Assisted Living in Katy, TX

AutumnGrove Cottage is the first of it’s kind in the Katy area. Settled in the heart of the Katy community, the Katy Cottage has been home to many over the past seven years. The manager and caregivers at this cottage have a dedication and compassion for helping those with memory loss like no other. The Katy Cottage is always full of smiling residents and adoring family members. The manager will often have holiday, birthday, anniversary and themed parties for the residents to enjoy. So many families visit the cottage that we put swings at the end of the spacious yard for the children to play. When you walk into the cottage you will see residents involved in brain stimulating activities and socializing with the caregivers. There is always something exciting going on at the Katy Cottage.

Start Date with AutumnGrove: December 2007

Favorite Part About Working for AutumnGrove: I especially enjoy all my caregivers and am so touched to watch them care for our residents. They certainly have the same love I do for our residents, and we are all motivated with compassion for the resident’s families who join in everyday.

Favorite Activity for Residents: The most enjoyable activities for our residents are musical entertainment of all kinds and anything that can be done outdoors.The garden with flowers and birds and a walking path brings out the best in every resident.Meals are especially enjoyable the residents and caregivers.  We all eat together and talk and laugh a lot.They like smiling faces, beautiful sounds, tasty foods and familiar smells coming from the kitchen.

What Got You Into Caring for Alzheimer’s Seniors: Assisted Living had just begun in Houston, and I had been teaching high school for five years.The science teacher next door to me said her grandmother lived in a community that was so different from a nursing home.When I called to find out about it, they asked me to interview for an opening. For the passed twenty years I have loved working with the ”other seniors.”

Favorite Moment of Joy with the Residents: The blessing of coming to AutumnGrove is being able focus on the most delicate individuals, those who are able to thrive with love and laughter in the simplest setting. We keep it simple and make it fun.

I can tell that all of Mom’s caregivers at AutumnGrove Cottage in Katy truly “care” about my mom’s comfort level. They express heartfelt concern when that’s appropriate but what I love the most is that they “celebrate” the small improvements and wonderful moments when Mom really surprises us with her wonderful smile and witty sayings and facial expressions.
