Independent Living Reviews for Wind Crest

October 20, 2017


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

We moved my father to Windcrest 3 years ago. There are some wonderful nurses who we absolutely love. However, after months of dad living here, we began to discover holes in the nursing system, orders not being followed, and increased cost at every turn they could find. The marketing department will tell you anything to make you sign the lease, but in the end, I am not pleased with what we have had to deal with as a family when we pay well over $11,000 per month for care. We have always been accommodating to requests from staff and have not been happy with their professionalism handling matters.

Wind Crest is a very large place. There are probably a thousand residents. It is very upscale and very luxurious. It is well maintained, relatively new, and very attractive. There are many activities. There's field trips, theater, and regular trips to Denver. There's a light rail very near the facility too. The staff who assisted me was very good. The community has about 5 or 6 dining areas and they all look first class.

This community is truly one of the best in Colorado. My family members and their friends are always involved in events and seem to be very happy. The staff are very friendly and welcoming--you can tell they are there for the right reasons. Not to mention, the restaurants serve great food with a lot of variety and healthy options! Can't wait to watch the community continue to grow

Wind Crest was new and beautiful. They had lots of programs for the residents. They had speakers come in and things like that. It was big and had more buildings. I thought they had everything that they could imagine. The staff was very friendly.

Wind Crest came highly regarded by some folks that we knew and some things that I read online. The cost was significantly more than other places, but it was an absolutely beautiful facility. My father has been there since early October. He has got a beautiful two-bedroom apartment that has a great view. It has two rooms on either side of the living room that are of the same size which both have very large, spacious bathrooms. They have physicians and audiologists, a weight room with weight strength training, a swimming pool, a rehab center, and exercise classes. There are two large beautiful lobbies with fireplaces. They have barber shops, laundry room facilities, and a huge, beautiful clubhouse. The meals are absolutely delicious and a different menu every night. They also have continuous snacks and fruits. We were just disappointed that dad didn’t have better orientation to what he was getting into when he came in, and he was feeling not as welcomed as he would have. We had a meeting with the administrator and social worker. Hopefully, the staff is better in tune with what he needs right now, and hopefully they're going to do a better job with that with other people who come in as well.

It's going to be a necessary move for me and my husband. We both have some health problems at the same time. Everybody was helpful during the tour. My husband has gall bladder surgery. He's not really eating very much, but I think they will soon to have a menu that's plain and will work for him.

Continuing Care Retirement Community Reviews for Wind Crest

This is a beautiful facility for worry free retirement. There is independent living as will as assisted living, skilled nursing, rehab and memory care. The location is convenient and the apartments are spacious. When my wife fell and broke her leg we pulled the emergency cord in our room and the EMT arrived in about 3 minutes and provided excellent care. Why 3 stars? Our apartment building was constructed with wood. Although we hear no noise from adjoining rooms there is the constant sound of footsteps from above that shakes our apartment. We did not expect this to be a problem in new construction. The other area of disappointment in my opinion is the food. I have heard from many longtime residents that the food used to be much better. I have asked if maybe it just seems that way like how we often talk about the good old days but they assure me things have changed and not for the better. After 11 months I have seen filet mignon maybe 4 times, lobster tail once, scallops one time, oysters (not very plump) twice, lamb chops or rack of lamb never. The menu in the main dining room changes daily but rotates on a schedule and becomes repetitive. The more "upscale" dining option menu is fairly limited and static with occasional item changes and one daily special. The meal plan included in the monthly fee forces you to eat at least 20 meals a month in these restaurants or forfeit the money. At this price level we expected better. In fact when we came to evaluate Wind Crest we ate braised lamb shanks and seared sea scallops to rival the finest restaurants. There is a new steakhouse "opening soon" that is supposed to be more upscale but we heard that back in 2015. I will be posting pictures of food served on so you can judge for yourself at

I liked the apartments at Wind Crest and its amenities. They seemed to be interested in possible residents. The place was clean, shiny, and bright. The rooms were big, bright, and airy with lots of windows.

Wind Crest was very beautiful and quite expensive. You tend to buy into it, but you can get 90% back and still have monthly fees. It had everything imaginable in quite a few buildings with everything covered with closed-in walkways, so you don’t have to go outside if you don’t want to. Its dining rooms were very upscale.

Wind Crest has a nice restaurant, and the entire facility is large. It just felt more like you are in a resort than in God’s waiting room, so to speak. The residents are probably in their 70s and 80s, but they’re still very healthy, and they were active. The facility is very clean, very bright, very active.

It was very nice. Wind Crest would be a great option although it was priced fairly high. The staff was extremely friendly. The rooms were spacious, very clean, and pretty impressive. The dining room looked clean and very well presented, and it was a very nice place to eat. The food smelled wonderful, and it looked good. There seemed to be quite a lot of staff that would take care of the residents. We saw classes like painting and a book club, and there were people playing volleyball in the pool. That was a premier place we looked at and would like, but it was out of our range.

I'm not old enough for Wind Crest. We probably would've moved into that one right away if I was old enough. You have to be 62. My husband is old enough, but I'm not yet. Everything was really nice. They just built a new building, so there are units available there now. Everything is clean, neat, and nice, and there are doctors on-site.

We have seen Wind Crest for the last five years. We talked to the people and decided it was a good place. I could not have any of the regular food because I had Celiac Disease. They had a staff in the kitchen that specifically prepared gluten-free food. Most of the places I checked did not have this and I needed gluten-free food only.
