Briarcrest Estates is the closest one to us. It's a nice place. They serve three meals a day, and the room looked nice. She looked at a one-bedroom with a little outside balcony and nice, large, sleeping area. It's a great facility. I've eaten there, and there's nothing wrong with the food. It's in a very nice area with a lot of stores, restaurants, and easy access to the highway. They provide transportation and have outings. I highly recommend it.

Briarcrest Estates had a really warm and friendly atmosphere. We all felt very comfortable there. The staff members were excellent. It was easy to access. The grounds were beautiful, well kept, and very green. They had a game room that was really fun with games like a shuffleboard and poker. The fitness facilities weren't very robust, which would be my only complaint. The room didn't have a lot of things or choices. It was very reasonably priced and one of the most affordable. The menu looked really good.

Briarcrest Estates was very nice and clean. The apartments were good with nice views on their balconies. Dad would have liked it there. The staff was very pleasant. Our concern was that they had no nurse on staff. We would have had to pay for someone to come in and take a look at Dad.

The staff in Briarcrest Estates were friendly. The studio apartments were small, but for the same price the 1-bedroom apartments were huge, although much older, and they needed some updating, which they're working on.

I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility

I'm here right now at Briarcrest Estates and I love it. It's very clean,comfortabel, and decorated right now for Christmas decorations. Everyone has been very friendly and welcoming. The staff is great, polite, kind, and wanting to please me and get whatever it is that I need. I can't say anything bad. It's great. I've been here for two weeks now. They have tons of stuff going on every single day, sometimes two to three things. I made a Christmas wreath for my door and decorated some ornaments for my Christmas tree. They have bingo games and poker. The food is not perfect, but it's pretty good.

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.
