You can rest assured that as you age, you'll have complete access to services and amenities that accommodate your changing lifestyle, preferences and needs. You'll never need to move to another community if your lifestyle or health needs change. With access to on-site assisted living and skilled nursing care, you'll never have to worry about where you'll go for care or who will take care of you.
We are the only LifeCare retirement community in the Cedar Rapids area. LifeCare is the highest form of continuing care because full assisted living and nursing care are included in our comprehensive service package. At Cottage Grove Place, our mission is to help residents live happy and healthy lives. However, if you ever require nursing care, it's reassuring to know those services are available for the cost of just two extra meals per day. You'll appreciate our state-of-the-art, on-campus health center where compassionate professionals provide recuperative care, certified assisted living, skilled care, and long-term care services.
If you ever need this type of care, you'll have access to it with no concerns about cost or quality. Your caregivers will be part of your own community. In addition, if your spouse needs care, you won't need to commute or change your address to be near a loved one who is receiving care.
The best time to consider moving to a LifeCare retirement community is when you're able to make the decision for yourself and before a health problem affects your ability to qualify for residency. It's also the ideal time to take full advantage of all that our community offers. Many people say they wish they had moved to Cottage Grove Place sooner. If you wait too long, you might miss out on many of our great amenities and activities.
There are many other reasons to move from your home. You'll no longer have to maintain a big house and lawn, you can let go of worries about a future move, and you can relieve your family of having to make decisions on your behalf. Most of our residents say it's the best move they've ever made. At Cottage Grove Place, you'll discover newfound freedom, enhanced security, and expanded options for activities and engagement.
