Overall we've been pretty satisfied with Briar Glen. There's the usual problems I think you come up with anywhere you go - shortage of help, etc. But overall they do a good job with what they have.

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.

This community was fine but both of my loved ones wanted to be in the same community. This community only had memory care and I needed both. If it was just my father he would have been there, but I needed care for my mother also. The tour guide was fantastic.

We toured this community and the tour was very good. They answered all of our questions and were very informative. They were very accommodating and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We did not feel rushed at all and they took their time with our family. I would recommend touring this community

Very Pleased

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.

My Grandmother's stay brief and painful stay

I spoken with Rittenhouse multiple times. Rittenhouse evaluated my grandmother and told me they were able to provide her the care she needed. When touring the facility, they wanted me to pay the $1800 community fee that day to save her a room. There was never a mention of the $1800 community fee and it was not in any discussions beforehand nor in any brochures I reviewed. Although, other facilities did not charge a community fee, we were running out of time in finding my grandmother a place. We agreed to break the community fee down in payments. My grandmother was there from [date removed] to [date removed]. Within that time, my grandmother was taken to the ER by ambulance three times. Within the three visits, she stayed a total of 7+ days in the hospital. After her 3rd stay at the hospital, Rittenhouse declined to take her back due to my grandmother being put on a pureed diet. Rittenhouse still charged until her belongings were removed from the room. Cost to Rittenhouse for the short stay was $7838.

My mother's been thriving since moving here from another facility earlier this year. She has become more social and involved in activities here and her mood is much more upbeat. Our family is glad that we have found Rittenhouse as her home during her later years.

Great Community

We loved Rittenhouse Village when we toured there, and thought it seemed like a great community. However, it is a larger community, and I worried that my loved one would not do as well in such a big place. We decided a smaller community might be a better fit.
