“The perfect place to downsize out of the big empty house, create new friendships and not have a care in the world!!”
An independent living community is the perfect place for active seniors who are able to enjoy an active life and want the total freedom of a carefree retirement lifestyle. Home maintenance and yard work become a thing of the past, and the community provides a wide range of services and amenities—including dining, a full calendar of social opportunities and entertainment, transportation, housekeeping, health and wellness activities, security, and more.
When you move into your residence at a continuing care community, you’ll receive a variety of services such as dining, housekeeping, scheduled transportation, maintenance, and security. You’ll also have access to a whole array of incredible amenities and social, wellness, and educational activities. You’ll live independently and enjoy the lifestyle you create for yourself. But the unique benefit of a continuing care community is access to a continuum of care right on the same campus if and when it’s needed. For instance, as a continuing care community, Cottage Grove Place provides a full range of care, including assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, short-term rehab, and long-term care. Transition among these levels of care is simple and seamless, and you’ll always have the peace of mind knowing that you’ll be receiving care surrounded by friends and staff who know you.
Costs can vary depending on the community, the services offered, and the nature of the residency agreement. A LifeCare® community (such as Cottage Grove Place) typically offers a residency agreement with a one-time entrance fee along with a monthly payment that covers the services provided. The entrance fee and monthly fee will vary depending on the size of the residence and the number of occupants. The entrance fee (an initial, one-time expense) is held and used to provide for future care—such as assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, rehab, or long–term care—at prearranged rates with priority access, providing you assurance of the highest quality of care. When needs change, care is provided on site from people you already know and trust. In addition to an entrance fee, a monthly fee covers community maintenance, dining programs, and access to all the services and amenities of the community. Cottage Grove Place offers a variety of LifeCare residency agreements that provide options of refundable and non-refundable entrance fees. We also offer a monthly rental option with no entrance fee required. This kind of flexibility makes Cottage Grove Place the senior living community in Cedar Rapids that truly puts a premier retirement lifestyle within reach.
