My brother liked The Highlands as they seemed engaged to whatever they were doing.

My aunt and uncle moved into assisted living in The Highlands. When we went to visit, my uncle took us around, and I noticed how happy everyone seemed and how friendly all the caregivers were. The rooms were nice, pleasant, and roomy. I would say it is spacious, and it is more than enough room than they probably needed, so it was roomy for them. The dining room is very nice. I know they have a list of activities every day, but I'm not sure exactly what they have. My aunt has mentioned bingo and cards. Sometimes they have guests that come in to entertain them. It seems very safe and secured, but I don't know too much about it. They had a woman at the front desk, and they had a book for you to login. I would say the outside ground was very small. It would have been nicer if they had a larger yard or a larger area on the outside for the residents to enjoy.

I found The Highlands. It's wonderful. My sister has never been happier. She's taking much better care of herself. She cares about what she looks like again. It's like a wonderful, friendly hotel. They also have an Alzheimer's unit. They integrate well with the residents.
They took her down to Foxwoods to gamble. That's a gambling place in the next state, so they took a trip down there. She and another group also went to another place here in Rhode Island. They have someone that they do word games with, and they do memory games, and they read to each other. Then they give them play money, and then they have auctions, and they can buy things with their play money. It's really quite interesting. She's so excited to be there.
The maintenance person is a gem. He runs the staff well, and the staff is very, very helpful. It's a team that's working very well together.
