What is ~CareSteps~?
When becoming a Cottage Resident, and at least quarterly, our experienced staff will meet with you to discuss you and your family’s current preferences and challenges. The result of this discussion is a ~CareSteps~ Service Plan which Cottage staff implements throughout the next quarter.
The cost of ~CareSteps~ at the Cottage is based on the amount of hands-on personal assistance with the our ADL’s and IADL’s. Contact us today to see how ~CareSteps~ can work for you.
*Due to state regulation, Residents entering Country or Columbia Cottage must be able to exit the Cottage with minimal staff guidance or assistance.
