Briarwood CCRC - Massachusetts
Briarwood's mission is to enhance the well-being, independence and personal fulfillment of its residents and other seniors by providing excellent housing, health, wellness and supportive services consistent with the caring spirit of the founding churches. Community features and amenities include Cultural and Recreational activities, Special interest classes and events, Security services, Community Dining, Living Rooms, Resident Lounges, Activity Rooms, a Wood Working Shop, Library, Beauty/Barber Shop and Full Fitness Center. Independent Living residents may choose from upscale and spacious one- and two-bedroom apartments, rich with architectural detail, loaded with amenities, and located in unique neighborhood enclaves. In the Assisted Living Program an Individual Service Plan is created for each resident and includes between forty-five minutes to one and one half hours of assistance per day. This assistance includes help with dressing, bathing, medication reminders, personal laundry and linen changes. Each resident has their own apartment with a kitchenette and private bath. The Nursing Center is unlike any post-hospital nursing center in Central Massachusetts. As part of the non-profit, non-denominational Briarwood Continuing Care Retirement Community, Knollwood Nursing Center provides comprehensive short and long-term nursing and rehabilitative care in a welcoming, respectful, patient-focused environment.
