Berkeley Care

The Berkeley is an inviting, socially-engaging community for seniors. We offer an independent lifestyle with as much or as little support as is needed. As our residents age in place, we are able to offer a continuum of care to support their needs with respect and consideration. Our levels of Berkeley Care™ – Independent, Assisted and Memory Care – are designed to provide residents with exactly enough assistance to live life on their own terms.

Independent Living

Apartment living with services in a retirement community. Our residents move in and live without a care: meals are provided, weekly housekeeping/flat linen service is included along with a variety of social activities, exercise classes and shopping excursions. It is all-inclusive living without the worry of household maintenance. In case of sudden illness, health care professionals are on-site 24-hours a day. And, because accidents can happen, an in-suite emergency response system can get you help when you need it.

Assisted Care

Assistance tailored to meet your daily needs, and regular assessments to accommodate any changes. Assistance is available for any amount of support; from occasional illnesses to daily care including help with medication, bathing and dressing. Regular care plan reviews will help us to determine resident needs.
