If you’re looking to move into an assisted living community, it pays to do your research. There are several assisted living services and amenities that you’ll need to consider because you need a community that will fit your unique needs. At Briarwood, we aim to help each of our residents feel comfortable and safe with our exceptional amenities. So what services are usually included in assisted living at Briarwood?
What Services are Usually Included in Assisted Living at Briarwood?
Trick question! While Briarwood offers a wide array of services to our residents, our care is customized to the needs of each resident. There are no “usual” services because there’s no one-size-fits-all care plan!
When seniors come to live at Briarwood, our staff takes the time to develop an Individual Service Plan. This plan is designed to meet your unique needs, and it includes daily services that usually take around 45 minutes to an hour and a half per day. These services include things such as help bathing, grooming, dressing, or medication reminders—depending on what type of assistance you will need.
And regardless of the level of support you require, all residents in our assistance in living program benefit from weekly housekeeping and linen services, as well as maintenance services in their apartments and on the grounds.
What Are Briarwood Assisted Living Apartments Like?
Our goal is to provide you with a safe, supportive environment without taking away your independence. Briarwood has three different sizes of assisted living apartments, but they all come with the same basic amenities, including:
- A small kitchenette, ideal for preparing quick meals
- A private bathroom with safety features like shower bars
- An individual thermostat for your comfort
- Privacy in a place to call your own!
Have Meals in the Dining Room
While you are always free to eat in your own apartment, Briarwood’s restaurant-style dining room serves wonderful meals you wouldn’t want to miss! Meals are offered three times a day, but your Individual Service Plan will specify whether you receive two or three meals each day. This is based solely on your needs; will you be eating three full meals, or would you prefer to eat breakfast in your kitchenette?
No matter how many meals you attend daily, our dining room is sure to keep you coming back for more. Our menu changes weekly, so there will always be something new to try. Meals are nutritious and healthy—but even more importantly, they’re delicious!
Meals in the dining room are also a good opportunity to socialize with fellow residents. Pull up a chair and get to know your neighbors! You might be surprised how easy it is to form lifelong friendships over a delicious meal.
Take Part in Your Community
Briarwood isn’t just a place for seniors to live, it’s a community where seniors thrive!
There is always something happening at Briarwood. Whether you’re taking part in monthly events such as “Manicures, Music & Chat” or “Tabletop Bowling,” taking advantage of our fitness center, or attending community movie screenings or dances, you’ll find that you always have something to do—and you’ll be doing it with your friends and neighbors.
Briarwood strives to create a warm and welcoming community. In addition to events and other goings-on in the community, our staff aims to form caring relationships with each of the residents, helping them to feel right at home.
