Memory Care – The Cottage

Sunshine and Fun Shared with Family

Spending time together!

Caring for a relative with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of memory impairment requires patience, flexibility, energy and time. When family caregivers feel that the challenges of providing care exceed their abilities, they often consider moving their loved one.

Families have peace of mind knowing that their relatives are receiving exceptional care at The Cottage.

Keep an eye out for announcements regarding our memory care expansion. Grand opening to be Feb/Mar 2014. We’re excited!

 

 

Families are seen as a valuable partner in care!

At The Cottage we are committed to working with families so that together, we can provide and plan care in a timely manner to meet the changing needs of each resident.

Our activity programs are specifically designed to engage dementia residents with various levels of interest and abilities. Group and one-on-one activities are offered by staff, families, and volunteers.  If you would like to be involved, please Contact Us.

Residents are encouraged to visit The Cottage’s enclosed courtyard  garden where flowers, plants, butterflies and humming birds abound, all in a safe and secure setting.
