Brandywine Senior Living at Senior Suites in East Norriton, PA
5.0

First, you need to see this facility. They did a major renovation and it looks so different. It has been modernized and looks amazing. My Mom has been at Brandywine for a few years. It is a tough decision to make when your loved one needs more care than what you can give. The apartments are roomy. The food is wonderful. There are so many activities that one will never get bored. My Mom is now on the Reflections-Memory Care Unit. The care and support that she receives is amazing. She is well cared for. The staff is so genuine and supportive to my Mom and family. Administration takes the time to talk with you and answer your questions. It is like an extended family. I am so happy with making the decision to move my Mom to Brandywine.

Granville Place in Burlington, NJ

We chose Granville place because of the location and I liked the layout of the facility, everything was all on one floor. The room sizes here were adequate for what she needed. The staff were very patient and understanding and wiling to help out with whatever we needed. They responded well to our needs and took great care of her and I would absolutely recommend them.
