    My husband is at Briarwood for short term rehab. The thing that impressed me the most is the kindness and respectfulness shown to the residents by staff. They are consistently patient and responsive. Family members are welcomed, no formal visiting hours. Family are welcome to help themselves in the dining room for any meal. It's a very warm and inviting environment for families and residents. I would caution anyone researching for rehab or long term care, know this is not a hospital. I do not feel this means the care is not there, any facility around will have a much different ratio for staff if you do your homework than an acute setting like a hospital. Coming into this situation with a loved one, you can't help but be anxious and expecting rigid timelines and schedules. Know that if you let this go a bit, and realize this isn't a hospital, your stay at any facility will be easier for you and your loved one. I feel blessed to be at Briarwood and blessed that this is the care that my husband is receiving. If you have ever been to another facility, I know you would feel the difference at Briarwood.

    I cannot say enough about Briarwood. I have 2 family members that go there for rehab whenever needed. They have both been there a few times in the last few years. The important thing is the food is great! You cannot heal without eating! They even let the families dine with their loved ones free of charge! It was clean and I cannot say enough about how caring and kind the nursing staff was. They even let me bring in my uncles dog for visits, I think he cheered up the whole unit!!!

    My uncle was sent to Briarwood for over 6 weeks of rehab. During this time I was a regular visitor. They make you feel so comfortable right when you walk in! I cannot say enough about their rehab staff! And for those who have been to other facilities - you will not believe how good the food is!

    I am currently living at Briarwood. I love it here! The staff are so kind and caring. Years ago my mother broke her hip and i remember being so afraid of picking a place when the hospital gave me the list, I don't remember where she went but I can tell you I wish I knew about this place!!!!! I have never felt so comfortable in a place like this. And every single staff member cares - from housekeeping, to the aides, to the doctors. Gertrude and Regina saved my life here!! Everyone respects each other. Cheryl the social worker is my angel! The staff is always willing to help and always smiling. If you or anyone you know needs rehab or long term care, you should come to Briarwood!
