Our new building is currently under construction with an expected completion date of late Winter or early Spring 2021. Upon completion, The Berkeley on Pepperell, situated in the Quinpool District of Halifax, will be a 75-unit apartment building for seniors with included benefits. 12 of those units will be Memory Care suites. The setting for this building is urban perfection; nestled in amongst family homes with a plethora of amenities only a short walk away, including a grocery store, pharmacy, and a wonderful variety of restaurants, coffee shops and retail stores. The inside of the building will have state of the art features and the décor will be warm and inviting yet neutral in tone. As with all other locations, care will be taken to choose striking artwork, and comfortable yet elegant furniture to ensure the atmosphere is warm, inviting and relaxed.
"There are many things I love about living at The Berkeley. It's hard to pick just one but I can give you a good example of what I mean. My first choice would be our monthly Dining In with Gloria night. A small group of residents get together to take part in the preparation of the meal. Hearing the chatter and what not is warm and priceless. Working together works! Following that, we sit down and socialize over a meal we helped to create. Many of us miss our kitchens and The Berkeley certainly fills our 'plates' with opportunities to fulfil what we have missed. These are nights to remember!"

"The thing I missed the most when I came to The Berkeley was my garden. Then I discovered two outdoor patios with raised flower beds. With the assistance of staff, I was able to shop for flowers, plant, weed, water and enjoy them in comfortable chairs (weather permitting)!"
