At the Cottage, you’ll find a cozy, Southern community that offers both physical support and a welcoming and active environment for your loved one. With regular opportunities to challenge the mind and nurture the heart, our mission is to offer our residents the ability to achieve their desired quality of life.
Country Cottage in Montgomery also offers Memory Care. Specially trained, nurse-supervised staff, customized service plan, nurse administered medications, and our unique recreation program are just a few of the features that are possible care alternatives for your family.
With different sizes and styles of apartments, the Montgomery Cottage is a unique assisted living community that offers the attention, care, and home-like environment your loved one deserves. Our private apartments come equipped with a private bathroom, emergency alert system, and spacious closet. Each apartment is also cable TV and telephone ready.
Although research supports the idea that people suffering from Alzheimer’s or other dementia benefit from being around other people, research also strongly shows that too much of a good thing, especially other people with needs, is upsetting and frightening for folks with dementia. With the guarantee that only 15 other people will ever be neighbors, Holly residents enjoy just the right amount of companionship to meet each of their needs to stay involved and connected.

The Cottage designed its community around the premise of cozy common areas for friends to gather and a family-style dining room to enjoy during meal times. With a spacious living room, quiet library, sunny porch, and a warm Country Kitchen, our residents always have a place to read, meet with friends, and enjoy a cup of coffee.
Advice from such noted consumer and research organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s Foundation, and Caregivers Foundation strongly recommend the “keep it simple” approach to dementia care. Because all paths at the Cottage lead directly to our cozy living room and the safe courtyard next to it, residents learn their way quickly with our help. The confidence that comes from this knowledge is priceless!
Central to the Cottage's mission is CareSteps, the customized personal care program that provides just the right kind of help at the right time. Along with this individualized care program, Montgomery Cottage services include:

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 Montgomery, the cost of care starts at $2,415 for assisted living and $4,054 for memory care. 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.
