Meet the folks who work at Windsor Place
A bit about the Windsor Place team...
Windsor Place is a Salem, Oregon residential facility specializing in TBI care with a strong commitment to rehabilitative goals designed to enable adults with traumatic brain injuries to achieve their highest level of personal independence in a stable and caring setting.
Windsor Place nurtures an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect which allows us to attract and retain quality, caring staff through every level of the organization. We believe that dignity and respect are the basic foundations of care at every level of the organization, and that ongoing encouragement and support helps those we serve to realize their highest level of independence and greatest potential.
Susan Hunter, Executive Director
Providing person-centered living and care is a passion of Susan's. She has been a leader in community based care for over 30 years and has held leadership and committee positions in Leading Age Oregon, Leading Age National, the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards and various community organizations.
Susan's past communities have been honored with a national award for Innovative Housing Programs, the Book of Golden Deed's Award for community service and a state-wide award for dining services.
Today, a partnership between the Windsor Place Board of Directors, staff, residents and families, medical and therapy communities, and Northwest Seniors and Disability Services, provide a vibrant and thriving community for those who suffer from traumatic brain injuries... a community which focuses on respect, relationships and maximizing each person's independence. Susan feels blessed to be part of such a compassionate and caring organization.
