About Winter Growth Howard Center
Winter Growth Inc. is a nonprofit organization providing Assisted Living Homes and Health and Wellness Day Programs for older and disabled adults. Offering a custom menu of services that are respectful of and responsive to individual preferences, needs, and values, Winter Growth’s services provide Adult Medical Day Program (AMDP), Assisted Living (AL), Short Term Overnight Respite, and Community Transportation. All services are designed and provided to support independence, enhance self-esteem and promote the dignity of each individual.
With more than 30 years of experience, Winter Growth has three small Assisted Living Homes, each with its own unique atmosphere. All bedrooms in the three centers are private and have in common a sense of energy. Each is furnished and decorated by the resident, family, and/or Winter Growth staff and reflect the unique personality of each resident. Unlike many other smaller Assisted Living programs, all three Assisted Living Homes have awake night staff and residents see a Registered Nurse five days a week, not just once per 45 days as regulations require. Residents also benefit from their convenient attendance in the Adult Medical Day Programs that offer a full day of therapeutic activities, medical monitoring, rehabilitative services, and counseling by licensed social workers.
To help create a caring environment where people can celebrate life and age in place, Winter Growth’s Adult Medical Day Programs deliver a variety of activities to best serve their diverse population. Activity groups are facilitated to continue lifelong interests and explore new ones. Winter Growth’s activity staff, along with the rest of the clinical staff, are in tune with what activities are most appropriate for their participants. Also, all buildings are created in a home-like setting and have high levels of natural and full spectrum lighting to assist the visually impaired and help elevate moods. Wide hallways, handrails and a constant elevation deter falls and allow residents with mobility assistive devices to move about easily. Single color carpeting throughout also aids mobility by avoiding misperception of depth changes that can occur with color changes. Enclosed interconnected courtyards provide protective and inviting spaces.
While the combined housing and day programs are less than most quality Assisted Living programs alone, as a non-profit organization, all fees received by Winter Growth go directly back into the provision of quality services for its day participants and residents. Winter Growth strives for continuous improvement throughout the organization based on experience, education and Best Practices. To help embrace everyone’s right to have a life with purpose, meaning, joy, and satisfaction, Winter Growth invites you to come and celebrate life with them!
