Alzheimer's Care

Highview Residence Extras


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 5:00 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.

Extra Care Fee ($800 monthly):

This fee comes into effect when a Resident becomes non-ambulatory, and requires a mechanical lift. The POA is advised, assessment provided, and change in care plan. No advance notice is required for the change to this monthly fee as per the criteria herein.
