Compassionate Care in a Supportive Environment
Residents thrive while socializing with neighbors and enjoying any one of our many planned activities and outings. Our activities department loves to include families in events and many families make a point of visiting when local entertainers visit. Our annual family picnic and Father’s Day Car Show are family favorites, and you never know who is going to drop in for a visit, whether it’s an acapella choir, local schoolchildren for Adopt-a-Grandparent Day, or bunnies, baby chicks, or mini horses from nearby farms! We also enjoy regular visits from local clergy to nourish the spirit.
Cedar Hill in Windsor began as a residential care home before expanding into skilled nursing and short term rehab for the elderly. We take pride in the personalized care we provide our Health Care Center residents.
There are unique challenges for individuals who are living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias, and for their loved ones. We developed Teddy’s Place as a secure area to offer specialized care in the nursing home setting to offer programs and activities that are specifically designed to engage and connect individuals with memory deficiencies. Our professional, compassionate staff has the experience and training in assisting and caring for residents with these special needs. We offer a safe environment with ample space for walking and activities both inside and outside. Here, as in all parts of our community, we take the time to get to know each person’s individual requirements and preferences. During new resident transition, we emphasize the familiar, calming routines that help ease individual into stress-free living in our home-like community.
A recent surgery, injury, or illness may prompt the need for a short-term physical rehabilitation stay. At Cedar Hill, we offer a coordinated, holistic approach to rehabilitation. Our interdisciplinary team is comprised of professionals specializing in providing physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy. Individual evaluations are completed and a comprehensive treatment plan is created that is designed to assist you in achieving your highest level of independence.

Physical therapy is the skilled treatment of musculoskeletal and neuromuscular problems that affect a person’s ability to move and function. A physical therapist will work with you to evaluate your strength, mobility, and flexibility. Our physical therapists prepare an individualized exercise program to increase your strength and promote better physical performance.
Occupational therapy focuses on giving a person the “skills for the job of living” an independent and satisfying life. Our therapist will evaluate your ability to complete everyday tasks including cooking, bathing, and dressing. They work with individuals whose daily living routines have become a challenge to incorporate new strategies and equipment to help you live more comfortably at home.
Speech Therapists work with people who have trouble speaking and communicating, due to stroke or other complications. They also work with individuals who are having problems swallowing and people who have cognitive disorders, such as dementia. A speech therapist can help individuals and families develop new ways to communicate.
