my tour of Country Cottage

We toured this community and the tour was very good. They answered all of our questions and were very informative. They were very accommodating and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We did not feel rushed at all and they took their time with our family. I would recommend touring this community

They were very good to us

The community itself was very clean, and the care services were excellent. The activities were limited at the time our loved one was there due to covid but they did have music which was nice, we also thought the value was excellent.

My Mom

High staff turnover. Activities often in another building. Mom complains food is bland. Long term homemakers are very good and extremely caring. I can’t say enough good things about people who devote their lives to caring for the elderly. I am able to sleep at night knowing my Mom is safe and her meds are managed.

Mom seems to be happy here

The staff are nice. Mom seems to be happy with the food. They keep the community clean. We like the setup of the community. It is small buildings with six to eight residents and they share a dining room. I would recommend this community.

Good impression.

I toured this community when we were looking for a place for my father. The staff was friendly and the community was clean. We ultimately decided to move elsewhere but they left a good impression.

So Glad to Have Found Country Cottage

I was very impressed with the kind, caring personnel at Country Cottage. Each staff member took time to listen to my questions and provide good information. I also noticed that they spoke to any resident they saw, calling them by name and asking about them personally. The facility was extremely clean and nicely decorated - very comfortable. I feel good about moving my Mom to Country Cottage and know she will enjoy her new friends and home very much.

Admission was fabulous

We talked to a couple of different communities and the admission person for Country Cottage was just fabulous. They really went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and make sure it was the right fit. They even made an extra trip to just make it that much better. The food looks excellent and the rooms are very nice. The rooms are kind of setup like a hotel room. We are very pleased with Country Cottage and would recommend them to anyone.

The residents seem starved for interaction and attention.

My wife visits 3 or 4 times a week for lunch and dinners, the food is horrible. Sometimes you can't recognize what it is. The support staff doesn't seem to like their jobs, with the exception of one or two employees. On one visit I saw 5 employees in a lounge watching a video, one person was sleeping. When I asked about the soap opera they were watching I was informed by a friendly staff member that it was a training video. When they emerged from the lounge area they had their arms crossed across their chests. If their frowns had gotten any worse they would have been stepping on their bottom lips. This industry has high turnover and you can tell when someone does not like their job. If your employees aren't happy it will trickle down to the people who are paying to live there. The residents seem starved for interaction and attention. There are two scheduled trips a week, Tuesdays for shopping and Fridays for a meal. The van that transport the residents has been either in need of repair or the driver was sick and so 3 trips have been cancelled. Maybe I'm too picky but there is a lack of happiness because the majority of the staff is unhappy to be there, there is very little interaction between the staff and their residents. There is no hobby or craft room for residents. We've also have had some trouble understanding extra charges that we hope to work out with the Country Cottage. It can be hard to get ahold of someone in the office. We've had to request the staff retrieve our loved one for outings, and hope that becomes policy. The residents need to be reached out to and reminded about activities and outings. When you walk in, I hate to use this word but it's "dead." No one is ever outside walking around, there are grounds but from what I've seen it seems the staff prefers residents to stay in their rooms. It takes a trained individual to be able to assess the residents' needs and if new hires can sleep through training videos without repercussions it just doesn't even look right. If something we requested was not taken care of it seems the blame is passed rather than the issue being resolved.
