“I have nothing but kind words to say about the staff. They know their business and they make my mom feel safe and well cared for. A huge thank you!”

-Daughter of Resident

“Both my parents have moved into Northport Highlands. My mother needed it more so than my father, but it comforted my family and I knowing that this is the place that is taking care of them. They have such a friendly staff, the place is always clean and it seems like there is always something for the residents to do. I don’t have to worry about my parents getting to any doctor appointments as they are always taken care of. Northport Highlands is very transparent and communicates exceptionally well when it comes to the status of my parents. I have toured 4 places with my parents before they chose this one. They love it and I’m glad they’re happy.”
