Highview House is situated on the outskirts of  the city of Inverness, with panoramic views overlooking the Moray Firth, and  beautiful award-winning gardens. All our rooms have en-suite facilities and we encourage residents to personalise them with their treasured possessions.

The home cares for people who need 24-hour nursing care and people living with dementia, who are supported in our dedicated Memory Lane Community. We have a skilled and compassionate group of care staff lead by registered nurses, who are offered specific training programmes to meet your needs. if you were to join us you would have a named nurse and keyworker allocated to support you on a personal and social basis.

Dementia Care

Highview House has a dedicated Memory Lane Community that provides a safe, homely environment for people living with dementia, which has been designed following these guidelines ensuring the care we provide supports residents’ freedom of choice. We aim to maintain their life-skills, improving their self-esteem and helping them to maintain and develop their independence while they are living with us.

Staff undertake specialist dementia care training developed by our team of Dementia Care Specialists and academic partners, the Centre for Dementia Research at Leeds Beckett University. Together they ensure our training programmes are informed by the very latest thinking. We ensure that the people we support feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia to the full.

Choosing a care home for a loved one or friend who may be experiencing dementia can be difficult and we have created a guide to showcase how we ‘Enrich the lives of people living with dementia’ in our care home.

The home has a dedicated group of staff that will meet your individual needs, from the quality and cleanliness of the building to your individual personal care and social needs. We believe in providing a person-centred approach to the care we offer and we encourage you and your relatives to lead on the services you want.

Our chef will ensure you have the foods you like and will cater for any specialist nutritional needs you may have. We use local providers for our fresh fruit and veg as well as our meat. Dining is an important part of the day and we want to offer you a service that gives you choice, served by our chef and his hospitality team

We have close links with other healthcare specialists who visit the home as and when required, from GPs, chiropodists and specialist nurses. We have a physiotherapist attached to the home who would be available should you require any physiotherapy.

We like to think we provide a comfortable and reassuring environment to live in at Highview. We offer social activities everyday which can be arranged for groups or on an individual basis.

We would encourage you to come and see for yourself what we have to offer. Please feel free to contact us any time to come and have a cup of tea and a chat.

Types of care

The care we provide is delivered in a way that promotes independence for those who live in our home. Where possible, it is important that residents are encouraged to perform daily tasks independently or with minor support. Our services are devised with individualised treatment in mind for each person, so getting to know everyone and understanding their needs is imperative to delivering bespoke, person-centred care.

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Elsbeth Russell

General Manager

Hi, my name is Elsbeth, and I am the General Manager here at Highview House. Welcome to our website!

I qualified as a nurse in 1993 and have always worked within the private sector, living and working in Newcastle upon Tyne. I worked for a local, family run nursing care company before Barchester, making my way through their career ladder during my time there.

In 2013 my family and I made a quality of life decision to move away from life in the city to Inverness, where I have worked within the locality as a care home manager ever since.

I enjoy making a positive difference in people’s lives. My appointment at Highview will bring me into contact with a new group of people and it is my hope that I can touch their lives in a productive and meaningful way.

My greatest achievement to date has to be being nationally acknowledged as the 'Nurse of the Year' in 2015 for the excellent environment and care given to people living with dementia in my care home. I still find it very difficult to believe that a care home manager from Inverness was recognised for just doing her job.
