Care Types: Assisted Living

We are a vibrant, unique community of residents, staff, and volunteers, dedicated to supporting each other in living each day to its fullest. Our reputation is built on our commitment to our residents and their families to provide safety, kindness, and the highest levels of care. We are nestled on the edge of the Thistledown Development, conveniently located on Rt. 322, three miles East from Hershey Medical Center.

Assisted living is an ideal solution for seniors who recognize the value of preserving their independence and dignity but understand the benefit of coordinating extra support for various activities of daily living throughout the day or night. Our assisted living community allows you to age in place, adjusting your personalized care plan to match your evolving physical and social needs. All our activities and staffing are aligned to meet your needs, while preserving your right to respect, dignity, and personal privacy. …. SHOW MORE

Family Atmosphere

Our unique, single-story, open floorplan design offers a more intimate and homelike setting that promotes contentment and comfortable social interaction. Our spacious rooms, cozy common areas, and outdoor courtyard add to a very peaceful environment.


Rather than having a regimented routine, we honor residents’ daily choices and evolving needs by supporting them in ways that keep them feeling as safe and independent as possible. Our smaller community (40-50 residents) helps maintain personalized care and special relationships. Our smaller communities and/or neighborhoods help maintain personalized care and special relationships.

Age-in-Place Model

We are so dedicated to the philosophy of aging in place that we provide experienced staff and specialized services for 10 levels of individualized care. This enables our residents to enjoy their lives uninterrupted at Columbia Cottage.

Universal Caregivers

It’s comforting for families that the same caregiver interacts with residents throughout the day in different situations. This consistency makes Columbia Cottage different and very special to residents. Nurses are available 24/7 to ensure our high standards of quality.

Core Values

Core values of honoring God, putting people first, building strong relationships, and earning trust are our moral compass for everything we do. It’s also why we maintain staffing levels 2-3 times higher than personal care and skilled nursing facilities.
