Good choice for Assisted Living

My loved one resided in Assisted Living here for over a year. We were very happy with the care she received. They have some really good Aides, they were wonderful. There are some very good caring people here. Communication with the family was good. The food was excellent. It was always clean. My loved one didn't participate in the activities, so I can't rate those. She was recently moved to the Skilled Nursing side and everything has been the complete opposite, terrible experience so far. We're looking at moving her to a different facility. Again, it's a good choice for Assisted Living. Our experience on that side was very positive. I would recommend the Assisted Living side to family and friends.... Read more

Cottingham is an awesome community

We chose Cottingham Retirement because we needed something that was not too far from where we lived so we could check on him more often and so this location was great. We also really liked the staff and the layout of the place. The facility was very clean and they had tons of activities provided. They have been great about their covid protocols and are really taking care of the residents. They have had a wave of covid cases recently and in response they have shut down activities, delivered meals to rooms, and have on site doctors visits to keep them as safe as possible. They really treat my brother with respect and I would highly recommend them.

Our tour experience

Our family had an in person tour and we just did not really get a overall warm welcoming feeling to it. We did not think that was going to be a good fit for our loved one.

My review of Cottingham Retirement

I was not impressed with the administrative staff here at all during our tour. It seemed like they just wanted to take people who wanted to sit and stare at the wall.

So Grateful!

Our Mom moved in to A.L. at Cottingham in July 2019. We are so grateful! Every staff person, we have encountered have been kind, friendly, helpful and leaves us with a sense that they actually care about us and Mom. Having her live here has given us such peace of mind! There are wonderful activities for her to be involved in, if she wants. Moms neighbors are very sweet and she has made many friends already. Meals are good! Servers in the dining room nice and attentive. And we actually enjoy eating there with her when we can, it's affordable for us! Maintenance folks have been very helpful! And have taken care of things in a very timely manner! Housekeeping have been super! The nurses and aides that check in with Mom have been kind! The front desk ladies are awesome! There will never be any place that will feel like 'home' to her - as she left the house she lived in for over 55 years. But this is very close :-) She even tells us "I think this move was a good choice!" Again it's such peace of mind for us to see her adjust and enjoy living life again! Thank you Cottingham! And thank you "A Place for Mom" who helped guide us during this difficult time! We are grateful!

Thank You Cottingham for Your Warm Welcome and Care

My 85 year Mom moved into Cottingham Retirement Community the beginning of 2018 and we are all SO happy about her decision to move to Cottingham's Independent Living. We wanted a facility that had all levels of care so my mom could become comfortable in a facility and not have to move when / if her needs change. All of the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The residents are happy and easy to talk with which made Mom feel welcome and comfortable. So much do to: bingo, painting, playing cards, wine and cheese socials. I can tell Mom's "well being" has already improved since she is now more active. The most important part is that Mom is happy and enjoys her new friends! Of course, I can't forget to mention that she loves the meals and her cleaning lady! Thank you Cottingham for caring about my Mother!

Needs Sprucing Up

I toured at Cottingham Retirement, and while I thought that the people there were nice, I felt that the community itself was old and dated. The décor was very 80s or 90s, and I felt it really could use some sprucing up.

I Am Happy With My Choice

My experience has great and I'm very happy being here. Everybody who has been around me has been good. The community is a good place for me, my daughter is pleased with the community and the whole family thinks it is a good place for "mom". The people are real friendly and I would recommend Cottingham Retirement Community to anyone.

Just like being on a cruise ship

My dad is doing extremely well since moving here. He loves it and we are more than pleased with the community. He is still trying to get into a daily routine but he is doing better. He has joined some actives and is enjoying them. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive and very accommodating. In fact, his case worker keeps in constant contact with me if she has any kind of concerns she feels I need to know about. The food we think is very good we have had a couple of meals there. The staff does not pressure you into doing anything it's almost the mind set of a cruise you can do as much as you want or as little as you want.

A little pricey!

This community is exceptionally nice . The feel though that I got when I was there was dark and cold. The dining hall is great and very nice. The only thing that was the problem was that the price was a little bit more than expected.

Good Community, My Tour Was Nice

I had a pretty good tour of this facility. This is a nice community with kind people. The community from what I saw looked nice and clean. Everything appeared well maintained. The staff was kind and friendly. They were also informative, and answered my questions. This community just wasn't the right match for my mother and her needs.
