The founder and CEO of The Cottages Senior Living talks about their newest Alzheimer’s and memory care facility.
Frisco, TX, July 28, 2016 – The Cottages at Chapel Creek, an assisted living residence for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory disorders, is now open in Frisco, Texas. These luxury residences are unique in their design and based on creating a home-like environment and individualized level of care for its residents. The Cottages at Chapel Creek is a fully licensed, 90-bed assisted living facility, with Alzheimer’s Care Certification by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.
“We are the owner, operator and builder of The Cottages so that we can meet the distinct needs of those living with dementia in these residences,” says Trent D. Quinn, founder and CEO of The Cottages Senior Living. “We believe this attention to detail during the entire process and forward is essential to making the residents feel at home while also providing our professional staff with a proper environment in which to provide around-the-clock, individualized care.”
The unique floor plan at The Cottages was initially inspired by Mayo Clinic research and allows residents to live in a smaller, home-like environment. Individual townhomes or cottages, each with 12 – 16 residents, have their own family dining room, living areas and sunroom. Well-balanced meals are served family-style in each cottage.
“Grouping residents and caregivers in smaller settings means we are able to develop personal and deep relationships with our residents,” says Quinn. The Cottages concept has been honed by Quinn for years to ensure that residents enjoy an environment where they can continue to live their lives to the fullest while living with a memory-related disorder.
The luxurious resident apartments at The Cottages at Chapel Creek are large and each is equipped with a private bath and expansive windows. The community living spaces are well appointed with high-end furnishings, oil paintings and custom lighting. All of the décor has been hand-selected; this attention to detail can be seen throughout the residence. And, the expansive backyard gives its residents ample walking paths and the ability to spend time outdoors.
The Cottages features the state-of-the art Vigil® Memory Care System with smart motion technology that is customizable to each resident. Additionally, The Cottages offers access to nursing 7-days a week as well as an onsite chef preparing three meals daily plus snacks. Caregivers are trained to understand the nuances of memory disorders from Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, Lewy Body and more.
“Our family has been very pleased with the care that my husband is receiving at The Cottages,” says the wife of a resident. “The staff is very kind and caring and calls each resident by name. They seem to genuinely care about each person. The chef is fantastic and prepares healthy and tasty meals to the delight of the residents. The Cottages are so attractive and well decorated that they make everyone feel better just by being there.”
The Cottages Senior Living has been a leader in Texas since 1997 and now expands into the North Texas region. “It is simply our mission to provide families with a comfortable, caring answer to their loved one’s needs in an environment that is as close to home as possible,” says Quinn.
Alzheimer’s is a degenerative disease affecting the brain that results in memory loss, behavioral changes and reduction in language and speech skills. According to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, it is estimated that more than 5 million Americans suffer from the disease today. The incidence of Alzheimer’s disease is rising in line with the aging population, which means that it will more than double in the next 30 years as the next generation ages.
