The Preserve at Briarcliffe

A Continuing Catered Retirement Community in Johnston


There are times in life when you know you are at the right place at the right time.  As we usher in a new year, many of us may be asking, are we indeed “at the right place, at the right time?”  For residents of The Preserve at Briarcliffe, the answer to this question can be answered in a single word ~ yes! 

The Preserve at Briarcliffe is a vibrant, active, and supportive independent and assisted living community whose residents enjoy a life of catered amenities, safe and comfortable living quarters, engaging and interesting activities, and ongoing opportunities to build meaningful relationships.  As part of the Briarcliffe campus in Johnston, it is the latest addition to this family of residences to offer the ultimate in senior living.

Akshay Talwar, the founder and director of Briarcliffe and The Preserve at Briarcliffe, admonishes us to embrace the new year and to regard it as a time of “renewal, rebirth and rejuvenation!” If you or a loved one is wondering if you are at the right place at this time in your life, now is the time to visit The Preserve to see how you can change that narrative. Talwar explains “it is time to leave behind feelings of depression, isolation and cold” and to come home to The Preserve to “make new friends” and be “surrounded by warmth, good health, compassion and safety.”

As soon as you cross the threshold from the chilly outdoors and in to the warm and inviting lobby of The Preserve, it feels as though all the cares of the day just slide off your shoulders.  There is an immediate “sense of arrival” ~ a feeling of tranquility and calm. Every detail of this senior living community was intentionally designed to make residents and guests alike feel at home, right from that first impression.

The Preserve at Briarcliffe is composed of sixty-six apartments which were created to meet the specific needs of those who are either completely independent or those who require assistance with such basic needs as medication management or help with simple activities of daily living.  The apartments come in six different floor plans from studio-size to one-bedroom units.  Each apartment has a kitchenette, “European-style” bathroom for safe and easy, barrier-free access, wheelchair-width doors for those with mobility challenges, and large windows that let in plenty of natural light. The two-story building has two elevators, wide hallways bookended by plate-glass windows and lined with sturdy handrails.

Residents of The Preserve enjoy an array of highly personalized amenities and services such as restaurant-style dining, weekly housekeeping, laundry and linen services, state-of-the-art call and monitoring systems, scheduled transportation to appointments and outings, and so much more.

The Preserve at Briarcliffe is located in a serene, wooded area of Johnston on 54 Old Pocasset Road. To arrange for your in-person tour, call 401.944.2450 or visit Briarcliffe online at
