It was a big adjustment moving from Residential Living to Assisted Living. Having been making all of my own decisions, the transition to Assisted Living has truly been a blessing and the staff has been so friendly and helpful. The reassurance I feel to know that I can call for assistance at any time of the day or night and someone is always available is very encouraging. The extra assistance needed to have someone go with me for appointments, has been comforting and has also provided me the opportunity to talk with staff one on one. I have never felt that I am putting anyone out, and appreciate the input from staff in making decisions helpful.
Living at Windsor Park, in Assisted Living, has been quite wonderful. I am grateful that the services are available to me. There is the option of being able to do things independently or with the friends that I have made. I am appreciative of the help that is available when it is necessary.
My husband and I moved into Windsor Park Manor seventeen years ago. We enjoyed our nice apartment and the resident activities for seven years together. After that time, due to illness, Ed, my husband, fell and was admitted to the Johnson Health Care unit. He received excellent care. Now I had a bout with spinal stenosis and I was hospitalized - it was then my turn to transfer to Johnson Health Care. After I received such good care, I chose to remain in Johnson. Now, at age 95, I have been in West 2 of Johnson for almost four years. Since then I have been stimulated with activities here and I play games with former friends many nights a week. Too, I have been Resident Council President for Johnson three and a half years. I highly recommend, my home, Windsor Park, to everyone.
What I liked about my stay in the Johnson Health Care. 1.) The people who served at all hours of the day and night. 2.) The nurses who made taking medications easy. 3.) The serving of food is done well. 4.) The staff who helped those who can’t help themselves- especially during mealtime. Overall, I had a positive experience.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in the Johnson Health Care Center? Welcome to JHCC! If you become ill or are in need of physical care you can’t manage at home, Johnson is the place for you! You’ll find that JHCC is just what you need. I speak from a 90-day experience of TLC and medical expertise and care, which included 24-hour-a-day care and three meals a day, plus physical and occupational therapy. My personal experience was a delight in every aspect, and I was very sorry to leave. Therapy with JHCC resulted in what can truly be called a miracle, as my surgeon announced after my first post-operative visit. So, spread the good (actually, great) news, “Johnson is wonderful!” And PS, it is very close to the London Grille. See you there!

Residents and staff had a wonderful time at our recent Annual Community Picnic. We welcomed about 600 residents, employees, and their families on a beautiful sunny day! Attendees enjoyed hot dogs and hamburgers, salads, watermelon, popcorn, and ice cream. Our dunk tank was a huge hit - Executive Director Ben Stevens was in it for the first time this year! We had games such as bag toss, bocce ball, badminton, frisbees, giant Jenga and Connect Four, and an inflatable slide. Guests also enjoyed the balloon artist and meeting comfort dog, Eve, who was happy to greet everyone too.

Jim Kleinwachter from the Conservation Foundation came to Windsor Park on August 2nd to present our campus with the Conservation@Home certification. This award recognizes the efforts of some passionate residents and Facilities Maintenance staff to create earth-friendly planting areas that conserve water, utilize native plants, and provide habitats for native pollinators and wildlife.
Jim gave a short presentation of the certificate and what had to be done to earn it to a group of about 40. He called Windsor Park “an exemplary community” for our efforts to preserve and protect our property with environmentally-friendly landscaping. Then a group of 25 took a hike outside to watch Jim install a landscape marker in one of our native-plant landscape areas. ... See moreSee less
