    Winter Growth is located in Howard and Montgomery Counties. The buildings are furnished and decorated to feel like a home with a warm and cozy environment. Enclosed courtyards with raised beds for gardening, ponds, bird feeders and outdoor furniture provide outdoor activity space. Centrally located near shopping centers, grocery stores, and restaurants. There are several individual activity rooms to allow for programming at different cognitive levels and different interests.
