    My Dad is a current resident of Birchwood. I visit once a week. Each week I find the room a mess and he has food and other things all over him and the bed. I have to ask each week for them to give him a bath, as they don’t do it. I find take out food in the room, that I left for Dad, the week before, that they haven't thrown it away. The staff have no idea what’s going on EVER, the day shift points fingers at the night shift, the night shift points fingers at the day shift. My family and I called a meeting with their administrators to correct these issues, and things continue to get worse. I've also dismissed Dad's doctor (Which Birchwood recommended) as she was over medicating him to keep him docile (he slept for 3 weeks and now has pneumonia). He has now developed bed sores because he's so "out of it" he can't even get up out of bed. Take your loved ones somewhere else where the staff cares! I am reporting them to the State of Vermont!

    My mother was in Birchwood from Jan 2006 - Oct. 2009 during her stay she first entered the Alzheimer's "Special Needs" unit. Were I thought they were great with her. Later we were asked if we would consider transferring her to "B" wing to a new program they had developed. Biggest mistake of our lifes and my mothers, I went in to find bruises all over her face hands, arms and legs. Her big toe was so infected it was black, I took pictures of her bruises, toes every spot that showed neglect. I opened a report with the Burlington Police Department and state's "Adult Protective Services". The nursing home was charged with neglect but abuses charges "We hard to prove" per the states. After screaming and yelling they finally moved her back to the special needs "A-Wing" were she soon passed away. Our loved ones work so hard all their lives what gives some irrate person the right to touch my mother?
