We picked this board and care home for my mother after searching for and looking at many places. What an absolute gift they were for my mother and my entire family! I am forever indebted to the caregivers there for the loving way they cared for my mother and all of the residents there.

Provider Response

Thank you so much!!

Although it’s called Cottage #2, it should really be called Cottage NUMBER ONE! No matter what day or what time I drop in to visit with my mom, I ALWAYS get a wonderful feeling from the compassionate and incomparable care she receives. I love the warm decor and peaceful setting. It’s very reassuring and comforting to know that my dear sweet mom is happy, calm and even eating better than I do!! I gave a 5-star rating because Irvine Cottages is like a 5-star resort.

Provider Response

Thank YOU so much for the wonderful 5 star rating! Your mom is a five star resident! Just like you! Thanks again! Marie and Geri our managers are going to be thrilled with your kind rating!

My mom was in Irvine cottages for about 9 days. She was comfortable but somebody should have walked her though. The facility was nice and clean, and the people was nice and helpful. Everything was good. They could not make a lot of vegetarian food although I’ve given them a lot of choices and recipes. They could do a little bit better on vegetarian meals.

Provider Response

We are so happy you liked the care during your loved ones respite stay! We will definitely incorporate more vegtables into the menu! We have already told our dietician consultant! Thank YOU so much for the feedback! It only helps us improve!

About Irvine Cottages 2

Welcome to Irvine Cottages

Compassionate Assisted Living in a Cottage Setting & Exceptional Care

About us

Irvine Cottages is dedicated to providing compassionate and loving care to all of our residents. We offer memory care well above expected standards to provide families with peace of mind and to give our residents the highest quality of life.

We Specialize In:

  • Dementia, Alzheimer's Disease and Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
  • Parkinson's Disease, Lewy Body Dementia
  • Diabetes/Nephrology
  • Hospice Care, including continuous care and a dedicated hospice program with one on-site hospice team

What Sets Irvine Cottages Apart?

There are many choices for a family to consider when looking for assisted living, and especially memory care. Irvine Cottages is a strong supporter of the idea, "Smaller is better." We believe that the intimacy we offer, along with the consistency of staffing in a small environment (no more than six residents maximum), makes Irvine Cottages feel like a familiar place for your loved ones -- just like the home they grew up in. A large or hotel-like facility may overwhelm a person with memory loss and lead to more confusion due to overstimulation. We find older adults with memory loss adapt quickly to the new, loving environment in our Cottages.

In everything we do one question is always on our minds, "How do we make life comfortable, safe and enjoyable for those whose care has been entrusted to us?" Safety, security, appropriate-level cognitive care and a comprehensive activities program all improve the day-to-day lives of our residents. We are the only facility in the State of California to have a comprehensive camera monitoring program in all bedrooms of the facility. Your loved one's safety and your peace of mind are our main concerns.

Currently we have two nurses on staff who visit residents daily. We also have medication technicians, social service directors, maintenance staff, and other professionals who give the best care possible. We have the lowest caregiver staff turnover reported in the area. On average the House Managers have been employed for five years or more. Our caregivers provide compassionate and intelligent care for all.

Boredom in a small board and care can be an issue, but not at the Cottages. We provide: Music Therapy two to three days a week, Art Therapy once a week, daily Karaoke, game time, outings, gardening, massage therapy, and even aromatherapy. Group or individual exercise activities occur at 10:00 am every day, so all of our residents know what to expect.

An older adult with memory loss has a lot to deal with during their transition to a new home, such as experiencing a new environment, meeting new people, or finding the bathroom. Therefore, for the first three days, we offer a "friend," a caregiver assigned to give extra help at night or during the day to ease their settling comfortably into a new environment. The new "friend" will answer questions, provide reassurance, and give additional cues to their new surroundings.

We do our best to group our care for older adults into three levels, from mild memory loss, to moderate, and for those who need a lot of extra care. Every Cottage has programs tailored to meet each population's specific needs and concerns. For example, some Cottages have extra night care, while some have more music therapy. In order to truly know what level of care or which Cottage will be a good fit for your loved one, a tour with one of our Family Service Directors will assist you in making the right choice!

By providing excellent memory care, we decrease your levels of stress and time spent worrying. You will be able to relax because you know your loved ones are in highly-skilled and compassionate hands. You will be able to enjoy quality visits with your family members, rather than doing the myriad of caregiving tasks on your "To Do" list. That's what we're here for - to make your life easier and your caregiving journey smoother from now on!

In October 2015, Dr. Jacqueline Dupont, Gerontologist and Founder of Irvine Cottages, was honored to receive the 2015 Senior Care Hero Humanitarian Award from SeniorServ, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of older adults.
