What Are Service Coordinators?
Service Coordinators (SCs) are a valuable resource and an important part of the overall management team. Service Coordinators link residents with services and resources within the community and assist residents in building an informal network of support.
Service Coordinators are an integral part of the management team. By being proactive in supporting residents needs, the ability of residents to maintain lease obligations is increased by addressing the needs and difficulties of residents that can jeopardize tenancy. They promote effective partnerships with property managers and service providers to improve the property and the community at large. The Service Coordinators ability to work with community agencies on behalf of the residents goes a long way in enhancing good will and the overall view of the property within the community.
Service Coordinators work closely with residents and their families, to enhance and improve their lifestyle. Most importantly, Service Coordinators empower residents to make healthy and informed choices to live their most fulfilled lifestyle!

I moved into Briarwood in April, so I've been here four months. I must say that I am extremely happy and feel very lucky to live here. The staff members are super friendly and always eager to listen and respond to requests for maintenance or explanations I might need. And it's not just that they respond--they reach out. When the electricity went off, through no fault of their own, they offered to take us to the movies and were going to buy us supper if it hadn't come back on!- Google

I have been residing at Briarwood for about 8 years. Recently I had some maintenance issues in my apartment that needed attention. The day after I reported them, a maintenance man was here. He was very pleasant, courteous and knowledgeable and fixed all problems in a short period of time. Now I know that if anything comes up (as far as maintenance goes), I will get quality care in a timely manner. Thank you.- Yelp
