Utah’s Top Rated Local® Senior Living Communities Award Winner: Cottonwood Creek

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Cottonwood Creek is a 2018 award winner for senior living communities in Utah!

Are you looking for the right senior care option for yourself or a loved one in Salt Lake City? If so, look no further than Cottonwood Creek, the area leader in senior living.

Cottonwood Creek has earned dozens of online reviews with an average rating of 4.81 stars, an incredible Rating Score™ of 92.07 and a 2018 Top Rated Local award for being ranked among the top 10 senior living communities in all of Utah!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“…To say the staff was fantastic was an understatement! They were attentive, sincere, professional and, most of all, protective and loving to our mother, even when she made it difficult to do so. They treated us like we were family and went the extra mile in everything they did. To be in such a supportive environment during our mother’s passing made the grief process much easier to deal with. Their kindness did not stop there. After Mom passed, they sent our family beautiful flowers. My husband said, after eating in the dining room, that he is ready to move in. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We love you all and can’t thank you enough. Your parent or loved one will be happy and well treated here.” – K.J.

Not Your Average Senior Living Community

At Cottonwood Creek, they focus on six different dimensions of care: emotional, occupational, physical, social, intellectual and spiritual. All of their activity programming is developed around these six dimensions, and they tailor their care to the interests of their residents so that they can get plugged into the activities they are most interested in.

The team at Cottonwood Creek is committed to creating and maintaining a wonderful home for their residents. The community at Cottonwood Creek is beautiful, and the campus is incredibly well-kept.

Another thing that sets Cottonwood Creek apart from other senior living communities is how they take care of their staff. By providing good benefits and pay to their staff, they keep them happy, which leads to better care for their residents.

We asked Trevor Fuhriman, the Executive Director of Cottonwood Creek, why he does what he does and how he works to make the world a better place. This is what he had to say:

“I’ve done this for many years because I love building relationships, working on and establishing cohesive teams, problem-solving and creating the best possible experience for my residents. You have to love working with people and creating a unique and fun atmosphere.”

Building Success With a Warm Environment and Great Partnerships

When asked what Cottonwood Creek’s secret to such a strong online relationship is, Trevor credited it to the wonderful family members of their residents, the incredibly warm environment they’ve worked so hard to create for their residents and the partnerships they’ve developed with health and hospice agencies in the area.

Outside of building a solid online reputation, Cottonwood Creek works to grow by working with outside agencies as well as specialists, like nurses and geriatric specialists. They also get the word out about who they are and what they have to offer by being an active part of their community.

We asked Trevor what advice he has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are his words of wisdom:

“You gotta start internally first. You have to create good care and good staff. Word of mouth is such a big part of this, so once you get a good core staff, you will get good residents. When all those pieces fall into place, positive reviews will come.”


Congratulations to the team at Cottonwood Creek for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Trevor, for taking the time to speak with us!
