Berkeley Care

At The Berkeley, we offer a continuum of care to support independence with respect and consideration. Our levels of Berkeley Care™ – Independent, Assisted and Memory Care – are designed to provide you with exactly enough assistance to live your life on your own terms. Our Berkeley Care is available throughout our communities.

Independent Care: Gracious, independent retirement living with services. Move in and live without a care; meals are provided, weekly housekeeping/flat linen service is included, along with a variety of recreational and social activities. Independent Berkeley Care is all-inclusive, where your every need is answered, and you don’t have to shovel your own walk or bother with multiple bills. In case of sudden illness, 24-hour health care staff are available. 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 regularly assessed 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 your needs.
