After Bruce and Jean Burtonʼs large home in St. George became challenging to maintain, they downsized and moved into the Cottages, where they could still live in their own homes without worrying about caring for a house and property.
Bruce devotes the free time he now has to his passion for watercolor painting. Our residents love his one- of-a-kind Christmas cards.
Bruce & Jean take advantage of all the activities in the community. They attend all the local Musical Theater productions & Concerts with our group, and Bruce never misses a chance to play BINGO on our game days. They are avid Utah Jazz fans and spend endless nights rooting for their team, thanks to our built-in large flat-screen TVs. Recently, we celebrated their 65 Wedding Anniversary with them at the Cottages!
Dorothy has been a member of our Cottages Family for 9 years. She adores the fact that she has a personal chauffeur at the Cottages that drives her daily to her favorite shopping destinations, medical appointments, and church services, as well as her favorite beauty salon for pedicures.
She cherishes living in a residence that allows her to maintain her active lifestyle and freedom while enjoying a wide range of amenities and socialization opportunities.
Dorothy enjoys spending time in our dining room and community center because the chef-prepared meals are delicious, and she loves spending time with her neighbors and new friends.
Marilyn Carney came to the Cottages for help as her husband Geneʼs health had started to decline. Marilyn decided that she could not continue to take care of a home, cook & clean every day, and take care of Gene who required her constant attention. Also, Marilyn & Gene had decided that they would not move anywhere that required them to leave their precious dog behind. The Cottages were the perfect match for all of their needs, especially since our caring staff takes care of all the “chores” of cooking meals, cleaning the house, doing the laundry, and taking care of the maintenance of a home. But the best part for Marilyn & Gene
was that the Cottages is truly a pet-friendly Community with fenced-in back- yards & our own dog park located conveniently close to all the Cottages. Gene has since passed away, however, Marilyn still has her wonderful companion Mikey at her side! Marilyn walks Mikey down our private street without having to worry about either of their safety. During the most recent uncertain times, Marilyn said it is so reassuring to know that she is living in a community where the entire team is looking out for her best interests and taking care of her every need.
