Windsor offers a wide range of advanced nursing programs and specialty services which promotes healing, reduced infection and proactive preventative measures.

These advanced services include (listed in alphabetical order):

  • Bariatrics – Obese patients are defined as bariatric when they have a body mass index (BMI) that is equal to or greater than 30. BMI is used to measure weight in relation to height. Windsor provides special equipment, including beds, commodes, and lifts that bariatric patients require for proper care.
  • “Care in Place” – Residents with acute conditions that require additional care can receive many treatments and procedures in a Windsor facility by our nurses and therapists. Care-in-Place enables residents to remain safely at the care center and to receive care provided by nurses whom they already know. This can prevent a potentially dangerous transfer to an acute hospital for care that can be provided something that can be done at Windsor. We can also offer services through Telehealth visits that allow you to speak to your physician and get needed information electronically rather than the inconvenience of having to be transported to an office visit for a consultation.

Modalities can be utilized to impact underlying deficits related to pain, falls, contractures, wound healing, continence improvement, and osteoarthritis.
