About Us

While SweetBriar Assisted Living is located in Dunbar, we draw residents from all over the Kanawha Valley and further. Only minutes from downtown Charleston, our assisted living residence and activities are designed to accommodate many individuals' lifestyles and needs. We offer deluxe private and semi-private rooms with full private baths, studio apartments, and one-bedroom apartments.

Our unique services allow residents to be comfortable with our staff. We strive to make you feel at home in your new environment. The staff at SweetBriar has been fully trained and have undergone criminal background checks and pre-employment and random drug screenings. We ensure the safety, care and comfort of all of our residents.

One of the biggest benefits for SweetBriar Assisted Living is we are not a chain of unknown faces. SweetBriar is locally owned and managed with a Board of Directors who has the same level of concern for resident care and safety as those working with your loved ones on a daily basis.

SweetBriar Assisted Living is licensed by West Virginia Department of Health and Human Services and offers both secure outdoor courtyards and a Secure Wing for those who are at risk for wandering off.

Whether you need full time care for your loved one or need a more temporary solution when you’re called away for business, vacation or just need a break, SweetBriar wants you to take care of yourself, the caregiver, as your health is just as important as your loved ones. Please contact us or stop by for more information.


SweetBriar Assisted Living FAQ

Tell me a little about SweetBriar
We are a private pay, locally owned assisted living community that is conveniently located in Dunbar. SweetBriar has been a pillar in the community since 1992. We help seniors live as independently as possible by providing nutritious appealing meals, engaging activities, and around the clock nursing staff. We provide a broad spectrum of care for our residents. Some are quite independent, while others have their needs better met on our newly remodeled Secure Wing.

What is the Secure Wing?
The Secure Wing is an area of our community that specializes in providing care for residents with advanced stages of dementia. Our staff is specially trained to provide care for our residents that wander or have memory issues. We have more staff on that wing to meet all of their medical, social, and physical needs. The wing has 2 outdoor spaces for the residents to enjoy, a private dining room, and a large comfortable living room.

What activities do you have for the residents?
It’s a very exciting week for us. We have a big event daily. We had an ice cream social to celebrate Grandparent’s Day on Sunday, have had various afternoon concerts, and even have a car show planned. The public is welcome to join us for any of our celebrations. For a detailed list please visit our website.

What’s the best way to contact you?
People can stop in anytime. We would be happy to give them a tour of our community. If they would like to schedule a tour they can call us at 304-744-7400.
