Long Term Care
Hyland Crest and Highland Wood are Long Term Care facilities of the Haliburton Highlands Health Services, providing RN, RPN, and PSW services to the residents.
Operated and funded according to Ministry of Health & Long Term Care standards, the two nursing homes provide optimal care for those no longer able to live at home.
Daily activities, nutritional meals, and visiting entertainers help to ensure well-rounded events for those who choose to participate, and privacy in the one and two room suites offer rest and relaxation for those so inclined.
Come and visit any time, provide entertainment, volunteer, or ask for a tour of the home.

The Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) encourages couples to stay together in LTC, and gives priority to the second spouse to join their partner as quickly as possible, if they choose.
Families and friends of residents are welcome to join the Family Council at each home, which advocates on behalf of residents to ensure "That each resident enjoys safe, effective and responsive care that helps them achieve the highest potential quality of life." Please contact the Activity Department at either Highland Wood or Hyland Crest for further details and contact information, or pickup a brochure from the LTC entrance or the HHHS Business Office.
