Devastating
“The Cottages, located in Boise, Idaho, prides itself on treating people right.” The Cottages took over Regency Columbia shortly after my mother became a resident in the assisted living facility. Yesterday, [date removed], my mother was informed that she had 30 days to find another facility as the current facility would be closing for renovations. Can you imagine how frightening and overwhelming this is for an 85 year old person diagnosed with the beginning of dementia! We’re working frantically to find an alternate facility and fear my mom’s overall health will decline during this horribly inconsiderate treatment.

Great place for value, and a nice location.
They went through a change in ownership recently, which was a little rough initially, especially with administrative things. But their staff is really friendly. They're busy, so sometimes it takes a bit to get back to you, but they normally do. Our person likes it there, both the occupants and the help she receives. They have really good meal selection. And the location is nice, not quite in the foothills but away from the business of the city.

I would recommend
We chose Regency Columbia Village because they were the only ones with availability when we were needing it. They have really friendly staff, the only challenge is the level of staffing but I know that this is an issue everywhere. Overall I would recommend them to others.

Great Community
Regency Columbia Village is the best Memory Care in and around Boise. My great uncle lives there and he so well taken care of. He is so happy and myself and family are so happy with all the staff. We have never had an issue with any staff member there. If we have a concern we know we can email, call or stop by and talk to [name removed] the Executive Director and she will make us feel better instantly. The professionalism starts with [name removed] and goes all the way down to all the other staff. They have fun with all the residents and we love how well he is taken care of.

My mother lives in Memory Care and I have never had any issues with the staff at Regency Columbia Village. She moved there from another community in Boise that might of had great reviews but their care didn't match their reviews. Now at Columbia Village that is a different story. My mom is always taken care of and she's not an easy resident to take care of. She is always clean, fed, entertained and happy. I recommend Columbia Village to anyone needing to place their loved ones in Memory Care.

Frequently Asked Questions
about The Cottages of Columbia Village

The Cottages of Columbia Village offers Studio and Semi-Private. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored The Cottages of Columbia Village 5.5 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
