Tour of Birch Heights

We loved Birch Heights, it was just out of our price range at the time. It seemed to be more of assisted living rather than independent, so if my mom ever needs more care in the future, we will be considering this facility.

Overall Very Good Experience

The staff is great. They work hard and are very friendly. But I think they're a little bit short on help, probably because people haven't come back to work after the virus yet. But I think they're doing a great job. The food is excellent. Generally people are happy with the activities that are available, but there are a lot of things like bingo that don't really interest me. I'm looking into starting up some golfing and playing pool, things that are more in line with my desires - more adult activities. They work very hard to keep things clean, and they clean the resident apartments once a week.

A Good Experience

I think Birch Heights has been very nice. With Covid, everything is harder. There are times that my loved one's room is not that clean, but I know they can't always send someone right away every day. They clean the residents' apartments once a week, but he tends to be kind of messy. Add into that quarantine periods where no one can leave their rooms or go into the rooms. So I think they're doing a good job. The facility itself and hallways are always clean. I've noticed the 4th floor smelling like a sewer, but that has to be a special case of just one person's room. My loved one's room and the rest of the building smell fine. I've seen the food, and it looks like there's a lot of variety. My loved ones tend to complain though, especially that portion sizes are too small.. Activities have been slow to start with Covid, but I hear music going on, and I think they're having live activities like chair aerobics and bingo. They have an activities director, and they seem to offer a lot, whether or not people join in. I think it's expensive, but he does get three meals a day, with utilities included, opportunities for socialization, and availability of the front desk to go check on him if I can't reach him, which they've been more than willing to do.

Highly recommend

We looked at a lot of places and ended up choosing Birch Heights because it is entirely independent living but they feed them 4 times a day which is exactly what he needed. My dad loves the food, they are chef prepared meals and they get a couple of choices for every meal. They just started opening up the dining room so that has been good. I only envision it will get better and better with things starting to open up again. I cannot speak highly enough about the facility and I would absolutely recommend them.

Good place for seniors

We chose Birch Heights because it was recommended and we thought it was the best fit at the time. The apartment sizes here are decent, he had the middle sized one and it was adequate for his needs. I would want others to know that we had issues with their accounting department, so be careful with any automatic payments. If they do take your money, they are very slow at giving it back.

While looking for a place for my mother 2 years ago i found Birch Heights to have a very homey friendly environment. And since my mother moved in I have found that that same attitude persists. Also the attempt to invite families to share different occasions with their loved ones
