At Briar Glen Alzheimer's Special Care Center in Hoover, Alabama, a suburb of Birmingham, we understand that those living with memory loss are still able to lead fulfilling lives. We work diligently every day to ensure that those in our care are able to experience love, laughter, comfort and security.
The staff at Briar Glen incorporates each resident’s life story into their personalized daily care plan. Utilizing our distinctive Meaningful Moments approach, our team provides a warm and meaningful assisted living environment that includes family and friends. We welcome and encourage you to join us in the many activities we offer at Briar Glen Alzheimer’s Special Care Center.
Our exclusive Meaningful Moments training enables our caring and highly trained staff to learn about our memory care residents' lives before the effects of dementia started to develop. These life-long preferences are then built into each resident’s daily life to provide a sense of the familiar and create meaning in each day.
We understand the unique challenge you face when selecting senior care for yourself or a loved one. Let us help by putting your mind at ease. We treat all of our residents with the same compassionate care, whether the individual is in need of assistance with activities of daily living or requires specialized attention due to Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia-related illness.
Our exclusive Meaningful Moments program recognizes that those living with memory loss are still able to lead productive and enjoyable lives. Our philosophy of care is a simple one: honoring each resident’s unique journey and caring for them with dignity and respect.
Meaningful Moments is built around the premise that our capacity to enjoy life remains intact, even when memories fade. The foundation of this program is learning all we can about our residents – from their passions to what brings them joy. From this foundation, we create an individualized plan of care that is centered around their personal desires, likes, needs and interests.
Our holistic approach to care includes developing partnerships with family members and other health care providers to ensure we meet our residents’ physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual needs. We create an environment that residents and family members alike are happy to call home.
For those seniors in need of rehabilitation after an injury or caregivers who need a break from the demands of caring for a loved one, the respite services of Briar Glen are beyond compare.
