The cost of care and service varies for each individual resident based on the size and location of the apartment they choose, as well as the kind of care and services needed.
At Country Cottage in Huntsville, the cost of care starts at $2,521. This rate is paired with a customized personal care plan called CareSteps. After an assessment by our Cottage staff, your loved one will receive a care plan that is specific to his or her individual needs. This plan is revisited every three months or with any significant change, so if your loved one moves in and becomes more independent, his or her cost for care would decrease. If he or she has a decline, the cost of care would increase with the additional staff attention your loved one would require.
Prices effective January 1, 2017.
