Who We Are​

~Columbia Care Cottage is an Adult Foster Care Home that is owned and operated by a local Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner and her family and Staff.

~Columbia Care Cottage opened April 1994 and was originally located at 950 S.E. 5th Street, Hermiston, Oregon.  As the business needs continued to grow we relocated to a larger facility in 1999 at our current location of 325 Leaf Lane, Hermiston, Oregon.

~We are committed to offering exceptional individualized care to our Rural Community's aged and disabled population

~Columbia Care Cottage is a family held Corporation of Ozmac, Inc. doing business as Columbia Care Cottage.

~ We are nestled in a rural setting, located on the west side of Hermiston overlooking the Umatilla River. We are located close to the paved nature paths and park, shopping, restaurants,  pharmacies, urgent care facilities, physician offices and local hospital.

Every business has a beginning, and this is where you talk about yours. People want to know what opportunity you saw or how your passion led to the creation of something new. Talk about your roots--people wanna know you have some.

About

 

Did you know you have a choice?

Many people don't even realize they have other living options.  They live the remaining years of their lives in a commercial facility, often feeling alone, depressed, and forgotten.
But this does not have to be you...

We are not like your typical facility...

What's the difference between Columbia Care Cottage and other Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing homes?

  •  Columbia Care Cottage is an Adult Foster Home.  Unlike commercial facilities, top of the line Adult Foster Care Homes offer care that is second to none.
  • The statistics are showing that the longevity of life of someone living in an Adult Foster Home far exceeds that of a person living in a Nursing Home.  
  • At Columbia Care Cottage, we are proud to offer a minimum caregiver to patient ratio of 1:5 to 2:5. This means one or two caregiver are available to care for  5 patients. This is unmatched by any of the commercially run institutions that operates with a 1:10 to 1:30 depending on the shift.  This enables us to offer impeccable service and nurturing care!

-We Treat You Like Family!

Note from John Marvin, MD Hospice Physician that Candace had the privilege to work with as Dr. John provided superior hospice services to many clients at Columbia Care Cottage from 1994 until his passing. He was never in a hurry, making you feel that you were his priority and the care he gave was always from the heart.  We will always miss him.

We were so worried about our mother when she started showing signs of aging, leaving the stove on, forgetting where she put things and then getting lost when driving her car around the town she had driven in for 60 years.

Everyone has heard the night mares about care facilities for the elderly.  We knew we had to find the right facilities for our mother.  We started  interviewing places who held license to care for the elderly.  From Portland,OR to Pendleton, LaGrande and back to Hermiston to our surprise we hit the gold mine right here where our parents lived for 60 some years. Just 10 minutes from where most of us live.
