    The management has been very responsive the entire time my mom has been here. They do an excellent job with the housekeeping and laundry part of the operation. They have had some outstanding maintenance people since we have been here. They are very quick to fix anything. We are very fortunate to have Doug Kelly as the director of health and wellness at the facility. He has really upped the game of the medical technician staff. He and the staff have been phenomonal with the care of my mother and the administration of the medications that she has to get. That is the most outstanding aspect of the operation at Windchime of Chico.

    The services she has been getting for the last two plus years have been excellent. I would say the bang for the buck is good. I've seen meals served a few times for my mom and it looks like it is healthy food and there is plenty of it. From what I've seen, I would say the activities are good. They now have a nurse on staff five days a week and that is nice to know. When there are issues with the residents such as my mom they let me know.

    Everybody on the staff has been so respectful. He has nothing but nice things to say about people that work there. I�m happy if he is happy. For the peace of mind we have and the care he is getting it is worth every penny. I know he is happy with the food. He says it is good and there are choices. If there is something he doesn't like there is always something like a hamburger or sandwich that is available if he doesn't want the main course. I think all the servers are friendly and knows what he wants. From the schedule that I see when I walk in there is something going on every hour that they can get involved in. Plus you can go and pick out a book or movie. There are many opportunities to be social or not. There is no reason to sit around and be bored, there is a lot offered. He always has clean clothes. I think the laundry is great. Everything seems to be clean. Just having him taken care of as well as he is means we don't have to worry about it. Anytime he has had a problem or not gone down to breakfast they come and check on him. I think their response time is really good. They keep track of him.

    The dining servers have been really nice to him, and the caregivers are doing a fine job. He is hard to keep track of, but they are doing a good job. They have activities for the general population and are doing a fine job with those. I think they are doing a fine job with the maintenance. His apartment is fine. When you really think about it, I would have to say that the value is in line with other places in our area.

    I would recommend it. The care staff is always taking care of her. The staff spend a lot of time talking with her, which I think is nice. The overall building is doing really good. The housekeping services went pretty well. Overall, everything is clean in her apartment. She likes the food well enough. I've never had any problems with management. Anytime I've wanted to talk to them, they're always available. They let me know whatever I need to know. They did what they were supposed to do to make sure my mom was as comfortab;e as she could be.

    Compared to other places in the area, the price is equitable. My mother is pretty satisfied with the dining, the laundry is fine and maintenance is fantastic. Maintenance fixes things right away when she needs help and the building is in great shape. They are doing a pretty good job with all the people they have to handle. They seem to do a good job with the activities.

    We got my mother in law a room that overlooks the lake. She likes that because she was raised on the island of Bermuda. She can see the turtles and the geese and makes her feel more at home. I feel the food is fine and the service in dining is fine also. My mother in law is doing a few of the activities. She is 93. She likes the Happy Hour. I think the care staff are meeting her needs. I have gotten to know the girls and I think they are doing good. I am satisfied with the service she is receiving from housekeeping and maintenance.

    My brother came to visit my mom from the Bay area and they brought in a cot for him to sleep on there with mom. Just the little things they do make you feel so welcome. Everyone has just been super friendly. Pretty regularly they check in on her and she really likes that. She doesn't feel lonely and likes them popping in. Mom has been really happy with the care. The staff in dining is extremely helpful and serve quickly. The food is fresh and hot. She has been very happy food wise. I would say the value is really good. She is paying about the same as she was for independent at her previous place but getting 24/7 care.

    I've been here for over 5 years and I don't have a single complaint. I would say the management is very good, the food is excellent, the dining staff are very good and the grounds look wonderful. No problems with the cleaning either. From time to time I participate in the activities. We had a good activity just before dinner tonight.

    My parents seem quite happy with the dining and the servers are attentive and excellent. Maintenance is so on top of everything. If you mention anything, they have it done in a day or less. Whenever I'm there the place is always clean. For what it is, the healthcare is great.

    I am satisfied with the laundry, apartment cleaning and consistency of its service. She doesn't participate in activities, but that is of her choosing because the activities are entertaining, well planned and consistently offered to the residents. My wife and I have been there to eat several times and we think the quality of the food for my mom is fine.

    The personnel on staff seem to be much more consistent. I see the same people a lot now, whereas before I saw different people each month. For almost a year I am seeing the same people over and over again. That shows me the stability of the operation under the current management. The administration have been helpful with providing answers and if they didn't know they would go and seek out the answers. I am happy with the services she is getting for the price she is paying. My mom seems very happy with the food. Her weight is being maintained. That is a good indication to me that she is being fed adequately. The activities look very adequate to me in keeping the residents active. She is getting her medications from the med techs and aides. They appear to be adhering to a very consistent schedule. They make sure she gets the meds and help with other issues such as teeth brushing and they lay her clothes out each day. I have total confidence that is going smoothly. My mom's health reflects that attention.

    It seems to be a normal price and my dad gets good service. The service in the dining room seems fine. They got some new people and changed some things around. This community has the calendar of activities posted all over the place. They certainly make the residents aware of them and encourage them to attend. They mix the activities up and do a fairly decent job with that. When he wants something cleaned housekeeping gets right on it. When there have been issues, maintenance takes care of them right away. Everything seems to be pretty decent and there is nothing in noticeable disrepair. Everything is nicely painted, there are no odors and they do a good job. The caregivers are real attentive and professional.

    It was a combination of outdoor and indoor environment, the rooms were more spacious than some of the places I had seen elsewhere, the program looked good and there was flexibility, and the food looked good. It looks like there is a nice activities calendar and I'm really pleased with the Activities Director. The facility looks very clean overall, it was immaculate. The healthcare staff is excellent, they've been responsive and have given me feedback. They're on par with what's available in the area, I'd say they're slightly more than some and less than others. I think they're a good value for what's available.

    We looked around here and of all the ones in Chico we liked Windchime the best for my mother. Looks like they have taken care of any potential safety problems as far as I can see. The care givers are responsive and respectful, and the managers were very helpful. They went out of their way to make sure everything was taken care of for moving in. My mother likes the food better than where she was before, and so far what activities she says she's done she says is good. They have a calendar app. The maintenance man was helpful and housekeeping has been great, they keep her apartment clean. We�re satisfied with the value, and so far mom tells me it�s good.

    We toured several places with my parents and we all liked it, felt like the staff was friendly and it's a good location for us. All of our interactions with management have been great, they've been very helpful and my parents have been very complimentary of the food. I feel like there are activities every day that interests them or that they enjoy doing, a lot of music and performances, they enjoyed going to Target on the bus, it's been good. My parents have been very happy with the care providers, they've been really kind and nice. I think it's all good.

    I chose this community for my mom because on top of my town burning down and having to find my mom a place, you guys were the first ones that actually called me back with information. You guys helped me. Everyone in management was helpful. I've been very impressed with the healthcare, they seem very attentive. One day I was there and my mom and the activities director was sitting there doing puzzles together, the young man was very engaging.

    The staff is wonderful, they all treat us very well and cares about us, they take very good care of the residents and they're very loving. You just feel really comfortable like you're at home with family. Dining is good, we have a good variety, it's not the same thing day after day, and we have different menus. The activities are very good, they keep us occupied. The staff keeps my apartment very clean and maintenance is excellent, if there's any kind of a problem they come up and fix it immediately. The healthcare staff has been very prompt and caring, they're excellent, and I�m very content here.

    We are pleased with the service that Mom is getting from management, dining, housekeeping and care. Maintenance takes care of everything from what I can see. She has gone down and listened to the music. She says she has gone to exercise. I am trying to get her involved in more of the activities because that will help keep her more active. She hasn't spoke of any problems in regards to her care. When I am there they do what I ask. If I ask questions about how things are they seem to be okay with everything.

    Aesthetics was the appeal and one of the reasons we chose this place. The food has been lovely and the options are nice. We are big on soups and the soups here are great. They have a lovely patio to sit out by the lake. The call light system here feels like room service. Anytime we have needed anything someone has been available to help us. It is wonderful to put the call light and someone acknowledge you in a timely fashion. They are very prompt. Everyone greets you with a smile and that is big.

    My brother moved into this community because my aunt was there and liked it. There are a lot of services offered and the price is worth it. He has a great view of the lake. We couldn't be happier. Management helped us get in quickly and helped us with the paperwork. They waived an activities fee to help us get in. The food is really good. The servers are friendly and fantastic. They have activities every day and my brother has enjoyed it very much. The housekeeping has been good. So far everything seems to be getting done. Maintenance helped put his TV in and hooked it all up. It is working great. They did everything right away. The caregivers have been really friendly and are right there with his medication. This community let us have a reception there after my brother's wife passed away which was really nice. All in all, we are really happy.

    We chose this community because when Mom was displaced because of the Camp Fire they had the perfect opening. Mom says it is ritzier than anything she was used too. It was serendipitous that we found the place. A room came open and mom's name was next on the list to contact. They only had a studio apartment open and that was what she wanted. It just all fell together nicely. I feel we are getting everything the insurance money is paying for. They are getting their money's worth. Shawn, the marketing person, helped so much. She helped to coordinate things because I am out of state. They have even helped walk her dog. She says she has been eating better than she has in a long time. She says they are feeding her too much. She is now opting out of meals because the food has been great.

Management has been very good and accommodating. The menu looks very good. I have walked all around the place and it is well kept. Her room seems to be well kept. The maintenance guy is very good. I mentioned something to him and he hoped on it right away. The caregivers are right there with her pills. The staff is all very nice and I like the location.

They were excited about all the different exercise programs, that they were right there at the facility and so convenient and the choices offered, they were very receptive to the offerings. Everybody is really nice and helpful and the grounds are really nice, Windchime has always been top notch.

    I was looking for a place to live because my home burned down and this place was open. They even got me in a week earlier which was nice. Management does everything reasonably and promptly. The activities people do a good job considering the variety of people they have to work with. The food is good and the servers are absolutely good, the building also looks nice. You're getting three meals a day, laundry and cleaning, it's a great deal.

    I think the price is fair but I didn't really look around. The price is probably comparable. I think my mother in law is feeling very safe and comfortable. I have no fears that she is being mistreated. She is totally comfortable here. This is her home and that is what she calls it. Management and the servers in the dining room do a good job. The servers are right there to get the food out to the residents and they do that pretty quickly. The food is cooked in the main dining room and then brought to memory care. The food looks good and seems appetizing. She seems to like it. They do have games on the tables for the residents. The staff is good at having a lot of the older movies going on. They have music and all sorts of things going on in assisted living. I have seen them doing crafts and playing games there. Her room is always well kept and clean. The building is always clean and always smells good. You don't have that icky smell. It always smells fresh and clean. Everything is clean and well kept. Their outside is very nice. They have courtyards and the memory care has their own outside space too. That is kept very nice and it is enjoyable to be out there. When she moved in, there was an outlet that needed work and they came in right away to fix that. They brought furniture in for her because her bed was too big for her room. They brought that in right away and set it up. Transportation always seems to be on time. The guy who usually drivers the bus is extremely friendly and helpful. He visits with the residents and seems to know them. He knows their names and who they are. I like that. The caregivers do a really good job. They are really good and seem to know their residents and call them by name. They know their likes and dislikes. Every time she has fallen, they have called me and let me know. They have been really good at getting her transported or sending her to the hospital to be checked out. She has had a couple of injuries. One time she took a tumble and got a cut on her arm. Another time, she fell and got a cut above her nose. They were really good at getting her to the hospital and calling me. She gets her med's on time. For a while she was refusing to take her medication. They worked with me to find ways to get her to take her meds. The residents seem to be happy at this community. I feel like this is a good home and good assisted living. I think the staff is very kind and they really do concern themselves with the residents. I have never heard them sound short with any residents. Everyone seems like it is really peaceful and the staff genuinely care.

    I looked high and low to find a community and to find one that is as nice as this community is hard. The people that have been there for a long time like Shawn are wonderful. My friend loves the food and there is variety on the menu. Normally their activities are pretty good. They have bingo and a lot of different things going on. They have a bus driver who has been sick the last couple of weeks. Normally he takes them on different trips and to different communities. That has been wonderful. Housekeeping is good and so is maintenance. The building is very attractive and they keep it up. The bus driver is so good with the residents and so patient with them. He is always very nice and pleasant to be around. They have a brand new vehicle. The med techs are great. I get all of her over the counter medications. They let me know when she is low on that. All in all, I am pleased with this community.

    My father-in-law was in other communities before and really unhappy with those situations, but now he is really happy at Windchime of Chico. He thinks the meals are great, he hasn�t complained about it once. They seem to cater to the residents, and they deal with special dietary needs without complaint. I think he likes the Friday night men�s get together and the calendar shows plenty of activities are available. The Med Techs are great, always ion time, and very friendly. Any issues we've needed straightened out they have straightened out right away. All the common areas look clean and well kept up. We always see the maintenance staff vacuuming the hallways and washing the carpets. Every time we've come in his room housekeeping has nicely taken care of it. Laundry has been great, not complaints. The price is fair; my father-in-law is safe and comfortable. The managers are doing a great job. They are friendly, kind, and take care of business. This is the happiest I've seen my father-in-law in a long time.

Housekeeping is very good, excellent, and everything is good with maintenance. The activities are good. They have a form in the lobby and every day they update the activities going on. I like my apartment, and people are always impressed when they come here and see what a nice place it is. Food is fine. Everything is fine here, I'm very happy.

    The price at this community is in the ballpark for the kind of care my mom is receiving. The food seems to be fine. The residents seem to get enough food and there are always aides floating around during the meals to help out the residents. I have been impressed in the diligence of the employees and their patience. I am impressed with their optimism as well. I have seen the activities offered here and have seen residents participating as much as they are able. My mom's carpet in her room was recently replaced and the building is in very good condition. My mom slipped off a chair and got a little contusion on her face. The heath care staff contacted me four times over two days after that incident. I was impressed with that.

    My father has lived at Windchime of Chicao since March of 2018 and I like a lot of things about it. Management is respectful and responsive, the food looks pretty good and they work hard with taking him on bus trips or doing trivia. The laundry is excellent and I appreciate the housekeepers very much, the maintenance department is absolutely wonderful too. Regarding his care, the healthcare staff works hard and tries their very best so all in all, we're pleased with the experience and services he is receiving at the community.

    My mom has been there for three years, and in that time she's never lost a single article of clothing with laundry. Housekeeping takes care of her apartment, they take care of her clothes. I am very pleased with the Director, the dining staff are just wonderful. My mom appreciates the activities and I think there is a good variety. She does enjoy all the daytime ones, the exercise, and the outings. The Med Techs and aides are wonderful. They�re nice, make sure my mom is on schedule. The layout of the building is also perfect for Assisted Living. There's always people in the common areas, lots of chances to get to know other residents. My mom has a chance to be social there. My mom loves it there. She's totally happy with the apartment. She has everything she needs, and I think it's perfect. For Assisted Living, what Windchime provides is perfect.

    My mother has been at Windchime of Chico since last year and when I decided on it, the factors included were aesthetics and the gorgeous view from her room, she loves it. In terms of services, the food is good and my mom is pleased, she always enjoys the exercise classes and she really likes when Windchime makes an effort to bring entertainment. She has no complaints with housekeeping and maintenance is on top of evertyhing, so we have been satified with the price, services and accommodations provided so far.

    I moved my parents from Prestige who had put them in Memory Care a year ago, and when we came here they went into Assisted Living. The price is right in line with, or even less expensive than everybody else. The Memory Care caregivers are good, they're amazing. It�s like every day you go in and they seem so excited to help out people with memory issues. There is nothing bad you can say about them. Housekeeping has been great. The place is always clean and taken care of, and the building�s great, grounds are beautiful, and I like the new floors. My parents call the place home and have settled in nicely. They are pretty darn happy.

    I like the personale very much. I haven't met anyone at Windchime that was absolutely on top of something so they really have wonderful staff. It's a beautiful place with the view, so they do very well. Brenda at the front desk is super wonderful and management is always helpful and polite. The staff go above and beyond with coming to get her out of her room, the bus driver is very polite and even though the healthcare staff has one of the hardest jobs there, they keep track of all my mothers medications and call me so that's good. All in all, they're just all really great people.

    My mom loves her apartment, it's really nice, it feels like home, and she's very comfortable. The activities are one of the best features there. It's phenomenal they have volunteers come in. She plays bingo a lot and she wins often, so really likes that. She just participates in what she likes, I'd say she's comfortable as is.

    The management staff is so helpful and friendly. The people at the front desk are so wonderful. If we have any questions about billing they are so willing to help. My father-in-law says the food is great. The activities are wonderful. From what I can see on the calendar they look great. There is a ton offered. The cleaning is fine. The laundry seems to be going well. Maintenance is wonderful and they respond so quickly and Matt is great and will answer anything for him. The building is gorgeous. If he has to be anywhere, he is glad to be here.

    My father-in-law was in other communities before and really unhappy with those situations, but now he is really happy at Windchime of Chico. He thinks the meals are great, he hasn’t complained about it once. They seem to cater to the residents, and they deal with special dietary needs without complaint. I think he likes the Friday night men’s get together and the calendar shows plenty of activities are available. The Med Techs are great, always ion time, and very friendly. Any issues we've needed straightened out they have straightened out right away. All the common areas look clean and well kept up. We always see the maintenance staff vacuuming the hallways and washing the carpets. Every time we've come in his room housekeeping has nicely taken care of it. Laundry has been great, not complaints. The price is fair; my father-in-law is safe and comfortable. The managers are doing a great job. They are friendly, kind, and take care of business. This is the happiest I've seen my father-in-law in a long time.

    The price at this community is in the ballpark for the kind of care my mom is receiving. The food seems to be fine. The residents seem to get enough food and there are always aides floating around during the meals to help out the residents. I have been impressed in the diligence of the employees and their patience. I am impressed with their optimism as well. I have seen the activities offered here and have seen residents participating as much as they are able. My mom's carpet in her room was recently replaced and the building is in very good condition. My mom slipped off a chair and got a little contusion on her face. The heath care staff contacted me four times over two days after that incident. I was impressed with that.

    My father has lived at Windchime of Chicao since March of 2018 and I like a lot of things about it. Management is respectful and responsive, the food looks pretty good and they work hard with taking him on bus trips or doing trivia. The laundry is excellent and I appreciate the housekeepers very much, the maintenance department is absolutely wonderful too. Regarding his care, the healthcare staff works hard and tries their very best so all in all, we're pleased with the experience and services he is receiving at the community.

    I toured a couple others and when I came to Windchime I liked the way the lady talked to me and helped me understand things. My husband was here for a short respite stay. We enjoyed dinner in the dining room, he seemed to always enjoy the food. The maintenance team was quick to help set up his TV and the building here is very well kept. I have Windchime on my list of places to use again if the need arises.

    My mom has been there for three years, and in that time she's never lost a single article of clothing with laundry. Housekeeping takes care of her apartment, they take care of her clothes. I am very pleased with the Director, the dining staff are just wonderful. My mom appreciates the activities and I think there is a good variety. She does enjoy all the daytime ones, the exercise, and the outings. The Med Techs and aides are wonderful. They’re nice, make sure my mom is on schedule. The layout of the building is also perfect for Assisted Living. There's always people in the common areas, lots of chances to get to know other residents. My mom has a chance to be social there. My mom loves it there. She's totally happy with the apartment. She has everything she needs, and I think it's perfect. For Assisted Living, what Windchime provides is perfect.

    They've been very responsive to any crises we've had or any issues regarding dad's health or billing issues. The management staff always seems to be available and ready to help. The food is generally very good. If we have any issues in the room the maintenance department gets to it real fast. My dad's room is a little stuffy and I saw they had the air pumping, I was happy with that They always seem to be very attuned to dad and his needs and what's happening. Generally when I call they know where is and what he's been doing. We're happy with the current price for what he is getting.

    I guess the value being received is fair. The dining staff is doing a great job. They get the food to my mother-in-law and they even get snacks to her. The care staff just let her unwind as she needs to. For instance, if she isn't making it for breakfast, they are not beating her up about it. They just wait for lunch and bring her down for lunch. They read into who she is and what she needs and then address it that way. When I've been there, the activities have seemed pretty nice. They had a lady come in and do nails! Music comes through and all sorts of stuff. I think everyone is doing the best job they can.

    Windchime of Chico has a view of the lake; it's very pleasant and quiet. I liked it from the moment I walked in. It's turned out to be a good fit. We liked the facility, and the management seemed to be on top of things, aware of things going on. They inform you, when you ask them a question they respond. They seem proactive, they want to help. The housekeepers do a good job on keeping it clean. The hallways, downstairs, dining room is clean, there's never a mess around. The caregivers are doing a good job, they're on it. They're friendly, and they know her. When I come in to visit my mom the Head Nurse makes a point to stop me and tell me what's going on. I don’t even have to ask, she volunteers. My experience so far has been excellent.

    Shawn was a part of recruiting new people in and Janice is a nurse there. Both of them were very helpful and not pushy but guiding. All of the people in the facility seemed to be handling themselves with courtesy, care and patience. I'm very pleased. The food is amazing there. It's well cared for and taken care of. I think they bring community people into the facility for activities, which I like, and have residents organize and provide services as well for their peers. Housekeeping is always good. Every time I go in, it's taken care of. Everything is tidy and neat. I don't expect perfection and we're getting close to it, so I'm very pleased.

    The social director is notably delightful. The staff in the memory area is amazing. They deal with the patients so well. My parents like the food and they're totally happy. Mike does a good job with the repairs. He'll hang a picture if you want. If you have something wrong, he's just on it. The place is great. The housekeeping and laundry is so seamless I'm not even aware of it, hardly. The healthcare staff has to do so much stuff and they get it all done. I see a lot of activities. Since they moved to memory care, it's good because they make Dad do it. They get him going on stuff, which is pretty amazing. And when he goes, he enjoys it. Mom, of course, loves the activities.

    I'm very happy. I have total peace of mind. They seem to have good people here. I have nothing but good things to say so far. The accommodations are great. All-in-all, I think for what we get, it's a good value. Everybody was very professional. Shawn, the marketing person, was very understanding and reassuring with what was going on with my mother. She expedited my mom to be seen by the primary care doctor to complete the paperwork. The messages they send is don't hesitate to call with any questions. They're very responsive to us, which is nice. The dining room is like a little café with white tablecloths and a menu set out. It really feels like a fine dining experience. There's a good choice and variety. They really knock themselves out to please. They provide excellent activities. Musicians come. Every night on the big screen they watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. They do cooking groups. She especially enjoys the music. The day that I moved her in, the maintenance fellow, Matt, helped me so much with setting the TV up, mounting pictures and mirrors, touching up paint, and also fixed the toilet. The nurse is great. Very responsive. Very caring.
