Rate Information

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. We’re here to help you and understand this can be a difficult time for your family and your budget. That is why you will never pay a community fee, an application fee, a buy-in fee, or a move-in deposit at The Cottage.

At Columbia Cottage in Hartselle, the cost of care starts at $2,730. 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.

The Cottage also offers these additional monthly services:

Second Occupant $1,092
Cable Television $50
Phone starting at $22
Internet starting at $10
