Birch Hill Terrace Offers Next Level Senior Independent Living

By Kelly Church

"Independence, transformed" is how Birch Hill Terrace describes life on their Manchester, NH property. The retirement community strives to provide seniors with as much independence as they want, offering different levels of senior living to achieve that. With residences that range in size from one bedroom apartments to cottages and events hosted by the property, living at Birch Hill Terrace is easily adapted for seniors of all activity levels and with all kinds of interests.

"Living at Birch Hill Terrace means that you have both community and peace of mind," Cathleen Toomey, Vice President of Marketing, says. "As a resident, you enjoy an independent lifestyle, free from the worries of home maintenance. You have more free time to meet new friends and enjoy an active life. However, if you need assisted living or memory support in the future, it's as easy as walking down the hall. You are secure in the knowledge that if you need additional care in the future, it's available to you within the same community, provided by people you know."

There are different levels of care offered at Birch Hill Terrace: independent living, assisted living, memory support and nursing care. For residents that start in one level, they are easily transitioned to another level when needed. Residents have security knowing they can stay as long as they need to, because through the Resident Benevolent Fund, they will never be asked to leave, "even if you outlive your assets."

Part of the independent living level of care is the catered living program where residents are able to remain independent in their homes while additional help is provided. Residents can choose from a menu of services and select what they need assistance with. Services include: grocery shopping, transportation scheduling, meal preparation, laundry, assistance with pets and even planning a vacation.

"We do all the things you don't want to do," Toomey says.

Coming up at Birch Hill Terrace is a series of renovations. According to Toomey, the dining rooms, hallways and apartments on the property will be entirely remodeled. The focus will be on using more natural light in combination with contemporary designs and colors. Renovations will start during the summer of 2016 and soon residents will be enjoying an all-new, relaxing environment that reflects the location.

"Set in a wooded area, with easy access to walking trails and a local golf course, and minutes away from the culture of downtown Manchester, Birch Hill offers a serene setting that is close to home," Toomey says.
