Services and Specialized Care in Owatonna
At Birchwood Cottages, we are committed to respecting the path of life and all that the aging process may bring. We offer increased social and health care services at a lower cost than traditional medical-model nursing homes. In addition, it is always our goal to provide care through end-of-life in order to avoid another move for our residents.
It is our belief that those with memory loss cope best when they are able to live in a home that specializes in their memory care needs. Their dementia often makes it difficult for them to integrate with conventional nursing home and assisted-living residents.
Birchwood Cottages focuses on these special needs. Our staff is trained to tailor social and recreational programs to each individual’s strengths and remaining skills. Our small size allows us to get to know each resident’s personal and work history, their interests and hobbies. It is this knowledge that allows us to provide the very best care to each resident.
Birchwood Cottages provides a full-array of personal care services as well as comprehensive social and recreational programs. Our professional staff creates a personal care plan for each resident that addresses his or her needs and desires. Whenever possible, our caregivers accommodate individual preferences and encourage resident-centered choices.
