Description of Berkshire Commons in Reading, PA

Elevate your standard of living and experience excellent assisted living, memory care and respite services at Berkshire Commons. The assisted living program at Berkshire Commons offers the same exciting life enrichment activities and freedom as that of the independent living residents, but seniors in assisted living receive an added layer of care and security. When they need a reliable hand with services like bathing, dressing, and taking medicine properly, it is there for them. Assisted living communities have many benefits. Studies reveal that living near peers and participating in social activities leads to more satisfaction with life. Assisted living offers senior-friendly apartments and a busy social calendar. Communities have additional services that include 24-hour supervision and security, emergency response systems, access to licensed nursing care, chef-prepared meals, and assistance with grooming, dressing, and bathing. Laundry, housekeeping, social programs, and local transportation are typically provided as well. The staff at Berkshire Commons 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 Berkshire Commons 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 residences with twenty-four-hour support. Three healthy 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 enjoy. Behavioral therapies, continence care, medication management, and assistance with bathing and grooming are provided as well. Berkshire Commons helps seniors find the worry-free lifestyle they want. In this community, residents have comprehensive assisted living, memory care and respite services, as well as a friendly, supportive community. Within assisted living communities, you'll find help when you need it, with the goal of supplying the aid required to stay as self-sufficient as possible. Memory care necessitates a more direct level of care, brain games designed for memory enhancement, as well as secure, comfortable living arrangements. At Berkshire Commons, seniors find the ideal services and amenities they need to live comfortably.
