Reviews of Birchwood Suites Enhanced Assisted Living and Memory Care

  • Not good

    We went on a tour. Staff seemed nice enough but place was very run down and the place stunk. People living there looked more like nursing home residents and were just sitting around and not doing anything....

  • Interesting location with a history to it. Because of this, I felt the facility was a bit dark, not bright and inviting like others I've seen. All staff seemed very nice.

  • Outside property is beautiful but the inside seemed dark and uninviting not like "home" at all. Sale person was nice but did not get a warm fuzzy from other staff.
