The Retreat at Berryville
4.4

The staff members so far have been very attentive to any suggestions and feedback we give to them, and the care given to our loved one is excellent. The cleanliness has improved and they do have a lot of activities for the residents to participate in. Our loved one is on the memory care side and we aren't to sure all of what is being offered because she does not participate but we do know she likes the arts and crafts.

Everyone down there has been extremely helpful. Everyone is pleasant. The food is outstanding. They have a lot of activities. But the care is the most important thing. And everyone really takes care of my loved one, a heck of a lot better than I was able to do. They're doing a good job with the Covid situation, checking people in and being on top of everything. I would highly recommend them.
