  • Very nice community, a lot of flexibility in services needed.

    Our first impression of Birchwoods was that it was excellent. For us it was a very good value, but for those who loved ones were more independent it would be more higher priced, but for us it was perfect. The CNA's at this community were great, we also brought in outside services to help out like a physical therapist. The rooms at this community are very functional, they did offered a variety of room sizes to choose from depending on what you needed.The food was good, no excellent but overall good.

    We chose Brichwoods at Canco Assisted Living because of the location, the warmth of the staff, and we were able to get her on the first floor which was huge. It also had decent reviews. The room sizes are average. The food is being delivered right now and is not the same as it was pre-covid. Our favorite part about this community is that the staff members really care about the residents that live there. I would recommend.

    The community overall is ok. There are some things we think they could do better especially with staffing. It seems like at times they are understaffed and that seems to create a lot of turnover. The community itself is clean, however I do think they could do better with my mother's apartment. The staff is pretty friendly and the care is pretty good.
