This turned out to be the perfect fit for my parents. They loved it and felt they didn't need to look any further. They have already put down a deposit. Thank you for making this process so quick and easy!

Good but not for all

The friendliness of the staff members is mixed, very simply this community was very warm and inviting getting us there, everyone was very helpful. It turns out our loved one has a very progressive neurological disease, and unfortunately the care they advertised was not what they promised. Those staff members that were friendly, became rude towards us. The dining room is slow, it takes a long time being seating, a long time to order,and a long time to receive the food you ordered. For a resident with good health it is a good value, probably one of the better ones. If you are not healthy it is not a good value, With the care services and care givers there were some that could not of been better, and others who could of used some improvement.

Disappointing Food

My parent lives here. On the overall, it's a really nice well maintained facility. The employees are kind. However, one huge area of complaint for the residents is always the food!! The residents pay for it, but Fairwinds does NOT provide high quality, fresh food that is well prepared. For example, the "Cobb Salad dinner entree has NO dressing, no egg, no bacon, and no blue cheese (only a mozzarella like cheese product). Since the residents are on lockdown, food is one of the very few things they have to look forward to and Fairwind's cheapens out and leave the residents disappointed that they cannot get a good meal with all of the hard earned money they pay. It is a shame they do not value their residents more. The kitchen staff should prepare the meals to be like something they would want to eat. It is unfortunate the facility does not respond to resident feedback.

We found Fairwinds to be a first class facility. Friendly staff, well-maintained facilities, knowledgable and personable contact person ([name removed]).

Talk to the residents.

I still live at Fairwinds, because moving is hard and costly. Large apartments are very nice, but expensive. Food and dining are the main problems that have caused many to move. It is not unusual to wait 30 minutes for seating, and/or 45 minutes for food. Eat at 4PM, and you can get a seat. At 5:30, some better specials are gone. Unlike in a bad restaurant, you will return. Before moving in, eat several dinners, with residents. Ask them, without staff, what they think. Read the rental agreement carefully.

Thank you for your review. I’m sorry that you feel the need to continue posting negative online comments about our food service at Fairwinds Woodward Park. We take pride in our food service, so it’s disappointing to read your comments. As I have said before, I invite you to speak with me directly so I can learn more about any issues that you may have. I would also like to review additional lunch and dinner options so you’re aware of the many options we offer between the bistro and restaurant (farm fresh vegetables, salads, and two daily specials). I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Deanne Edwards, General Manager

Fairwinds Could Improve Dining/Food Services

I love the location of Fairwinds. My apartment is nice and quiet and employees are friendly and helpful. I rated Fairwinds overall 2 1/2 stars because of the dining/food experiences I’ve received. You never know when if you’re going to be waited on in a timely manner or you can wait up to an hour or more for a waiter to take your order. Then you wait for your order to arrive. This is a common problem that happens for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lack of staff seems to contribute to this problem. The food is usually okay with daily specials being the same each week. My experience with Housekeeping is good and there is adequate activities offered.

Our first choice of the 4 facilities we toured. [name removed] was very helpful and welcoming. Great information! Lunch was excellent, and [name removed] (server) was a delight! Lots of activities, as it is a larger community.

Very nice facility (though it was undergoing remodeling so quite a bit more "activity" then normal - but nice to know they are keeping it fresh). If we relocate dad to Fresno this will be on our A list.

Very fancy, very nice, disorganized at the front entrance and reception staff does not multitask and keep necessary business running smoothly. Staff does not use sense of urgency management. Marketing staff very friendly and helpful.

Clean Property!!

I had recently taken a tour of this community for my mother and I have no complaints of how things had went.The staff where on time to our appointment and made sure to answer any questions I had for them in detail. I liked the open floor plan and the great amenities that where available to all of the residents. It was just not the right budget for us in the end decision.

Lovely Place

Fairwinds - Woodward Park is a lovely place. It is a very clean and well-kept community. The staff is friendly and caring and do what they can for to help my Mom adjust to the move. It is hard for my Mom to ask for help when she has been used to being independent for most of her life. She likes the food they provide here. They provide plenty of activities but the one activity my Mom loves to play is Bridge, it is one on the reasons that helped us make the decision to move here to Fairwinds. My mom also enjoys the musical entertainment they provide. We have decorated her room with her furniture and her pictures on up on the wall. The community has a bus for shopping trips into town, my Mom has not made the trip into town yet, she is still a little unsure of her surroundings. It sometimes takes some time to adjust.

I liked this tour with this community. The staff was helpful and friendly. The menu looked appealing. The community was clean and had a nice feeling. They do offer activities for the residents who want to participate. We would recommend other families to tour this community for the care of a loved one.

The property was beautiful. The tour guide was wonderful without applying any pressure at all. I liked the oven/stove in the room and the 2 restaurants with full menus. However, most rooms did not have a balcony/patio.

Top Choice. We liked the choices for exercise and the dining room, we liked the check in system and we found the facilities very nice and the activities for the residents had the most variety.

I love bingo with the ladies!!

I have really enjoyed my stay here at this community , the staff have been outstanding. The waiters in the dinning room especially are always going out of there way to accommodate my needs and make sure I have everything I need. My favorite activity would have to be my bingo nights with the other ladies, I really enjoy the company. Overall I have no complaints and would defiantly recommend this place to anyone.

It's like being on a festive cruise ship!

My family member was apprehensive of the "unknown" in a place that she wasn't familiar with. The beautiful lobby, festive atmosphere, caring staff and well maintained grounds seemed like a safe place and environment. She has been in her apartment two weeks now and she seems happy! It is on the pricey side but her laughter when I talk to her is well worth it A special Thanks to [Removed], senior advisor, a place for mom. She rocks!!
