As our population ages, many families are looking at the need for assisted living solutions for parents, loved ones, or themselves. And, as it is with any major life decision, the more information one can gather, the less intimidating the choices become.
At Briarcliffe Manor in Johnston, Rhode Island, we have been helping families get the right level of care for loved ones for over 40 years. We are committed to finding the optimal living solution for each resident — maximizing their independence while providing the care they need to fully enjoy that independence.
We can make this pledge because we have a full range of options offered on our 30-acre campus — what we call our continuum of care. Residents can easily transition from one level of care to another, without upheaval or stress, because we integrate our nursing and support staff into all phases of our operations. We realize that our residents may have times when they need additional care and support — after surgery, a medical procedure another event— and we can modify the level of assistance accordingly.
Also, because our campus features a five-star, award-winning skilled nursing/rehabilitation center and two memory-care assisted living residences, as well as a supportive independent and assisted living residence, residents are not faced with stressful moves and relocations as their needs change.
We are especially excited to welcome residents to our brand new facility, the Preserve — a modern independent and assisted living community, where the care and compassion Briarcliffe is known for is blended with the modern elegance of sixty-six luxury private residences. At The Preserve, residents enjoy beautiful indoor and outdoor living spaces along with access to all our campus amenities, concierge, and personal care services. This creates an ideal lifestyle for those who are able to live independently with just a little help.
For those who need more assistance, particularly those facing memory loss, Briarcliffe tailors the level of care to the individual.
We have one of the most advanced comprehensive and intensive dementia care assisted living programs in all of New England. Our campus features two unique memory care assisted living residences to meet the varying needs and preferences of people living with dementia.
At first glance, Briarcliffe Gardens and the Cottage Residence at Briarcliffe Gardens look and feel like two beautifully appointed homes — which they are — but they are also much more than this.
Because the needs of our residents are diverse and evolving over time, so are the services and care we provide. Some of our residents simply need to be in a safe, secure environment where medications are managed and administered, delicious and nutritious meals are prepared and served, and laundry and housekeeping services are provided. Others require reminders or assistance with personal care (including bathing, dressing, and/or incontinence management). Some have more serious health conditions that require the skills of our Professional Nursing staff and Dietician.
Because of our understanding of the varying needs of those with memory loss challenges, and our experience with the continuing care concept, we can ensure that each person receives the care and support that they need to live their best life both now and in the future.
At Briarcliffe Gardens we maintain a comprehensive Memory Care residence with staffing and programming to care for residents across the full spectrum of memory care conditions. Our trained professional staff includes all housekeeping and comfort services, as well as licensed medical personnel, including registered nurses.
We also have rehabilitative assisted living for those with short-term needs associated with a medical procedure or condition.
We encourage anyone considering the need for assisted living — on a temporary or long-term basis — to call us for a personal tour and consultation. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our commitment to helping all residents live their best life!
