Traditionally, assisted living communities were designed to address elderly isolation, provide nourishing meals, and offer manageable living spaces for its residents. As the assisted living industry continues to develop with the changing needs of the senior population, one locally-owned company maintains their commitment to offering the best in senior care. With a focus on elderly health and well-being paired with a personalized care plan in an intimate, home-like environment, the Cottage offers a unique community, unlike most assisted living communities.
Since 2013, Cottage partner, Dr. Michael Reeves, M.D. of Accountability Healthcare (AHC), has been serving the Alabama Cottage residents in the comfort and convenience of their Cottage home. Reeves and team now serve eight Alabama Cottages, as of 2014. AHC has over 150 years of combined experience in caring for seniors. Their team of doctors and nurse practitioners visit Cottage patients as often as warranted to ensure that health issues are recognized early and appropriate interventions are put into place quickly. This unique service offers a wealth of knowledge to Cottage residents from a team of experienced, Geriatric professionals along with a strong line of communication between the Cottage and AHC for early identification of possible health issues.

The Cottage’s focus on health and well-being is measured by more than a doctor’s check-up. In-house physical therapy through Tri-Vista Rehab is now featured in many Cottage locations. With local, professional therapists, TriVista offers Cottage residents physical, occupational, and speech therapy following surgeries, illnesses, and injuries, all in the comfort of their Cottage home. TriVista Rehab has provided expert therapy services for over 10 years and has been working with the Cottages since 2011. In 2014, TriVista expanded their in-house rehabilitation services from Corinth, MS into the Birmingham and Huntsville Cottages, with plans of further expansion in the near future. These services are provided by a team who understands care planning and offers a robust, individualized exercise program. The collaboration between resident, family, and the Cottage and TriVista team helps strengthen resident health and can minimize fall risk and reduce hospital stays.
The Cottages are committed to continually offering the best in senior care and setting the example of quality through innovation. For details on in-house services, contact a Cottage nearest to you!
