AVONLEA Cottage, Dixon IL – a Memory Care Home
Offering IN-PERSON visits for your LOVED ONE!
WE ARE MEETING PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES on the front porch to answer questions and hand out Admittance Packets. Our newest focus is that we are “Smaller and Safer”, and we are Preparing and Praying to receive MOVE-INs soon!
LET’s TALK ABOUT THE FOOD! Mealtime is still one of the MOST important times of our day! Staff and Residents enjoy engaging conversation, community news, weather chats, and of course, MORE talk about food! Kim, our Dietary Manager says, “I like to focus on creating menus that bring back good memories. It would be great to cook and serve a few of your loved ones’ favorite dishes. I like to serve meat and potatoes sometimes, but they really like pastas, fresh fruits and veggies, salads, and desserts! I love to plan meals that meet the daily requirements. “ Special attention is given to consider allergies, food dis-likes, sugar and salt content, and pureed and ground foods when necessary.
Send us your favorite family recipes, and we’ll try them!
