You are not Alone...Get help for your tough questions.

With 10,000 turning 65 every day, and 4,000 turning 85, the “silver tsunami” need for qualified and affordable housing grows exponentially over the next 20 years. Some projections show that 1 in 4 Seniors will experience some level of Dementia, and will need assistance. Avonlea Cottage staff continues training and studying for prevention, treatment, and management for all levels of need.

Hospice Support

If the resident’s condition warrants the additional services of Hospice Care, additional resources and staff will not increase the monthly rate. Some Hospice residents have remained at Avonlea for years, thanks in part to dedicated support staff who continue to provide services for quality of life.

Adult Day Care – hourly rates with all the benefits of full-time residents. Experience our “DAY OUT Program” for yourself with just a 24-hour notice, once approved.

Fill out the Application, submit provided physician-signed paperwork, and schedule your TOUR. Visit your first time with your loved one.

Your loved ones will be treated as one of the family, staying 2 hours to 8 hours, and can participate in activities and meals, and will be assigned their own room and bathroom while they are with us.

Three reasons we provide quality Day Care:

  • To allow the Family to see how their loved one will adjust away from home. See how the home-setting of AVONLEA Cottage makes the difference.
  • We Love Those Living with Alzheimer’s / Dementia, and will do what we can to help them find comfort and hope.
