I was reading reviews on this facility for you negative nellies please leave so that my mother who is on waiting list can have their room. I can not wait for the call. By the way the facility is 100 percent full they have beds closed for renovations . The staff is great if you don't believe me go see. The director of nurses is very polite and African American so how she is kin to administrator who is Caucasian is unknown. So please leave so I can go.
They aren't kin! But they could be, ever heard of marriage!!!!!! Black and white people do marry!!!
Do not go here!!!!! Staff are all family members. Administrator is rude and condescending so is the Director of nursing who is family of the administrator. It runs in the family. They appear good on the surface but pop in sometime to check in sometime to check on your family member to see what is really going on. Please know that you ave rights and your family members have rights. They receive government funding and they have to answer to so one. Don't let them try to intimidate you with their rudeness. Call and report it to Medicaid or Medicare, health department, your congressman. We must protect this vulnerable population of patients. They deserve the best!!!!'
Yep. It's always been this way.

I have never seen anything but caring, hard-working, and highly competent staff at this facility. My sister and I have been in and out of this center on an almost daily basis and we have never seen anything remotely close to what you describe.
Exactly right! The sad part is that they continue to intimidate their staff if they buck the system, they will fire anyone who stands up for patients or other staff members! the administrator, her daughter (assistant administrator), her son (HR) but he is an ok guy, the DON has NO BACKBONE, and the short umpa lumpa that is over medicare is the worst troll of them all! The facility itself and the staff that are actually hands on with the patients are great! New management needed and then the place would be the best in the state!
My sister and I waited on the list for years. We were finally called and all we can say is we love it. Happy mom finally got to a facility who cares about their patients. We were hesitant about moving her from the other home but it was a good move for everyone. Thanks Briarwood CNA, LPN's and the nursing supervisors.
My mother currently lives at Brairwood Nursing and Rehab. The building is beautiful and the care matches. My mother seems happier and adjusted faster than me and my brother thought she would. They have activities daily. The food is very good, very southern just like we all grew up on. The room are clean for the most part, nursing care is 24hrs and their is always someone there to answer my questions rather that's the social worker, the nurses, the medicare coordinator or the DON. The nursing staff are knowledgeable and caring. Call lights are answered within a reasonable time. Im happy with my mothers care at this facility and would have her anywhere else.
Briarwood was more than I could ask for, for my dad. The facility was clean, the CNA staff was caring and tended to his needs. When I left dad at Briarwood I knew he was taken care of. The LPNs' for the most part was knowledgeable, but very busy. The food was great dad told me often he was happy with the food. I for myself ate with my dad at Briarwood on Fridays, which was Fish Friday, and I enjoyed that meal each week without complaints. The housekeeping staff addressed by issues when needed regarding cleaning my dads room. It appeared the housekeepers visited daily. The DON was available to answer questions or concerns if I had any and was very patient with my concerns and worries. The weekend is quite different from the weekday but not necessarily a negative point. Weekends are very laid back but care continued to be satisfactory. My overall experience at Briarwood was a success and I would definitely put my father there long term when needed.
Placed my mother at this facility. At first was worried but the staff made me feel right at home. Hard working nurses, clean facility, mother loves the food. The medical director Dr.Shah is great and her assistant works hard to make sure mothers needs are met. The Director of nurses who is very busy stopped by when i had concerns and addressed the problem to my satisfaction. Overall Briarwood is the only place i would place my loved ones.

The so called director of nursing the young black one Is unprofessionl, and psychotic if your loved one is being mistreated she will tell you, if you are that concerned take your love one home and take care of them yourself she will say you are a troublemaker and she's going to put your love one out she's only a lpn a want-to-be professional
Very clean place but needs an overhaul in administrative staff. Very unprofessional and uncaring, rude. It is very sad because the facility could be good. Staff will bully and threaten to put your family member out if you complain about care. Who does that? They state they are privately owned and could do what they darn well please. That is their exact words. Need more professional and caring nurses. They intimidate their staff and try to intimidate family members. Please think twice before putting your loved ones here, you will reget it.
Agree with previous reviews . Staff are all family members. Administrator is rude and condescending so is the Director of nursing who is family of the administrator. It runs in the family. They appear good on the surface but pop in sometime to check in sometime to check on your family member to see what is really going on. Please know that you ave rights and your family members have rights. They receive government funding and they have to answer to so one. Don't let them try to intimidate you with their rudeness. Call and report it to Medicaid or Medicare, health department, your congressman. We must protect this vulnerable population of patients. They deserve the best!!!!'
An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes:
The staff is horrible and the head nurse in charge of the resident's well being has the worst attitude I've ever experience in this field and there was never a doctor to see my relative when she was sick. They lost clothes all the time even though we told them we would do laundry and they never helped with meals like they were supposed to. overall it is a nice place but the staff is horrible and absolutely did nothing and the we never saw or talked to a dr who was supposed to be treating our relative no matter how much we called or requested it.
