Richard Winter And Garden View Care Center
Richard Winter is the owner and president of Garden View Care Center. He has also had experience of the home from a family point of view, and his mother spent her final years here.
His mother had lived independently until she was 86 years old, when she suffered a series of falls. Richard and his family were worried about her falling one day with no one realizing that she was in trouble. The decision was made for her to move to Garden View so that there would always be someone there to take care of her needs.
She settled in well and soon began to make friends with the other residents. She enjoyed taking part in the activities and outings that the home put on. Her room faced o the garden and she loved the view.
The medical care that the nursing staff could provide became even more important after a few years when she was diagnosed with dementia. Living at Garden View meant that she was able to spend her final days being cared for with dignity.
Richard believes that seeing first hand the difference Garden View Care Center was able to make to his own family has made him a better president.
