Review ofFairwinds - Woodward Park

Review ofFairwinds - Woodward Park
5.0

Fairwinds is a very nice facility, it actually would have been a better fit for dad because they have trained medical staff on site. The issue was it was too expensive and he was not the biggest fan.

Review ofThe Windham
4.0

The Windham is a beautiful facility with beautiful grounds. There are lots of trees around, but that makes it rather dark, and the facility was pretty spread out, to the point that my husband wore out on the tour so we didn't get to see everything. They would have put us in assisted living, and independent living is a better fit for us. Also, the apartment was a little difficult to navigate if you have a walker. It was hard to get around corners in the hallways.
