A very good experience

We have been at Cottage Grove Place for just over a year and have enjoyed our Independent living appartment and the great dining services offered. They have all the services that a person may need as we continue to change as we get even older. We would encourage everyone to think about coming to a place like Cottage Grove Place while you still have good years left and can enjoy all the benefits of Independent living. What brings a great deal of peace is knowing that no matter what we may need in the future for care we have it here. This is a great location with great dining and a lot of activites. Cottage Grove Place is the only place in the area we are aware of that has LIFECARE and that alone was a big reason for us being here. This is a great place with a great staff and we highly recommend it.... Read more

My loved one is currently a resident at Cottage Grove Place and everything has been good, so far. The staff is all very friendly and sweet. The hair dresser couldn't be better. On shower days, they shouldn't be able to opt out of washing their hair. The move in process was wonderful. I love that my loved one is closer to me! I would recommend Cottage Grove Place to family and friends.

Happy with our choice

All staff of the staff is friendly, not just the marketing people. Multiple levels of care make it easy to move from one to another as needed. A surprising number of staff have worked there for many years which speaks well of the management. And I think the cost is very reasonable and represents good value.

Our Experience

It seems like all of the staff is very friendly and helpful. The food I‘ve had was good. They offer plenty of activities, and they have a broad range of services, from independent living to skilled care, right there at one location. They had the best cost profile of the places that we looked into.

Cottage Grove Place Independent Living

My husband and I moved to Cottage Grove Place 6 months ago and it was the best decision we've ever mad. We have been asked many times by family and friends " so how is CGP?" and we reply without hesitation "we love it!". We are so relieved to to be free of the responsibilities of a large, older home and yard. We are very comfortable in our new home with all the amenities living at CGP provides, including the wide variety of activities and good food. The residents and the staff have been very welcoming as well. But the most important feature for us is the security and peace of mind know there are caring professionals a phone call away should we need help.

My wife and I came here to retire, not to vegitate. A prime consideration was location and transportation. A number of centers have transport but you are in town, on bus routes as well. Your offered transport is great and I use it regularly but I can get downtownor the mall by city bus as well. I live in a community with interesting people, with access to a substantial range of things to do.

Cottage Grove Place Independent Living

[name removed] and I moved into independent living at CGP in 2017. Our day to day living really didn't change very much except we now longer have to worry about maintaining a house or the lawn/garden, snow shoveling, ect. They have a full roster of activities to keep us occupied if we desire, wether it be group field trips to local points of interest, or card game playing in the facility, or assembling jigsaw puzzles individually or in small groups or story-telling gatherings., My favorite pastime is working in the extremely well-equipped woodshop making all sorts of crafts from scroll sawn plaques to wooden bowls turned on the lathe to whatever your imagination can conjure up. .Very friendly environment - in many cases, new residents come in as strangers but soon become3 friends with one or two acquaintances and them more and more. Cottage Grove Place is definitely a Community of seniors.
