I have been a resident at The Barrington for several years and I am a widow. I am happy here; never lonely, very safe, with friends and a caring staff.
Assisted Living Week Back
National Assisted Living Week was established in 1995 to celebrate the role assisted living communities play in senior care and the relationships that form between caregivers and residents due to their time spent together. This year National Assisted Living week is Sunday, September 10th through Saturday September 16, 2017. The theme for this year is Family is Forever and was inspired by this quote from Maya Angelou:
“Family isn’t always blood, it’s the people in your life who want you in theirs: the ones who accept you for who you are, the ones who would do anything to see you smile and love you no matter what.”
This week is the perfect time to celebrate the beautiful relationship that forms between staff and residents at Assisted Living communities. It truly takes a special person to be a caregiver. You have a huge impact on the people around you. You not only take care of residents, but you become their family, forming bonds that cannot be broken. Someone that they not only rely on, but enjoy spending time with.
The caregivers and staff at Assisted Living communities become residents’ second family. They are the eyes and ears that observe things about their residents and relay these observations to their family members. They are the ones who notice if there is a change in a resident’s appetite or health. Caregiving staff works as a team to provide the best care to residents, providing them with the love and respect a family member would. We are very thankful to all of the awesome caregivers that are dedicated to caring for our residents every single day.
National Assisted Living Week is also to celebrate our wonderful residents. It is an honor to not only care for you, but to know you and be part of your life. Caregivers, be sure to express your thanks and appreciation for all the assisted living residents you care for.
Spend National Assisted Living week enjoying time spent together; caregivers and residents alike.
The first time I walked into the Barrington I had a very warm feeling. The entire staff is very caring and helpful. I enjoy all the activities and social events that we have.

I have made some wonderful friends with the residents and staff. The Barrington is a great place to live.
I came to the Barrington in 2009; this place saved my life. The room my daughter picked out for me overlooks the school and the children who go there. The trees and the surrounding grounds are beautiful. I love to walk outdoors and meditate. I also enjoy our trips to the beaches and parks. I am on the welcoming committee, serve at happy hour, and I go with the Marketing Team to do outreach. This is my home and the staff is my family.
The Barrington in Largo, FL, was recommended to us by A Place for Mom as an option for my parents. My wife and I visited The Barrington for a tour. We were greeted by Sherrie (Regional Supervisor, Tarantino Properties) for our visit. Sherrie was extremely knowledgeable & professional; a great representative for The Barrington. We also met Linda (Nurse Administrator) in order to describe the care needs required for my father. Linda was very understanding of my Dad’s needs and took the time to formulate a care plan for my father. Linda was extremely helpful with a great sense of ...Show More
I love it here. This place is just like next to heaven. It's as close as you can get.
I love it! Katie and Amber are so helpful and keep me involved. Everyone is so kind here. I love bingo. We have such sweet, sweet people working here. The food is outstanding too!
I love it here. Katie and Amber are the reason I love it here. You both are exactly why I love every day here.
There are just so many activities here that it's hard to choose what to do. I love the poker on Thursday nights. It's been an easy transition for me.
The people that work here are really nice and attentive. I like playing Scrabble and staying busy. Our walking club is really fun. I love being outside. Our walkway around the building is so nice. I always like when they come in and help me get ready for my day in the morning. The Parkinson's program is so nice to get my day started too.
I like the activities here. That's my favorite part. We painted bird houses and now they're in the courtyard. I love the entertainment here. The music is from the right era! I am really happy.
