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.

Janine Spadaccini

Columbia Cottage Collegeville Resident Services Director

Janine began her time at the Cottage as the part-time 2nd shift nurse in 2019 and quickly moved up to the role of Resident Service Director based on her extensive experience in long-term care and former supervisor roles. She attended Beaver College for Business Administration and after 3 years in the workforce decided to return to school to pursue a medical career. Moving her way up she started as a home health aide, completed her CNA, then went on to graduate from LPN school. Although her career path has led her through many nursing roles with various duties, Janine feels her nursing and personal skill sets are best suited for the long-term care environment. Janine has excellent rapport with residents and families and strives to create a positive atmosphere at the Cottage with her upbeat attitude.
