I visited this facility
My husband and I went to Fairwinds quite a while ago when they had just opened up a new wing to see what the rooms were like because we were thinking we might want to go to a retirement home sometime. We had lunch there. And then I went there a few weeks ago when I was looking around for my sister-in-law. It was very nice and very high end. I think they are the best in Fresno. They have an outdoor swimming pool, they have exercise program, and they also have an in-house travel agent to help trips and transportation. They have get togethers and activities every day.

Fairwinds was very nice but very expensive. My daughter lives around that area and that's another reason why we visited this place. The facility itself was very nice and beautiful. The people there seemed very nice as well. You can have your own apartment there. They did have a lot of stuff to do for their residents like play cards, see movies, etc. They can take you to dinner or take you to shop or whatever. I noticed people playing cards when I visited and they had all kinds of things to do, but I have my social friends and I don't really do those things. Their apartments were off of the big lobby there, but not all of them. Their apartments were small. They are sufficient but for what they cost, they're about the size of a hotel suite. One apartment has a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen and a small eating area. And at that time, they said they only have one-bedroom apartments. Overall it was a very nice facility but they could improve on having a yard, e.g., for pets and that their apartments should be a little bigger.

My grandmother and grandfather moved to Fairwinds about 2 years ago. The first thing that drew me in was how clean and well kept the whole community was. Once inside it only got better. Everyone is very friendly and always there to help. I remember the first time I visited them after they moved in. We ate at the resturant and the waiter knew my grandparents by name. It felt really good that they enjoyed it there and everybody treated them well.

I am a past client of this provider
Snobby hotel-like facility with unfriendly people. The facility is top-notch but the staff and the residents (at least a significant number) pride them selves on the "hotel-like" atmosphere. We wanted a community with friendly people, not a hotel full of anonymous guests. My mother lived there for 6 months before we moved to The Windham.
