Respite Care (available at The Berkeley Dartmouth and The Berkeley Halifax)

Respite Care is an all-inclusive temporary living arrangement for seniors designed to accommodate those recuperating from an injury or illness, or for those whose support network—family, friends, or neighbours—are away on vacation or simply need a care break. And, it is a perfect opportunity for seniors to experience the benefits of retirement living before making the commitment to move in. Stays can be any length of time, but are charged on a per night basis unless booked for one month or longer. Respite guests enjoy all of the comforts and conveniences of worry-free Berkeley living with added benefits. Included in the cost of a respite stay:

  • Furnished suite with telephone and cable
  • Towels and linens provided
  • In-suite private bathroom
  • Emergency response system
  • 3 meals a day
  • Daily housekeeping
  • Personal laundry service
  • Medication administration
  • Individual care plan
  • Daily personal care
  • Health care staff on duty 24-hours a day
  • Daily recreation and social activities
Often times respite residents join our community permanently – paying us the highest possible compliment.

I just love coming back to see my friends that I have made at The Berkeley Dartmouth. I enjoy all of the activities I get to do and I have lots of fun. But, I really enjoy all the wonderful food and fresh fruit that is around to enjoy. I always enjoy my time here and meeting new people & doing new things.
