Assisted Living Reviews for The Windsor of Venice

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

The Windsor was very nice, although at that time they didn’t have any openings. It was pretty big, and they seemed to be pretty first class in as far as what they’re doing. All the surroundings were very nice, I didn’t have any objections to it, and I think it’s a little more expensive.

The Windsor of Venice was very nice and clean, and I very much liked it, but it was too big and too fancy for my wife. In the memory care, they don't have menus other than what was served. The staff was informative and friendly. I didn't have any problem with the overall look of the place, and I was satisfied with my visit.

The Windsor of Venice was very nice. I liked the decorations because they were more contemporary than the stuff you see in a lot of retirement places. The red velvet and gold chains and crystals, all that stuff is depressing to me. The personnel of the facility were extremely friendly and helpful. The other residents were just great, friendly, and easy going. The ambassadors were sitting out in the lobby encouraging you to come in and they're a lot of fun to talk to. It was a very pleasant experience. We had one dinner there with homemade vegetable lasagna, and it was incredible. The chef was fantastic. The living room area was good, the library seemed to be quite comprehensive, the game and recreation area was nice. I think it's appropriate for the age, mental and physical abilities of the residents. They went out of their way to have my mom moved in on a Sunday. They were having an open house party with a rock and roll band in the living room, and all kinds of things going on.

Windsor is only six years old, so it’s fairly new, and the clients look well cared for. It was a very good facility. Safety measures were in place, the apartments were adequate, and they had a shower for folks who needed a flat area to enter. There was a small bedroom and a sitting area that were very nice.

The Windsor of Venice was very good. It looked like a pleasant place and seemed like somewhere that I could be happy living in. The rooms were nice. Nothing was particularly in need of any major upgrade. I also liked the flexibility that they offered.

The Windsor was absolutely beautiful. The memory care unit was a small little apartment, but for the group activities they were doing a lot of singing together. There was a lot of group education. The staff was very accommodating. That would have been almost 3 times as much in cost.

There were different sized rooms you can use, and they were very spacious, clean, and well-maintained. The staff seemed very friendly and attentive. There was a sing-along, there were people playing chess, and I was told that they had various trips into Venice for cultural events. I really liked the Windsor of Venice. We had lunch there, the food was very good, and it was a clean and spacious dining room.

When I was looking for a place for my dad, I went to Windsor in Venice. It is really very nice, but it was way out of my price range. It looked like a hotel. That's how I knew since I walked in that I couldn't afford it because it is just really nice. They had activities going on when I was there. They have a whole big schedule that was coming up. Their main lobby reminded me of a hotel. It is just very pleasant looking. The apartments are very spacious. It looked like a suite in a hotel. They were very clean. They just opened not too long ago, so it is pretty new.

My mom was at Windsor of Venice for three years. They have only been open for three years, so the first year was like any business; you are trying to find the right team of people to work with your patients, and it is hard in the healthcare system to find good help right away. They did have a year or so of that going on, which was OK with me. Of course it wasn't OK with my mother, but I understood it. I think they were wonderful, and I had my moments too, but they were caused by my mother. She had dementia and she was a person that was very hard to make happy. The place was beautiful, and there was not anything they didn't do there. They also did not have a swimming pool, and they did not really have an exercise room; they had one little pedal bicycle, and that was one thing they should have given more of. And one other thing, companionship should have been included in the rent. You had to pay extra for that, which I didn't think you have to. I liked that it was small compared to the others in the area.

I chose Windsor of Venice for my parents because of their memory care program. We visited it a couple of times and were very impressed with the head of nursing on how she approached the care of the residents. Now that they have been there a few months, I am very happy with the care they are getting and how friendly the staff is. It is a beautiful facility, very clean and spacious.

My husband has been in the Windsor since last May. He's been there a year. They're very, very good to him. He has everything there, his own room. Today, we're going out to lunch. They have music, arts, and crafts. They have people who come in and entertain, exercise, and all kinds of activities. They go on a bus ride every Friday, and we go to lunch every other week. We have a family potluck on the last Wednesday of the month for lunch. They're concerned for their patients. We're one big family. It's very clean. It's only four years old, it's very nice. We have a very good chef.

They're very good and the place is beautiful, it's a new one. When I wanted to put my husband there, they were full unfortunately. At the reception, they took the time to show you around to explain everything. I made an appointment with them and kept it. I've been there twice and I was really impressed. It's like a hotel, it's beautiful. I wouldn't mind living there myself if I were old.

The Windsor is a relatively new, privately owned facility that has assisited living as well as a "Memory Wing" for people with advaced demential. My father has been there since February. The staff is caring and kind, the food is good to great and he really enjoys the activities and social interaction. They recently had a wonderful selebration of Veteren's Day and recognized the 27 World War 1 Veterans who live there. I live seasonally close by, and often drop in unannounced. I usually have to go looking for my Dad as he participates in almost everything. He joined the signing group, even though to my knolwege, he never sang before! It is a great releif to me to know that he is happy and being well cared for in my absence.
