shortterm-stays1Rather than paying for a hospital stay, or other longer-term options, for a loved one, the Birchwood House offers clients, guests and/or family members a secure home-like environment with specially trained caregivers and skilled nursing services. A day in the hospital can cost up to $1,400 while a stay at the Birchwood House is only $300/day.

Short-term residents enjoy all of the same services, amenities, and care as our long-term residents. The benefit to the resident and their family is knowing that the home and the staff, are able to offer consistently high standards, are well trained and have the support and resources of a local Medicare-certified family owned home health care company.

Our weekly (7 day) short-term stay guests receive:

  • Elegantly furnished bedroom with access to all common areas
  • 24-hour nurse on-call
  • Dedicated home health aide support for activities of daily living
  • Three nutritious meals plus snacks are prepared daily
  • Medication management
  • Access to more comprehensive private duty nursing and/or rehabilitation servicesimages

Minimum short-term stays are between seven (7) days and up to thirty (30) days based on room availability. Advance payment for first and succeeding seven day stays is required. Payment methods accepted are all major credit cards or personal checks.

Birchwood short-term stays offer care that feels just like home which means you can expect comfortable and clean accommodations, comfortable lounge and dining room facilities and home cooked food. At the Birchwood House we go out of our way to ensure we are meeting individual needs.
