Happy New Year!
Alzheimer’s entered my life with a diagnosis for both of my parents. During my care giving years wonderful, amazing people came into my life. No longer a caregiver I am still blessed daily by the wonderful people Alzheimer’s continues to bring into my life.
Each day at Priscilla’s Cottage I am surrounded by the laughter and love of our friends. My heart is filled with joy every day as I listen to our friends talk, laugh and enjoy being here with each other.
Friendships are a true blessing for each of us. I love spending my days hearing the stories of their lives. They inspire me daily to be a better person.
Our friends families are also an inspiration to me. I admire and respect each one of you. I know your daily struggles, how stressful life can be for each of you. I am thankful that we can give you a break from caregiving.
Thank you for sharing your loved ones with us. We are blessed each day by you and your loved ones.
I hope 2018 is a happy, healthy and wonderful year for everyone.

Priscilla’s Cottage is a social day program for early to mid Alzheimer’s, other dementias and memory issues in Gwinnett County, GA. We are a unique respite program since we only have participants with memory conditions. Our smaller program offers individual care for the participants and a less stressful environment for those who attend.
I created Priscilla’s Cottage for two reasons. First, I wanted a place where caregivers could leave their loved ones so they could have a break from care giving. Caregivers need to take care of themselves, go out to lunch with friends, play golf or just have some me time.
Secondly, Priscilla’s Cottage is for those who have memory conditions to make friends, have fun and to socialize. I know many caregivers feel their loved ones will not want to stay without them. However, once they walk in the door those who attend Priscilla’s Cottage are very happy to be there.
Our days are filled with fun, stimulating activities designed to keep everyone who attends engaged throughout the day. We have an outdoor patio for gardening or relaxing in the fresh air. Snacks and lunch are included in the program.
Most importantly each participant is treated with dignity. Food gets spilled, crafts can be a little messy or words cannot be found. This is just part of the day, we keep the day moving as if nothing happened. For them to feel respected is very important to us.
At Priscilla’s Cottage keeping your loved one safe is our top priority. We are a locked facility with keypad access. We have live cameras that you can sign onto during the day to see how your loved one is doing. All of our staff are CPR certified and have dementia care experience.
Contact us to schedule your loved ones free half day visit at Priscilla’s Cottage.
We also have a quiet resting room if your loved one needs rest.
At Priscilla’s Cottage we want to help support you as you care for your loved one. Having been on this journey myself I know no one should do it alone. If you have questions or just need to talk please contact us. We are here to support you.
