Individualized Levels of Care for Each Resident
Apart from the close attention to every detail that is reflected in the design and quality of the building itself, the defining aspect of Columbia Cottage to its residents and their families is in its intense focus on individualized care. With a unique seven levels of care, Cottage professionals thoroughly and continually assess each resident to determine her/his individual strengths, level of independence, and needs. With levels of daily care that range from independent seniors to those needing higher levels of care, Columbia Cottage can develop and provide level of care packages that truly meet the current and changing needs of each of its residents.
The vast majority of residents that move into Columbia Cottage remain here without having to later move to a nursing home. For its residents, the Cottage is and remains their home.
We understand how seniors and their families must confront the worries and the challenges of aging and the potential added dilemma and uncertainty of leaving their home. We strive every day to allay those worries and to enable our residents to live as independently as they can with the care and support they may need as individuals in a setting in which they can live, relax and enjoy their lives.
