KALEIDOSCOPE COTTAGE PHILOSOPHY
Kaleidoscope Cottage embraces the simple yet inspiring notion that purpose found in ordinary, day to day life is vital and essential to a person’s well-being and sense of self. Cottage guests with dementia are encouraged and supported to do the things they like to do based on their own unique and individual preferences. This is offered in a safe, supervised environment without any expectation that anything needs to be done “right”, “on time” or even done at all. There are never more than 5 “Cottagers” at any given time to ensure the best ratio for optimal well-being, and interaction.
Caregivers can be rest assured that their loved one is in a supportive, inclusive atmosphere, free to engage fully in spontaneous living while contributing in ways that reinforce his/her identity.
“Cottagers” are welcome to stay from 1 to 12 hours…anytime day or night because we know there is no “time clock” for dementia.
At Kaleidoscope Cottage, we live the adage, “Life is in the living”.
We look forward to sharing some of this life with you.
