Welcome to Birchwood Senior Living

Birchwood Senior Living is located in the friendly town of Forest Lake, Minnesota. Only a block from the beautiful and serene Forest Lake, Birchwood Senior Living is also conveniently located just blocks from the Forest Lake downtown area.

At Birchwood Senior Living, we serve seniors and their families by encouraging them to thrive – by offering a wide variety of wellness-focused services and activities while empowering them to live as independently as possible.

Two buildings make up Birchwood Senior Living; each offering specialized living options and a strong focus on customer service. The campus is designed so that all buildings are interconnected to create a vibrant community atmosphere.

Walk through the doors of Birchwood Senior Living and discover a home where staff members offer a helping hand, words of encouragement, bright smiles, and strong shoulders. Our community of residents, families, staff and volunteers care and share like family. From the delicious home-style meals served in our dining room to the quality of care we provide, we take pride in what we do. In addition, we are a strong supporter of the Forest Lake area and strive to give back whenever we can.

The warm glow of fireplaces and comfortable furnishings greet you as you enter the Birchwood Arbors creating homelike environment that encourages socializing and making friends. The inviting in-house café, beauty salon and barber shop, piano room, fireside room, chapel, library and outdoor patio offer a variety of environments that enhance each resident's life. Comfort and convenience extend to each private residence at The Arbors. All apartments feature carpeted living rooms and bedrooms, a walk-in closet, and individually controlled temperature settings.

Our approach to wellness influences everything we do at Birchwood Senior Living. Instead of only focusing on physical wellness, we believe that all dimensions of a person are important – therefore we create activities and programs that can enhance the social, intellectual, spiritual, vocational, emotional, and physical aspects of our residents. We also are active in the Forest Lake community through events and activities put on by the Forest Lake Chamber of Commerce and other local organizations.

Unlike some senior living communities that require large upfront payments, Birchwood Arbors offers flexibility with month-to-month leases. Birchwood Health Care Center is Medicare and Medicaid certified, and we accept most insurance plans.

We invite you to take a tour today and see why our residents and families love Birchwood!
