    If you could select a retirement or senior care community for an aging loved one you would want it to be inviting and comfortable but more importantly, filled with love! At Highgate Senior Living, our Residents judge their experience by the way they are treated as a person. We believe the most important thing we do is hire and retain cheerful, kind, and empathetic people who by the nature of who they are go above and beyond to create a truly wonderful living experience for all of our residents, regardless of their decline with aging. At Highgate Senior Living, our community design and unique "Personal Life Enrichment Program" are intended to instill a feeling of self worth and value to our residents. Specifically, our programming is designed to provide quality of life and slow the aging process. Our program offers a combination of exercise, interactive music therapy, aromatherapy, spa experiences, mental stimulation, and meaningful socialization...all combine to create the Highgate experience. Our staff focus on what our residents can do, rather than what they cannot. We believe that in spite of aging, an older adult still has a world to experience...and we are there to support them. We truly believe that Highgate Senior Living is very special. Whether a person is looking for Independent retirement living, Assisted Living, or Memory assistance for Alzheimer's or other forms of Dementia we believe that you will find that Highgate is the home you are looking for. It's not just a place for your loved one to stay when they can no longer live alone, but a place to live, laugh, enjoy life, make new friends, and be loved when you cannot be with them. A place to call home. Highgate Senior Living communities are located throughout the northwest in Washington, Montana and California. Aging does not have to be isolating! With all our hearts, we welcome you to our home, our family, and our community.
