Assisted living at it’s best
This is a smaller home but has enough long time staff that assist each other as well as each resident. They are very attentive to the resident’s needs, they eat alongside the residents and check on the residents at various times of the day. They love the residents as if they were their own family. When my loved one was in the hospital the nurse remarked as how well the skin was taken care of indicating there was no signs of bedsores or any other breakdown of the skin. For those who can they are to walk around not only inside but also on the grounds. Very happy my love one is here!
The Breckinridge was our second pick for Mom. We decided against it because it was too expensive.
Breckinridge is Fantastic!
We brought my uncle to The Breckinridge in May 2015 from another facility where he had spent less than 4 months and was constantly being "sent out" (meaning he would be sent to a psychiatric hospital for approx 5 days for his meds to be adjusted). This was not good for his overall health as it upset and confused him greatly. He had no idea why the trips to strange places in the middle of the night. His ankles swelled from constant pacing because of the confusion. Finding The Breckinridge was like opening the door to Heaven! He could roam outdoors on pretty days over the three acre backyard which he thought was his own. No alarms would sound as he entered or exited any of the three doors to the beautifully landscaped garden of Eden. They were usually kept together as a group as they watched movies on a big screen, or played games or trivia in the dining room. The meals were downhome southern comfort type and family was welcomed to join their loved one for a meal. In seven months' time my uncle gained 15# and 4" in his pants and I had to go shopping for bigger pants. He thrived at Breckinridge. In the 15 months he spent here never once were we called to come settle him down, or to come because they couldn't manage his behavior. Another huge benefit was the resident doctor who came weekly and kept a check on all the residents. No outside appointments were necessary as lab work, changes in meds were all done in-house. Management and staff were the best and there was very low turnover so residents got to know the staff well and they became family. I can't say enough good about The Breckinridge, only that no other facility can compare to it. Family can visit and leave with confidence that their loved one is being well cared for and treated with love and respect. No worries!
Happy with my choice
My husband has been at The Breckinridge for only a few weeks, but I am already sure that he's in the right place. The meals are wholesome and tasty, the staff friendly and helpful, and the care for residents is top notch. The nurse called me yesterday to let me know that my husband had fallen during the night but was okay. (As a Parkinson's patient, he has had many falls.) I appreciate her letting me know. His medications are given on time. A doctor who keeps an eye on the residents has called to check on certain medicines that he questioned. All of these facts impress me, and I'm so pleased that our son and I decided on The Breckinridge.

They are just awesome!
They are just awesome! I cannot even think of enough words to adequately describe them. Everyone, from the directory, to the maintenance staff, to the care staff, etc all do wonderful. I would highly recommend The Breckinridge to anybody! I think that other places need to take lessons from them. They do a great job caring for Alzheimers patients. The atmosphere is very open, warm, and just all around nice and pleasant. Everything about it is just [email protected]

The Breckinridge is a residential alternative for people in the early to moderate stages of Alzheimer’s disease. It is designed for otherwise healthy people who can no longer safely live at home and who do not require the care of a skilled nursing facility.
