The Gardens at Barry Road assisted living facility was recommended by a friend in the region as an option for our aunt.
The backyard features many places for seniors to enjoy around the grounds safely. The property also had plenty of park-like space with tranquil, large trees and nicely manicured lawns. Residents can also tend the garden. There was also a lovely barbeque area.
Community rooms had beautiful decors and plenty of space to engage in a number of social activities like games, reading, TV, crafts and many other interesting things to do. The residents may also host private social events. All of the rooms were spacious enough to include extra seating and tables.
The facility programs are designed to help the staff to encourage residents to enjoy the many physical activities offered. From regular exercise classes such as yoga and aerobics, to weight training and other equipment - there are many options available. The seniors may also enjoy the outer walkways around the building and courtyard safely.
The dining rooms included both casual and formal options. Their menus offer a variety of healthy food options. The food we saw looked nutritious, delicious and smelled really good, too.
The private rooms were decorated tastefully with a homey, light and airy atmosphere. Each unit has nice views of the surrounding area. Bathrooms were designed with safety seats and rails.
It was clear that the care at this facility provides compassionate and understanding attention from caregivers for the best care of its residents.
We were really glad we took the time to visit the Gardens at Barry Road. It was a lovely facility with many wonderful things to do in a safe, caring and thoughtful environment. It is one of our favorites for the region and a strong contender.
