 5 days despite constant requests. The food was extremely poor. Even the long-term residents warned me of the problems and the food. There are multiple issues that were shocking and highly worrisome. On a good note, I think they are trying. I think the facility is clean and attractive. But the care for the individual is extremely poor. The focus seems to be on the bottom-line and not on the wellbeing of the resident. I could not recommend this facility at all.

We have my mother-in-law at Wynwood of Chapel Hill, and so far we are doing well. It's been a month now since she's been there. We chose this facility because we felt that the food was a cut above everywhere else, and they had a very active itinerary compared to some other places. Everybody is extremely friendly. The administrative staff were very accommodating. The rooms were much nicer than the rooms that I saw in other facilities. They have different activities, like they have religious services, they have arts and crafts, and they also have different card games.

My mother is in Wynwood Of Chapel Hill. There was a good feeling when I walked in. It is clean, welcoming, and very friendly. I'm happy with the facility as it is. I definitely recommend Wynwood. I like best the staff and their care. Their work attitude is great. They are really responsive and very attentive to my mom. They seem generally pleasant and happy. The facility is very clean. It is very well maintained. It is very pleasant, and it smells good. Activities - so far so good. They have a lot of things planned every day, though it is a little slow on the weekend.

It was a very nice place. I like it for myself but it was not suitable for my aunt. She needed more nursing care. The staff was very nice. The lady who showed me around was very gracious.

Wynwood was a nice place. They're pretty close to where we live. However, they're not going to work for us; the room that was available at that time was at the end of the hall. It seemed like it was a long walk for my parents to go to the activities.

We toured Wynwood of Chapel Hill and we find the place beautiful. They have a classy and medieval look. We love the place. They have all the things that you will need. The residents look really happy and I had a chance to speak with one of the residents. She's been there for almost 10 years now. She said she really love living in Wynwood. It shows with all the people who live there. This is one of the greatest assisted living facilities that we visited.

My father's oldest brother has always been a very active man and now that he is in his 80s he needed to find an assisted living facility where he could live life on his own terms. His only concession to the aging process was his mobility. Arthritis had robbed him of his vigor and freedom of movement, yet he prided himself on the fact that he could still do a lot of things on his own; he just needed some help with other tasks of daily life. Wynwood at Chapel Hill has provided him with a home and new life that he adores. We have visited monthly during the year that he has been a resident and we are so happy with his new living arrangement. He had just returned from a shopping trip to Trader's Joe when we made our last visit to see him. Of course he had to update us on the yoga classes that he is now taking. In fact this exercise program has even helped lessen the pain caused by his arthritis. Each day the seniors at Wynwood have a list of activities in which they can participate if they choose to do so. Meals are simply wonderful and the cooking staff always uses the freshest ingredients possible. In my opinion, these meals are better prepared and tastier than those dishes being served at a majority of local restaurants. I have eaten the grilled fish, roast chicken and perfectly cooked asparagus- and cannot say enough complimentary things about the talented chefs. These individuals can make low calorie, low salt recipes taste positively wonderful. My uncle has never been a fan of low sodium meals, but even he has now been won over by the healthy, tasty meals that he gets to enjoy each day. Kudos to this facility and each staff member!
