Frisco, Texas, June 8, 2019 – Having to move a loved one into an assisted living facility can be emotionally and mentally draining. It is especially challenging when that loved one suffers from memory loss. At The Cottages, seniors live in a safe, familiar, and stimulating environment explicitly designed to mitigate challenges they may face with their memory loss.
The Cottages are implementing innovative techniques and programming to create a stimulating environment, perfect for seniors dealing with Alzheimer’’s or dementia. All of The Cottages’ communities offer scheduled activities designed by Alzheimer’s-trained staff. The staff brings outside experts into the communities to teach new skills and give demonstrations.

With multiple communities across Texas, The Cottages have convenient locations to alleviate any long drives for residents’ families. The organization encourages family visits and interactions within the community, operating with an open-door policy so family members can engage with their loved ones at any point.
The home-like feel at each of The Cottages residences has a foundation in research from the Mayo clinic with memory assisted visuals like color codes, so residents have an easier time identifying their townhome. With beautifully built common areas and a large backyard, residents are able to avoid isolation and enjoy as much socialization as they like.
The Cottages staff goes through extensive training in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Lewy Body dementia, so they are prepared to monitor each resident for well-being, safety and medical needs as their disease progresses. With 24-hour staffing and connections to mobile labs and x-rays, residents and their families can feel secure in having them reside at any of the Cottages’ locations.
Alongside specially tailored medical care is a team of certified nutritionists who oversee all the meals and snacks provided in each community. With diet being so critical in the care of those suffering from memory loss, The Cottages ensure residents are offered tasty and nutritious meals and snacks that maintain a balanced diet within the dietary requirements for their individualized needs.
