Memory Care Home > Cottage Grove > Memory Care Memory Care It Can Be Different! Elders residing within our 4 assisted living homes at Cottage Grove are accepted and loved as “family.” We celebrate each Elder’s unique history and emphasize their gifts. Our mission is to assure that each Elder feels a sense of belonging and experiences love, growth and fulfillment. We care for persons living with memory loss at varying stages. While we accommodate needs associated with dementia, we focus on each individual’s strengths and develop wellness plans that address personal care needs but also nurture the human spirit. As an Eden Alternative community, we strive to offer our Elders a way of life that is engaging and meaningful. It is our goal to alleviate loneliness through genuine relationships, eliminate helplessness through useful roles and reduce boredom by encouraging variety and spontaneity within our homes. (For more information about the Eden Alternative-visit edenalt.com) Enhanced Memory Care We recognize that many forms of dementia are progressive. It is our goal to meet the needs of each Elder within our family when possible. Enhanced memory care is offered in Alice’s House at Cottage Grove for Elders needing more support and assistance. ** Our Memory Care residences are licensed by the Department of Health as Special Needs Assisted Living Residences (SNALR). Alice’s House has an additional license as an Enhanced Care Assisted Living Residence (EALR).
