I visited this facility

I was not really impressed with the assisted living or memory care environments of Country Cottages as far as the facility's newness and renovations, staff, and activities. The place didn’t look very homey; it looked more institutional to me.

I visited this facility

Country Cottages was small, warm, and receptive. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and functional. The staff during the tour were warm and accommodating. They had good activities. They engage them in various games, and they were eager to help the residents.

They have 1 "homemaker" per building which is 16 patients. They are chronically short staffed with staff having to work double shifts which can make them short tempered. The food is more bad than good. On our first visit, a patient was telling us how bad the food was but we were being "wined and dined" and the food we were fed that day was not what the residents got. I wish we would have listened to her. There are no activities. With that being said, it is not a horrible place but they just do not keep adequate staff.

My mom has full-blown Alzheimer's so we placed her in a memory care unit in Country Cottages. She has her own room with wood floors and a bathroom. The facility is a U-shaped building so it's easier for her to find places and not get lost as much. It's pretty clean. They have a little garden in the middle but you can't go out there unless one of the nurses is with you. The staff are very nice, very polite and they know what they're doing. They're personable with the residents. They take really good care of them. They do a lot of fun games. Throughout the day, they have activities scheduled so residents are kept busy all day long. The foods are sometimes pretty good, but at times, not that good. However, I think this facility need more staff members.
