Leading the Way In Memory Care

We provide a loving and joyful environment where Elders are cared for as family and can experience well-being while living life to its fullest. Through our mindful and compassionate approach, we inspire our residents to live a happy and dignified life. Our philosophy of quality care recognizes meaning, purpose and fulfillment for all.

The Memory Care Residences at Cottage Grove were specifically designed to care for persons living with memory loss. There are no long corridors, nurse's stations or medication carts at our four residencies. Elders thrive as they pursue useful roles within the household and find security and peace as they connect with other residents and staff and create family relationships.

"My mother is treated like family and the care provided is better than we could even attempt to provide. Being with other elders is good for her. "

"Immediately I knew Cottage Grove was the best possible place for my Mom... Most importantly, the staff was exceptionally patient and caring. As an RN, I'm very fussy about the care of my loved ones. I never had any misgivings about leaving my Mom in their hands. I knew she would be treated with kindness, respect and compassion. A true gift to me was the peace of mind that Mom was in the best possible place for the final years of her life... "

- Linda Snell, RN

"The Eden Concept for memory care is outstanding! Residents are treated with dignity and respect in a friendly, caring, safe and homelike atmosphere."

"I love knowing Mom is in such loving and capable hands."

"I can’t say enough wonderful things about RPH and Cottage Grove. From our first meeting five years ago…when we made arrangements to transfer Mom from a Buffalo nursing home.. to the day Mom passed…the staff was so helpful and loving. Mom was truly blessed (and therefore, her family) when we found the Rochester Presbyterian Home."

- Sincerely, Nancy

"I most appreciate the loving care each shabaz demonstrates toward every resident in their house and the abundance of God-given patience they show to all. My husband calls them “special angels” and I couldn’t agree more!"

Our sincere thanks goes out to everyone who has supported RPH throughout the nation’s Covid-19 pandemic.  RPH families, as always, have stepped up with thoughtful gifts of bagels, breads, fruit baskets and coffee to help us push through the most difficult of days.  Ipads were donated and purchased to allow for more FaceTime visits between residents and their families.  Special treats arrived in the form of cupcakes, cookies and chocolates to help keep us alert and content.  Area churches, volunteers and vendors donated face masks to keep our staff and Elders sage.  We cannot thank you enough!


What did we learn?  This is not the first crisis this Elders’ generation has faced.  Together we form a much larger family imparting love and laughter as we strive each day to share our joy!
