About The Cottages of Dakota


The locations of each home allow for privacy and convenience, quiet residential neighborhoods in close proximity to local parks as well as major shopping centers and regional healthcare services all within minutes of three major metro area highways.  Each home has been thoughtfully modified to meet the accessibility needs of individuals with mobility issues while carefully blending into their local neighborhoods. Each home is meticulously maintained to complement the community and to maintain the dignity for all individuals living in a community residential setting.  Depending on the needs and/or personal desire of individuals in need of supports the homes are set up for communal living with the majority of the home outside of private bedrooms being common area or the home has been modified with independence in mind; allowing each individual a 'suite' to call their own including a bedroom, bathroom (accessible) and living room while still maintaining the security of 24 hour shared support staff onsite.
