Description of The Berkshire in Berkeley, CA

Number of Beds : 90

Move your loved one into The Berkshire, a warm, respect-filled assisted living, independent living, memory care, continuing care, hospice, respite and senior living community, and get the best care available. For residents who cherish their independence but still need a helping hand with some daily activities, the assisted living program at The Berkshire is designed for exactly such a lifestyle. Come experience true freedom, but one with compassionate care always nearby! Assisted living communities have many benefits. Research suggests that seniors who live near their peers and have a variety of social activities feel a greater sense of well-being. With assisted living, you'll enjoy senior-friendly apartments and a busy social calendar. Other services you'll find include around-the-clock supervision and security, access to professional nurses, emergency call systems, help with daily living, and nutritious meals prepared by chefs. These communities typically provide housekeeping, laundry, transportation, and a calendar of social events. When you don't need assistance in in your daily life, but want the benefits and peace of mind of living in a senior-friendly community, choose independent living. Developed for both individuals and couples, these senior communities are also known as retirement villages, 55+ communities, and senior apartments. Residents stay in private apartments or individual homes with a plethora of community amenities, services, and programs tailored just for seniors. You'll have your own private space, so you can bring your favorite furniture, photos, and cookware. You’ll be able to spend time pursuing activities that you enjoy since tasks commonly associated with homeownership will be taken care of. Because independent living communities are intended for older adults who need little or no assistance, most do not offer medical care or supervision. You’ll find many social programs and community amenities, such as gardening, bridge, bingo, fitness programs, book clubs, and planned outings. The staff at The Berkshire has a special place in its collective heart for residents and their families who must deal, day by day, with the daily effects of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Alzheimer’s specialists work hand-in-hand with families, loved ones, and the The Berkshire staff to ensure that residents receive the comprehensive treatment they need. Memory care is different from the care provided in assisted living, requiring a team that is professionally trained in memory care. Residents live in private or semi-private studio homes with twenty-four-hour supervision. Three nutritious meals a day plus snacks are provided, as well as housekeeping and laundry services. Structured activities designed specifically for memory impairment provide cognitive stimulation. Facilities typically have secured areas, such as walking paths and gardens, for residents to access. Other important services include behavioral therapies, continence care, medication management, and assistance with bathing and grooming. Continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) provide a comprehensive care platform, from independent living to assisted living to long-term care options. Reside at The Berkshire and relish an exciting new era, where seniors can enjoy conversation and enjoy the companionship of peers. In this community, assisted living, independent living, memory care, continuing care, hospice, respite and senior living services are provided. The help you'll find at assisted living communities is offered when you need it, with the goal of supplying the support services required to stay as self-sufficient as possible. When seniors don't need assistance in in their daily lives, but want the benefits and peace of mind of living in a senior-friendly community, choose independent living. Memory care necessitates a more direct level of care, memory enhancement programs, and social opportunities, all in a secure, warm setting. Continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) provide an extensive care platform, from independent living to assisted living to long-term care options. At The Berkshire, seniors find the ideal services and amenities they need to live comfortably.
