Wesbury Care Cottage
To meet the growing demands of area seniors, Wesbury is offering a new approach to senior living, the Wesbury Care Cottage.
The Wesbury Care Cottage is a residential three bedroom home that offers a maximum of three residents twenty-four/seven, around-the-clock “Wesbury at Home” services to meet their day to day needs. The Cottages are furnished, private homes that are beautifully decorated with plenty of room for the residents to visit with one another, with family, or to have their own privacy. Each Care Cottage is located within minutes from shopping, entertainment, and medical facilities.
The Care Cottages are designed to provide safety and support to low-income residents who qualify for CHC Waiver or to those that can pay privately who prefer to reside in a homelike setting as an alternative to personal care or assisted living environments.
The following services may be included: assistance with bathing, dressing, ambulation, exercise, meal preparation, laundry, housekeeping, medication reminders, social outings, and medical appointments. Residents may also participate in daily crafts, games, movies, bird watching, gardening, or simply kicking back to relax and enjoy the peaceful setting.
The Room & Board fee is determined on an individual basis and never exceeds the resident’s income and affordability. Additionally, each of the three residents is required to cover the cost for eight hours of Wesbury at Home Caregivers to pay for 24-hour care. This cost is $156 per day, however, this fee is typically covered by CHC Waiver funds, which is home based Medicaid.

Are you a caregiver looking for a low stress, homelike environment where you can work independently taking care of seniors in your community?
Wesbury at Home is seeking caregivers to staff their Meadville and Titusville Care Cottages.
This is a great opportunity to enjoy consistent hours and a work environment with three residents to one caregiver ratio that promotes working independently. The work setting is a homelike environment with three residents to one staff per shift. With flexible scheduling there are opportunities for more time off in a row than similar care positions. You will build close, trusting relationships with the residents under your supervision.
Care Cottage caregivers provide support to seniors by assisting with (ADL’s) Activities of Daily Living and (IADL’s) Instrumental Activities of Daily Living, which may include reading or playing games, cooking, household chores, helping with hygiene, or getting dressed.
