Mom's Good Carereviewed on: 09/12/2017 by Anonymous
The care at this for my mom is outstanding. We like the enviroment and the cleanliness of the community. The menu is good and there is a lot of variety. I like knowing that she is activie with a lot of the activities. They offer trips away from the community. We would recommend this community for the great care and options for other families.

Like a Beautiful Cruise Every Dayreviewed on: 10/05/2021 by anonymous
She has a beautiful room with a patio. She gets to have her dog. There's a smoking area. She gets to have her tequila everyone once in a while The grounds are just beautiful. We watched the Bloom Fiesta from her back patio area the other day, and it was fabulous. One of the things I wish they had is a "mom chart" - so I could get a report on if they bathed her, cleaned her room, had pest control come in - just letting me know those little things, kind of like a doctor chart. But they're very protective of their residents. If there's any positive Covid tests, they lock it down. And everybody coming in to visit has to check in, whether they're on lockdown or not. The food is fabulous. It's fresh. For breakfast she gets things like sausages and eggs. Some days she's had shrimp for dinner. It's been really good. And she gets three meals a day. I would highly recommend it to anybody. It's been great for her to get out and meet all sorts of people. And Fairwinds has done a pretty good about trying to make sure everybody gets along.
Nice community but moving in was a pain!reviewed on: 04/19/2017 by Anonymous
Their access to move in furniture was terrible. You have to go through the back and it was very difficult. The staff is pretty nice and the community is well maintained. My mother was here in the past and some of the remembered her. There's one staff member who's been there for 16 years.
This place is just very, very hard to beat...honestly!!!reviewed on: 07/24/2018 by Milton J. Zschiedrich, Jr. (for Norma & John Goewey)
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 Rebecca Gutierrez, (Marketing ) and could not offer any other opinion than "excellence"! Every part of our tour with Rebecca 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, Rodney to the line cook, Julius...from our fantastic server, Sierra to the restaurant lead, Shawn...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, Adrian and there great bus driver, Sonny. Later, when we were invited to their "Happy Hour", our gracious activities directors (program coordinators), Kristin & Alice, 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 Milton J. Zschiedrich, Jr. 1416 Bridgeport Drive Raleigh, N. Carolina 27615
