Our Nurses

reviewed on: 11/06/2019 by Birches Residents

Nurse Debbie, Nurse Karen, and Nurse Kim are wonderful. We talk about our families. It is as if they are a member or our families and we know theirs. They make sure we’re ok and they can tell when something is off. We hope they stay at the Birches forever.

Merry Christmas?

reviewed on: 12/14/2019 by Anonymous

My mother spent the last month secretly trying to find out the favorite restaurants of certain staff members. Once she had the information, she sent me on a shopping mission. Get gift cards for 5 restaurants. I did our shopping and last week I started our giving. First stop, the front desk. As I attempted to give our gift, I was told. Thank you, but I need to let you know that staff can accept small gifts, but gift cards will be given to management and they will use them to purchase something for everyone. She chose the specific staff members to give gifts to, because of what they’ve done for her, not because they work at the Birches. Now we have 5 restaurant gift cards, for restaurants we don’t frequent. If the Birches has this policy, perhaps they should have told the residents and their families prior to Thanksgiving. My mother was told by other residents that they give gift cards and there is an envelope for the dining room and kitchen staff at the front desk. The Birches sent out a survey last month and the first question was: Does the Birches feel like home? The answer is NO! It is funny, that as I am writing this, I came across an advertisement for the Birches in the Chicago Tribune. An advertisement I had seen not long ago. I now have a few comments on the advertisement. “Included in monthly rent” are: “Chauffer and courtesy car” – Be sure to get the specifics on how far and what days and times this is available. The lease states “transportation to appointments within a 5-mile radius on a first-come first-served basis.” Unless it is the Amita Health Center in Hinsdale which Google Maps says is 3.7 miles away. They said NO without even verifying the mileage. Just so you know, Hinsdale Hospital is 2.9 miles away, LaGrange Hospital is 4.1 miles away, Good Samaritan Hospital is 5.3 miles, and Elmhurst Hospital is 7.7 miles away. “Weekly housekeeping” – Be sure to get a definition of weekly and a definition housekeeping. The lease states “Weekly housekeeping of Resident’s apartment. This thirty-minute cleaning includes vacuuming and dusting; sweeping and wet mopping of floors; kitchen counters, sink, kitchen appliances; bathroom fixtures, vanity, and shower.” I know her apartment doesn’t get cleaned weekly, but I’ll have to ask her to start timing the cleanings.

Peace of mind that my dad was in good hands

It is a friendly family atmosphere. The staff really gets to know the residents on a personal level. Rooms sizes are great. Memory care residents have access to all areas of the community. They have outdoor gardens. They have lots of activities. They decorated for every holiday. A very homey community. The staff gets to know the families as well. At the end of live they were very helpful with resources.

A Great Place for Mom

reviewed on: 07/10/2017 by Anonymous

The Birches was by far the best of the four facilities we visited. Not only did it look nice, we got the sense the people there truly cared about what they were doing and that it was more than just a job. We were utterly impressed by everything. Everyone we met was friendly, professional and caring. The staff took the time to listen to our needs and determine if their facility was the right one for my mom. The studio apartment we saw was perfect. It contained a kitchenette, a roomy living/sleeping area, and a spacious bathroom/shower with the required ADA fixtures. They had a wide range of activities for the residents to take part it in and the dining area looked better than those found in most hotels. We spoke with a number of the residents and they all spoke highly of the staff. After we decided on The Birches, the entire process went very smoothly. The contract was very straight forward and easy to understand and the staff immediately put my mom at ease when they met for her health evaluation. My mom has been there for about a month and all goes well. She has an emergency pager in case she needs help and the staff checks in on her regularly. The meals look good, taste delicious and care is taken to ensure they are nutritious and properly proportioned. The cable television provides a wide variety of programs and her room receives a proper cleaning once a week, all included in the monthly rent. We are very happy with our decision and you would be hard-pressed to find a facility better than this one. Highly recommended.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas

Wordsmithed for my mother and her friends. As Thanksgiving is coming, we reflect on the past and think of our family and our friends. Those that are still here and those that have left our community. Spending nine months in a building with the same people creates a special bond. We depend on each other and thank each other for looking after everyone in our new family. As Christmas is coming, we think of ways to thank those who have meant much to us during the year. To the front desk: THANK YOU You are the heart of The Birches. We pester you day and night with our happiness and our sorrows, we request things of you that you cannot do, and we blame you when they are not done. You see us every day, you know when we are doing well and when we are doing poorly. Most importantly, when we are doing poorly, you get us help. THANK YOU. To Katie and the Activities Team: THANK YOU We experienced the worst in the first few months of the pandemic. The paper on the back of our doors, said DO NOT LEAVE. Unless you are in that room, unable to come and go, you do not know what it is like. One learns what the term stir crazy really means. When the restrictions were lifted, the Activities Team continuously tried to offer things to keep us busy. They did a great job. Our favorite was Concerts in the Parking Lot. It sounds silly, but they were FANTASTIC. Thank you. The Birches Bus Road Trips were a nice, safe way to get out of the building. Thank you. To Chef Danny and the Kitchen and Dining Room Team: THANK YOU Talk about a person who brings fun and caring to the Birches, that would be Chef Danny. Whether Chef Danny is barbequing something special on the outside grill or serving us breakfast early on a Sunday morning, he puts a smile on our faces. THANK YOU. Despite all the turnover to his staff, from losing long term servers who knew what we wanted before we sat down and having them replaced with high schoolers, he made us feel special. If you have a special need or a special request, he does his best to make it happen. Since his arrival he was always trying new things on us and we were so happy when he finally re-vamped the whole menu. Plus, we now have many al a carte items we can order, like the fish of the day, all day breakfast, hamburgers, and more. And do not forget the dining room staff and the cooks. We are a hard group to please and not always the nicest. Thank you for your patience and effort in doing all you do.
