Great community, exceeded our expectations

The administration team down to the care givers were all friendly, better then expected and very knowledgeable. They staff were great, and we thought the value for cost was really reasonable. We would definitely recommend this community to others.

Highly Disappointing

Very disappointing for our parent. Poor response times for toileting and other services. They were happy to accept exhorbitant monthly fees so long as our parent was relatively easy for them to care for. Once a bit more involved, they immediately demanded their departure and attempted to transfer ghdm without notification to our parent or our family as to the date and time so that we could be involved in such a traumatic and involved event for our parent. Even worse, they did not transfer all of the belongings and had the nerve to discard some of it. Needless to say, they did not respond to email inquiries once our parent had left. Our parent was simply a commodity to them in our eyes. The facility manager communicates at her convenience and desire, not the family's. It's really a shame.

Review of The Birches At Newtown

Our Birches experience with mom's care was an overall pleasant and extremely satisfying one. Making the correct decision on where to place a loved one in need of personal and/or memory care, can be wrought with tough decisions, questions and doubt. We feel that The Birches, starting with executive director and the staff gave our mom the dedicated care that we were hoping for. The Birches helped us realize that we made the right decision in placing mom. So, on behalf of our family, we wish to offer you and your staff a gigantic THANKS! Again, [name removed], thanks for all your kindness and assistance.

Review of The Birches At Newtown

My husband made The Birches his home a year and a half ago. It was time filled with kindness and loving care on the part of everyone that touched his life. He truly enjoyed the people, the activities, and good food (especially all things chocolate), and the friendliness he experienced while in Daybreak. Thank you for making his life comfortable and happy at The Birches!

Review of The Birches At Newtown

Our family would like to thank you for the love and care you provided to our father for the past several years. He was so happy at The Birches and loved all of the staff so much. He was a "tough old bird", but the twinkle in his eyes an his outgoing personality made him so special to everyone who knew him! We are all so grateful you got to know him, and are equally grateful for the care provided him. He spent the last days of his life exactly where he wanted to be, with people who cared for him.

Review of The Birches At Newtown

Thank you for providing a friendly and safe home for our loved one as she faced the end of her life with PSP. The support your team offered - care based rehab based, activities/entertainments all gave our loved one reasons to anticipate tomorrow. We, her family, appreciated being welcome to participate in special activities (i.e. pie tasting, music evenings, etc.) or when visiting from a far - to come and go as we pleased.

The community was usually very clean and there was no odor ever. Most of the staff was fantastic. The majority of the care giving staff were very compassionate and clearly cared a lot about the residents. The had regular activities available as well. The community is expensive, but it seemed mostly worth it. Having to put my mother into a senior living community was very difficult, but we definitely feel it was the right decision and she thrived here. WE felt confident she was getting good care here.

Mom has an enjoyable life at The Birches !!!

My mother moved into her new suite at The Birches in April, 2019. She had previously lived with my wife and I for 3 years. In those years, Mom would spend the day in her pajamas and watching television. All though we made her meals and dispensed her meds, we saw that her health was declining and her muscles were getting weaker due to lack of activity. Mom had become a fall risk. It was time to look for a safe place for her to eat properly, monitor her meds, introduce physical activity and rebuild a social interaction with people of her age. I had spent several months visiting personal care facilities in the Holland-Newtown area, trying to find just the right one for Mom’s comfort. The only facility I had visited twice and eventually became my choice, was The Birches! I liked the fact that it was a smaller, modern facility with the right amenities to be a good fit for Mom. It was obvious that the whole staff (Director, Marketing, Nursing, Med Techs, Physical Therapy, Activities, Dining, Housekeeping and Receptionist), were professional and genuinely cared for the residents at The Birches!  A special thanks to [name removed], from the Birches Marketing Team, for her professional guidance which led me to the decision to bring Mom to her new home! The transition from my home to her new suite was seamless and she quickly settled in. In no time, Mom was back to her own self, meeting new friends, socializing, attending activities and taking local trips on the Birches shuttle. With daily exercise, Mom got a lot of her strength back.  At age 87, my Mom has an enjoyable life - THANKS TO THE BIRCHES !!!
