I visited Fairwinds of Desert Point about two years ago. I ate there. The food was good. It was probably more of a home cooked meal. The place was very clean. The rooms looked good and inviting to me. The room was in good shape and neat.

Fairwinds is a quiet place. The people were very nice and helpful. It had a library and activities going on.

We went to Fairwinds-Desert Point, and we like it because it's closer to where we live now. The layout was pretty good and updated. The only thing is wrong, again, is we need to put our name on the waiting list. There are no vacancies. The staff has been very good.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
Fairwinds is a great place for both my parents. The staff is great. The rooms are big and roomy. They are very well kept. There's lots of activity to do. They have about anything you could want to do. Everybody is friendly and nice. And the facility is close to where we live, so that is one of the major concerns.

I had a friend who was over at Fairwinds. I was very impressed with this place. There's a lady there that I happen to call on frequently. Her apartment was really lovely with a mountain view. She was perfectly content with the people there, with the meals, the services, andthe program that was offered to her there. I think it's a really lovely place to live.
I had a very good relationship with the staff while I was making my visit there. They're excellent. My other friend who was living there was in assisted living. They thought it was a lovely place to live. The ambiance of the place, the staff, and the management were excellent. I was very impressed with it myself, and I thought perhaps I could consider that in another 10 years. I've been told that the food has been very satisfying. The apartments are lovely. I think it was built a while back, so they're a bit larger than the more modern ones. My friend was allowed to have a cat. She actually had two cats at one time.
