What’s so special about The Cottages Staff?

Our Team is dedicated to providing individual care for each of our Tenants at The Cottages. Learning the little things that make their day special, the certain routine they have every morning and every evening before bed makes The Cottages the best assisted living in the area.  Our Team is the one who builds our reputation through their dedication, thoughtfulness and love of caring for others.  Working for a company that respects their staff, provides the education needed to be the best, and encourages personal growth and excellence, is why working for The Cottages Assisted Living & Memory Care should be your #1 choice.

The Cottages Management Team strives to help build your strengths, and provide education and support for those skills that may be weaker.  We provide balance, and promote a relaxed working environment for those individuals that can work independently and respect others opinions. Staff is encouraged to teach, mentor and support each other, by each of us using our experience as a guide to improve the lives of all those living and working at The Cottages.

What the Staff says about working at The Cottages

"Working at The Cottages is different than any other place I’ve worked. Less drama, we work independently and we are trusted and respected for the care we provide.  I have opportunity to advance if I want to - but I’d rather have fun with my Residents than do the paperwork!"

"I like working here because I feel relaxed and able to spend the quality time needed to care for my Residents well.  There are still busy stressful days, but all in all it is the best job I’ve had!"

"The atmosphere at The Cottages is not as tense as the nursing home and I feel that my opinions are taken seriously and my experience is respected.  We don’t have wage freezes and our hours are never cut because of occupancy."

What our families say about The Cottages Staff and their excellent care!

Dear Staff at The Cottages,

It is very hard to put into words the depth of our gratitude for your love, care and service to our Mother. Mother knew she was blessed to be in your care and to be able to live in your beautiful facility. The personal attention that we witnessed as a family was only a small % of the care you gave to her . . . you gave so much more when we weren't around. You were always tuned into what was happening with her and when giving care to her you also allowed her to keep her dignity. It's the small things that count along with the huge things in this life. Truly amazing all of the small ways you bless a person's life there at The Cottages. As human beings we are fragile and will all face the late in life changes. I can only hope that each of us are as fortunate as our Mother was to be in such capable caring hands as each of you there at The Cottages. Our family continues to keep you all in our prayers. With the deepest felt gratitude.
