Assisted Living & Memory Care for Seniors near Muskego, WI
From planting packaged seeds to cleaning seeds from a freshly picked pepper, residents at Elder Care Cottages can be a part of the meal preparing process.
For as much of ours meals as is possible, we encourage our residents to take part in helping to prepare their meals and stay independent. With seniors, as with children or anyone else, the best way to be healthy about what's going into our bodies is to follow it from start to finish.
We prepare our meals in an open-concept kitchen with direct sight-lines to the dining and community rooms, which allows us to keep an eye on residents in case any emergency should occur while preparing meals.
Reminisce Room Keeps Residents Comfortable
When the memory starts to go, people are often left with their long-term memories in tact the longest. The goal with our Reminisce Room is to stimulate those memories and try to bring them back to the surface, giving residents a more complete picture of who they are and who they've always been.
New memories, short-term memories, are harder to make for seniors. Elder Care Cottages encourages family of our Memory Care residents to bring in items with sentimental value to keep their loved ones comforted.
