The Evergreens Memory Care

The Evergreens at Briarwood is a beautifully-designed 12-resident home for people with memory loss. Each person has a private apartment and bathroom, furnished with their own belongings. The community spaces are open, allowing most people to navigate without assistance.

There are also smaller spaces for gathering and a quiet room where someone may retreat to when the larger community seems overwhelming. A secure outdoor patio is easily accessible for walking and enjoying nature.

People are encouraged to participate in the life of their home as they are able and as they choose. This may include housekeeping, gardening and meal preparation. Meals are a time when staff, residents and sometimes family members eat and socialize together.

Why Evergreens Memory Care?

With memory loss, a person can still enjoy a quality of life that includes friendship, independence, purpose, connection and value. The Evergreens’ program is person-centered, recognizing individual abilities and life stories in a safe environment.


I have been very happy here with the wonderful staff, the congenial atmosphere, the good food and great care. If you come to Briarwood you’ll find old friends and make new ones.

The Best Friends™ Approach

The Evergreens at Briarwood employs the Best Friends™ Approach to Memory Care, an internationally recognized model of care that is designed to create the best possible days for residents. All team members are trained in this comprehensive philosophy, which is grounded in the understanding that relationships are vital in dementia care and require the essential elements of friendship:

Respect  |  Empathy | Support | Trust  | Humor

The Best Friends™ Approach is flexible enough to adapt to each person’s remaining strengths and abilities. Team members work individually with residents to learn their life stories and weave in memories when residents may no longer be able to. We are all friends in the Evergreens and share each other’s life experiences. The Evergreens is home.
