Schedule a Visit

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.

Private Rooms & Fewer Residents

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.

Cozy Community & Simplest Buildings

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!
