The Cottages Memory Care Community was originally founded as Irvine Cottages by Dr. Jacqueline DuPont in 1996 and has been dedicated to providing compassionate assisted living and memory care for older adults and their families in a unique, small residential environment. In 2020, Dr. Dupont donated Irvine Cottages to Alzheimer’s Orange County (AlzOC) which has committed to not change the policies, programs and staff already in place.

In 2021, AlzOC expanded its residential service program by adding three new residences that were acquired from Laney’s Cottages and Irvine Cottages was renamed to The Cottages Memory Care Community. Today we serve 90 seniors across 15 locations in Orange County.
We are dedicated to serve and care for each resident as a family member and provide them the kind, loving and professional memory care you trust in a warm, safe and comfortable home that can give you peace of mind. Every detail of our care, the staff, our homes, the food, medication supervision, activities, and more are based on this compassionate approach.
Our practices are state-of-the-art when it comes to dementia care and assisted living; including all stages of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and dementia, and our services have been trusted and recognized by families for over 20 years.
Why Should You Consider a Residential Memory Care Facility (or Board & Care)?
Most professionals agree that memory-impaired and/or medically frail people function better when living in smaller surroundings with a familiar group of people. As a result, we have created real homes, just like the ones our residents have lived in most of their lives.
Our services help ease the burden of caregiving and puts your loved ones in highly-skilled and compassionate hands that makes your life easier and ensures that your loved one still gets the care they need.
