    The Birches Residential Care has always been family-owned and -occupied, which assures an exceptional commitment to customer service and a high level of owner involvement with residents and families. We designed and remodeled our large family home specifically for its new purpose: The environment is warm, bright, and sunlit, with no obstacles to safety; it offers places to gather and spaces to spend quiet reflective time. The garden has a park-like quality. Every week we have luncheons out at a restaurant of our residents' choosing every week, a take-out night, a happy hour. We offer scheduled manicures and pedicures, and hair styling. We provide private transportation and full escort service and accompaniment to all medical/dental/therapeutic appointments. We are located close to shopping and many conveniences. We have Paramedical support within 3 minutes from home, and ready access to the world-famous Stanford Hospital & Clinics and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, among others. We soon plan to offer the regular services of a personal trainer.
