Terrific Place for My Mom

Berkshire Commons is a great place. They did a terrific job caring for my mom to the end. I would recommend them highly to anybody. She enjoyed the food very much. With activities, they were always doing something and keeping the residents busy - things like bingo, music, various entertainment, coloring. It was a very good experience.

friendly staff nice place and highly recommend

We really like Berkshire Commons, it feels like a hotel. It has more of a homey feel to it and not like your typical nursing home setting. The staff members there are so friendly and the other residents living there and all know the staff by name and really seem happy to see them. They are kept really busy with all the activities and based on the experience we have had so far we would absolutely recommend them to other families.

Great facility

Berkshire Commons is a great facility. What sticks out most to me is the staff, they were all extremely friendly and helpful during my mothers stay here. If I needed this type of care for myself, I would choose to stay here. I would definitely recommend them to other families who are looking.

Such a Caring Place

The staff make taking care of their residents their top priority. They are absolutely amazing! I know when I leave my loved one at the end of the day that they are in great hands. They are always doing fun and entertaining activities. Thank you to the staff for continuing to be there for my family during the pandemic. You are all amazing.

Friendly, interactive, and caring staff. The array of amenities and services offered is extensive and would make any resident happy to be part of a great community of professionals! The attention given to the recent pandemic just illustrates how each of the staff members at Berkshire Commons feels about their residents - they treat each resident like their own family and their care is second to none!

Caring facility

Sounding in once again. My mom passed October coming on two years. We had no choice but to get her everyday nursing care. We visited or took her out almost every day for three years. I wanted no regrets. Staff was mostly stellar. They have a lot on their plates. Maybe family should want to supplement their loved ones care. Same staff the entire three years. That is amazing and says a lot about the facility. I feel she was truly blessed as were we!

I thank god for Berkshire Center. Maybe those who leave reviews should have been involved on an every day basis. The staff was amazing and involved. The crnp is stellar. They were like an extended family. Every once in a while there was a blip but was remedied. Were present unbelievably at her end of life. So thankful for the Berkshire center staff. Not sure about the genesis healthcare corporation.
