An oasis within the city, Highfield is located in a quiet, sunny spot surrounded by beautiful gardens. Close to the shops, you’ll be able to go out with your family and friends to local cafes or to the mall.
Our lovely courtyard is a great place to relax and have a chat in the sun. Or you can help tend our fruit and veggie patch, the produce from which we often use in our tasty home-cooked meals.
Our carers are famous for going the extra mile and love having fun. They can often be found marching down corridors, arm in arm with residents, singing at the top of their lungs.
Features of Highfield:
• Friendly to make you feel at home.
• 24 hour assistance.
• Outdoor spaces to enjoy while you relax.
• Space for some quiet time.
• Communal dining room.
We enjoy regular outings to local spots like the Botanical Gardens or to explore the surrounding countryside. Given that we’re so close to the seaside, we often go for walks around Caroline Bay or visit the port when cruise ships come in.
We offer a range of activities and entertainment that gives you the opportunity to keep busy, learn new skills and get to know the other residents. You can get involved as much or as little as you like - it’s up to you how your spend your day. View times and dates for our upcoming activities.
