The Birches Assisted Living | Partners
The Birches has partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association to help support their mission to eliminate Alzheimer’s Disease through the advancement of research, to improve care through education, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. For more information regarding the Alzheimer’s Association and their mission, events, and research, please visit their website at www.alz.org.
Alzheimer's Foundation of America
Like the Alzheimer’s Association, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America is dedicated to the cause of improving the lives of people with dementia, as well as spearheading and supporting research into prevention and treatment. During visits to The Birches, the Alzheimer’s Foundation has carefully inspected and reviewed our Encore program, and with their assistance, we have earned their coveted Dementia Program of Distinction award as part of their Excellence in Care initiative.
When cash is not immediately available (assets tied up in real estate or CDs or during a waiting period for long-term-care insurance or V.A. Benefits), an interest-only unsecured line of credit may be available. To help families with this option, Birches has joined a lending network. Call Elderlife Financial at 1-800-228-4500 or find out more at www.elderlifefinancial.com.
Elm Plaza Pharmacy (Hinsdale, IL)
Elm Plaza Pharmacy is not just another pharmacy that offers low prices. With personalized attention, professional atmosphere, and quality service, Elm Plaza Pharmacy is our preferred provider. The Birches and Elm have created a strong partnership together throughout many years in order to provide the best customer service for our residents and family members.

LifeBio captures life stories and ensures memories are not lost or forgotten. LifeBio works with The Birches to ensure that residents and their families have the opportunity to record memories and experiences. Please visit www.lifebio.com for more information.
Another approach to gaining liquidity is to use the accumulated cash value in a life insurance policy on either the person who would move into The Birches or insurance on a related party. An approach which would almost always yield more cash is sale of the policy. We can recommend LifeCare Funding Group as a source of information on this. For more information please visit their website at www.lifecarefunding.com.
