Assisted Living Reviews for Birchwood Suites

February 07, 2014

By wedared2care

I am a friend or relative of resident

Absolutely beautiful! My mom is a resident in Birchwood and I am their biggest fan. Not only are the grounds and facilities beautiful, the care is incredible. Mom had a few unique issues and Avi and his staff were more than welcoming to us. This is moms 3rd Assisted Living (she was in some of the "bigger" and "nicer" but was never happy, now she is so happy and satisfied when I see her. I have only the greatest things to say about Birchwood and have already recommended it to 2 family friends.
