Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or dementia can be difficult, exhausting and emotionally draining. At some point, you may need an alternative to taking this on yourself. That’s when it’s time to call Highgate.
We provide safe, compassionate, round-the-clock care in The Cottage, our community designed for residents with memory loss.
It’s a cozy, secure environment with highly trained care partners whose mission is to understand the needs, desires and routines of each resident in order to personalize their care. Whether it’s nighttime wandering, confusion, repetitive questions, incontinence, or just wanting “to go home” – we understand – and have the expertise to handle these concerns. No matter how challenging the situation, it’s not a problem. It’s what we do.
And once that caregiving role is shifted to Highgate, a resident’s spouse and/or family members are free to simply enjoy the relationship again. It will give you such peace of mind to know your loved one is being cared for in a safe, compassionate, joyful community. We encourage visits anytime, and invite you to join us for frequent family events.
To ensure our residents are living each day to the fullest, we go above and beyond everyday care. We make sure they’re getting nutritious foods and plenty of hydration. We encourage them to stay as physically, mentally and socially active as possible. We provide exercise classes, music therapy and relaxing massages. And we offer a variety of activities and outings for fun.
It takes energy, devotion and love to care for those with memory loss. It takes the kind of people who work at Highgate.
