What Is An Intergenerational Nursing Home?


Click picture to ZOOM

An Intergenerational Nursing Home is an environment created by dedicated staff seeking to meet the needs of all persons needing long term care placement, not just the elderly.  We do not have a unit where we separate the young from the old, nor do we isolate persons with identified diagnosis by placing them on a specific hallway.  Through the Intergenerational Nursing Home concept, we are bringing young and old residents together, inhabiting the same areas, participating in activities together, and sharing their lives in spite of age and disability.  Birchwood Manor is going to great lengths to promote this environment while specializing in the care and needs of the our younger residents.



Social Opportunities For All

The director of the Activity Department is supported by our full staff in playing and having fun with the residents.  Our interdisciplinary approach to activities provides a wide selection and individualized attention.  The programs available for residents are based on their past lifestyles and interests.  This individualized plan of care is seen every day when staff discuss personal interests with residents, take them to activities chosen by the residents, and serve them preferred meals identified by the residents.  Along with the residents that come to every activity and socialize at every opportunity, Birchwood Manor also meets the needs of those residents who prefer more private lives enjoying television, books, or puzzles, or just an occasional visit with family and friends.  Even those residents who do not have the ability to communicate their wishes have their personalized needs met by obtaining information from families and friends as to the resident*s interest and lifestyle.

Not All Fun & Games


For many of our residents, of all ages, their time at Birchwood Manor has a very specific purpose.  With our dedicated therapy program including Physical, Occupational and Speech therapy we are often a stepping stone to another destination.  That destination may be another specialized care facility for younger persons, assisted living or even home.  The most common diagnosis served in our younger population is Traumatic Brain Injury, though we also provide services for persons with other diagnosis and life changing injuries.  We believe that our ability to work so fluidly among our unique population has taught our staff an exceptional skill in adapting to each situation and individual.
