This is home living, but in a facility. Its home cooking but in a facility. They started with mom when she needed supervision and helped her when she needed it, then hospice went in through the end. It was fantastic 24hr care! They have more than 1 RN, both were fantastic. There is great staff; nursing assistants awake around the clock, housekeeping, house manager and the owner gave my mother coffee and cookies every morning. Our family was so pleased with moms care!

    Dirty and barely managed. RN has no compassion for folks,and seems rude to residents.

    Response: I completely disagree. Windy acres is very clean and the staff there is awesome! It is like living at home but in a very safe and clean environment. We have more than one rn on staff.
