Yes, I would like additional information for:
Bradford Houses are memory care cottages specifically designed to provide assistance and supervision to seniors with memory impairment problems who can no longer live safely in their own homes, but do not need all of the medical services offered by our skilled nursing facility. Each Bradford House accommodates 5 residents with their own bedroom and bathroom. Residents are encouraged to participate in a wide-range of activities that are tailored to their specific abilities.
I enjoy all the many varied activities as well as the social interactions with other residents. The staff is so caring. I truly feel at home.
The facility and staff exceeded my expectations. I attribute my rapid recovery from my orthopedic injury to their professional and dedicated services.
Smiles and hugs are given and received that brighten each of our day.
I love my job, the residents and people I work with at Brethren Care. We are one big family and we care about each other.
All of the staff from all shifts and all of the departments have been so friendly, caring, happy, supportive and most of all professional. Throughout the days and nights, they were always happy to meet my needs. Rehabilitation is a very serious process in returning to a productive life and Wasen has played a major role, along with my family, friends and faith.
