Wonderful home environment & caring staff.

We toured a couple of months ago and Mom has adapted perfectly to the Highlands. Staff are very caring and treat my Mom like a princess.

Barbara - My loved one(s) live(s) or lived in this community
A very caring place

We came up with a list that seemed to be a fit for my mother, then she went and visited them all and there was just something about Highlands on the East Side. She liked the size of the community, it wasn't overwhelming, she liked the apartments, and she instantly felt connected to the people here and very welcomed. The apartments were way bigger than expected, very large and spacious with a huge storage closet. I have eaten there and my mom loved it, it was very tasty. They were accommodating and had a large variety for residents to choose from. They served restaurant style. My favorite part about the community has been the staff members, they took their time with each person and were very caring. I would highly recommend. I couldn't have asked for anything better.

Perfect Fit for my Mother!

We had a wonderful tour at the Highlands with [name removed] and the Community felt warm and inviting from the minute we walked thru the door. The staff was very friendly and personable in greeting my mother. After we left the Highlands we knew right away that it was the perfect fit for my mother. She moved in the next week and is now thriving in her new home at the Highlands on the East Side.
