The Birches at Harleysville Assisted Living.

During the past two years, my wife and I assisted a cousin with finding an assisted living apartment where she would receive medical assistance with daily activities and with several minor medical procedures. We selected The Birches of Harleysville after evaluating other assisted living facilities in Montgomery County. My cousin and I found a caring, supportive staff that evaluated her capabilities and developed a care plan to support her activities of daily life. [name removed] enjoyed her apartment which provided her with a bright and airy atmosphere yet allowed her to be medically supervised. The staff assisted with her transition and encouraged her involvement in community activities. We were fortunate to find this caring and medically competent facility to care for my cousin.

Pleased!

I would definitely recommend it. My sister likes being with other people her age and getting to spend time with others playing games, watching movies and going on trips in the bus to lunch or just taking a scenic ride. It is warm, bright and cheery inside.

My review of The Birches at Harleysville

This facility has been pretty good so far. The staff is very friendly. The food seems to be good, good quality and variety. My loved one has eaten in the dining room a few times and it's really nice and clean. She mostly has her meals delivered to her room, though. I will say, Communication with the family could improve. Trying to get medical information/updates on my loved one is pretty difficult. If you need information, you have to seek it. They're pretty good about responding when I call, but they don't ever call me or reach out to me unless I've reached out to them first. Overall, I would recommend this facility to family and friends.

Beautiful Homelike Atomsphere

Wonderful senior living community, the best in the area! The staff put together wonderful events for the residents and for the community as well. The building feels like you are very warm and welcoming, and the staff are all very friendly. The Executive Director gave me a tour and he was also very knowledgeable and knew all the residents and staff by their first names.

I toured here as we are looking for a place for my mother to move. From the moment I walked in I felt the warmth and friendliness of the place. Everyone was smiling and said hello. We deposited and can't wait for my mom to move in and enjoy her days there.

We Highly recommend The Birches to Our Friends and Family!

My mom has been at The Birches for a year now and honestly every time I speak to her, she tells me how much she loves it there. All the staff goes above and beyond to meet mom’s not only her physical but emotional needs. The residences are so kind. At this point we feel like they are our extended family.

Great events for Community and residents!

I have been to a couple of The Birches events for the community. They have been wonderful. We always have such a great time and you can tell the residents really enjoy it as well. The staff is always so pleasant and the smiles on the faces of the residents says it all. When I am in need of a community for my family members I will be sure to keep them in mind. Thank you for all you do.
