Copperfield

Assisted Living Copperbrook TexasAssisted Living in Houston, TX

The Copperfield Cottage was the very first AutumnGrove Cottage that opened in Houston. The Copperfield Cottage has paved the way for all of our other cottages in providing personal compassionate care to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. This cottage has the distinction of having a very picturesque back yard with lovely bedding plants, trailing vines and gorgeous flowers. Residents enjoy the spacious patio and often spend many mornings and afternoons just enjoying the view.

Inside, the cottage has areas for brain stimulating activities that are enjoyed by all of the residents. The open kitchen allows residents to watch their home-cooked meals being prepared and sometimes they even like to lend a helping hand. The Copperfield Cottage has special evenings with movie nights, old time music specials, reminiscing, and even a dance. The family members of this cottage visit their loved ones every day and are known to help throw cottage holiday parties.

Start Date with AutumnGrove: January 2012

Favorite Part About Working for AutumnGrove: My favorite part of being at AutumnGrove is the small environment. It gives me the ability to be a hands-on manager. Not only do I get time to engage in the activities and personal care for the residents but also the ability to support my residents’ families.

Favorite Activity For Residents: There are a lot and it may change on a daily basis. But a few my residents like are makeovers, balloon toss, and dancing.

What Got You Into Caring for Alzheimer’s Seniors: Seniors have always been a stronghold in my life. From playing Yahtzee with my grandma next door to us having a big family get together every holiday with all of my family, especially my grandparents. Additionally growing up in a big church family and working with the older adults there. But Alzheimer’s is different. I’m often times speaking to people, when asked what I do they bless me for the role that I play in people’s lives. But the true blessing is when you have a breakthrough. You do just that one thing that gets that resident to respond like they’ve never responded before. That’s the true blessing in the whole picture

Favorite Moment of Joy with a resident:  Seeing the residents flourish within the environment. They will often reach a point that they begin relating to others around them. Carrying on conversations and becoming invested in how others are doing. They interact with each other. You can hear empathy, care, compassion and laughter. All of these things just brighten my day and make everything I do worthwhile.

How Long Have You Worked in the Assisted Living Industry: I started August 3rd, 2001.  Prior to Senior Living, I was a teacher.  I would not trade my decision for the world.

Reviews from Caring.com:

When my mother left her home for Autumn Grove I thought she would live there for 6 months to a year. Thanks to the loving care she received she lived happily for four years. The caregivers are not only extremely competent but incredibly dedicated and loving. They treated my mother as if she was their own grandmother. It was comforting to know I could be sick or take a vacation. The facility director couldn’t have been more helpful in every way from walking me through paperwork to making suggestions that made life easier for both my mother and me. The day my mother said “This is a beautiful place” I knew she felt like she was home.
