A Senior Living Community Like No Other.

Independence. Peace-of-Mind. Plenty of Choices. Pet-friendly.

You’ll experience the warm and vibrant feeling for yourself as you meet staff and residents. Briarwood is so friendly, active, and secure; you’ll wish you had found us sooner. Our continuum of care means that as you age or as your circumstances change, you are able to transition from independent living to assistance in living or Knollwood Nursing Center without ever leaving Briarwood. You’ll find a healthy lifestyle here that encourages independence and enjoying life to its fullest – among friends.

 Briarwood is well-situated to give you easy access to the extraordinary resources in and around Worcester, New England’s second largest city.  While at Briarwood, you’re in a country setting – less than ten minutes away, Worcester has world-class healthcare, educational institutions, and cultural attractions.  Enjoy classical concerts in the perfect acoustics of Mechanics Hall, see a Broadway hit show at the Hanover Theatre or explore centuries of masterpieces at the renowned Worcester Art Museum.  Briarwood residents are often on the go – join the “Lunch Bunch” on their restaurant adventures or take in the scenery of nearby Tower Hill Botanic Garden.  Central Massachusetts has a lively arts scene and with more than 15 area colleges and a rich historical setting, tremendous opportunities for lifelong learning. Whether on campus or off, you will never run out of things to do or places to explore!

My decision to move to Briarwood was perfect for me. I can live independently in my cottage and at the same time enjoy the support of an active and caring community.
