Your Dedicated Team Of Professionals

Friendly, Familiar Atmosphere

We are dedicated to creating a family atmosphere while delivering high standards of quality in person-centered care. We encourage everyone at Columbia Cottage Collegeville to foster close relationships with those around them, and that starts with getting to know some of the friendly Cottage staff.

Columbia Cottage Team Members

When you walk the halls of our Columbia Cottage building, you can count on a friendly smile and greeting from people who know you by name. Because of our strong sense of teamwork and our comprehensive “Get to Know You” process, each Caregiver gets to know who you are, your preferences, and how we can best meet your care needs. We deliver the highest standards of care because each person is determined to bring his or her very best, each and every day.
