From our first meeting at Brandywine Senior Living in Voorhees we knew we were in a very special place. Melissa. Director of Community Relations, was warm and caring, and genuinely interested in my Mom and her needs. She gave us clear and concise information that enabled us to make an informed decision about whether to pursue Brandywine or to look elsewhere. We met Tracy, the Wellness Director who is a Registered Nurse, and she was very knowledgeable about my Mom’s health issues and made her feel comfortable and cared about. The Executive Director of the facility, Gary, has taken the time to know my Mom and us well and he is very interested and attuned to everything going on at Brandywine. We also had occasion to meet Brenda, co-founder, Chief Executive Officer and President of all the Brandywine facilities, and her warmth, kindness and quest for excellence is reflected at every level of Brandywine. The directors of each department, including the nursing staff, the maintenance staff, the helpers, the chefs and the waiters are always trying to make life better, easier and to be enjoyed by my Mom and the other residents, while keeping an eye on the health and safety of the residents as well. The food is excellent and the chefs and servers keep in mind individual residents’ dietary needs and preferences. I once told Gary the director that the best way to describe Brandywine is the word “lovingkindness”.
This was a very important decision where my Mom should live, and she loves it at Brandywine. It looks like a Ritz-Carlton and has so many amenities! There is a physical therapy person on the premises, a chauffeur, many social activities, a theatre, a pub, a hair salon, a pool and more. Brandywine should be the very first place that anyone should look at for assisted living in the Voorhees area. It is wonderful!
