Everyone has been so helpful and they care for my dad very well.
They have been wonderful in every way. I feel like my dad is getting good care. People are helpful and kind. I have no complaints at all. I would recommend this facility for any one. I love the courtyard. Me and my dad are able to sit outside and watch the birds.

Our Experience
The facility is in major need of a facelift. Dirty doors, outdated interiors, garden area is awful and unkept as well. Walkways need pressure washing, the place just feels dirty and old. Not that patients are terribly concerned and I'm not saying you need to install marble and oriental rugs, but I do believe families looking at placement expect more. When I brought my Mother there in January 2024, I was told there would be a major renovation and that never happened. I know the food is not appetizing as well. The staff and care is the best thing going at Briar Glen, they need to feel appreciated.

Briar Glen review
Staff was friendly. Assured me that she would be well taken care of, assisted to activities, there would be Bible study and services on Sunday. When I picked her up, her clothes were still in her suitcase like we left her with. When I picked up her meds from the nurses station, there were no meds missing from her bottle. I know this because I counted them before I sent them to the nursing staff. Mom said the only activities was sitting them all in the tv room. I will not be taking her back there!

The staff are wonderful. Most are long term employees that really care about the residents. I would give it a 5 but the units are 20+ years old and need refurbishing. BG painted the room per my request. The staff are always kind, engaging and happy. I am always informed any time my family member has a physical issue. They even report if they have a headache or aches and pains. Pleased with quality of food and variety. They offer activities from 9-5 and really engage the residents. Comparable to other homes in the area

So far so good
Certainly housekeeping/maintenance could use improvement , doors, door facings need cleaning or painting. The interiors are in need of serious updating. Pressure washing of outdoor areas needed on patios and walkways. The staff is very conscientious and communication with the famliy is good. The food is mediocre, I would not be interested in dining there. Too many pickled beets! And some of the food combinations seem odd. I would recommend this facility to others on the basis of care and cost, and have done so.

They are wonderful. We picked this community, because they are geared towards dementia and alzheimer's patients. They were caring, and calm towards the residents. My loved one was pleased with the breakfast. They have tons of activites, such as; chair yoga exercises, chair volleyball, church hyms, and musicical guests. They have a daily schedule posted with activities, and the food options.

Spacious Environment-Friendly Staff-Affordable Community
They have all been great. The food is good. They go out of way, to make sure the residents is happy with the food options. They have nice rooms. We picked this community because, the layout allows residents to walk around in a spacious environment, and it's more freedom outside, in which they have a great courtyard. Also, it's a closer location to home. Overall, my loved one is happy.

Disappointed
It was bright and clean when we moved in but then something drastically changed. The reason we moved our loved one out was because after a month of being there, the housekeeping went way down and the whole facility smelled like urine. If your loved one is a diabetic, they are not really equip to take care of them. They say that they are, but we gave specific orders from my loved ones doctor as to how he was to be cared for and they said they did not do it that way there. The doctor here said unless his blood sugar is so high that he will have a seizure or so low that he would go into a coma, they would not intervene. For someone who just has memory care issues, this may be a good place for you, but if there are any other health issues it is not.

Briar Glen: a great place for mom
The cost is very expensive, but I think it's a great place for my mom. I didn't want to put her in a nursing home, so this was a great alternative and I feel like it's fine. Family can come and go. You can come by and check her out; I can take her out to eat and I'll pick her up to take her to doctor appointments still. They're very organized and they do a great job with my mom. It got to where I couldn't do it anymore, it was breaking my body down. I'll need back surgery next year, it got to where I couldn't physically or mentally hold out to it anymore. Briar Glen is a great alternative, they're the perfect place.

Our experience
My husband entered Briar Glen on [date removed] we exited the facility on [date removed] after we were told that he was not a good fit for Briar Glen. There was an incident that occurred on the night of the [date removed] in which he became agitated and was taken to the hospital via an ambulance. We were called at 1 AM and informed about it and then on the [date removed] we were told that The administrator had determined from information she learned while on leave that [name removed]could only stay at the facility with 24/7 sitter service. We were told that the administrator would meet us when she returned from our Christmas vacation on [date removed]. We provided round the clock sitter service with me sleeping in the recliner the four nights and our daughters splitting the remainder shifts each day. During the four days we were at the facility, we learned from different staff members that [name removed]was not completely at fault with the incidences that occurred. Unfortunately we didn't spend the first night with him. Our daughter spent the first day with him and he had adjusted well enough that she felt he could spend the night alone. That was a mistake - we should've spent the night with him and several nights after, until we made sure he was adjusted. Another thing we learned is that holiday time, especially Christmas, is a poor time to admit anyone. The administrator was on vacation and the staff was smaller due to people wanting to be off for Christmas. Another thing we learned is to make sure that the person being admitted has ALL of their medication. My husband was admitted from UAB Hospital after being there to have his medication adjusted. He had been placed on a narcotic that that assisted living wasn't able to obtain because they didn't have a written prescription for the gabapentin and the Seroquel. Because of that error he went cold turkey off two narcotics. Therefore, his behavior was more agitated and aggressive than before. It was a very traumatic experience for us and very emotional. We were pleased with his placement and purchased a dorm refrigerator, a twin bed, Bed linens and bath linens, snack foods, etc. We had Spectrum connect the satellite and we went to a lot of trouble and expense, just for four days. I knew the contract was binding whether he was dismissed by the facility or taken home voluntarily by us. I knew that our entry fee of [removed] and our first rent of [removed]was nonrefundable; because I signed the contract. That is a lot of money that could have been used on caregivers in our home. The next month, I received mail from Briar Glen and innocently thought they were refunding some of our money. Instead of any refund, there was a bill for an additional [removed]. I wrote the check for that amount and mailed it in with a letter which stated that I was going to protest this additional charge because I thought it was very unfair and could be considered as price gouging. I did write a letter to JEA Senior Living in Vancouver Washington. The check was not withdrawn from our checking account. My husband was admitted to Briar Glen through the recommendation from UAB that this type of facility would be his least restrictive environment. Unfortunately that didn't work out. I would never recommend Briar Glen for anyone.

My mother stayed at rittenhouse for a year. I was very pleased. They took very good care of her. The lady in the beauty shop, the house keeping staff, the nurses,the craft/entertainment lady, all were great. I could not take care of her by myself anymore. They helped both of us.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Briar Glen Alzheimer's Special Care Center

Briar Glen Alzheimer's Special Care Center offers Studio, 1 Bedroom and Semi-Private. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Briar Glen Alzheimer's Special Care Center 9.1 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
