My grandmother had had multiple falls before she ended up going to Windward Gardens in Camden, Maine. At first she was not excited about this and, with the generation she grew up with, felt we were "committing" her. I'd say that within about a week she had grown to love it there. The staff was always so warm and welcoming and she quickly found that she had found a new home and group of friends. Their shuttle bus made her capable of continuing to go on shopping trips and going to church "“ but now she got to go on these trips with her friends. They held activities throughout each day, including group exercise, wine and cheese and various craft activities. At last she felt safe in the place she was living, knowing that people were always around if she needed help, and with everything being handicap accessible, she had less fear of falling down. We all quickly grew fond of her roommate especially, who grew to be part of the family, just as many of the staff members did. The last Christmas I spent at Windward Gardens was the best Christmas I have ever had. Her friends stopped by and the staff gave us a nice private dining room to share a family dinner. In my grandmother's final days, she was moved upstairs to the medical unit, where sadly, she ended her days. The staff upstairs couldn't have been more supportive and caring during those last days "“ compassion was shown during this time that I will never forget. I have many fond memories with my grandmother at Windward Gardens and would recommend it to anybody looking for a senior care facility.
