Carefree Living in a Country Setting at Elmcroft of Berwick
Our intimate, cozy senior living home has been part of the friendly Berwick community for nearly two decades. Residents enjoy living along the Susquehanna River, an area known for farming and industry, and attending festivals in the nearby downtown. Our homey atmosphere and friendly staff make residents feel comfortable and provide resources that help them stay independent. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores.
We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our personal care home is pet friendly, so dogs and cats are welcome. Private or shared room options are available. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room or as room service. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And when residents want some peaceful quiet, our beautiful shaded front porch, community gardens, and indoor and outdoor gathering spaces are just right for reading or contemplation.
What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Berwick is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible.
Respectful, Compassionate Care
One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. From tenured management and specially trained caregivers, to professional support personnel, the people who work here really care. Our 24-hour resident care staff, culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.
When our residents need a little extra help throughout the day and night, our personal care staff are specially trained to provide the considerate and compassionate service that helps them thrive. We provide help with day-to-day tasks like incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and dining. And we’re there with support for safe engagement in fun activities like fitness classes, brain fitness programs and trivia contests, on-site live musical entertainment, picnics and barbecues, gardening club, outings, dances and more.
