Memory Care Reviews for Windchime of Marin

February 28, 2013

By Belinda2

I visited this facility

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.

WindChime promotes independence for our residents, this includes providing adaptive utensils and tableware so that residents can feed themselves whenever possible.

We are a small, personal, and exclusively memory care community, so we are in frequent contact with loved ones. In addition, we offer family members the Sagely app, which they can download to their smartphone and receive daily or weekly digests and photos of resident activity.
