Cottages on the Pond offer Seniors Cost-Effective Downsizing Option
June 16, 2014
Downsizing, or moving into a smaller space is a difficult decision to make for many reasons, including the loss of independence. The challenge of maintaining one’s own home is often the first thing that causes many seniors to consider other housing alternatives. Concerns about future needs for increased assistance with daily tasks can complicate matters further.
The Tanglewood Group’s ‘Cottages on the Pond’ offer worry-free living. Utilities, phone and cable, as well as all maintenance - such as lawn care, snow removal, and trash pick-up are included in the base rental price. Cottage residents can choose from a variety of extra services such as transportation, housekeeping, laundry, meal delivery and medication management for an additional fee as they become necessary. This continuum of care allows for gradual aging-in-place.
In addition to health and maintenance assistance, Tanglewood also offers many social activities to residents of the cottages including picnics and cookouts, fishing tournaments, dances and musical entertainment. Access to the Louis Ferreri Memorial Park and the Wellness Center are also included in the monthly fees.
The neighborhood feel and the personal attention that cottage residents receive from the staff help families to feel secure in the knowledge that their loved ones are safe and looked after even though they are living in their own home. As one cottage resident’s daughter writes; “It has given the family a great sense of peace to know that people are looking in on my mother daily since we can’t always be there.”
The Cottages on the Pond are the perfect blend of healthcare and independence. The monthly pay one price option is easily the lowest cost alternative in Chautauqua County for couples that are exploring new housing options.
