High View Manor installs memorial window for residents lost to COVID-19

MADAWASKA, Maine — Above one of the entrances on the front facade of High View Manor, a new, arced three-pane window etched with six doves marks the memory of the six residents the senior care facility lost to COVID-19 during the pandemic. 

The window went up on May 21, an idea that came from High View’s nursing staff. Mike’s Signs & Designs applied the decal pro bono.

Administrator Nancy Daigle said ideas like these are emblematic of the facility’s personal commitment to its residents. Since the window went up, she said the facility has received positive feedback from the loved ones of the residents who died from the coronavirus.

“That’s what makes High View, High View,” Daigle said.

Around Christmas time 2020, High View experienced an outbreak of COVID-19, which claimed several of its residents’ lives.
