Our Staff "Cottage Heroes"
“If you love what you do, you’ll never work another day in your life.” – Mark Twain
It takes special people to care for those affected by memory loss. Special people with big hearts, patience, compassion and a true love for what they do. Everyone who works at Prairie Senior Cottages has that and so much more. That’s why we don’t refer to them as employees, we call them — Cottage Heroes.
At Prairie Senior Cottages, our Cottage Heroes are the guardians of our residents. Helping them maintain dignity, individuality and confidence at all times, while understanding and identifying their spoken and unspoken needs. We take our careers as Cottage Heroes very seriously, but believe in having fun at work and including our residents and their families in that fun.
What It Takes To Be A Cottage Hero
Before being offered a position at Prairie Senior Cottages, each applicant is thoroughly screened for empathy, honesty and dependability. The ideal Cottage Hero is a creative and adaptable problem solver with the ability to handle every situation with a cheerful disposition. In addition to this extensive screening process, all our Cottage Heroes receive initial and ongoing specialized training to help them be successful, which results in our residents being successful.
