Cottage Style Living

Welcome to Prairie Senior Cottages

Since 1998 Prairie Senior Cottages has led the way in creating smaller settings specializing in caring for seniors with memory care and Alzheimer needs.

Our Cottages are designed specifically for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Our environment, programs, and services allow residents to age in a familiar setting. The result is innovative households that are conducive to family visits where residents can safely enjoy the outdoors.

True Home Surroundings

Prairie Senior Cottages believes that those experiencing memory loss benefit from living in a true home environment with traditional floor plans and furnishings. The familiar environment feels comfortable, unlike conventional assisted livings or nursing homes where long halls with identical doors and similar rooms feel confusing, overwhelming and threatening to those with the disease.

Communal Living

For safety and social reasons, all cottages are communal facilities. Although some assisted living facilities offer apartments with private bathrooms and kitchens, Prairie Senior cottages believes unsupervised access to these areas is unsafe for those with dementia. In addition, we believe sharing a kitchen, dining room, and living room with other residents and staff has important therapeutic benefits. Regular social interaction also prevents the isolation that so easily occurs.
