Gone downhill fast
My mother was one of the first residents of Elegance Berkeley when it opened, and I'm posting this review because I used to tell people how great it was. Unfortunately, there has been complete churn of personnel from the Executive Director to the staff level, replacing a team that was warm, welcoming and communicative with a team that does not communicate with families, engages in questionable billing practices, and does not resolve problems. The caregivers have been great, but most of them have now left. My mother was sometimes left in her room at meal times because there were not enough staff to bring her to the dining room, despite paying handsomely for that service. Advise new families to keep looking elsewhere if they want stable care for their loved ones and a responsive management.

Peaceful, welcoming community
The staff is very caring, but there has been a lot of turnover in the 2 months since my dad moved in. Some improvements could be made in terms of making rooms more accessible for people in wheelchairs. I would recommend Elegance Berkley. It's a beautiful facility and has a nice peaceful atmosphere.

It's a new place and they are open to how things should be done and they are still learning what works for them. As they are not yet full, I expect things to get even better over time.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the California regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about California regulations for Assisted Living.

Frequently Asked Questions
about Elegance Berkeley

Elegance Berkeley offers Studio and 1 Bedroom. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Elegance Berkeley 7.7 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
