Briarwood was a Godsend
I was so relieved to be able to place my Mother at Briarwood. I had heard good things from several people. Nursing homes, by nature, are not pleasant places, but Briarwood was the best I saw. It's light and open - I hated the long, lonely hallways so many places had. The staff was kind to my Mother and was very good about calling me with issues and helping me work through any that arose. There are a lot of activities for those that can participate. The level of skill required varies between the activities and the residents are encouraged to get out of their rooms and take part. I rested easier knowing my Mother was at Briarwood.
