The Cottages is proud to announce that they have recently acquired a new campus called The Cottages at Columbia Village. This campus was formerly known as Regency at Columbia Village and has offered Assisted Living and Memory Care for several years. The Cottages is looking forward to having a campus on the East side of Boise and welcomes the former regency team, residents, and their loved ones to The Cottages family! 

Why The Cottages Is Expanding

The Cottages CEO, Mark Maxfield, has been asked several times why he is expanding after the senior living industry has experienced tough challenges from the recent pandemic? Many have even thought it was crazy to try and grow so closely after the pandemic in conjunction with a challenging workforce. His response was, “I am aware of the challenges and indeed it’s required me to be bold. However, the elderly are here and they need quality facilities to take care of them. There are still a lot of great caregivers that want a good place to work, and these are the reasons that we are doing this. We are continuing to grow because we love what we do and who we serve.” 

At The Cottages, our love for the residents and their team members is evident. A tremendous amount of time and effort is put forth to create and implement programs that will provide a quality, healthy environment for all that live or work there. Some of these programs include: 

  • Never Too Old To Dream
  • Individualized activities
  • Everyday Hero 
  • Give Back
  • Volunteer of the Year
  • Robust onboarding program
  • Monthly employee incentives and drawings

At a time that many are trying to slow down or even pull back, The Cottages is boldly growing and moving forward. “We see a need and are fulfilling that need.” 

The Cottages at Columbia Village

The Cottages at Columbia Village is on the East side of Boise at 3521 E Lake Forest Dr. This campus consists of four homes which specialize in Memory Care and Assisted Living. Our Columbia Village team takes great pride in providing a safe, loving, and comfortable environment for those who need a little extra help and are looking for a superior Assisted Living or Memory Care home. Our mission includes serving those who have been diagnosed with memory loss, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other cognitive diseases. 

The Cottages at Columbia Village is a beautiful campus with a gorgeous courtyard full of shrubbery, walkways, flowers, and peaceful surroundings. There is a view of the mountains, shopping, local restaurants, and entertainment nearby. The homes have spacious private suites and offer all of the full services and activities that The Cottages are accustomed to. The open kitchen into the dining room creates a home-like feel that makes all feel welcome and at ease.    

Consider The Cottages Senior Living

The Cottages Senior Living will provide the best environment for your loved one. The small, home-like atmosphere and high staff-to-resident ratio help ensure that the residents are well cared for and their needs are addressed. The Cottages Assisted Living and Memory Care homes only have a maximum of 16 residents per home, which enables the staff to give more personalized care and the residents to get to know one another. 

The Cottages activities are tailored to the residents’ wants and desires, creating life-enriching moments. The activities are overseen by the quality of life coordinators, who are dedicated to enhancing each resident’s quality of life. There is a wide range of activities consisting of community activities and events, outdoor walks, BBQs, games, and more. 

The Cottages offers home-cooked meals that follow dietary guidelines and are delicious and nutritious. The open kitchen into the dining room gives the environment a homelike feel and delicious aromas fill the air. 

The administrator has an open-door policy and is never too busy to meet with family or answer questions. It is important that residents and their loved ones always feel heard and have their questions or concerns resolved. 

The home and atmosphere feel calm and happy and looks like a home. No one wants to reside in a place that feels or looks institutional. That is why there is a lot of thought and reflection involved with The Cottages layout, appearance and feel. The Cottages homes are secure but never feel like an institution or hotel. 

The Cottages Assisted Living and Memory Care have received numerous national and state quality awards for their well-run homes, exuding superior care. Several of the locations have received the National Center for Assisted Living Bronze Quality Award. Many of the locations have also received Silver and Gold state surveys.
