With this holistic wellness in mind, we at The Villages of Windcrest take your growth seriously. We are committed to equipping you with all the tools you need to explore your interests, achieve your personal goals and thrive on your terms.
These core ideas are integrated into all facets of life at The Villages of Windcrest, from customizable one-on-one programs to industry-leading team members’ training. “Salus” is a Latin term that means “well-being,” “health” and “safety.

We also have a signature wellness philosophy catered to residents with memory impairments, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Derived from the Latin word meaning “to thrive,” Valeo is the perfect name for our memory care wellness philosophy. Utilizing the same principles that inform the Salus philosophy, Valeo helps those with memory impairments meet their goals, live with purpose, and thrive to their full potential.
SALUS (SAL-us), noun. Latin for “well-being.”
Salus is our trademark wellness philosophy that focuses on your potential to achieve your personal goals through engagement and connection. In addition to the services and amenities of the senior living community, the Salus philosophy is integrated throughout The Villages of Windcrest. You’ll find no shortage of classes and events, programs and ways to connect with others to sustain or improve your health and well-being. You, your family and The Villages of Windcrest team alike are encouraged to use your unique talents and their professional skills through our signature Salus programs for assisted living.
THE FOUR COMPONENTS OF WELLNESS
The Salus wellness philosophy centers on holistic care, maintaining and improving what is commonly referred to as the four components of wellness:
- Physical: Engaging in self-care through both activity and proper nutrition
- Social: Strengthening and developing existing and new relationships — both with people and pets
- Intellectual: Performing creative, stimulating exercises to re-ignite memories and preserve cognition
- Spiritual: Reserving time to connect with one’s personal beliefs
To age successfully requires a physically active and mentally stimulating lifestyle, strong social engagement, an environment that supports your unique goals and — perhaps most importantly — a sense of purpose and meaning. Salus equips you with the tools you need to meet these goals.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Infectious Disease Protocols
What are the protocols if a resident tests positive for an infectious disease?
Protocols vary and are dependent upon the location and health status of the resident if they are confirmed positive. If the resident is in the hospital, they remain there until stable for discharge. If a resident tests positive while being in the community and they are stable, all infection control protocols are implemented including the use of full PPE. If a resident is confirmed to be COVID positive while living in the community and their health in unstable, they will be transferred to the hospital for stabilization and further evaluation. Also, dependent on the infectious disease and if they are still considered contagious also factors into the protocols put into place to care for the resident.
How are meals, medications and personal care delivered during a quarantine?
We are delivering meals to each apartment or suite. We are also utilizing refreshment carts to provide in-between meal snacks and specialty items.
All medication, treatment and care is being provided in Resident suites.
Are residents that test positive for an infectious disease relocated to dedicated areas of the community for treatment?
Currently, a separately dedicated area of the community for COVID19-positive residents is not required unless mandated by the local state and health department. Should a dedicated quarantine area be required, a cohort plan will be administered.
