  • 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....

  • 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.
