Berkeley Care

The Berkeley is an inviting, socially-engaging retirement 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 Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care – are designed to provide residents with exactly enough assistance to live life on their own terms. Our Respite Care is an all-inclusive temporary solution for those who need assistance on a more short-term basis. Trial Stays in furnished apartments for 1-3 months are also available.
