The meals are prepared for the Residents in the kitchen of each house from ‘scratch’. The sounds, sights and delicious smells help to cue the Resident that a meal is coming. Breakfast is prepared individually for Residents as they wake up in the morning. Lunch and dinner are generally served at noon and 5:30 pm with healthy snacks and hydration in between.
Each cottage has a dining room that seats the residents who live there and even some guests who join us for a meal! This makes for a peaceful dining experience allowing greater enjoyment and success for persons with Dementia.
Family and friends are welcome to visit at any time.
Highview Residences has a Resident Hospitality Fee that covers the cost of guest meals, so family and friends can join us for a meal as often as they like.
At Highview, the definition of “care services” is broad and we do not have “levels of fees” based upon the care a Resident requires. Examples of some of the services covered by the all-inclusive monthly fee are cueing and/or assistance with:
- Personal hygiene
- Continence care
- Administration of medications
- Providing of meals and snacks
- Dementia care specialized programming
These additional optional services may be obtained, at an additional cost:
- Dental hygienist
- Foot care
- Incontinence products (as needed)
- Laboratory services
- Medical supplies
- Mobile X-Ray
- Private cable TV and internet
- Private telephone
It is recommended that Residents roster with the family physician at Highview. The exception would be if the Resident has a local GP who will make home visits.
