Good value for a smaller budget

We chose Truewood by Merrill at the time because of the value for the money. I do think that the staff could be a little more patient with the residents based off of what I have heard from my friend. Overall I think they do a pretty good job, there are just some little things that have happened.

My loved one loves Windsor.

I really liked the apartment. It was awesome, even better than where we ended up. It looked really nice and had a full wall of windows, which was beautiful. The place was awesome. The only thing we didn’t like about it was it was an 11-story building, and we wanted one level so it would be easier to get around on a Jazzy . Also, our loved one came from amazing views of wide open pastures, and we wanted him to be able to see plants and open outdoor spaces. Windsor had a courtyard within the building, but it just wasn't a good fit because of that.

A caring place, good location - The perfect place for us.

We've experienced friendliness from the staff. They respond very quickly when you ask for anything to be done in the apartment. Their maintenance is right at the top. The caregivers are very kind and very helpful. It's just like every business right now, they're suffering from not being able to get enough help. They try their very best. It's just hard to get caregivers. We know we can't expect them to cater to us specifically because they have lots of other people to take care of too. But they're always doing the best job. I appreciate so much what they do. There's just simply not enough of them. Sometimes we have to wait a little for assistance, but other times we don't. One of the dining servers has gone out of his way to push my husband back to our apartment. He's gone above and beyond his role a couple times now to do that for us. I really like living here. We have one of the largest apartments here, so that's nice. It's well maintained. We asked for wood floors, and they gave us wood floors. I asked the housekeeper when I got here if the old carpet was on top of the floors. She said that she had sanitized everything before they laid the wood floors down. One of the rooms has floor to ceiling windows, since this used to be a hotel, and she said the drapes were all sanitized before we moved in. I asked her a ton of questions about the apartment before we got there, and I know she was telling me the truth. She's been here nine years. Some of the caregivers have been here over a year. And only one has left since I've been here, only because she got a job closer to where she lived. I figure they don't get paid a lot, so I make sure to tell them every day how much I appreciate their work. I'm so grateful for what they do. They do the laundry once a week. When it comes back it's all folded and nice. There's a washer/dryer on each floor if you prefer to do your own laundry. The housekeeper comes once a week, mops every one of these floors, cleans the bathrooms real good, including the showers. And we have two full baths. She empties the trash out. If I put my trash out in the hallway any day of the week, it gets picked up no matter the day. They're on top of everything, including the medical care we receive. And they treat all of the residents the same. It doesn't matter how much money you have or don't have. I think the people here are trustworthy, and I've never noticed anything missing. I just can't tell you enough how nice these caregivers are. I'm very happy here and so thankful to be here.

Death

BEWARE of this facility! Windsor sent my mother to the hospital where she was found to be malnourished. She died 3 days later. Windsor then refused to release my mother's records to the family. After getting an attorney, Windsor claimed they were not a medical facility and therefore weren't required to keep records. Put your loved ones here at your own risk!! BEWARE of this facility and staff members Bennie (Director) and Wendi (nursing supervisor).

A kind, caring community

i think in general it is a caring staff. The apartments have great size rooms. they renovated the common areas, and it is easy for residents to get around. I chose this community because we had other family members they have been them before, and their cost is pretty reasonable compared to others that we looked at. The caregivers in memory care seem great. I would absolutely recommend this community to other families.

Looks more multi-cultural with services for Jewish, Catholic, and protestant folks *Also love every single thing offered here—golf, indoor and outdoor walking, all the medical I could likely every want. *Except it really doesn’t have a kitchen just a microwave, refrigerator. I am thinking there are tiny ovens and stove tops that can be added in a discrete place, though, from HomeDepot or somewhere….

Windsor is a truly beautiful residence! It literally looks like a resort. They are currently going through an update renovation, and whoever is leading that...I wish I could borrow their designer for my own home. It's just AMAZING! The location used to be a former hotel so the common areas are very spacious. The rooms are so unique, and each has a full size (not dorm room sized) refrigerator and freezer in the room for keeping snacks and drinks. They serve all their meals in the main dining area, 3 times a day which encourages residents to gather. They have planned excursions to shopping, restaurants and other entertainment. They will be adding a large movie theater and central country store in case the residents need something, but don't necessarily want to or expect to go on a shopping excursion. The whole facility is going to be beautiful when they are finished with the remodel! Most of it has been completed with some areas still in minor finish out construction. We loved it's location and how well it is appointed! If mom or dad are active, this is a great place because they have so much to do! If they are more quiet and reserved...that is great too. They have a library and plenty of quiet places to sit & relax besides their rooms.

Finally found home

i was in several senior living locations in the South Part of Dallas that just did not work out. Windsor Senior Living is a welcomed surprise. The location for the City of Dallas is great. The facility is fantastic.Covered parking, spacious common area, Onsite beauty salon, are just a few of the amenities It has washer/dryers on every floor of the 11 story building. Staff will wash your clothes for you if you like. Those who like a good view of the area they are in will love the higher levels of Windsor Senior living. The Chef is amazing. I have had six weeks of three meals a day and every meal was supper. The one bedrooms are spacious as i am a individual and only need one bedroom. There are many large room selections. The corner office staff is on top of the operations and things run well. I have moved 4 times in the last 4 years. Finally I have found the place which will be my home and no more headache of moving anymore. Windsor Senior Living is great!! (pricing is the best i have found)

We had an excellent experience working with Windsor Senior Living when we were looking for a place for our family member. The Executive Director, [name removed], and Sales Director, [name removed], were concerned, caring and very accommodating to make sure that our family member felt right at home.

The rooms reminded me too much of the old hotel rooms with window units that they used to be. The building is still showing its age. The marketing person who worked with us was great and I liked their perspectives about aging in place and the memory care unit.

I’m glad to hear you had a good experience and that our sales associate was helpful. There are a lot of factors to choosing the community that’s just right, but you can take comfort in the fact that upon moving to a retirement community, people across the board are glad they made the choice. A whole new world opens up when you have friends, food, fun and all sorts of services and amenities at your doorstep. We have recently renovated our memory care neighborhood, performed some outside restorations and roof repair, and we are changing all lights to LED. We keep the community clean as a whistle and filled with vibrant programs and happy residents. We wish you the very best in your search and thanks again for visiting.
