No such thing as a good nursing home.........just some are better than others...........after almost 10 years visiting my husband......I have seen it all. Accreditations should be unannounced........too much time given to sprucing up and making things look almost perfect.......which is not a true everyday picture. Eggs!!! Anyone remember what one of these are????

Excellent cheerful and caring staff made all the difference. A lovely room with a kitchen and ample gardens for my father to walk and sit in all helped him to enjoy his time there.

My father was at Cottage Grove for over ten years and for most of the time he was relatively happy. Apart from suffering a major stroke leaving him confined to a wheelchair and depression, I would have to say 99% of the staff were wonderful and caring. I completely understand that nursing homes are well understaffed and staff are generally run off their feet which is sad to see, we have personally experienced this over ten years, sometimes leaving members of the family upset that a family member in the nursing home hasn't been attended to. I would love to see all nursing homes with enough staff to be able to attend to all patients within a timely manner therefore not leaving patients somewhat distressed which can be through no fault of the skeleton staff at the nursing home. Over ten years of visiting my father, my mother visiting on a daily basis - we were able to experience a lot of the general running etc. of a home, some not quite so good but a lot very good. We commend all the fantastic staff at Cottage Grove who shared a passion for caring for my father in a dignified manner.
