    We are starting to move in today at Briarcrest Estates. We are in the independent living part, but they have care plans for my husband to help with the assistance. The place is impressive because it allows you to have a 3-day experience to see if you will like it. This place is actually offering more value for your money than any other place, and they did not ask us to sign a long-term lease. We chose a 1-bedroom apartment, which is quite spacious for two people. The place is well-kept and the apartment we're moving into has been renovated, so we are quite pleased with it.

    Briarcrest is an older place, but I liked the trees; they are very mature, and seemed very shady and very cozy. Many of the rooms have balconies, you don't feel that you're in the city, and you felt like you're in your own little glen. No one greeted us when we walked in, so I was disappointed. We saw the residents eating, and they looked happy.

    Briarcrest Estates was a little old-looking and wasn't up-to-date as much as the other places are, but everything else was good. The residents were eating at the time I was there and everything looked really nice. They had a library, an activity center, a dining area, and an exercise bicycle. The rooms were nice, and the lady that showed me around was really nice.
