Carefree Living in a Homelike Community at Elmcroft of Cottonwood

Our senior living home has been part of the beautiful, culturally rich Temple area since 1997. With our friendly, caring atmosphere and devoted staff, Elmcroft of Cottonwood offers a lifestyle of comfort and convenience. Our compassionate caregivers are dedicated to residents’ happiness, well-being and peace of mind, and each resident is treated with dignity and respect. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores. Best of all, our rates are all-inclusive, so there’s no increase in rate if a resident’s needs change.


We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our community is pet friendly. Shared and private apartments are available. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room or as room service as needs arise. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And they delight in our on-site old-time cinema as well as one of the largest activity rooms in the area. When residents want some peaceful quiet, our patio and community gardens, courtyard and comfortable indoor gathering spaces are just right for reading or contemplation.


What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Cottonwood is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our assisted living staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible.


All-Inclusive Rates

While cost may not be the most important factor when considering living options for your loved ones, it can be complicated. Planning for the varying expenses of utilities, maintenance, housekeeping, food and entertainment–and adding the cost of care–can seem overwhelming. As an all-inclusive community, there are never any surprises on a resident’s monthly senior living bill from Elmcroft of Cottonwood. You can budget the exact amount every month for exactly what your loved one needs to continue enjoying life without worry. That predictable pricing means peace of mind when it comes to budgeting.


Respectful, Compassionate Care

One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. Our 24-hour resident care staff, as well as our on-call licensed nurse, on-site maintenance director, culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.


When our residents need a little extra help throughout the day and night, our assisted living staff are specially trained to provide the considerate and compassionate service that helps them thrive. We provide help with day-to-day tasks like incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and dining. And we’re there with support for safe engagement in fun activities like cooking classes, gardening club, live musical events, trivia, arts and crafts, religious services and more.
