Our Leadership

Caring for the Community

Over a century ago and under acute foresight, caring citizens appointed themselves the duty to provide the community’s elderly with a safe place to call home. This virtuous act inspired new generations to proudly carry on this privilege, offering their time and expertise to ensure Highview’s residents continue to lead healthy and happy lives. Today, our board is a well-rounded and diverse group of responsible citizens with backgrounds ranging from healthcare to spiritual wellness. We invite you to meet them below.
