  • A safe and attractive community. We are very happy.

    I feel lucky that we found Birchwood Gardens, which is one of the Birchwood assisted living properties. I see that my mother is comfortable and has consistent care, unlike some of the other facilities that we have tried. The small home setting allows the staff to give personal attention to each resident, and they welcome my visits and my input. They are competent and respectful. I sleep better because I believe that she is safe.

  • Hidden Gem!

    We had an absolutely great experience at Birchwood estate. The house was very clean with great food. My father cleaned his plate everyday. Staff was kind and considerate. He was well taken care of. [Name removed] who over sees the house would send me pictures of my dad weekly as I live out of state. So happy we found this Gem!!!

  • These folks were not expecting us. The driveway was not plowed and when we knocked on the only accessible door, no one answered. We later found out that we could only enter via the front door so had to "shovel" our way in. The place looks clean, but suspect they are somewhat short staffed. There didn't seem to be any list of activities. They are opening a new one in Saline. Do you know when that will happen.
