Tour of The Highlands

We had a great tour with The Highlands. It is an older facility but it is well kept. The rooms that we were able to look at were adequate. The only downfall for us was the price for care, but it was a great facility.

My review of The Highlands

Our family had an in person tour, and the experience was really good. The Highlands is a very nice facility, very clean and lovely. However it was more towards independent living and they did not have the nursing services we were looking into for assisted living.

Good and Bad

The community recently has had a lot of mice. There has been a turnover with management. The food has been sub par. The maintenance man has been nice. The prior manager was very nice. There have had some items like cabbage and beef, and they ran out of cabbage. My family has been able to eat with my loved one and the food didn't taste very well. Nice place and apartments. They clean the cars in the winter, and the dining room is beautiful. The activity director has been great and my loved one really likes it. They have a good housecleaning service that comes in and cleans. The setup is nice in the unit. The shower you can walk in and there is no step up. If the food was improved, my score for this community would go up.

Great place for my aunt

We chose this community because of the location, the price, as well as the overall facility. It had an updated, positive, less assisted living/ nursing home feel to it. My aunt is in a studio plus and it is great size. We have eaten with her and the food was very good, there have been no complaints. My favorite part about this community is the overall experience we have had. I would recommend The Highlands.

Just ok

The thing my mother has struggled with at The Highlands is that they have had a lot of staff turnover over the last year. The interactions between staff and residents could be a little better. My mother feels sometimes certain residents are singled out more than others. They have, however, done very well protecting the residents during the Covid-19 pandemic. The isolation is difficult for the residents, however it is keeping them safe. The activities are good, however they could do better. It seems like they are the same every week and no to often changed up. They could ask the residents about what they actually want to do more often, rather than repeating the same thing every week.

Awesome Managers

The new management this year is great! [Name removed] and [name removed] really make an effort to make people happy. They are approachable and make my mother living there feel like family. Portions of food could be better and more buffet brunches at dinnertime could be a good change. The residents could then have a little choice....something special once a month! Otherwise, the activity director and asst. Managers are awesome....friendly and caring.

After reading the reviews, we decided to place one of my parents there. The support staff was very nice, driver, wait staff, etc. but the management and activities director do not appear genuine. They are initially friendly but do not really listen to the suggestions the residents make and patronize them. We are disappointed. Residents are friendly but rarely do you see any laughs at this place.

Met with Alice today. The place is large. My favorite parts were the movie theater. popcorn machine and soft-serve ice cream. There was a fire pit outside too. When entering the building, the dining area is immediately to the right. The 1 bedroom I saw seemed small. Lots of closet space. Balconies are available but there is a waiting list for those.

A nice place with friendly people.

We looked here for options, it was nice, but not exactly what we wanted. It's still in the consideration, but it's not our top choice. I did like it though. A nice place with friendly people.

Warm,welcoming and friendly

Last week i took a day to tour different senior retirement homes for my grandmother and i must say i stopped by the highlands and i was amazed,the staff was warm,welcoming and friendly,the place was clean and there was genuine concern about the residents. i visited around the lunch time hour so i was able to have lunch and it was awesome,i also had small chat with the chef and was happy to find out that his number one priority is to ensure that the residents are healthy,so besides good food,there is also activities that keep the residents active and my grandmother is never the one sit around. I am impress by all i have seen and heard while i was there so i'm definitely gonna put my grandmother here.

Thumps up!

I was checking around for a good a place for my grand-aunt and I was impress with this one out of a bunch of others I visited. The environment is warm and friendly and the food that is superb ...I just have to commend the chef for doing a great job. I believe that my grand-aunt will be well taken care of here. Please keep up the good work!

Nice facility, need a better menu.

The facility is very nice and clean. The staff is very friendly. Great location. While these things are excellent, the food could definitely be a lot better. A lot of the residents feel this way.

My Mother loves the Highlands of Westborough! Scott & Alice Ramsay, and Christianna Pitts are truly committed to excellence. From their friendly smiles the moment my Mother arrived, to assuring me that she is settling in nicely. The Highlands of Westborough is an outstanding community, and I would recommend it to my friends that have elderly parents.

Very nice place!

Although we have not moved our loved one in quite yet, we have been absolutely thrilled by all the help they have provided us, and the compassion and thought they've shown! The Highlands is run by two husband and wife couples, and they obviously take pride in the cleanliness of their facility and the care that it provides. They were very accommodating in setting things up with doctors, and in making sure every tour we took with every family member went well. They've got so many activities here that our loved one is concerned we won't have time to see them all!

Personal attention from management

Blown away by the care, concern, helpfulness and friendliness. We were all treated so kindly while we were placing my brother at Highlands. I would recommend this place for all who can live independently.
