a nice place

The community is a nice place, very neat and clean, and the staff is very friendly. The food is great and they have activities for the residence to participate in. The value is very good and I would recommend this community to others.

The community is clean, neat and the staff is very friendly. Communication is good if I call they return my call in a timely manner. I would recommend this community to others. It was close to home and that was important

Nice location and nice facility. I was there right after lunch and barely saw anyone out and about, which was disappointing. I hoped to see people out of their rooms doing something. The focus of the tour was more open rooms than the actual services and activities that would be provided. Our main reason for moving mom is to increase her quality of life and get her doing more, and my tour did not give me that feeling moving her here would accomplish that.

Great Location !!

Upon arrival at this community for our tour the staff made sure to greet us in a timely manor with welcoming smiles. They gave us a detailed tour with lots of great information about the facility. This place was just very costly and way over priced in my opinion for a retired community.

Grandma is happy!

My grandma is doing wonderful, since moving into American House Cottage Senior Living. I am pleased with the care and communication that the staff offer. The community offers frequent activities for the residents to enjoy. My grandma enjoys the variety of food choices.

A short stay

My brother was the guest at American House. He stayed four days as a trial visit. He was not comfortable there and left after four days. He has lived alone all his 94 years, and just could not adjust to group living. The family did not have a concern about the facilities, we did however question the confusion about his name. His name is Henry and his ID listed his name as Harvey. When I question it at the administration office they also had it wrong. This kind of mix up has the potential to cause problems. He was also upset that when they did get it straight, he was called Mr. Henry which of course he is not If there was a Mr. Henry at AH this also could cause a med. error. He is living at home with the assistance of in home care.
