We provide a safe, secure and nurturing community where our residents are valued, loved and respected. We offer resident-centered care in a home specifically designed for those with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
Peaceful Home-Like Setting
Highview Residences is comprised of two houses: Franklin House & Chapin House. Each house consists of two cottages joined by a central administrative area. Constable Cottage and Harris Cottage are with Franklin House. Taylor Cottage and Smith Cottage are within Chapin House.
Participation is Encouraged
Each of our cottages is home to between 12 and 14 Residents and includes private and common spaces. By dividing our residents into these four smaller living spaces, it creates an environment that fosters the residents’ interests and involvement in daily house events, while also providing opportunities for quiet time.
Our Activities Program is designed to meet the needs of residents with dementia. These activities may include helping to prepare some of the snacks and meals, setting the tables, folding the laundry or working in the garden. Recreational and therapeutic programs are offered, especially in the areas of art and music. Outside activities, gardening, and picnics ensure that the gardens are enjoyed. Some activities are spontaneous while others are scheduled.
Supporting a Well-Lived Life
Each private bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom, which includes a barrier-free shower, wash basin and toilet. Bathing in a bathtub is available for those who prefer. Each resident’s private room is furnished with their own belongings as this helps them find to find the space familiar and comforting. Common spaces reflect the areas in a traditional home including an open-concept kitchen, large, bright family-room, two sunrooms per cottage and a screened-in porch. We offer breakfast on-demand, so residents can sleep to the time they typically wake, while lunch and supper are at noon and 5:30 pm, with healthy snacks available throughout the day. Family and guests are encouraged to join their loved-one for meals, just as you would at home.
