  • A small and amazing place

    High Plains definitely puts the well being of the resident first. One of their philosophies is that you turn every encounter into a positive memory. They actually train all of the staff in this. They are so focused on the residents. The communication is excellent. During this Coronavirus, the head of staff has had a weekly zoom meeting for all families to update us on how they are handling the virus. They have been helping my brother have facetime visits with us a few times a week as well as they encourage window visits. They have very little staff turnover which adds to how the staff and residents relationships are so personal and interactive. It is just an amazing place. My brother is the happiest I have ever seen him in his life.

  • High Plains is a very compassionate and caring Center, I would recommend it to everyone.

    I cannot praise High Plains Alzheimer's Special Care Center enough for how they treated me and my family at this stage of my husband's life. [Name removed] and [name removed] were very compassionate when we went to visit the facility before my husband was moved there. He was there for only a short time but the nurses and staff were amazing. Thank you for such great care.

  • An Amazing Place

    I can not say enough about how wonderful High Plains Alzheimer's Special Care Center has been for my brother. In Nebraska, Alzheimer's patient's can not be restrained even if they are sitting in a chair so my brother has fallen several times because he refuses to stay seated. He has even figured out how to disarm the warning signal on his chair and bed so the nurses and the staff have been amazing in watching him because of this. They laught and tells us it is a good thing he's so cute and we love having him here. They make sure there are lots of activies for the residents, in fact, we had a sing-along and they had song books with large words and my brother sang all 20 songs. We're having an ice cream social today. The staff keeps me very well informed and they do have several young men on every shift which is great because my brother perfers a male attendant and when he falls they are better at helping him up. [Removed] loves his PT therapist and does whatever he tells him to do and even the nurse remind my brother "well your therapist said" you have to do this or that and he follows every instruction they give him then. I would recommend High Alzheimer's to everyone in fact I just learned one of my friends is now there and was able to visit with him as well.
