I am a friend or relative of a resident

We were kind of limited because my mom has a little dog. I selected The Cottages because it is a smaller scale facility. Her room is larger which is much more accommodating for her. They have their own chef there on staff and I like the fact that the food is prepared fresh there. I just moved her in last week so I think The Cottages is going to work out fine.

I visited this facility

Upon entering the property, you notice the large amount of available space that appears to be alive in some areas and a ghost town on the other side. There are 7 buildings total and four of the buildings are interlinked into two sets of two. The parking lot is in the center of the property with buildings on the left and the right and one large building at the end. There are sidewalks and handicap ramps, however although there is a ton of space and designated areas for landscape "¦there is not one flower on this entire property. The residence are living in the buildings that appear to best fit their needs according to ability. Building one houses the Nursing station . Once you walk into each building you notice the dining areas.. Each building has a nutrition area and dining area. Nutrition are is the actual kitchen that posses a refrigerator and stove and misc snacks. The nutrition areas are designated for the staff to accommodate the residents and to serve meals. Meals are cooked in the facilities kitchen located in Bld. 5 that does not house residents. He kitchen does accommodate special needs diets serving alternates, however there is only one options offered per meal. The food is actually pretty good, though. Building one, houses the highest functioning clients and has about 13 residents to one assistant. Building two is a lock unit housing clients with mild dementia. At any given time there is about 5 residents to one staff member. The dining area is carpeted, and looks as if its been abandoned for a few years. This unit has a odd feeling, but allows privacy. Bld 3 caters to adults of all ages that need some support with daily living skills. It is shaped like the letter "I", with the ding area in the center. All of the tables and chairs are miss matched and some of the tables have table clothes and others do not. There are two assistants in this building with approximately 10 rooms on each hall with each room housing two residents. Building 4 is another dementia unit that is locked for personal safety. This unit does have a access for residents to go outside onto the porch , with a large fenced grassy area. This door can only be opened by staff.

The other building at the end is closed and is storage. The kitchen is in the far left building. The staff is friendly and I have seen them in action. They interact well with the residents and I believe that they truly care about their quality of life. The down side, in my opinion, is the fact that it is obvious that the owners want to do hat is required to stay open, however do not want to spend the money to make their facility reflect a positive image. This property has a lot of room for improvement. Simple improvements would make this facility a nice one.

Positive factors about The Cottages 1. The staff cares and is attentive to residents needs.

  1. Each room has a bathroom, with a shower

  2. On site repair men, that actually accomplish work orders in an expedited manner.

  3. The food is good!

  4. Each assistant carries a walkie talkie that is activated through a call light system in the Nurses station. In the event of a serious issue the DON is made aware through this call system, increasing the communication of any event.

The negative factors influencing The Cottages 1. The lack of curb appeal.

  1. The lack of desire to make simple changes that could make this property look 100xs better.

  2. The cottages does not have a good activities department. The high function clients do not have many appropriate activities. There are VERY minimal outings, where the residents can actually get away from the facility. Last year I saw only one field trip and it was to the pumpkin patch.

I am a current client of this provider

My father is treated with respect, and all the aides there are taking care of his needs. And he says the food is great! He now has a urinary problem so they took him to the urologist, will be whatever testing that can be done at the Cottages, and then bring him back to the Cottages. He says he is happy, and he thinks it is his home, so he must like it.
