Visited this facility
The Birchwood Care Home is conveniently located in the heart of the city and Uptown area of Minneapolis, where my great-aunt has lived all of her life. Most of her family is there, so it will be very easy to visit her. Because it is right near Calhoun Square, Lake Calhoun and Bryant Square Park - they offer many outings to those lovely urban areas. The main areas were well-appointed and easy to navigate. The private rooms are decorated in neutral colors, so it is easy to add your own personality to make it more personal. The bathrooms were nicely done with grab bars near the tub and toilet areas. The closets were a nice size. There is individually controlled heat and air conditioning, which our great aunt really appreciates. Also, there are hook-ups for cable and Internet service. In addition to medical licensed nursing, they have therapeutic and social services departments. The one service we hadn"˜t seen elsewhere, is the trust account management and financial assistance with budgeting. Since our great-aunt can be forgetful, this feature will help her to maintain her resources, which she sometimes worries about. The facility makes the effort to tailor their services to suit each resident's requirements. They create individualized service plans, coordinated by registered nurses. The staff was very friendly. The formal dining room served delicious food, had great choices and had a nice, communal vibe. The semi-private dining area is great for guests. The fireplace lounge was really charming. There is a music room, arts and crafts and library area. Our great-aunt really liked the video library, as she is an avid film watcher.
