I visited this facility
Birchwood Rest Home was interesting because it was an estate. I loved the architecture. It had beautiful grounds and it had a little pond in the front. I like that somebody can go outside so they don't have to sit inside their rooms all the time. The inside was very nice and clean. There were a couple of things I didn't like, probably because it's an older facility. It was a good price. They had a nice dining hall with really long tables so it was kind of family style. They had two choices of room, shared or private. In the shared room, the bathroom and shower were in the room, which I liked, but in the private room, the showers were more of a dorm type scenario where you have to go out and take your shower in a shared bathroom. The people seemed like they were fine with it though. The staff was nice and really friendly. The independent living had a couple of cottages, which were attached like little townhouses, but they were separate from the main facility (which was a short walk away). They were all-inclusive, which means they do medical management or help you with getting dressed.
