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!"

Teepah Snow’s Positive Approach to Care (PAC) training was completed by 17 of our RPH staff, certifying them to now become trainers and/or mentors within all three of the RPH communities.  They learned the PAC philosophy, providing dementia related awareness, knowledge and skills allowing staff to create a more positive and caring environment for our residents who are living with memory loss.  This training was funded by the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation.
