About Braley Care Homes

“Quality care in a home-like environment.”

Our Mission

Braley Care Homes was created in 2005 from a father and son’s passion for quality assisted living in a home-like environment, spawned from their experience in the mental health field.

Braley Care Homes provides professional alzheimer’s, dementia, and memory care in a home-like environment, which is crucial to preserving our residents’ dignity and self-worth. We believe this can best be done in smaller environments, rather than large facilities. The home setting is the environment we choose to care for your loved one. They can surround themselves with pictures and furniture for that complete home feeling. Our intimate, home-like atmosphere allows for individualized care and lasting relationships.

About Us

Braley Care Homes was created from a father and son’s passion for quality Alzheimer’s, dementia, and memory care focused assisted living in a home-like environment, spawned from their experience in the mental health field.

Chris and Dean Braley opened Braley Care Homes on March 29, 2005. Braley Care Homes expanded into Alzheimer’s and Dementia care in 2008. Chris Braley is the owner and administrator of Braley Care Homes and it remains the only free-standing Alzheimer’s Dementia care Facility in West Virginia. Our facility was built with dementia care in mind and is the ideal environment for someone with this disease. It is locked 24 hours per day and has a beautiful outdoor courtyard with a pastoral view, which is secure at all times. Our memory care activities and behavior programming is geared toward meeting each individual’s needs, which helps keep their anxiety level down and reduces the risk of behavior issues.   Chris Braley has a bachelor’s and Master’s degree in social work and is an LICSW (licensed independent clinical social worker). Chris has worked in the mental health field for almost 20 years, and knows that quality care comes best in a homelike environment. Chris shares, “dementia is not only in my professional life, but also in my personal life. My grandmother and father suffered from dementia, so I know the pain the families go through as they watch helplessly as their loved one suffers. I like to think that Braley Care Homes is able to lessen this helpless feeling for families, at least this is my goal.”
