  • Loved Fairwinds and Sharon and Victoria! Impressed by Southwest décor. Our budget wouldn't accommodate placement of our sister at this fine facility but it was wonderful!

  • This place is just very, very hard to beat...honestly!!!

    I have read a few reviews that didn't seem accurate or even close to what I experienced on my visit to Fairwinds- Rio Ranch... I toured the entire facility, first-hand, with [Name removed], (Marketing ) and could not offer any other opinion than "excellence"! Every part of our tour with [Name removed] impressed my parents (who were previously quite objectionable to moving to any independent living facility) and they have now insisted that we take action to secure a place in the Fairwinds community. The staff was apparently expertly trained and very dedicated to customer service at every area of interaction with the seniors, to the point that, I am proud to refer Fairwinds-Rio Rancho to anyone!! In the restaurant, we were offered to dine with my parents and the food that was served was first-rate! From the sou chef, [Name removed]to the line cook, [Name removed]...from our fantastic server, [Name removed]to the restaurant lead, [Name removed]...these employees did a lot more than just their jobs to see that we were satisfied! We were even impressed with the prime fitness trainer, [Name removed]and there great bus driver, [Name removed]. Later, when we were invited to their "Happy Hour", our gracious activities directors (program coordinators), [Name removed] & [Name removed], made sure that not only those in our party, but ALL the people in all the groups attending were totally involved in the dancing and fun. I cannot applaud enough about the professionalism of this facility's employees, at every level! ...I compliment their upper management on their success in staff selection, obvious excellent training & human resource expertise in keeping these employees happy and dedicated to superlative customer service! Bravo and many thanks, Fairwinds... Sincerely [Name removed]

  • Horrible place

    I will start by saying that our tour was amazing. She was very friendly and reassuring that my grandmother would be well taken care of. We sat down for lunch in the cafeteria. Staff was friendly but once we started talking to other residents they informed us that they are not going to continue their lease and are looking for somewhere else to go. Leaving the cafeteria we noticed an altercation between an employee and a resident. The resident seemed very upset about the work not being completed in her apartment. The employee was not understanding at all and continued to argue with this elderly woman. At the end of our tour I asked the woman at the front desk who this employee was and she informed me that she is the general manager, [name removed]. That being said, I am confident in my decision about choosing to not move my grandmother in. If that is how the general manager treats residents in front of staff and other residents then I cant imagine how she speaks to them behind closed doors. It's no wonder these residents are choosing to go somewhere else. For the amount of money they are spending, they should at least be treated with respect and have the requested work done in a timely matter.
