Nurses Keep us on our Feet

reviewed on: 12/10/2019 by Birches Residents

My previous review had the nurses names as ‘Name Removed’. So here is a rewrite of my review. The full time assisted living nurses are wonderful. It is as if they are a member of our families looking after us. They make sure we’re ok and they can tell when something is off. We hope they stay at the Birches forever. The Birches needs to make sure they stay for a long time.

they have those extra touches

reviewed on: 12/15/2017 by Anonymous

While we were looking for a location for our love one, we really did our homework on the different properties in the area. I have working in HR and healthcare for a number of years and I can say that everything here is going very well. This facility had some extra touches that set them apart from the others. It’s a smaller privately owned place and their food is homemade, except for their desserts since they do not have a pastry chef. For their food they have 3 choices for lunch and dinner and pretty anything at breakfast. They are very aware of the slice cutting because it takes affect to how others eat their food if they have trouble chewing. I also like how they have a tab of where she is. My only frustration, and it is very minimal, is that they have a washer and dryer (2 of each) on each floor. This is obviously not enough for all the tenants and sometimes you have someone’s clothes in there for 2 hours and you don’t want to touch anyone’s clothes. What also nice about this location is that they have a 1 car garage attached to the building that you can pull into to unload, load, drop off, or for in climate weather reasons. No one can stay in the garage, but I think it’s a nice touch. The facility is very clean which is very important to me, there are no strange odors, and it’s in a convenient location near my house.

What makes the Birches stand out against other communities? The Residents and their Families. With Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s, we get to meet so many residents and their families. Everyone is no nice. We share stories, good and bad, we laugh and we cry. It is a shame that these family gatherings (holiday lunch or brunch) are so few and far between, and to put it mildly, so expensive given what we’re paying in rent. So, we've come up with an idea. For Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day have a FREE barbecue for families. All you need is burgers, brats, hot dogs, and chicken. A BIG SHOUTOUT to the FRONT DESK staff and the DINING ROOM and KITCHEN staff. Everyone agreed the brunch was GREAT and they are GREAT. Additionally most families agreed, we don’t know management. Management is not here on weekends or evenings or on the holidays. We'd like management to know us and for us to know management.

Small and cozy, but again geared towards assisted living and folks were very elderly.

Just like home!
