I can't believe people are saying positive things about Cottonwood Estates. [removed] The food is terrible. They advertise a "Chef" on duty 24/7. It's a lie. A 10 year old could fix better meals. My Mother [removed], she was so intimidated by the staff demands that they be on time for meals so they could sit and wait for an hour for their cold, industrial meals. And, then the food was so terrible she wouldn't eat enough of it to keep a bird alive. Cottonwood makes all kinds of promises, but they follow through on nothing. Ask some of the residents about their "pea soup" with three peas in a broth. That's the level of the food that is served. I feel so sorry for the sweet people who are living there. We got Mom out. She has had some of her Cottonwood friends over for meals, and they are obviously VERY hungry.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
Cottonwood was a nice facility and good location, but only offered independent living. I think if we are going to move my MIL that we should go to a facility that can handle longer term care if needed.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
The apperance of the facility is nice and the apartments are nice. Here are the main issues/complaints about this facility: 1 - Food - is HORRIBLE. At $500 a month it should be so much more. The menu comes down from Corporate-very few vegtables and TONS of carbs - potatoes/rice/pasta. That is because they go further and it is cheaper. So much food is wasted because it is not eaten or sent back. They also run out of their main entrees. 2 - It is supposed to be a Independent Living Facility; however they continue to take individuals that have Alzheimer's, Dementia and other health issues. On numerous occations my relative has had someone at her back door not knowing where they are, who they are, etc. This is on a main road and someone is going to end up hurt or worse. There are so many people who have not business living in an Independent Living facility. A old manager even acknowledged this and said they could get in trouble for accepting some of the people that are there. 3-Activities -They have gone through numerous Activity Managers - Each one holding activities for the grade level of kindergarden. The newest Manager is someone right out of College. What would she know about activities for seniors? 4-As new as they are and the capacity of individuals they have - they are saying they are out of money.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
