About Us


Elderly man working on computerVolunteerism is a cornerstone at Birchwood. Our strong volunteer program helps our community come to life, and offers rewarding opportunities to make a difference in someone’s life. We work to match the activity with the volunteer – this way our volunteers enjoy their time here as much as our residents do having them here!
