Fairwinds - Rio Rancho – Reviews
Fairwinds took the best care of my mom. The CNAs were so very kind to her in her last days! All shifts were gentle and respectful with her. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the care she received! My dad will have a wonderful place to live.
The staff is fantastic and I am also very grateful to the Fairwinds-Rio Rancho workers for doing an outstanding job.
Clean facilities, and friendly , knowledgeable staff. Residents appeared to be content.
I love living here in Fairwinds Rio Rancho! I stay supported and the staff are fantastic, always helpful, kind and understanding.
Caring staff. Its nice to have a place that looks nice as does Fairwinds, however the staff is whats most important to me. The staff here do care.
This place is more an independent living with minor assistance. If your loved one has the possibility of Dementia or Alzheimer, or if your elderly loved one is prone to UTIs then I would suggest staying away from here. My mother in law became very anxious and irritated. They did virtually nothing for her, except make my husband stay with her, all because of a UTI that they should have thought to test for. My mother in law was then admitted into a behavioral health center without notifying any of her family. The only reason Im giving 3 stars is because the food is excellent.
Seems like a nice place but a smaller residential assisted living choice was what my father needed.
I work here and this is my home away from home
My daughter did hula here they all seemed nice
This facility in Assisted Living is phenomenal. The team is extremely professional and friendly. I d recommend to those pursuing this lifestyle Fairwinds-Assisted Living Rio Rancho NM.
A beautiful community with a kind and caring staff- some who have worked there over 20 years!
Highly recommended to Fairwinds - Rio Rancho very professional. Great work and good behaviour.
Pandemic and quarantine requirements has made it difficult to visit or spend time with our loved ones in Assisted Living facilities. Moms 82nd birthday was July 7th. And, thanks to Jade Hogan and the staff at Fairwinds Rio Rancho, they made it possible to celebrate moms birthday via Zoom. Multi generations of our familys faces from NM, NC, OR, and TX were displayed across the big theater screen for mom see...her brother, sister, children, grandchildren, and great granddaughter. With so many family members on Zoom, it was a bit chaotic, yet fun. Thank you Fairwinds for going above and beyond to make Gloria Reedys birthday a memorable one. Your efforts are much appreciated! Sincerely, Gloria Reedys children - Dianna Hoffman - Charles and Cindy Reedy - Chris and Marya Reedy - Shirley and Doug MItchell - Agatha and Vaughn Fulton
A perfectly assisted living facility – top-notch nursing care. I highly recommended to Fairwinds Rio Rancho.
Great staff and lots of options for activities. I've had two relatives live there for a total of over 4 years. I have spent hundreds of hours enjoying the festivities and socializing with my relatives. I believe the staff works hard to keep things upbeat and comfortable. And that said, it is very nice and a good value. Food is good, common areas clean. I hope a place like this is available when I decide it's time. It would be a blessing. I read some of the less positive reviews and simply know some folks are NEVER SATISFIED. NEVER. Whiners.....
My daughter did hula here they all seemed nice
After several visits, we have found Fairwinds staff and residents are friendly and caring. This is not a fancy retirement home so if you are looking for glamor, you won't want Fairwinds. If you want a pleasant homestyle environment and quality, you are in the right place. Everyone has theit own priorities. One thing I think they could add is another elevator. You can find problems/needs wherever you go but you need to decide whether the good outweighs the bad. We are now looking forward to out new home. By the way, the restaurant dining is awesome and the wait staff is really special. THIS IS AN UPDATE: 1 YEAR LATER We have lives at The Fairwinds in Rio Rancho for a little more than a year now. I feel the need to share my feelings again as I know when we were searching for a Senior residence, it helped to read the experiences of others. Over the course of a year, we have been able to experience the ups and downs that are common in a situation like this. I cannot emphasize how normal that is. Unless you have never worked in this type of environment, you have no idea how difficult it can be. Right now, the entire building is being renovated. Sometimes, the construction gets in the way of every day activities but management has been amazing in helping the residents thru this process and the entire building is shaping up to be very beautiful. Patience is the word to remember. It takes time to make these improvements but it surely is beautiful. When you live in a retirement home, meals start to become the highlight of your day. If you have ever worked in the restaurant business, you know how hard it is to find and keep good staff. Changes happen and usually often. Weve had the opportunity to experience that a few times in the last year but the wide variety of menu choices makes it easy to choose something you can enjoy. The staff is very pleasant and treat the patrons with loving respect. Aging people can sometimes be difficult to get along with and hard to please but the staff is very forgiving and they continually strive to make everyone happy and comfortable. The activities are numerous and accommodate the multiple needs of the residents. We are entertained by various groups a few times a week and dont let me forget the weekly Happy Hour with a live band and dancing. The Fairwinds has its ow Tea Room which I personally find very pleasant. There are movies shown in the theater twice a day. Religious services are done here. The gym is fully equipped and there is a trainer available if you wish. I cannot end this without mentioning the front desk. If you come in the front door, expect to be greeted by a friendly face and an accommodating staff member. Its going to happen. My recommendation... Check out The Fairwinds. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION... I probably seem like an advertisement now but Im not. Im a resident and I have always felt that when something is good, you share the information. The renovations here are now complete and they are beautiful. Today marked the opening of the brand new Bistro. The hours for the Bistro are 10AM to 6:30PM. This very simply means that you can get something to eat all day here at the Fairwinds. The variety of items offers something for everyones taste buds. I was really impressed with the friendly atmosphere for the residents who were seated at the Bistro socializing. The social aspect for seniors is so important and this new Bistro is a medicine for the loneliness elderly people often feel. I saw residents smiling and laughing while they enjoyed something from the menu offerings. Some were just having coffee or tea while others were eating snack items, sandwiches or dessert items. Its really special to live in a residence that offers something for everyone and a staff that shows genuine caring for the seniors who live here. The Fairwinds in Rio Rancho meets the wide variety of needs for the residents. Its definitely a happy place.
A good place my sister is a speech pathologist I gave her a ride nice environment
3-27-2021 UPDATE - Most of us are now fully vaccinated and I cant think of ever feeling more relief. The virus made all of our lives lonely for family and friends. Slowly but surely, we are now seeing things open but not without very cautious protective steps. It has been very special to enjoy meals again in our pretty restaurant. There are activities every day again and the Spa has reopened. We are so fortunate to be able to see our loved ones again even though there are some necessary limitations attached to those visits. It has been a long year waiting for these openings and even though this isnt a full opening, its hard not to be very grateful to have it. The staff here was put into a very difficult position as their jobs became complicated but you wouldnt have known it. I cant say enough about the wonderful way they went about making us feel cared for. Thank you just doesnt seem like it says enough but thats how I will leave this message. Thank You!! 1-23-2021 UPDATE - Hello Covid19 - You surely have made life miserable for everyone but we will win this battle here at the Fairwinds. Today, residents and staff were vaccinated in our effort to end this madness. This was an extremely well organized event and made me very grateful that we have a staff that cares enough to go the extra mile for us. We are in good hands. Thank you! 9-19-2020 - UPDATE - We are living in a world of chaos. Yet, being a resident of the Fairwinds gives us a sense of security. Not everything is perfect but as this COVID-19 has turned all of our worlds upside down, what is? Nevertheless, we are cared for and the wonderful employees here do everything they can to brighten our days. Residents here are fortunate to be surrounded by so many warm and friendly essential workers. I cant say ThankYou enough. 7- 26-2020 - UPDATE - We are still living here in a lockdown situation due to COVID-19. I cant say enough about the wonderful staff here at the Fairwinds. They go out of their way to try and make a difficult situation as pleasant as possible. Our housekeeper does a very nice job keeping our apartment clean. She does this wearing a mask which I know is hot and uncomfortable but necessary for her safety and ours. We have daily temp checks with employees who are fully clothed in PPE. Again, this is done to protect us all and keep us well. We have activities provided to keep our brains stimulated several times a week. A COVID 19 Happy Hour is provided weekly and each resident is provided with a beverage of their choice. The servers bring our meals to the apartments and are always pleasant when they arrive. UPDATE - 4-28-2020. A year has gone by since I posted here. What a year it has been. We continue to enjoy living here and wouldnt feel grateful if I didnt take the time to share a few words today. The activities and events we enjoyed for the holidays were exceptional. It seemed as if it was getting better and better then boom .. COVID-19 hit the world we all live in. Living in a Long Term Care facility is not ideal during a Pandemic. I am so impressed with how this difficult event has been handled here. I feel safe because precautions for the residents here are far better than I imagined them to be. The staff has been amazing and although we have been quarantined, they have gone out of their way to made every day as pleasant as possible. I know none of this is easy for them but they do it without complaint. They are our essential workers. We wouldnt be safe without them. Like everyone else, I look forward to the end of this but for now, I want to say THANK YOU to our caregivers. Stay Well Everyone!! We have lived at the Fairwinds for over a year. In that time, we have seen it transformed into a very beautiful showplace but that is not what is the most appealing part of living here. Let me start with staff. From the front entrance to the kitchen and dining room and then on to maintenance and housekeeping we have been so impressed with the kindness and courtesy shown here. There have been good things happening in every department. The meals which everyone looks forward to at this stage in life have been very good and the variety of choices makes it difficult for the residents to be unable to find something they will enjoy. We are served by pleasant, smiling faces too and that adds a lot to your day. The apartments are spacious and comfortable. The activities are numerous and fun. There are games, outings, special musical treats and even a weekly happy hour with a live band and dancing if you wish. If your preference is religion, that can be found here too. Sometimes its especially hard to please the elderly especially when there are so many of them but the staff goes out of their way to do that. I highly recommend The Fairwinds and hope you will come and see for yourself if you are looking. We are more than pleased that we chose the Fairwinds for our senior years. Weve been here almost 2 years now and watched as continual improvements were made to our living environment. The entire building has been renovated and the addition of the bistro has had an amazing effect on the socializing for the residents. The staff continues to be warm and caring for the residents. Over the holidays, we were treated to beautiful decorations and wonderful entertainment. I cant stop reminding myself how alone and lonely we would have been if we stayed in our home. The New Years Eve party was really great and we celebrated Chinese New Year with an authentic Chinese celebration. Everything is here if you want to participate. Church services are available. Theres a full service beauty salon. I could go on and on. The decision to move here was hard. The decision to stay is easy. I cant wait for the Super Bowl Party next Sunday. I am sure it will be awesome.
Its a great place to be! Happy faces! Warm smiles great staff! love yall!
I have worked at The Oaks of Clearwater for many years. I am more than thankful for the opportunity to work in an environment like The Oaks. Because of this company I have personally been able to touch, and help hundreds of families find care and assistance for their loved ones. I have had the pleasure of meeting so many incredible people thus far through my experiences here, and every day working at this job I am able to change peoples lives for the better. No company is perfect, no even The Oaks. What I appreciate about this team is that they are willing to take the time to look into every concern that is brought to their attention, and that the managers and staff work hard every day to go above and beyond to meet the expectations of the residents and families they serve. The company as a whole thrives on positivity, and most of the staff exudes the virtues of their mission statement "Caring, Compassionate, Service". It is a pleasure to work at this community and I am proud to be a part of this team.
I can not say enough positive comments about the Trails of Orono, their staff and employees. All are so professional, caring and compassionate. My mother recently passed away while a resident at the Trails and my father still resides there. We are so grateful for finding such a wonderful facility and all the tender, loving care they provide.
It is common for elevator to be down. Once the elevator was out of order for two months. Traps people on the upper floors very scary. They cant seem to keep a chef employed. I have thrown away food because it was an identifiable and tasted wretched. This is not the first retirement facility my mother-in-law has stayed at the other was so much better and safer.
I recently moved in to this facility and it has provided me with many amenities and has a great and friendly staff.
Beautiful facility. Had a great tour today. The staff were wonderful, cheerful, sincere good people work here to make the residents feel at home. Thanks again Karen for your enthusiastic hospitality! Larry and I enjoyed the visit.
Great place with lots of five-star fun! -Interim HealthCare of Central New Mexico-Albuquerque
These good people are worthy of your support.
