I visited this facility

I liked the Windcrest on Van Dorn, but unfortunately, they were not able to handle my mother. The place was newer with nice rooms and staff.

We had visited The Windcrest. We would be moving in two weeks. The visit was fine. They were very kind. I visited all three of them. All three were good. We chose the one we liked the best. The staff was fine. I met most of them. They were very welcoming. Our initial impression was good.

My mother loves this place. She has never lived alone in her life. She feels very safe here. She says nothing but GREAT things about the staff and the attention and care they give the residents. I dont live close to her, so it's a Blessing to know she is happy and safe.

We chose Windcrest because of the location, services and the price. The staff is very good, attentive and caring towards my parents. The food is good, I wouldn't call it outstanding but the service they provide is excellent. The dining room is very nice. They could improve on food quality.

Windcrest is very nice. It's large. Sometimes, they don't have quite enough staffing. They have wonderful staff that tries to do it all, but sometimes they'd be trying to push two residents at once, which is not a good thing. But, it is a very nice facility. Good people.

I visited this facility

A co-worker of mine's mom died and she had to get her stuff from the assisted living home. As we are good friends and there was a decent number of bigger things, she asked me to drive up, back things up and bring them back for her while she planned the funeral.I drove up there after work on Thursday and found that many of the staff had assisted in packing things up and left cards for my friend. Some of the staff were sad when I began moving things. While I got a decent look around, it seemed like a decent to good facility, what struck me was the somber mood many had. When I had walked in, it was quiet, but not sad. As I began carrying things out, I noticed residents and staff crying or fighting back tears from time to time. I was offered a free meal about half-way through, which I ate and it was pretty good. While the facility offered many normal amenities and seemed to be quite well furnished, the thing that struck me was the obvious unity these people felt. It had been 2 days and they were sad about the loss. While I did get an informal tour from one of the nurses, the tour isn't what stood out. It was the sense of communal loss at having lost someone. While many reviews discuss the amenities or the price, I think, when it comes down to it, it is the personal connections people make at these types of facilities, that we really want for those we are looking to reside here. And my friend's mom seemed to have this in abundance at the facility.
