Trial Stay Suite (Available at The Berkeley Gladstone and The Berkeley Bedford)

For seniors who want to experience retirement living without a long-term commitment, we offer the option of a 1-3 month stay in a fully furnished, well-equipped apartment. Monthly rent includes two meals per day, weekly housekeeping, all social activities, and an on-duty health care professional 24-hours a day. For the sake of convenience during a trial stay, cable and telephone are also included.

Our short-term stay allows an opportunity to experience the many benefits and included services enjoyed by residents of The Berkeley. Offered at 2 locations – Bedford and Gladstone – our 25% off trial stay package gives potential future residents a sense of life at The Berkeley. It is the warm, welcoming community, regular social gatherings and chore-free lifestyle that round out the retirement living experience. A temporary stay has a much greater impact on an individual than a tour, allowing for a full assessment of retirement living.

*In order to qualify for the discount, a trial period must be no less than one full month and no more than 3 months.
