We have my mother-in-law in Givens Highland Farms now and so far, so good after three weeks. We’re satisfied with the staff, the nurses, the CNAs, and the food that they provide. It’s an older place, but it’s very clean and well kept. The only thing is, unless you’re by the window, some of the semi-private rooms are so small that you have to sit on the bed if you’re a visitor, and it’s very expensive. We had my mother-in-law moved to a window room, so she has more room. As far as the care, we don’t have any problems. I think they have a good program. They have music, and this Thursday, they’re having a Christmas gathering for the residents and family members who would like to come.

We visited Highland Farms, and it was very dated. It felt like it was very 1970s-style. It was very dark. I spoke with the ladies who work there, and they were wonderful. I had some friends who had their loved ones there, and they seemed happy there.

Highland Farms was a beautiful place. It was a small community in the mountains. They were building a couple of new sections, so it was expanding. They had different levels of care depending on what you need. The food was good, and the dining room looked good.

I visited my grandfather quite a few times at the Highland Farms Retirement Community before he passed away at the very respectable age of ninety-eight years old. He spent the last seven years of his life there, and never had anything negative to say about the amenities or the staff, though he was such a good natured person in general that I kind of do not think that he would have complained about anything but the most severe of problems. He had always been a very independent person before his stay there though, so I know that it must have been strange for him to depend so completely on others as he did there. He lost his ability to be on his after coming down with pneumonia in china when he traveled there at the age of ninety-one, after his wife passed.I found Highland Farms to be totally adequate for his needs, though it did seem a little dreary and somehow barren, at least on the inside. It does have excellent landscaping though, and he enjoyed going out with his cane to enjoy the outdoors. This is a good place for nature lovers to be, but maybe not for those who like a more upscale living situation. The staff was always very helpful and friendly, and he knew them all by name. I don't think that I would want to spend my last years there, mainly due to how deserted and sparse the hallways and common rooms felt.
