    I help my aunt with her needs in our three family home the best I can. But with work I knew it wouldn't be possible to give her the help she would need after a hip replacement. After touring a couple facilities we chose Briarwood. I can honestly say, and I know she'll agree. We made the best decision for her. The staff treated my aunt as if she were her own. Which isn't hard because shes a wonderful woman. The therapy team got her back up on her feet quicker than we thought possible. This was her first time ever having to go to rehab but when she has to get her other hip done Briarwood will be her 1st choice.

    I've been a patient at Briarwood for a couple weeks now. I like, even though I really didn't want to come I have to say I was surprised. I've enjoyed my time here, the place is clean. The people are nice, cheery and helpful and I had a good time with therapy. I'm going home and I feel like I've done all that I can to be ready. If I ever have to come back to a rehab again(and I hope I don't), I will definitely come back to Briarwood.

    Since arriving at Briarwood I noticed one particular group of people that have been absolutely wonderful but often go unnoticed, that's the CNA's that work on my unit. They have the most difficult work imaginable and yet they do it everyday with the utmost professionalism and in the most pleasant manner. They help each other without being asked even when there is just so much to be done, all to the benefit of the residents. But its surely the warmth, kindness and gentle manner that they bestow upon the residents that makes them stand out. Not to forget the nurses, one and all. The are diligent in the performance of their duties. These young ladies and gentlemen are incredible. Don't know what we would do without them.

    I'm currently a patient at Briarwood Rehab, the staff here is kind and patient. They are always very accommodating when it comes to meals and therapy. But most of all they always make sure you have everything you need and always make you feel at home. If I have to be anywhere, I'm glad its Briarwood. J. Walsh

    My mom spent some time at Briarwood this past summer and although things started off a little rocky we were very happy in the end. The facility is in a great location with great proximity to Beth Israel of Needham. The therapy team did an amazing job of getting my mother back on her feet after her fall. The CNA's were very professional, they do their jobs with pride and patients. My mom's a picky eater, and they made it so that her meals were rarely ever a problem.

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
