Assisted Living Advantages
Life-Affirming, Homelike Environment
Benefit from exceptional round-the-clock care from Caregivers dedicated to providing a life-affirming and homelike environment for your benefit. With Columbia Cottage Assisted Living, you’ll be a part of a culture that embraces resident self-determination, personal choice, and a sense of community reminiscent of home.
Understanding Assisted Living
Assisted living is an ideal solution for seniors who recognize the value of preserving their independence and dignity, but understand the benefit of coordinating extra support for various activities of daily living throughout the day or night. Our assisted living community allows you to age in place, adjusting your personalized care plan to match your evolving physical and social needs. All of our activities and staffing are aligned to meet your needs, while preserving your right to respect, dignity, and personal privacy.
Assisted Living Benefits
“It’s about not putting someone in a regimented routine. It’s going by their wants and their needs. And keeping them as independent as possible, but being there to support them and assist them with the things they can’t do on their own any longer.”
– Columbia Cottage staff member
With Assisted Living, There's Stability And Choice
One of the primary differences between Columbia Cottage and other senior living options is our emphasis on preserving your dignity and honoring your daily preferences. We also are unique in offering seven levels of care, which allows you to stay in your residence even if your needs change. In contrast, Personal Care facilities can offer supervision over basic care and support needs. However, if you start to require a more complex level of care or if activities of daily living become a struggle, you will need to transfer to a community like Columbia Cottage that is licensed to provide a larger scope of service. On the other end of the spectrum, Skilled Nursing facilities provide critical post-acute care for residents who require extensive health care assistance. Private rooms and personal choice are not a priority there.
Columbia Cottage can provide an array of services supporting a wide range of levels. This means you are able to stay in our warm, homelike setting without needing to relocate when your care needs to change. You are able to stay in your private room, receiving personalized care and support from the familiar and friendly faces you see each day. We do everything in our power to ensure everything – from the meals you enjoy to the staff you interact with and the activities we schedule – provide you with a warm sense of belonging and comfort. In this way, you are free to make the most of each days among friends at Columbia Cottage.
