CARING TEAM WITH WIDE SKILL SET
You know how the best athletic teams or the most amazing musical groups are the ones made up of incredibly skilled individuals, bonded by a common passion and drive to be the best? Yeah, well that’s us too. Our team of professionals loves being a part of a program that puts the client first. Combining a wide variety of skill sets, they work together to provide a dynamic and engaging adult day care program and offer a warm and inviting home for our residents and respite care guests.
USING THE LATEST RESEARCH AND BEST PRACTICES
Our team members pride themselves on staying on top of the latest research and best practices in aging care. Through annual trainings and regular refresher sessions, they improve upon and share their expertise in areas including fall prevention, food safety, infection control, dementia care, mental health, clients’ rights, and emergency and disaster preparedness.
Every staff member I have interacted with has been friendly, approachable and professional. The staff are the heart and soul of Winter Growth and make it a fabulous, enriching place.
