My review of The Cottages of Fox Lake

We chose The Cottages of Fox Lake because they had a special unit for Alzheimers which is what we needed. The room sizes here are average compared to others we saw. There have been no complaints about the food, I would say it is above average. It is a very convenient because we are close and the grounds are very well kept. I would recommend to others.

A family like community

We chose The Cottages of Fox Lake because the living community was smaller and it felt more homey which appealed to my mother in law more than others that we saw. The room sizes here are very good. She likes the food here a lot, I have eaten at the facility once and it was good, there is a chef on site that prepares the meals. The best part about the community so far has been the family like vibe to it. The people here are also very friendly. I would recommend.

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

This is a marvelous place for people in need of individualized and personal care. There are only 6 residents per each staff member. All employees from top management through kitchen staff are focused entirely on meeting the needs and desires of the residents. They truly want their residents to be as happy as possible. The Cottages have small seperate buildings for different levels of care, which provides a more intimate atmosphere than many institutions.
