Imagine a nursing home where residents receive the highest quality of care and are encouraged to take charge of their day and make their own decisions — all delivered in a comfortable household setting.
That’s what a nursing home should be. It’s what the Deupree Cottages are. We take the institution out of long-term caregiving, and it changes everything for everyone involved — the residents, their families, and our staff.
From the private rooms and cozy fireplaces to the open kitchens and common areas, Deupree Cottages is unlike any nursing home you have probably ever seen. Our person-centered care approach allows Cottages residents to live here on their terms, free from restrictive routines. Unless there is a valid medical reason that would be a problem, residents choose their wake-up times, what and when they would like to eat, and what activities they want to participate in.
We have seen remarkable clinical improvements in this environment even for those who have been withdrawn or physically impaired for some time before they came to live here. Most of all, residents live with dignity and respect in an environment that offers freedom, choice, and purpose — with high-quality care provided by an experienced, compassionate, and specially trained professional staff.
As a validation of what we consider our “best in class” status among nursing homes, Deupree Cottages was one of only six American nursing homes to be featured in the 2012 book, Design for Aging: International Case Studies of Building and Program, for our “excellent aged-care environment.” We have also received high resident satisfaction ratings in state surveys.
