Birchwoods at Canco is very nice, and it seems to be a very clean, friendly situation. I was there for lunch today, the food was excellent, and they even have a violinist playing there at lunchtime. It was really delightful. My friend's apartment is very comfortable and homey. My friend needs assistance there, and the nurses come in at a timely basis to take care of him. I think it's very well-run and very well-organized, and everybody's very friendly. It's a place I wouldn't mind being in myself. My friend enjoys his apartment, and the nurses come in and give him his insulin and blood sugar. He's very well cared-for.
Portland Adult Services Does not do their job April 06, 2016

Current 2016 management of Birchwoods at Canco in Portland is not doing their job properly: They lack follow-up making sure their "MEMORY CARE RESIDENTS" are actually being cared for. How can a resident know to clip their toe nails, clean their refrigerator after hoarding for weeks on end, get their hair cut and other daily activities we all take for granted are actually being met? Should assisted living facilities be "for profit"??? It's all about receiving the rent money on time for the investors! Sundry supplies should be monitored to make sure residents have "special needs underwear", toothpaste, soap, makeup, etc...State of Maine-Portland Adult Protective Services is another joke. The State of Maine elder guidelines are horrific; their lack of follow-up for complaints is dismal!!! The Assisted Living For-Profits and the State of Maine Portland Adult Protective Services duo are a perfect pair, but not in a good way!!!

I have a very positive impression of Birchwood. They seem to have all of the things that we need except that it is not a specific memory care facility and because my mother has Alzheimer's, that’s what we need.

Birchwood was very positive. It was a very nice place. It was very much like with the one that my mother-in-law was in. I know other people's parents had gone there, and they had been very happy with the experience. The people who took me on a tour were very nice. The atmosphere seemed good. The rooms that I saw were very similar also with the rooms where my mother-in-law was in, although the lower level rooms did not have doors to the outside. The people there seemed to be quite happy.
