Services & Programs

We take pride in the fact that our program at Avonlea Cottage of Dixon is designed to ensure the best quality of life for our community members. We believe that a structured environment allows us to provide support and comfort to those in our care. Our priority is to make sure our members and their families realize that life after diagnosis can still be full and enjoyable. The Avonlea community provides round-the-clock monitoring and care in a safe environment. The family at Avonlea provides a stimulating environment for all of our community members.

The Avonlea Cottage services have been designed to help our community members to maintain a sense of dignity that may be lost in a traditional nursing home or hospital. When our loved-ones grow older, it may become more difficult for them to complete tasks they previously performed with ease. This is normal and does not mean they will have a lower quality of life. We want our members to be social, physically active, self-reliant, and to be themselves within Avonlea.

Our memory care community is an excellent choice for individuals that may require a helping hand with their personal care and other needs. Our staff works with the community members and their families to individually tailor the level of personal assistance provided so that the member is well cared for and allowed some degrees of freedom. The level of assistance can be adjusted at any time as the needs of the individual change.
