    All the employees deserve a big WOW !!! I couldn't begin to recall everyone's name, but I will say they are all committed to your care, always a wonderful smile, great sense of humor, passionate about what they do, a real family feel to the facility. Everyone was always in a good mood and more than happy to meet any reasonable request as long as it was good for your treatment plan. I want to thank each and everyone from operations, administrative, food service, environmental services, Housekeeping, EVERYONE for their commitment to my well-being and assuring my care and needs were being met. Everyone works so well together with a team spirit. That's what Briarwood is really about!!! Paul Van Wart

    My mother was sent to Briarwood for rehabilitation of a broken hip. The therapists were very motivating getting her where she needed to be. She now is living in the long term care unit. The nursing staff is attentive and compassionate and genuinely care for their residents.

    We had a very disheartening experience at Briarwood with my father. The clear cut feeling we got from the majority of the staff from nurses to aides to physical therapists was one of annoyance that they had to take care of my dad. He did require extra assistance as he was very immobile but we had met with Amanda before he was transferred there and described his status and needs very clearly and we were reassured that it would not be a problem. However, it was a huge problem such that we arrived one afternoon to find him sitting in his wheelchair in the hallway with a puddle of urine under his chair as they had not assisted him to the bathroom all day. On a positive note, the kitchen staff extremely helpful and attentive. There were two outstanding aides who actually seemed to care as well as some of the PT staff and perhaps 1-2 nurses. I would not recommend Briarwood for anyone who needs anything other than very brief, routine, straightforward PT.

    Our experience at Briarwood Rehabilitation was mostly positive. The facility is very homey. Amanda in marketing, Kara in nursing, Sasha and Danielle in Physical Therapy, and Yva and the young men helping in the dining room were all exceptional. The food offered is very appropriate for older residents. They often offer extra choices that are made easier to chew for people who need that help. The staff is very attentive and kind to the residents. One key to having a good experience is to stay involved with your loved one. Family is welcomed and treated well. The memory care unit should have less residents, because these people need more care and a better staff to patient ratio. People who need memory care, but are higher functioning, should be brought out to enjoy activites with other residents. They need to be escorted, so a better staff to patient ratio, would help achieve this and would be kind to those people who could benefit by being included outside that unit.
