I visited this facility

I toured Westwind Memory Care. They had a lot of activities. There was a lot going on that was interesting for the people. Like they had flower arranging going on, and people were flower arranging, and then in another room they had a cultural event that was going on the television, like a symphony or something, and I thought those were nice. I think that would be entertaining for my husband. He could sit and listen to the music or he could participate in some sort of craft like that. I thought that was nice because that was more than what was happening in the smaller places. The room looked nice. Each had their own bathroom. And then they explained to me that if he shared, it would be a little less expensive, also if he chose a room that was next to some kind of heating system or something in the building that makes a worrying noise that bothers some people, but because he has hearing loss of 75 percent, that it would be acceptable to place him there, so that would be a way if he could get one of those rooms, that it would be a little less expensive. But then they warned me that the prices were going to go up after the New Year because of inflation and everything. So it's quite pricey, and that's one of the factors I'm looking at since we're paying for it out of pocket, and we don't have any long-term care insurance. However, it was overall positive. It was good. If money were no object, it would be an appropriate place. The person who took me around was fine. I had an appointment with a different person, but he didn't show up, so she stepped in at the last minute, because apparently he had forgotten. They looked for somebody to give me a tour, and so she came. She wasn't quite prepared, but she still gave me a good tour. The place was very clean. There were no odors or scents that were unpleasant, and the layout was nice. It's specifically designed for memory care patients, so it's like two different areas, but they're both similar in how they're laid out.

My mom moved into Westwind Memory Care. We chose it because it just seemed like it had the right kind of environment and a smaller amount of people that live there together. One of the things we like about them as well, is the staff. They're friendly and helpful. They seem like they enjoy their jobs and that they kind of cared about the people that live there. My mom loves the food. I've had meals there and the food is delicious. They have a whole activity scheduled. They have lots of stuff they do. The facility is brand new, maybe four or five years old. It's very clean, very nice, and very open. The value for the money seems good and we're happy with it.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My aunt has been living in Westwind Memory Care for more than a month now. She's very content and happy with the place. It's a very nice and new community with a nice layout, and she has her own individual apartment space with a bathroom. She pays a little bit more than in other places but the prices are not very bad. The staff has been very fine, and we're very happy with them. We feel like they do a lot to keep their residents entertained, they give them things to do and keep the place fairly lively. So we're very pleased that we have found it. My aunt doesn't really need tremendous care but the extra care is there if my aunt needs it, but they kind of let her be. It's a nice place and we felt that they're outstanding so we're glad to have a room. Her room is more like a studio with a full bath but no kitchen facility. They have a general kitchen area and they can have snacks whenever they like, they just have to ask. They also get their meals prepared 3 times a day. They have entertainment there and music, and the staff goes out of their way to plan activities and things and try to keep the residents stimulated. It's a very secure community. My aunt even said that she is not happy with her condition but she's very content. The staff was really helpful, courteous and friendly and they do their job even though they have lots of things juggling all the time. They may not be able to stop and hold your hand every time, but they are very kind and you could see that they do their job with kindness and respect. The food is prepared with concern but it's basically just a meal, not like when you go out to a restaurant.

Westwind Memory Care was really new and nice. It was a good place. The staff was super competent and nice, and the rooms were brand new. They didn't have an outside area that people could walk around in which was one of the drawbacks, but they had a lot of outside activities that came in.

Provider Response

Westwind Memory Care was fabulous, but I could not afford it. It was beautiful and brand new, so everything was fresh and clean. The activities seemed really engaging and good for their mind and brain activity. They did cooking with the residents. It looked like a wonderful place. There was a lot of room for residents to walk around and mingle with each other.

Provider Response

Westwind Memory Care is a very good place. I'm very happy with Mom being there. They're taking good care of her. It's a new place that's very well laid out and designed. They have good staffing who are very close to the people. There are no long hallways.

Provider Response

Mike, thank you for choosing Westwind Memory Care for your mom. I appreciate that you took a moment to write a review and to read that your mom is taken care of, and you are happy. Our teams primary focus is the loving care of residents and I will share your comments with all of our staff. We agree that long hallways are not ideal. If we can be of any assistance, please let us know - Sincerely, Karen | Executive Director
