The Gables of Cottleville Memory Care Home – a leader in a new era of care… where living continues!
The culture of long-term care is undergoing profound change. Leading voices in the care of those with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia are speaking out in support of care settings where the value and dignity of each person is respected – a place where their voices are heard and opinions considered. These person-directed care changes are resulting in self-determination and purposeful living for Alzheimer’s patients.
These changes reflect a shift toward optimal relationships at all levels in a home environment.
Our leadership knows firsthand the challenges of caring for aging parents and the illnesses that require in-home nursing care. In 2008, after experiencing these challenges, Tim and Janice Effinger purchased a private duty home care franchise to offer in-home elder care. Now, together with their cousin Kurt Smith of KAS Development, LLC, the couple is building The Gables of Cottleville – a unique home with a new idea – optimal relationships at all levels in a home environment.
The Gables of Cottleville Memory Care Home is open and has rooms available.
The Gables of Cottleville Memory Care Home is not long-term care… it is life care!
The Gables of Cottleville is barrier free; residents are encouraged to move throughout the home – their home – to visit with staff and other residents. Wherever they choose to spend time, they’ll find an atmosphere of independence and quality living. The home environment allows individuals to live and function at their peak abilities and find an exceptional quality of life.
Caregivers at The Gables are highly trained in cutting-edge, evidence-based behavioral interventions to support those living with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. All caregivers receive Alzheimer’s and dementia best care practice training and are required to receive ongoing training on a regular basis.
Our social worker has 30 plus years of experience as a social worker. They educate, train, and provide emotional support to staff, residents, family, and the community. Certified nurse assistants (CNA) / Level I medical techs are present 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The Gables of Cottleville Memory Care Home is not a nursing home – it is home.
Twelve large, private rooms are comfortably situated in the 7,500-square-foot home. Each room has a half bath, closet, and ample space for the residents’ own furniture, encouraging them to make the room their own.
A community dining room, living room, recreation space, and kitchen have modern décor with comfortable furniture, providing the opportunity to converse with family and friends at any time.
Video surveillance inside and outside the home provide an added level of comfort for residents and families. A sturdy, decorative fence allows for safe and secure backyard activities.
