Eligibility for admission to Highview is determined after an assessment is done by one of our experienced Nurses. This will ensure the compatibility of the potential Resident’s needs and the care services available. Important areas to be considered are communication, ambulation and responsive behaviours. Dementia is a progressive, degenerative disease, and Highview recognizes the importance of enabling a Resident to stay through to the end of life. A Resident’s ability to walk and help with transfers can decline over time (not only with dementia but also with an aging body), so there is an option to use mechanical lifts for transfers within daily care at Highview (for an additional fee).
