  • A Wonderful Facade

    Cottonwood Court gets a half star because that is the lowest possible option. I will give no identifying information as no one in particular needs to be called out. I have a family member who was formerly at Cottonwood Court in both of their buildings. The actual floor staff there is friendly and seem to be very hardworking but as you go up the chain of command there are serious deficiencies. Most of the "directors" have worked there for a lengthy period of time and are proud to share that with everyone. I believe in a strong leadership environment but friendships seem to blind the company leadership. The employee turnover rate seems very high (which is common in the healthcare industry). It seems as though the staff changes from month to month. The appearance of the buildings is seemingly nice until you look closely. The dining rooms are dirty, the carpets throughout are stained or soiled, apartment cleanliness leaves something to be desired and I have even witnessed team members closing doors of resident's apartments when a tour or walkthrough by upper management is taking place. Paint is chipping, wallpaper is coming unglued from the walls, there are holes or gashes in walls, and the whole place could use a dusting. Don't let the activities calendars fool you either. Looking at their calendar and newsletter you would think the programming is thorough and engaging but spend some time in the activities with your loved one throughout the day and you will see that they are not all they are cracked up to be. The food is second class at best. They promote an "extensive" menu but again, look closely and you will see a lot of repeat dishes and a lack of any real nutrition. Compare their 6-week menu cycle and it is more similar than they lead you to believe. If the above isn't bad enough, that was just describing their assisted living building. Their memory care is even below these standards. If you happen to be looking for memory care, ask to see multiple hallways in the building and you will notice that they promote the best looking hall at the time but most of them are not great. The entry to the building (Town Square I believe) is loud, the activities are chaotic and most everyone is asleep. The second class food prepared in the assisted living is even worse when it arrives in memory care. Dining rooms are messy, residents have food on their clothes, half are asleep and it is just not a pleasant dining experience. Directors attempt to address concerns but you cannot hide a fake persona. I never heard a floor staff member speak poorly of their management but you can tell by their demeanor and interactions that most are not happy. When touring their community they might let you interact with residents or their families but they are very selective of who you interact with. There are a few positives however. Most of the staff members seem to have a very caring heart and the place is nicer than "slum" communities. I attended a few of the larger events and they were also nice. I really wanted to like Cottonwood but when it comes to the care of my loved one during their last years, months or days, this place just doesn't cut it. Definitely check it out for yourself but keep in mind the notes I have provided here.

  • Thankful for Cottonwood Court

    Our mom has been at Cottonwood Memory Care for 4 months now. She had lived in her home for about 68 years and so this was a very difficult move for her and for us. We were shown around the facility beforehand and were impressed with how clean it smelled and how clean it was visibly inside and out and the friendliness of the staff. They assured us, encouraged us, hugged us during the difficult stage of adjustment for mom. Sometimes it takes a couple of weeks, sometimes a couple of months and sometimes longer for them to adjust. The staff....they don't give up and they didn't give up on our mom. We love those caregivers that tend to her needs each and every day and we pray God's blessings on each and every one.
