Spotlight: The Birches at Newtown

From senior care to community support: The Birches lends a hand to all

The Birches at Newtown, known for providing award-winning personal care and memory care services, does more than care for seniors.

Beyond the doors, the management team is enthusiastic in their outreach efforts to support local nonprofit organizations and neighbors in need through various fundraisers, food drives, collections, free activities, and other sponsored events.

“Our core philosophy is to provide outstanding care to our residents, but we also need to be a supportive resource to the greater Newtown community,” Executive Director Kim Cahill Yannuzzi said.

Residents are also eager to provide goodwill and often assist in fulfilling these projects. Most recently, residents helped stuff book bags with school supplies. They also included handwritten notes of encouragement.

The school supplies collected during the Stuff the Bus drive at The Birches were donated to local school districts, profoundly impacting students’ learning experiences. 

It is typical of The Birches to engage the public to promote the greater good almost monthly. The community partnered with its in-house podiatrist to collect brand-new socks in December. This essential item that is often taken for granted benefited men, women, and children of the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter and Valley Youth House.

Other events supported by The Birches include caregiver support groups, a sponsored flu clinic at the Village at Buckingham Springs in New Hope, home visits to deliver groceries and other needed items to vulnerable seniors, and free soup given to families to provide a warm meal during the more challenging times of the pandemic.

“The world could use more kindness. If one person can make a difference, imagine what a community can do!” Cahill Yannuzzi noted.
