Highgate Senior Living of Yakima Description
Welcome to Highgate Senior Living in Yakima, WA
Nestled in the beautiful Yakima Valley is the area's warmest and most welcoming senior living community. Highgate at Yakima offers you a relaxing yet stimulating lifestyle in a quiet residential neighborhood on the west side of town, just a couple of blocks from the Chalet Mall Shopping Center and within minutes of medical care, doctors, banks, restaurants and the library.
Highgate at Yakima offers Assisted Living in The Manor, where you can relax with family and friends in the fireside lounge, play cards and sip coffee in the lovely garden courtyard, join us for a baseball game, or take part in one of the scheduled activities in our fabulous new activity room. We'll help with whatever you need, from medication assistance to wheelchair transportation to getting you to your monthly bridge club gathering.
For those affected by Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, we offer a separate and secure residence called The Cottage. Memory Care, Highgate-style, involves myriad ways to stimulate the mind, nourish the body, feed the soul and enrich the day. Nowhere will you find a more compassionate, energetic, devoted staff of caregiving professionals to care for your loved one.
Come. Make yourself at home. Bring your walking shoes, your needlepoint materials, your art supplies, your violin, your golf clubs – whatever you love doing. You can even bring your pet. Unless, of course, it's a horse.
Expect to develop some new interests here as well. Try conductorcise, a new kind of exercise that combines music with mind and movement. Take a yoga class. Learn to use an iPad. Or treat yourself to a hand massage with aromatherapy.
For a sneak peek, take a look at our community photo tour. Then call or email to schedule an in-person tour. We can't wait to meet you.
Assisted Living at Highgate
The cornerstone of Highgate Senior Living is The Manor, our beautiful and homelike Assisted Living community. Comfortable seating areas invite you to settle in front of the fireplace, or join other residents in the TV room to watch your favorite program, or sip coffee and discuss the day's news with friends in the cafe. Captivating artwork, extensive woodwork, large draped picture windows, and comfy furnishings add to the warmth of this charming Manor home.
Here we offer a wide selection of apartment styles, sizes and views. Choose from studios, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms, or one-bedrooms with den. Each apartment has a kitchenette, a large bathroom with walk-in shower, and an emergency call system that offers two-way voice communications with our staff anytime of day or night. In the dining room, you'll enjoy three made-from-scratch meals a day, prepared with fresh, healthy, delicious ingredients for all tastes and dietary needs. You'll appreciate the many choices offered with each meal and at snack time, too.
Even more important are the services we provide our Assisted Living residents. These begin with the basic Hospitality Package, and personal care services can be added as needed. Together with you, your family and your doctor, a Highgate care partner will develop a service plan that is based on your individual needs and preferences.
Our Hospitality Package includes:
Safe and healthful living accommodations
Three nutritious, delicious meals a day
Drinks and snacks throughout the day
Monitoring of personal safety and well-being
Bed, bath and personal laundry services
In-suite emergency call system
Limited transportation to shopping and appointments
Activities, classes, special events, and entertainment
It's more than a secure, compassionate, enriching community. It's home. And the truth is, there's no place like Highgate.
Memory Care at Highgate
At Highgate, we specialize in Alzheimer's and dementia care in The Cottage, a separate and secure residence for those with advancing memory decline. It offers the same kind of comfortable, homelike surroundings as The Manor, but with more individualized care and a higher staff-to-resident ratio.
Residents are encouraged to take part in carefully designed programs that foster individual strengths and maximize the independence and happiness of each resident. Group activities range from personal hobbies to baking or outings or games, to getting together as an extended family to celebrate a special day. We also emphasize the importance of simple, quiet events like sharing a hug, sitting peacefully and holding a hand, telling a little joke, or offering a smile. These moments of joy combine to create an exceptional environment filled with love.
The following Cottage "Signatures" are part of our unique brand of care, designed to be therapeutic rather than simply entertaining:
Best Friends Approach – We get to know our residents as individuals – their interests, their issues and their life stories – so that we can engage them in meaningful conversation and relevant activities.
Spa Bathing – Our bathing specialist knows how to bathe your loved one with care and dignity. Low lights, heated bath towel and soft music combine to make bath time the quintessential soothing experience.
Family-Style Dining – Mealtime is an interactive staff-and-resident event that conjures the feeling of warmth, security and love of being at home.
Foot/Hand Massage – Gentle hands combine touch with essential oils for true relaxation.
Aromatherapy – We use the powerful effects of scent to stimulate appetite, promote calming, help with sleep, and relax while bathing.
Music Therapy – Fond memories are evoked and great sing-alongs occur when the music and mood are right. Music also enhances appetite and improves sleep.
The Cottage provides a full range of amenities and services:
Furnished private or companion suites facing an enclosed garden courtyard.
Large, private bathrooms and showers.
Three made-from-scratch, home-style meals each day.
An around-the-clock, outstanding staff dedicated to making life at Highgate a joyful, fulfilling experience.
Memory Care at Highgate is unparalleled in its compassion and professionalism, with a staff that's 100% dedicated to your loved one's well-being, as well as your family's peace of mind.
