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.

June is Oral Health Month
Our teeth play a vital role in our lives. They allow us to flash a smile at our friends or chew our favorite meal. It is vital to keep our teeth and gums healthy as issues can increase or worsen with age. June is Oral Health Month; a month to celebrate healthy teeth and make sure you are properly practicing oral health. Regular trips to the dentist are a great way to make sure you are staying on track. It would be detrimental not to keep up with a routine. Here are a few easy tips and reminders to make sure you are taking care of your teeth and gums at home.
- Brushing is key for healthy teeth and gums. This will keep away cavities and prevent gum disease. There are special toothpastes if you are experiencing sensitivity in your teeth- though it is always a good idea to ask your dentist if the problem persists.
- Flossing is another important part of oral health. Food can often get stuck in between teeth. Flossing is an easy way to remove anything built up there. It is also a good way to help prevent gum disease. Mouthwash is another good way to take care of your teeth and gums. It eliminates bacteria and gives us fresh smelling breath.
- Proper cleaning of dentures is also important for both oral and overall health. Be sure to handle your dentures with care. It is necessary to clean your dentures daily and to store them properly when you are not wearing them.
Oral health is important because it can affect our overall health and self-confidence. Be sure to visit your dentist regularly for checkups, as they will be able to assist you with any problems or concerns. More importantly, be sure you are following the steps for good oral health at home. That way you can have healthy teeth and be confident about your smile.

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. 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.
