In 1988, when nurses Mary Louise Horn and Judy Brogren first began Cedar Hill, the idea of continuing care (a model of care that attends to a wide range of retirement needs within one residence or campus) was in its infancy, showing up in journals and manifesting in a smattering of assisted living facilities. 30 years later, Cedar Hill is one of the most respected Continuing Care Communities in the region.
"People can come here when fairly independent & get basic services of housekeeping, meals, transportation, & maybe they don't need any personal care. As they stay here and age in place, there comes a time when they might need help with medication, bathing, therapy, so we have different steps, different levels of care and services."
