About Us

It’s the little things that make living at The Cottage feel cozy, comfortable, and familiar. No detail is too small.  Cozy common areas encourage fellowship among residents, and most importantly: it is a group of people who find meaning in caring for our seniors every day.

It matters to us if Mom enjoys an ice cream every night or if Dad wants his bed made a certain way each morning. We understand each person’s care, needs, and preferences are different which is why we created our CareSteps program. This program allows us to provide the care needed along with the little things.

Home is more than just a place to live—it’s a feeling of warmth and comfort. New and old friends can enjoy being together along with different sizes and styles of apartments and service programs tailored to suit the individual needs of each resident. Whether your loved one needs a little assistance or requires more hands-on care, we can help.

You’ll find a community that offers both physical support and a welcoming and active environment for your loved one. With regular opportunities to challenge the mind and nurture the heart, our mission is to offer our residents the ability to achieve their desired quality of life.

Since 1982, the Cottage has specialized in caring for seniors who need assistance with their daily activities of living. Our dedicated caregiver staff provides attention and support to residents with their bathing, dressing, and walking (ambulation). 

With three home-style meals, housekeeping and laundry services, 24-hour care, and an on- and off-site recreation program. we strive to achieve the quality of life goals of our residents and families.

We are dedicated to providing friendly, quality service to all community team members, residents, and resident families.


The first thing you notice when you visit The Cottage is that it does not look like any other senior housing community.  That is because when our founders were deciding how they would serve families with older loved ones, they did not want to follow the standard model. They wanted to create an environment that feels like home.

Each apartment is just steps away from the dining room and all of the common areas. Residents become family in our communities.

Pricing Options that Fit Your Family

We strive to give families as many options as we can to promote independence and choice for all of our residents. We do this with our care, and we have also set out to do this with our pricing options.

As you explore your options for assisted living, you will find that most communities only offer one pricing option for their residents. At The Cottage, we offer 2 different pricing models so you and your family can select the option that best fits your needs.

  1. CareSteps – The first option we have is our Caresteps pricing model. This structure uses our care levels as the basis for your monthly care expense, and it will adjust as your loved ones care needs increase, or decrease. For example, if your loved one moves to the Cottage after a rehab stay and is still having some issues getting around, they might move to the Cottage as a Carestep level 3. But as they continue to gain strength, their level might come down to a level 1 or 2. Under the Carestep pricing option, the price your family pays for care would go down with that decrease in Carestep.

  2. All-Inclusive – With this pricing option, you pay one flat rate for all of your care and ancillary services. So if you and your family would prefer a more fixed monthly statement, this option could be ideal for you.
