    Diminished abilities or stage of disease that would result in a transfer or discharge:
    Highland is a licensed Home for the Aged and as such is not considered a "Skilled Nursing Facility" or a "Medical Care Facility". An individual whose condition requires 24 hour medical monitoring or medical treatment would be advised to seek admission into a skilled care facility. Highland has been very successful in caring for individuals with advanced dementia diseases, including many individuals with negative behavior issues. We are a small facility that specializes in memory care, we are a "locked down" secure unit and we maintain high staff to resident ratios to ensure that residents (and staff) are safe and adequately supervised. It is extremely rare that someone could be asked to leave Highland due to behavior alone. We work closely with the Geriatric Psychiatric department at the local hospital to help people cope with their dementia disease and to find a comfortable existence with us here at Highland.
    Special care programs offered for Alzheimer's and Dementia residents:
    Every aspect of every program, policy and procedure has been created to support individuals living with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of Dementia. Highland's management and staff work together with families and medical care professionals to discover the optimum combination of care options to meet every individual’s unique situation or circumstances.
