I visited this facility

Myself and my son came for a tour for my husband. The house was very beautiful and the staff were very friendly. We could tell right off the bat, that the residents were happy and very well cared for. I live close to Briarwood and never realized that they were here. We were looking for future placement, and we were very pleased. When we are ready, Briarwood is where I would like him to be.

My grandfather has been a resident for the past year. I am extremely happy with the staff as they treat my grandfather as family. The facility is clean and has a cozy home like setting. I can see the difference in my grandfather as he is participating with others and joins in activities daily.

I came to visit this facility for my mother, and I couldn’t be more pleased about the place and the staff so friendly and helpful with all my questions. I feel like I will be at peace when I make the decision when it’s time. I know she will be in great hands.

Briarwood is a lovely place with wonderful people working there. My Mom has been at Briarwood for 3.5 years and we are happy with how she is cared for. We enjoy visiting with everyone, my Mom, the Staff and the other residents. The decision to have my Mom live here is, it is like home, not a nursing home. The house reminds me of a bed and breakfast. They have do many things to enrich the lives of their "guests". I give Briarwood two thumbs up!!! Thank you for the awesome care you are giving my Mom! You have given my family peace of mind about Mom's care!!! Thank you!!

Ever since mom moved into this briarwood senior living facility, we've seen such a positive change in her mood. The staff is exceptionally caring and attentive. They take the time to know each resident personally. The place is always spotlessly clean, and it feels like a second home for our family.

I visited this facility

We have chosen Briarwood Senior Living for my mother because of the size of the facility, which was the most important thing for us. It's a very small facility. I think that my mother is going to get a higher level of attention than I think she needs. The staff member who toured me was very friendly and very informative. There seemed to be a close bond between the staff and the residents there. I did not try the food. I saw the menu, and all I can see right now appears to be OK. It's not a newer type of building, but there are many facilities there for my mother. One thing that I think she's going to enjoy is the salon that they have. They have somebody come in to do hair care and things like that. Everything else seemed to be fine. There's a dining area. They don't really have a gym, but I think they have an area where they can do physical therapy with the residents over there. Everything seemed to be clean. There's an outdoor porch type area that they can sit at. There's a backyard that we didn't really look at too closely because it was a little rainy that day when we were there, so we didn't really look at it. But there's a backyard type of area for the residents to walk around at.

Briarwood Senior Living helped my love one in so many ways. We are a tight knit and very close small family. Briarwood recognized that and became a member of our fam. Everyone is so polite and helpful. We are all on a first name basis there and my loved one is always attended to with 5 star care. The rooms are pristine and very comfortable and the food is terrific. But most of all the family atmosphere we get from everyone is above all. What a truly amazing place. Thank you Briarwood for all that you do and continue to do!!

My aunt and uncle were/are both residents there. My uncle continues to live there. The staff are accommodating and amazing. They care deeply for the residents as if they were their own family. The food is good and they give generous portions. The staff works closely with families regarding patient care in all aspects (medications, vaccinations, well-being, healthcare, and many other areas). The rooms are spacious and safety is a priority. Residents enjoy a myriad of activities such as games, music, community relations interactions, celebrations and many more!

I had to place my uncle at Briarwood. He loved it. The staff was attentive. He had great fun. To me it was the best place for him. Small number of residents. Personal attention. He was there over three years until he passed away. He actually passed away in the arms of a staff member. So loving and personal. Great home!

Thank you so much for your kind review! We are so happy your uncle feels at home!

I went to visit a friend here. His memory is good. He had a horrible accident, but he is cognitively impaired. For somebody who needs that and is in that state, it was nice enough. It's small, and I think they have very good care. I found it terribly depressing, but it was like a home. It was almost like a house. It was as if maybe 8 or 12 people were living together in a home. Everybody had their own bedroom. It was very clean. and it was very country. I didn't get the impression that it was ultramodern. It was almost as if you're staying in a country farmhouse. The upkeep was very nice. The staff were very good. They're very caring and very loving. This is definitely assisted facility. There's a lot of help there with good help for each person. I don't know what their activities are.

I visited this facility

I toured Briarwood Senior Living for my mother and to be honest with you, I didn't like anything of it. Everyone there looked like they were in a coma. They were just sitting around, not talking, not doing anything. They were just sitting and watching the television. Nobody spoke. And the facility was old. It's just one building to everything. I toured for assisted living. It's a big house and two floors. But I would never put my mother there. The staff was pleasant. I just did not like the facility. It didn't look like they had much of anything, and it didn't look like they offered too much.

Provider Response

Extremely pleased with Briarwood and its staff. We looked at a number of facilities for my grandmother but decided on Briarwood for its cleanliness and the freindliness of it's staff. We were all treated with such respect and consideration that we felt like home. i was informed that the building is under new award managegement which explains the good results. My family couldn't be more grateful for the good work you all do, thank you guys!!
