Memory Care at Highland Court

Highland Court is a residence that provides memory care for those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. As you know, memory care goes beyond dining services and medication management (although we do provide those). We know that everyday interactions are what make a difference in the lives of those with memory loss. Our homey community offers individuals an opportunity to connect with peers and health care professionals with ease.

Care staff know each resident by name, as do kitchen staff and administration. The building itself gears towards memory care. Purposeful design offers ample natural lighting, open community spaces and a circular set up. Our care staff update charts and communicate via mobile devices. Thus, hallways have very little sound pollution! The building has a calm feeling about it.  The intentionality of this space is something you can see, feel, and hear. 

Services in the monthly base rent for memory care include:

  • Medication management
  • 3 meals each day and snacks throughout the day
  • Modified diet needs
  • Weekly housekeeping services
  • Personal laundry services
  • All utilities (except telephone and cable)
  • Planned activities, exercise programs and an abundance of social opportunities
  • 24-hour staff for supervision and assistance
  • RN oversight
  • Regular monitoring for general health and well-being
  • Apartment maintenance

*If the services included in the monthly base rent are not enough to maintain independent living, additional personal support services can be added. We can assist in designing a care program to fit individual needs for living as independently as possible. The ‘personal support services fee’ is based on the actual services provided.  We determine services after a personal assessment conducted by our professional team.
