My review of Fairwinds

I would say to look at this community before you make a decision on any other community. The have activities like sing a longs, puzzle days, book reading, bingo and more for the residents to stay busy in the community. The staff are generally wonderful.

A nice community and great place for loved ones

The Fairwinds facility itself is very nice, we were able to tour of our loved ones apartment before moving it and we were very taken away by it. The value for the money is completely worth it. The staff are also very friendly.

easy transition and good staff

They always have some type of activity going on for the residents. My mom loves it at this community. Everyone is nice and this is the best place that I found in town after looking around at other communities. They have activities like bingo, drives up to the mountains when the weather was nice before the snow started and more for the residents to do to stay busy. They have movies and more for the residents and even if she only shows up they will still show the movie.

My tour review

This community was very nice but the reason we went with another community is because we spoke with another community and they stated that there was a resident that would relate greatly with my loved one. When we heard this we knew that this would be a perfect fit for my loved one.

An excellent place - the best place that I found in our price range in the area.

The food is great. The service is good. It's a homey experience. The cost is pretty up there. But it's a good place for my loved one, and he is well taken care of here.

This community is very nice and the food is great. The staff is great and is very friendly. The community does not have a memory care unit so unfortunately, it didn't fit our needs.

It's an excellent environment for your loved one

They are a wonderful and safe community for your loved one. We know she is safe and well taken care of there. We chose this community because we liked the looks of the facility, we liked the staff, and we loved the food. They were so friendly and so welcoming. They have so many activities. I would definitely recommend this community to other families.

Good but not outstanding

It was fine there for my mom and we didn't really have any problems with them. The caregivers were mediocre. For us, it comes down to the lack of skilled nursing care, and no registered nurses 24 hours a day. It seemed like there was always a high staff turnover and that seemed especially hard for my mom. The food started out really good and then the chef changed and if was hard for her to eat with her strict diet. They offered daily specials and the desserts were really good.

During the days that I was looking for a situation for my husband and myself, I looked at a number of places that offered various levels of service and care. When I came to Fairwinds, It felt like home and the place we needed to be. The Staff has been most accommodating, helpful and friendly. The community feels like family and we feel very comfortable here. We feel blessed to be in such a nice, safe environment.

If you can't be at home anymore then Fairwinds/Sandcreek is the place to be. Both the residents and staff are friendly like one big happy family. The food here is very good and a lot of work is put forth to make it that way.

I’m happy my son found Fairwinds for me. I enjoy the activities that Fairwinds organizes. I have made many new friends and we enjoy spending time together at meals and activities and card games or even hanging out in the lobby. The staff is helpful and friendly. Overall it’s a great place to be living but no where is perfect except heaven.

I have lived at Fairwinds for three years. I believe that there is not any better organization out there. The people who live here and the staff are great, for example PT. [Name removed] who works with us and helps us get back on our feet. [Name removed] who works hard to have things for us to do, like Bingo, Romeo luncheons. The girls in the dining room are friendly, loving, & caring. They bend over backward to make you fill good and are happy to serve. I would recommend to anyone who is retired to live here. They would not regret their decision.
