I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility

Fairwinds in Ivey Ranch was very nice. I had a nice one-bedroom apartment. The staff there is outstanding, and the food is really good. They also have outstanding amenities and activities, like going to the beach every Wednesday, trips every Friday, bingo, and a little bit of everything.

Fairwinds - Ivey Ranch was a great place. The staff was great, very helpful, and very attentive. The rooms were great; they looked like first rate hotel. The grounds were not extensive, but the location was good.

Outstanding facility for independent seniors and seniors needing a little assistance with activities of daily living. The facility has a large capacity for residents and is located by the ranch so residents have plenty to keep them busy, with activities on site and within walking distance of recreation. The food is great. I had breakfast during my visit with one of the residents, and healthy meals are served and prepared on site. This facility is family and pet friendly. I saw a few pets during my visit. I love this facility because the activity director is very nice and welcome suggestions. This is a great facility for seniors who are independent and want to retain there independence and meet new friends.

Everything is what we were looking for, with one exception,Fairwinds does not have a swimming pool. Fortunately there is a YMCA over on College Blvd, about a half mile away. I particularly liked the availability of "dimensioned diagrams of the various floor plans, with which I was able to draw furniture layouts, much easier than moving furniture after we move in.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My mom loved this place. Unfortunately she had to move when she was no longer considered "independent". She was not happy for the first month or so just because of the change but by the 3rd month she was saying she had died and gone to heaven and LOVED it! She is one picky lady too. Jessica the manager is an Angel. She is so sweet and friendly. Her employees are all happy and I believe she is the reason. It's clean, updated, and well run. I recommend it all the time to my friends looking for their parents. The care givers are wonderful. My mom called Mimi her best friend. The reason I gave the food 3 stars is because it was on and off. Sometimes it was really good and other times not good. The reason I gave the overall 4 stars is because the caregivers were 90% great but there were a couple of them that were not as patient and kind as they should have been in that job. That is going to happen anywhere. I would like to give the place 4 1/2 stars but couldn't make it highlight half of the 5th star.

A favorite with the families living in the surrounding area, they rate high in their customer service for activities provided for their residents.

I came there and stayed in a 1 bedroom apt. for one week to see if the facility was where I would like to live. By the time my week was up, I knew this Assited Living and Retired home. I put a deposit down and will be moving there soon. GREAT facility!!
