It has been a little over four months since my wife and I moved into a cottage in Windsor Point. This was after three years of planning for the move while doing our “homework” researching facilities in the greater Raleigh area.
The planning and research paid off – big time. We love it here! The residents are very cordial making the transition into our new community very easy. It’s like a big loving family. The staff too, can’t do enough for you, not just while you move in, but every day. It is important to note that much of the staff has been in place a long time.
What do we like about Windsor Point besides the residents and staff? It is important to please the stomach and the meals certainly do that. There are several entrees and several side dishes for each meal. The menu changes every day, week, and month. There are activities scheduled during the month, some on-site and others a short Windsor Point bus ride away. The area has much to offer in the way of shopping, churches, dining, and services.
Very important to us is that Windsor Point is dog and cat friendly. We would not be here if our pets were not welcome.
What about the apartments and cottages? They are well built and up to date. Renovations often occur when a residence changes hands. In our case all carpeting and flooring was replaced as well as microwave and refrigerator. Granite counter tops were installed in the kitchen and both bathrooms. Every room was repainted. We even had a doorway removed and a new wall installed. Truly amazing response from Windsor Point.
If a problem occurs, call maintenance, they will come out and resolve the problem, no charge. We were very surprised to learn that included in the monthly fees are electricity, gas, water, garbage, recycling, and sewer. You pay only for cable, telephone, and any other extras you contract for.
It is a great relief knowing you have a plan and options if you get sick or need help with everyday tasks. Windsor Point maintains several levels of health care offerings. No need to search for a facility if a need suddenly arises. One spouse might live unassisted in a cottage or apartment while the other spouse is in health care. We do not need healthcare right now but having a plan brings much peace of mind.
