Memory Care Reviews for Windchime of Marin

I visited this facility

Windchime of Marin was very nice. The lobby was very warm and welcoming. They had beautiful views of Mt. Tam from the outdoor patio in the back. Everything was clean, well lit, warm, and inviting. The staff person who assisted me, Sheri, was lovely, very informed, warm, and caring. She introduced me to the residents as we walked around, and it was nice that they know the people. We talked to them when we walked by. They were very professional and very nice. They were getting ready to do some painting while I was there, but I did not actually see them painting. They seem to have a full calendar of activities available.

I visited this facility

I went to Windchime. It was fine. The rooms were lovely. They had a big dining room with nice linens and nice tissues. It looked really pretty. As far as I could tell, the atmosphere was good. I saw the calendar of activities. They were busy. They do a lot of things. They went on trips and gave them rides to the doctors. It was close to a hospital, which was probably less than 10 minutes away.

I thought Windchime of Marin was very nice. The staff seem adequate. It wasn't as modern or clean as the others, but it was more homey and it's a smaller facility. The food looked very good and there was a good variety and people can choose from different things so there was something for everyone.
