Crystal Cottage is an assisted living facility located in Lakewood, Washington. Lakewood is a major suburb of Tacoma, Washington. Crystal Cottage is classified as a micro-community type adult care facility. It has a capacity of six clients, providing home type environment, unlike large institutional facilities. This is a medicaid facility, located about three miles from highly regarded St. Clare hospital, part of the Franciscan Health System. It is well established and has an A+ BBB rating. As an assisted living facility, Crystal Cottage provides a secure setting with care for senior citizens who are prone to wander and need help with such issues as going to the toilet and keeping track of medication. The staff is trained to care for Alzheimer's patients and the facility is designed to meet the special needs of these patients. There is awake staff 24 hours a day and smoking patients can be safely accommodated. Special dietary needs are readily met, including diabetic, vegetarian, and low sodium. Assisted living facilities are designed to meet the needs of the elderly who are no longer able to live independently but do not need to be in a nursing home. They are generally less expensive than a nursing home and still feel more like a home. Elderly people who are able to live in this type of facility sometimes feel like they are in jail when placed in a large nursing facility. Crystal Cottage avoids that with its home type setting.
