Assisted Living Reviews for The Windsor of Lawrence

May 17, 2016

I visited this facility

I thought Windsor was a very nice facility. The staff was outstanding, very informative, and professional. Their layout was very workable and seemed like a comfortable place. The dining area seemed very nice. They had security in place and a lock to the general entrance and another in the memory care entrance. The amenities were on par with everyone else's, and the people there seemed happy.

I am a friend or relative of resident

My dad is the alzheimer's unit and he isn't getting the care that we were told he would get. My mother goes every day to see him and finds that he is so thirsty. My dad has lost 5 lbs. in the less than a month he has been there because they feed him the same lousy meals every day without any meat. My mother is asked constantly to buy things for my dad. We are currently looking for a better placement for my dad.

I visited this facility

I had the pleasure of going to this facility multiple times over the span of eight months. The windsor had a friendly staff that was always very quick to make sure the residents were happy and content. They had many activities planned for those that lived there. This included group activities such as playing musical instruments, or bingo. The windsor also provided activities such as bringing in groups to put on short skits, or having dogs and puppies come visit from the local animal shelter. The atmosphere was very calming and friendly. The rooms were of a pretty spacious size with either one or two single beds in each one. Residents were taken outside to get fresh air as much as possible, which I thought was pretty nice. On special occasions nurses would bring the residents ice cream sandwiches, and their hair and nails were done on a very frequent basis. Overall, I was very pleased with this facility, and would consider having a family member or friend reside there when the time comes.
