The Memory Care Residences at Cottage Grove were specifically designed for persons living with memory loss and the first in our area to offer a residential living concept committed to make Elder’s lives meaningful and fulfilling.
We provide a loving and joyful environment where Elders are cared for as family and can experience well-being while living life to its fullest. We believe it is our obligation to accommodate the health and personal care needs of our Elders and equally important to nurture their human spirit. Through our mindful and compassionate approach, we inspire our residents to live a happy and dignified life.
If you are approaching the time when a higher level of care for your loved one is warranted, please call our Executive Director Nancy Smyth at 585.509.3987, e-mail her at [email protected]
or fill out the form below. Nancy will share her 35-years of care-giving experience to help you to make best decision for the loved one you cherish.
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 and nurture the human spirit.
Enhanced care is exactly that – an enhanced level of care within our Assisted Living Residence at Cottage Grove. Elders are able to “age in place” and avoid expensive medical care provided in a nursing home.
We firmly believe that it is our obligation to care for the health and personal care needs of our Elders but it is our mission to make their lives meaningful and fulfilling. We work tirelessly to nurture the human spirit and offer leisure activities tailored to the unique needs and preferences of each Eden family.
Cottage Grove is located in the charming town of North Chili, NY and is about 20 minutes from downtown Rochester. The area is known for its small college-town setting and attractive country side environment. Local shops and restaurants add to the areas appealing ambiance.
Someone you love is living with dementia, what now? Persons living with dementia experience changes in cognitive and functional abilities as the disease progresses. This varies from person to person depending on the type of dementia and the stage of the illness.

Proponents of Eden are dedicated to bringing meaning and fulfillment to the lives of Elders through enlivening environments and eliminating the plagues of Loneliness, Helplessness, and Boredom.
Immediately I knew Cottage Grove was the best possible place for my Mom... Most importantly, the staff was exceptionally patient and caring. As an RN, I'm very fussy about the care of my loved ones. I never had any misgivings about leaving my Mom in their hands. I knew she would be treated with kindness, respect and compassion. A true gift to me was the peace of mind that Mom was in the best possible place for the final years of her life.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about RPH and Cottage Grove. From our first meeting five years ago…when we made arrangements to transfer Mom from a Buffalo nursing home.. to the day Mom passed…the staff was so helpful and loving. Mom was truly blessed (and therefore, her family) when we found the Rochester Presbyterian Home.
Each employee plays a supportive role in our mission aspiring to give the best possible care and enabling a fulfilling way of life for our Elders. Our employees are committed to providing compassionate and loving care to all of our Elders. As always, the safety well-being of our Elders is our highest collective priority.
