A Note from Our President

Dear Friends,

As President and CEO of Beechwood Continuing Care, I am proud to be part of an organization that has set a standard of excellence in senior care throughout its history and look forward to continue its legacy.

Beechwood Continuing Care has been an integral part of WNY for over 50 years and has worked diligently to build an extraordinary reputation for placing the needs of its residents above all else.

As a not-for-profit faith-based organization, resident quality of life and dignity is always our first and foremost consideration. We are committed to preserve their independence, freedom of choice, joy, contentment and sense of purpose.

As a recognized leader in innovative senior care in WNY, Beechwood was the first to introduce culture changing person-centered care in its assisted living and skilled nursing communities. We call it “Welcome Home!”

We invite you to learn more about Beechwood Continuing Care and all it has to offer to seniors in our community.

Sincerely,
Daniel P. O’Neill
President & CEO

Nuestro Continuum 


Beechwood Continuing Care was first established through the vision of a group of individuals and Methodist ministers. They recognized there was a need for a not-for-profit faith-based community that served the physical, social and spiritual needs of seniors in WNY. Upon the purchase of a parcel of 24 acres of land in Getzville, the Beechwood Residence opened its doors in 1964. Less than ten years later, the Beechwood Nursing Home admitted its first residents. (In 2006, both became known collectively as the Beechwood Homes.) 

Today, the Beechwood Homes has the distinction of being the first nursing home in WNY to transition from a traditional institutional model to a person-centered care model, complete with households and neighborhoods. We call our person-centered initiative – “Welcome Home.”

Beechwood was the first nursing home in Erie County to partner with Hospice Buffalo to offer hospice support to our residents. Recently, we have partnered with Hospice Buffalo to create a designated hospice unit for those individuals in Erie County who need skilled nursing hospice care.


In 1977, the Blocher Homes, an assisted living facility with a similar mission based history, joined the Beechwood family. The Blocher Homes was established in 1904. Its noble lineage includes founder, John Blocher, a wealthy industrialist. He established the Blocher Homes to ensure that aging men, and women, who could no longer live on their own, would have a true “home” where caring support was available. John Blocher was well known for his philanthropic endeavors and love for family, as well as the famous memorial monument located in Forest Lawn Cemetery, built in memory of his beloved son.


Noting a growing need for short-term rehabilitation within the senior community, Wesley Rehabilitation Center opened its doors in 1996. Beechwood, known for its exceptional physical therapy professionals, built a state of the art rehab center. Located within the Beechwood Homes in a separate wing, Wesley offers 27 private rooms and its own private dining room. Over 800 patients of all ages are treated annually, with the majority returning to their homes in the community.


Opened in 2000, Asbury Pointe Independent Retirement Community boasts award winning design in senior living. With 110 apartments, Asbury offers a luxurious yet neighborly lifestyle. Known for its extraordinary decor and attention to personal service, it is the perfect alternative for seniors who no longer want the demands of owning a home and instead want the freedom and security of retirement community living. As part of the Beechwood continuum, residents have priority admission into our other communities.
Community Partner

Beechwood has been the recipient of numerous awards, commendations and accreditations. These include the Amherst Chamber of Commerce Commitment to Excellence Award in Health and Health Services and the Better Business Bureau's prestigious Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics. Beechwood has partnered with Hospice Buffalo to provide in-patient care in a “household,” allowing for better treatment for each individual according to their needs.

Those associated with Beechwood Continuing Care take pride in past accomplishments, and the Homes are committed to creatively meeting the needs of its residents and the community.

¿Qué es Bienvenido a casa?

En 2002, BCC dio los primeros pasos para iniciar un programa audaz y nuevo para posicionar a nuestra organización para el cambio cultural y avanzar en la eliminación del entorno institucional de nuestras comunidades de hogares de ancianos y de vida asistida. Este esfuerzo continuo está orientado a producir un impacto positivo y significativo en la calidad de vida de nuestros residentes y en su salud.

¡Welcome Home incorpora ideas de muchos modelos de atención centrada en la persona en todo el país, así como algunas ideas nuevas propias!

Welcome Home incluye una transformación tanto física como filosófica. Los residentes de Blocher Homes y Beechwood disfrutan de una cena abierta donde eligen su hora de la comida y dónde se sientan. En Beechwood Homes, hemos eliminado las estaciones de enfermería y los pasillos largos y los reemplazamos con hogares donde 12-18 residentes comparten una cocina, un comedor y una sala de estar con chimenea. Cada hogar es autónomo y funciona en función de los deseos de los residentes y lo lleva a cabo su equipo de hogar. Además, los residentes y sus familias disfrutan de los centros del vecindario que incluyen un restaurante, una biblioteca / centro multimedia y centros de entretenimiento, así como un hermoso campus.

Y lo más importante es nuestro personal. La atención centrada en la persona no puede tener éxito sin el compromiso de su personal ... y nuestro personal es extraordinario. Welcome Home ha revigorizado a nuestro personal y les ha proporcionado una filosofía de cuidado que realmente es impulsada por los residentes y basada en el desarrollo de relaciones sólidas entre ellos. ¡A través de una amplia educación y capacitación en el enfoque de cuidado dirigido por el equipo, nuestro personal a menudo puede anticipar las necesidades de nuestros residentes antes de que ellos mismos lo sepan!
