The Barbara and Merrill Huffman Memory Care Suites opened in 2022, with help from a generous donation from the Huffman family. Their donation to The Windsor of Savoy helped transform nine private apartments located on the second level of Windsor Court into the Memory Care Suites. These suites feature 24-hour on-site availability of a specialized nursing and caregiving staff – certified in dementia care by the Alzheimer’s Association®.
Residents of our Memory Care Suites receive the specific daily help they need from Carle Foundation Hospital Magnet® nurses and caregivers, while enjoying supervised access to all the amenities Windsor Court has to offer. With Independent Living, Assisted Living and now Memory Care, our residents can comfortably age in place at The Windsor of Savoy. As care needs change, residents can remain in their community of friends. And all-inclusive pricing means no worrying about increased fees with changing care needs.
The Memory Care Suites include eight one-bed/one-bath suites and one two-bed/two-bath suite. Each suite features a living area, kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom. All are spacious, private, secure and safely monitored. An exclusive dining room and lounge provide space for three meals a day, snacks, activities, exercise, relaxation and more.
This tailored lighting system – designed to stimulate residents' circadian rhythm (which regulates sleep and wake cycles) – can contribute to significant decreases in anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance, sundowning and wandering.
A soothing color palette, thoughtful design and two tranquil community rooms – featuring scenic views of our private pond and graceful waterfowl – make for a calming atmosphere for residents and their loved ones.
