Welcome to Highland Health and Rehabilitation

Located just north of Lake Padden on the south side of Bellingham, Highland Health and Rehabilitation combines the best features of a quality care facility. We’re small enough to be a genuine community where personalized services and knowledge of our residents means superior care, but we’re large enough to be a full care facility offering a comprehensive array of services that are expected in a senior care center.

We recognize the unique needs of each resident. We offer rooms with many amenities provided to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible. These amenities include phone, television, wi-fi, electric beds, and assistance with showering or bathing in our whirlpool tub. In order to help our residents recuperate as quickly as possible, we offer therapy seven days per week, rather than the standard six days many facilities offer. We also have 19 private suites which allow our short stay residents a quieter space to heal and rest. Our goal is to assist our residents to return home when that is your desire. Our Safe Transitions program is designed to assist in a successful return home. We take pride in the success of our short stay residents.

We provide 24-hour high-quality nursing care for all of our residents. In addition, respite care is available so that caregivers can have a few days off – perhaps time to take a vacation or catch up on much-needed rest. Meanwhile, their loved one can experience a change of pace in a stimulating, safe environment.

At Highland Health, we understand how choosing the right center for your healthcare needs often comes at an unexpected time and with a variety of stressful decisions. Our family is ready to help your family. We invite you to explore our website, call us, send an email or better yet, come for a tour.
