Assisted Living Reviews for The Windsor of Lakewood Ranch

I am a friend or relative of resident

My parents were residents for about a year. In the beginning when they didn't need much care it was very good. Over time, things went downhill. I believe the facility is short staffed and the staff they have don't appear to be well trained. I think they are probably not well paid either. Weekend help is particularly bad. They did a survey and I gave feedback but nothing was done. There are a few aides who are very knowledgeable and really care about their residents, but most are stretched too thin. Their focus is mostly on cost. They charge for everything, including rubber gloves. What summed it up for me was when I went to turn the keys in and I was only asked "You are paid up, aren't you?" They had a very expensive 10 year anniversary party and it would have been better if they spent the money on staff education and pay. The whole experience ended up being disappointing for my parents.

I visited this facility

There is a place in Lakewood Ranch that I liked. It was The Windsor of Lakewood Ranch, and it was very nice. I would have moved my mother there if I had the time to do that. They have new rooms that opened up. They were larger with more space for friends and family to visit. It was a larger room with a little bit more storage, and they were very nice. I was very impressed because it was much like the size of room that she had when she was in Kansas. There were some people that were lounging and playing some cards when I visited. They all seemed to be quite happy. When you see that, it makes you feel like your loved ones have the same opportunity to integrate. They'll feel like they have the freedom to do their own personal thing. The way that it was laid out had some kind of preparation to it.

The Windsor is beautiful. It’s one minute from work and four minutes from home. I feel good going there. He is watching movies at night. I am happy with the facility and the staff. They are all fabulous to all of the residents.

I have a relative who lives in this facility and absolutely loves it. Mom came from out of town and I was worried about her being the "newbie". The entire staff and residents made her feel welcome immediately. It is obvious that here is terrific team spirit in the building and dedication to the residents. The leadership team has a great amount of tenure, as does a lot of the front line workers. There is a "happy" atmosphere in the whole building. Residents are all very complimentary of the staff (which I checked out before moving mom in). I went over training with the sales director, and Legend goes above and beyond in making sure the staff knows how to take care of the elderly. The inside of the facility is pristine, no smells, no dust bunnies. The executive director knows all the residents, staff and family members by name. This is one of the best decisions I ever made for my mom. When my turn comes ~ I'm moving in!!!

On the surface, the WIndsor appears to be a wonderful facility. However, the staff turn over, lack of training, lack of supervision of patients, lack of heart is difficult to comprehend.More money is spent on fancy marketing dinners and less money on patient care while the residents are alacarte charged for many services which they still do not receive. CHeck out the number of ambulance calls for falls because no one answered the call buttons.

Provider Response

We appreciate you bring this to our attention. Services are tailored to the individual needs of each resident and this is designed to ensure that residents are not charged for services they don’t require. Please give us a call so we can better understand your concerns and work toward a solution. We look forward to hearing from you.

The Windsor is terrible; they lost his hearing aid and glasses, and they’re not brushing his teeth. He fell down and hurt his hips, but they didn’t know about it. Every week it’s something else, and it’s a nightmare. His room is awful. The food is terrible.

Provider Response

We are sorry you are having a bad experience. We’ve been serving senior adults for over 10 years and we are dedicated to providing quality services and housing. Please contact us at 941-907-9177 so we can address your concerns.

Windsor of Lakewood Ranch is an impressive community, but again, very expensive. It looks very appealing, very clean and well taken care of. The staff who gave me the tour knew what she was talking about and she knew how to give a good tour.

The Windsor of Lakewood was absolutely beautiful. It just did not meet my in-laws' needs. They needed a 2-bedroom suite, and they only offered one. But it was beautiful. It's absolutely gorgeous and very well maintained. It's brand new. It looked like they had great activities. We talked to some of the residents there, and they were really happy there. And they had lots of views.

Windsor of Lakewood Ranch is the one I like most. I just like its ambience. My first impression is that it was very nice and very upscale. Also my brother and sister thought it's a very good facility. My sister-in-law, who's a nurse, has worked in this facility and thought it's good too. It is also close to me. My parents seem to like this place. They're in a nice one-bedroom apartment and they are enjoying it. Their apartment is big enough for them. The staff's work ethic I think is very good. They've been very helpful. I like best that they know everybody there. I also like their food. Sometimes my parents don't like it but I like it. It's just a matter of what they're serving on that particular day. Regarding activities, my parents don't do too many activities, but they do go to sing-alongs.

I wish there was availability at Windsor Lakewood Ranch. The facility is clean, bright, and very well organized. I like the way they designed the building. They have their dining room off to one side. They have two different living rooms; one big with a television and a smaller sitting room. They have a huge activity room and a locked down area where residents could walk outside. They have a great activity director and they take the residents to weekly outings. The staff was very helpful.
