Fairwinds is very luxurious. It has nice, big rooms. They have 2 big meals, and the meals seemed very nice. The menu looked very good. The dining area is very nice. They have full kitchens in every room. They do exercise in the dining room, so you have to go to their classes. They have a pretty full calendar. They have tours and discussion groups, so that is nice.

Independent Living Reviews for Fairwinds - Ivey Ranch

I am/was a resident of this facility

We’re living at Fairwinds-Ivey Ranch. It’s an excellent place. They have an extremely capable staff. We have so many activities. One of the things that we enjoy is bocce ball and Wii bowling. They have a way of playing bocce ball indoors also for those who don’t want to go out. We have a worship service on Sunday. We have a Scripture study on Monday nights. We have many exercise-type classes; one called body conditioning is rather strenuous. We have a balance class that I enjoy. We have Texas Hold’em and bingo. We have a discussion group, and currently, we’re having a presentation on the constitution. There is a music therapy-type class. There are several art classes and flower arranging. We have a book club that I belong to. My husband and I have a 2-bedroom, 1-bath apartment. They have many different configurations of apartments. There are studios, 1-bedrooms, 2-bedrooms with 2-bath, and different sizes and configurations of all of those.

The rooms at Fairwinds - Ivey Ranch were not very nice. The building was too small, the hallways were narrow, and it was not easy to get in and out of.

The tour at the Fairwinds - Ivey Ranch was fantastic and very well done. Out of all the places that we toured, I would have preferred this place. The place was wonderful and clean, and I spent time talking with the residents. I liked that there was a coffee and pastry bar downstairs. Everything felt very open. It was the maintenance guy who actually walked up and helped me go to the person I had the appointment with. Sheila gave me the tour, was very attentive, and explained things very well. The apartment she showed me was great. The woman that was there was very sweet and very kind, and I had a very good conversation with her. They had a gym, a movie theater, and a library.

I visited Fairwinds. I was very impressed and everything was delightful, but the only thing I didn't like was the price. I was surprised at what they offered, such as a laundry room where I could do my own laundry, and I thought it was a very nice room, something I felt good going into. I liked the fact that they had a beautician there. You don't feel like you have to leave the facility in order to make yourself presentable. The location was nice with buildings close by, but you looked down on trees which made it seem like you're not quite close to civilization. Everybody there was extremely friendly and nice. The biggest problem is that they don't have any rooms available.

I visited Fairwinds Ivey Ranch. They’re outstanding. Nobody can beat them. The staff is so caring, thoughtful, on top of everything, and goes above and beyond. They invited us for a Thanksgiving dinner, and the staff had brought things for my dog and packed up a whole dinner for my husband and myself. They are just magnificent. The place is absolutely beautiful. We have visited a couple of apartments, and they’re all magnificent. The food is very good.

We went to Fairwinds Ivey Ranch. It was a really nice facility, but we thought it was too small for our needs. It had a very small physical fitness center, and we were more interested in larger facilities. They were enlarging the dining room, which was very nice. The service was great.

I liked Fairwinds - Ivey Ranch. The staff was very friendly and very competent, and the facility was well located. I get my medical care through the Veterans Administration and that big new Veterans Administration clinic is fairly close by, which was a plus for me. I visited on a Thursday afternoon during a happy hour. I like to dance, and there was a little dancing. It was a fun visit. I liked the place due to the attitude and performance of the staff as well as the facility itself.

Everything is great at Fairwinds. Their food is like restaurant, so you order off a menu. It’s well-maintained, and the people are very nice.

The Fairwinds was a little too hustle bustle and noisy. They were going to be starting some remodeling, so that might have contributed to it. It just didn't seem as settled down as the other place was. I had lunch with the coordinator, and it was very good. She was very nice. There were sections that you couldn't go to because they were starting remodeling. It was more expensive, and the parking was very difficult. It was just too noisy and too much activity going on. I want some activity, but I don't want it so busy that it causes confusion.

We saw Fairwinds in Ivey Ranch. They were really nice. It needed to be updated. It was very expensive to live there. Their rooms were too small, but the tenants seemed happy. The staff was so friendly.

Fairwinds was very nice, but it was much more expensive than I could afford. The person who accommodated me was very professional, helpful, and nice. The rooms were like the others that I have visited. They were OK and enough for one person. The place was nice and clean. They have activities like bingo and some other games. The people looked happy. It was a friendly place. The reason why I cannot give them a high rating is because they were on a busy street, and they did not have a garden or a backyard for walking. They were right in the middle of the traffic, and because of that, I would not go in there.

I have friends that live here at Fairwinds. It was very nice, and I was very impressed. The staff was very nice to me. They showed me several different apartments. We had lunch, and it was very nice. I was very impressed. I was impressed with the building, the food, and with everybody in general. The apartments were adequate. They were small but adequate for one person. The dining area is very nice. It is a large dining room, and they have plenty of help. There is a nice chef that prepares your food. They have a lot of activities. I did not take part in any of them but I saw several. I saw their calendar, and they have things going on every day of the week. There is no reason to be bored there. I have already recommended it to others. The people there are all very nice.

Mom is in Fairwinds-Ivey Ranch, and she is very happy there. She is in a 2bedroom apartment. The staff here is phenomenal, and they’re very attentive to her needs. She has medication and standby assistance for showering, and the staff is very attentive to her. I live about 40 miles away, and there have been a couple of times that I have not been able to reach her by phone, and they immediately come up to her apartment and check on her. She is socially engaged; she has two very good friends she plays cards with and socialize with. They have a good variety of food offerings. There are three meals served during the day, and she can enjoy 2/3 of the meals since that’s part of her care plan. They know the residents on a first name basis; there is very personal care. The building itself is beautiful, landscaping is to perfection, and it’s well maintained. There is limited parking for the residents. There’s a health and wellness facility, a computer lab, and there is a spa if they need to have a bath. It’s a very good facility.

Fairwinds - Ivey Ranch is assisted living. You get your meals, your laundry is done, the maintenance and cleaning; everything is all done for you. They had nice sized rooms. I'd definitely give it a top rating – a five.

I visited Fairwinds-Ivey Ranch. They had a bus that took you around and meals prepared for the residents. The living quarters were quite small and there were no balcony. The staff were nice to me.

Fairwinds is in a great location and it's close to where we live. The environment looks good, it's clean, and it's just 10 years old or less. I thought it was really upper class. It looked like a Marriott Hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They answered all my questions and returned my phone calls. I thought they were very helpful.

I thought this environment was great after visiting a handful of different homes where we could possibly put my grandfather in, this one really shot out at us as soon as we walked through the doors. We were greeted by some of the staff and got a free tour, that was completely unplanned. The people working there were extremely generous which wasn't really the case for ALL the other places we visited. We also had the opportunity to go and chat with some of the other folks that had already been living there, we ran into a couple that had been there for nearly five years whom claimed they "LOVED!" the home, and best of all is the food. I was compelled to try it, so I made my way to the cafeteria of course. They had quite an extensive menu, which I thought was perfect for my picky grandfather, he'd love it here I thought, and the best part of the whole thing, was the area in which it was located. It was just 3 miles from my house, walking distance if need be, I make sure to visit him once a week now, and he's loving every minute in that place.
