Our days at Elder Care Cottages are filled with active, cognitive and reflective activities that make for a full and meaningful day – every day!
At Elder Care Cottages we provide a daily exercise program, walking, and group games like bowling, balloon tennis, washer toss, horseshoes and all kinds of seasonal fun. The residents are encouraged to stay active every day. We know keeping them active will help keep them healthy. Residents in our Assisted Living take ownership and implement weekly activities such as Bingo and Card Club.
Our bodies aren’t the only thing we keep active. We keep our minds active too with activities such as Cranium Crunches, Word Searches, Word Mining, Puzzles and Trivia.
Taking time to relax and reflect completes our days here at Elder Care Cottages. Reminiscing, sing-a-longs, read-a-louds and ‘Shaking Loose a Memory” are just some of the ways we unwind.
In addition to our full activity calendar, our residents appreciate the extra outside entertainment and celebrations we plan each month.
Our assisted living cottages are located in Waterford, Wisconsin. The beautiful outdoor area of the Cottages encourages the residents to enjoy Wisconsin’s spring and summer weather. Being surrounded by woods, our facility provides the perfect place to enjoy the changing seasons.
On a spring or summer day, you are bound to find residents and caregivers walking outside, or in the shade on the back patio. They can simply enjoy the fresh air or they can help to maintain our flower and vegetable gardens.
Beautiful landscaping, including a fountain pond and charming bird feeders, provide a quiet and reflective retreat for residents to enjoy the area’s native wildlife. We have visits from birds, turkeys, geese, and even deer.
Spiritual well-being is as important as a person’s physical well-being. As a Christian-based assisted living community, we believe everyone is entitled to live and work in an environment which fosters companionship, growth, and a sense of belonging. Local churches visit our cottages to lead worship services and provide our residents the opportunity to receive communion on a weekly basis.
Arts and Crafts
We encourage creativity! Our specially planned crafts are admired in so many ways. We display resident artwork in our art galleries, personalized creations are used to deorate their rooms and some masterpieces are even given by residents as gifts for their family members. We also have a talented art instructor who comes eight times a year to "Bring Out the Artist" in our residents. These are highly anticipated activities which are enjoyed by many. Our caregivers are encouraged to share their passion for crafting with the residents by planning special projects for them.
At Elder Care Cottages, it’s the process and not the outcome that matters most.
