We are so very happy to call Cottingham mom’s home. “Cottingham Retirement Community continues to be a wonderful home for my mom. As we searched for a Retirement community, we felt immediately welcomed from our initial visit, as we were shown around the community and personally introduced to the staff and residents. Mom initially moved into Independent Living and has since moved into Assisted Living with the help, guidance and support of the staff. We are so very thankful for the kindness, compassion, and continued support of the staff and the many friends mom has made. We are so very happy to call Cottingham mom’s home.”
