One Campus.  All Levels of Care.

The Highlands at Pittsford is the only university-based retirement community in the Rochester, NY area with all levels of senior care on on a single campus.  Our community is situated on the outskirts of the Village of Pittsford and is just a short walk away from shops, restaurants, the Erie Canal, and the Pittsford Library.  Featuring our signature Independent Living Patio Homes (The Cottages) as well as Independent Living Apartments (Hahnemann Square Apartments), Assisted Living Apartments (Laurelwood), and a Skilled Nursing Home (The Living Center), the campus is perfect for riding bicycles, enjoying the peaceful landscape, or meeting friends for a walk.  Adult Day Care (Meadowbrook), Short-term Rehabilitation, and Dialysis are also offered at The Living Center.
