Cottage Style Living in Owatonna, MN at Birchwood Cottage!


Birchwood Cottages leads the way in creating smaller settings specializing in care for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or other related dementias.

Our cottages are designed with the special needs of our residents in mind. The environment, programs and services allow residents to age in a familiar setting. The result is innovative households with spacious, social kitchens, beautiful sunrooms and living rooms.  All are conducive to relaxing visits from family and friends in true home-like surroundings. We also offer our residents the ability to safely enjoy a connection to the outdoors with our enclosed gardens and walking paths.

Birchwood Cottages believes that those experiencing memory loss benefit from living in a true home-like environment with traditional floor plans and furnishings.

This familiar environment helps our resident’s feel comfortable; unlike Birchwood Cottages Owatonna Minnesota Memory Careconventional assisted living facilities or nursing homes where long hallways, identical doors and similar rooms feel confusing, overwhelming and threatening to those with dementia.

We believe that offering free meals to our visitors and staff encourages a family-like atmosphere and gives our residents an opportunity to have a connection with others in the community. What better way to get to know one another than by sharing a meal together!
