Courage Cottage / Assisted Living

Courage Cottage

On the corner of Columbia Avenue and First Street in Morris, sits a warm, inviting home. From the outside, it doesn’t look too different from many other homes in the Morris community, but inside residents and their families find physical, emotional, and spiritual support. The Courage Cottage offers specialized, assisted-living care in a home-like setting and provides both hospice and long-term care. Their services have brought support and comfort to countless residents and their families since its inception in 2001. The Stevens County community has come to know and depend on the Courage Cottage for its excellent services right here at home. The Stevens Community Medical Center owns and operates the Courage Cottage as a department of the healthcare center.

Please call for more information or to take a tour. The Courage Cottage director can be reached at (320) 585-5133.

DONATIONS

The Courage Cottage relies on fundraising efforts to meet operating expenses. Unfortunately, the cost to the resident does not fully cover the expenses. We remain committed to keeping resident fees affordable to make services accessible for everyone. We are asking those who believe in the Courage Cottage and those people who have experienced excellent care and services to consider making a contribution to the Courage Cottage. Every dollar given makes a difference for Courage Cottage residents and their families. We welcome and treasure any amount. Memorial gifts are a wonderful way to honor and remember a loved one and to in turn support the Courage Cottage. Learn More →
