Can I take my loved one out of the building?
Yes. Trips off-site with family members are encouraged. We simply ask that you check with your Nurses Station and take all appropriate medication with you for the length of time your loved one will be gone. Residents and guests are required to sign in and out at the reception desk. ****Due to Covid restrictions, we are not allowing family members to take their loved ones out of the community unless medically necessary.

We recognize that each of our residents have individual needs. At Sweetbriar we promote resident independence and provide an environment that encourages this as well as making lasting friendships with other residents.
Should I expect a large Entrance Fee?
Our communities do not require a large “buy in” option. The entrance fee is a one-time fee due at admission, compared to larger CCRC’s, this entrance fee is minimal. Our assistance provides a seamless move in process where the SMDR and/or Case Manager work alongside the responsible parties to obtain the required documentation needed for an admission.
If my loved one needs a higher level of care do they have to move out of their home?
Sweetbriar is an Age in Place Community – residents remain in their home if their care needs increase, unless their needs require memory care.
Can my loved one have a pet?
Yes, we are pet friendly with a one-time pet deposit of $500.
