Description

"Hello. First I would like to say that this is my very first company I have worked for that has taken the time to send out a message full of great info. With such positivity and with everyone being included in the events coming up. I have only been with Highgate for about 1 week and in that week I have not only seen staff for above and beyond for residents but something you don't see everyday is staff working together with a positive attitude. This is an amazing company and I feel blessed to be apart of it. I work for Highgate because they set themselves apart from others, they exceed the expectations of standards. I am excited for my new adventure with all of you!"-Stephanie, Assistant Healthcare Director
