Fairwinds – West Hills Reviews

Read reviews and testimonials from residents and family members for Fairwinds – West Hills senior living, a Leisure Care community.

“You’re kind and caring and wanted a job helping people. You’re fun and creative, and love throwing a party. You’re a wiz in the kitchen and can make a meal for many still feel special. I go to bed at night knowing my sweet mother is in good hands, and that she’ll be there, happy and chatty when I call her in the morning. I don’t know that I could do what you’re doing, and you do it with grace, good cheer, and no small amount of courage. You are remarkable people, every one of you.”–Cyndi H., family member of a resident

Frequently Asked Questions

How is assisted living different than independent living?

Fairwinds – West Hills offers both independent living and assisted living services. Residents in senior communities with assisted living receive assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, grooming, medication management, meal support, and more. Assisted living is different from a memory care facility and does not provide memory care services and support for people living with Alzheimer’s or a related form of dementia.

What are the different levels of assisted living?

Many senior living facilities offer a continuum of care services. At Fairwinds – West Hills, each resident receives a personalized assisted living care plan so that residents receive the care they need but can still exercise their independence. An assisted living community is not a nursing home or a skilled nursing facility. In assisted living, residents need some assistance but do not require constant supervision or care.

How can I pay for assisted living?

The cost of assisted living can vary greatly depending on location, type of care, and services needed. There are several options for financial assistance to help you and your family fit senior housing into your budget. Long-term care insurance, Medicaid insurance, Medicare insurance, and even using life insurance are ways people pay for senior care. California also has a unique program for low-income seniors to pay for care. Take a closer look at the seven most common ways to pay for assisted living.
