Intravenous therapy, or better known as IV Therapy, is infusion of a liquid substance directly into the vein. IV Therapy is done when a patient needs to replace lost fluids or to receive medication. Traditionally IV therapy was only available in a hospital setting, but that is no longer the case. Hospitals are shortening patient stay, therefore more recovering patients are in need of a post-acute facility.
Windsor Houston provides a path from the hospital to home for many patients across Texas. IV Therapy has become a staple service in most of our facilities. IV Therapy is used to treat dehydration, sudden drop in blood pressure and for other diagnosis, such as diabetes.
IV Therapy may be administered on a regular or intermittent basis, depending on the patients need. Having the skills to perform IV Therapy in the facility is an important key for us to provide healthy environment for our patients.
Caring for wounds is a key skill to master in the long-term care industry. Wound evaluation is important to ensure proper healing and, if necessary, adjusting the treatment. Windsor Houston takes wound care seriously and encourages its nursing staff to become Wound Care Certified. Windsor Houston has a treatment nurse on staff who focuses on wound care treatment.
Having a loved one who is suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia is difficult. Fortunately research is being conducted to understand more about Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. It is not part of the normal aging process. A vast majority of people with Alzheimer’s are 65 and over. Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that gradually worsens over time. Memory loss and disturbances in everyday reasoning are associated with the disease. Unfortunately there is not a current cure, but there is more and more research and attention being brought to the subject.
Dementia is a general term used when the severity of mental ability lost affects your daily life. Memory loss is an example of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of Dementia.
Our facility has skilled and supportive nurses who assist residents with all aspects of living. We keep the environment safe and comfortable so residents feel at home. The extra support is provided to help residents and families feel more at ease with the given care.

Diet is a crucial part of the long-term healthcare industry. We make it a point to provide healthy meal plans with appropriate portions three times a day. Snacks at bedtime and between meals will be provided based upon the resident’s diet.
Providing a clean living environment is a key focus to ensure quality of life. Windsor Houston provides housekeeping services in the common areas, as well as in each resident’s room.
Being active and engaged is an important advantage of living in a long-term care facility. Windsor Houston provides different activities throughout the day.
