Barclay Friends truly is the best home away from home for Mom.The D’Agostino Family
The Caring Fund gives residents and family members peace of mind knowing that they will not be asked to leave if they run out of financial resources. About 30 percent of residents in skilled nursing care receive Medical Assistance or Medicaid, which does not fully cover the actual cost of care for these residents. Barclay Friends absorbs about $2 million annually in unreimbursed care.
Horticultural Therapy Fund
Barclay Friends is one of the few long-term care facilities in the region to have a comprehensive horticultural therapy program. Established in 2000, our horticultural therapy program offers five outdoor gardens available to residents, families and staff. Our full-time Horticulturalist facilitates numerous activities including floral design, indoor and outdoor gardening, and sensory stimulation. Resident-designed fresh floral arrangements are shared throughout the community. Gardening activities include working in raised beds where residents can plant and tend their own gardens. Residents also have the opportunity to grow vegetables and donate them to the Chester County Food Bank. To help our program flourish, consider a donation today.
Staff Appreciation Fund
The quality care provided by our compassionate staff is at the heart of Barclay Friends. We often hear from residents and families that it is our staff who make being part of the Barclay Friends family a comforting experience. If you would like to express your appreciation to staff, please consider a donation to the Staff Appreciation Fund today.
