    Highlights
    At Windcrest, our residents have the opportunity to enjoy life to the fullest despite the devastating effects of Alzheimer's disease or related dementias. They live and interact in a "failure free" environment that encourages them to draw upon former abilities and memories while enjoying meaningful activities in the present. Windcrest Alzheimer's Care Center offers a uniquely designed residential environment that offers maximum privacy to each resident. The decor promotes comfort, security, and a sense of peace. Five distinct physical areas match the levels of the disease to provide the necessary surroundings throughout each stage. Each area is self-contained with its own outside courtyard, activity area and bathing area.
