High-Crest Place

Situated close to downtown New Glasgow, this beautifully renovated 28-bed turn-of-the-century landmark has maintained the elegance of its lustrous past while incorporating the conveniences of the present.

We provide you with the freedom of independent living and the comfort and security of around-the-clock professional care.

We are located in the Town of New Glasgow, one and a half hours Northeast, and three and a half hours Southwest of Sydney. We are happy to accommodate a personal visit to our facility if you wish, and to answer your questions and discuss your specific health needs. We are here for you, and look forward to seeing you at High-Crest Place soon.

Our fee includes many services and amenities, including 3 nutritious meals per day, daily housekeeping and laundry services, 24 hour security and numerous activities planned for your enjoyment. As well, we will do our best to meet any requests you might have.

Some things to enjoy at High-Crest Place

• A recreation coordinator who organizes a variety of social and special events for the benefit of the residents.
• A bright, spacious room for facility functions, or to gather with family for an afternoon.
• Taking day trips to various places around the community
• Outside groups who visit the Facility to entertain and socialize with residents
• A key-punch entry system for secure building access
• A registered nurse available 24 hours a day
• Comfortable surroundings, and a positive environment.

To make your new home feel comfortable, we encourage new residents to bring things from home that will add a personal touch to their private bathroom and bedroom. Bring in pictures for the walls; family photo albums; a favorite quilt or bed spread or other items or special mementos. One might also want to bring a television, clock or radio. Bedroom furniture is provided, but you may wish to use some of your own.

Laundry is done in house, unless family would prefer to take things home to launder. It is wise to mark all items of clothing prior to admission, as this ensures the safe return of all items from laundry.

Residents may retain their personal doctor or if necessary, our house doctor will be appointed.

Please remember that all residents’ medications are closely monitored, so new residents and families are asked not to bring any medications from home.
