I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My sister went to Briarwood Health Care Center. They can do medication and do the rehabilitation. It is an older facility, but it's well kept up and it's bright. The walls are painted. Nothing's falling apart. The rooms are kind of institutional, but that's fine. The staff is very good to my sister. They're helpful and outgoing. They talk to her, so that's good. I know that they have a happy hour, a card club, and arts and crafts. I've not had the food myself. It can be institutional style, but it does have flavor and it's a varying menu. If there's something that you do not like on the menu, you have options other than getting what they have that day. Instead of having a hamburger, you can have a salad. The staff is always helpful, always congenial, and cordial, and they talk a lot with her.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mother-in-law is at Briarwood Health Care Center. It's a skilled nursing facility. In general, we think the staff is really very good there. The physical facility is a little old and kind of dated. It's not as nice as the place that she was at before, but it's working OK for her, and she's happy to stay there. The reason we were moving her was because she was in a semi-private room and we wanted her closer to where we were. However, a private room became available, so she's moving into that. I never ate there, but she seems to be fairly happy with the food. The staff is excellent, and they take patients out for meals. She went there for rehab, but now she's more in the nursing home. It's fairly expensive.

I am a past client of this provider

The actual facility is a bit dreary. It's an old nursing home that was redone with dark oppressive colors. Few windows and exposed pipes. All the makings for a depressing nursing home but........it ends up being like that homely dog that you just can't help loving. The management is too stern for me, but my mothers immediate nurses and her cnas were great. The activities were fun. The food was terrible, I mean really terrible, but still I loved the place.

I am/was a resident of this facility

The staff were very good. Whenever I had a problem, somebody would always be there to help me. The room was acceptable but not too fancy. The meals were very good. They had a group room where they brought in entertainment, like games or other activities that anybody in a wheelchair could enjoy. They had religious services, too. I would suggest they put better decorations in the rooms. They did not allow pets to live with the residents, but they allowed the pets to visit if somebody brought them in.
