I did not like Elmcroft of Berwick at all. It was closed in, had stale air, and was depressing. I only talked to a lady in the office, and the people who lived there did not look very thrilled to be there at all. The other place I saw was open and airy, and this place was claustrophobic with too many hallways.

After looking around at other places with my parents for a place for my grandmother to stay, I was shocked at some of the other locations in the area: dirty, boring and no one seemed to care. I was so grateful when my family chose Elmcroft of Berwick. Granny was always independent but just couldn't take care of herself any longer and it was beginning to be tough on my parents. My grandmother had her own personal apartment that was well appointed and far exceeded anything any of the other places had. She was able to be cared for without making her feel like she couldn't take care of herself. What I think my grandmother appreciated most was the fact that this was a place where she made friends. She was always doing something at Elmcroft. It made all the difference to us that she was able to have a social life as opposed to living in a hospital room with poor care.

My aunt was having difficulty living alone after her husband passed away. The family made a group decision to put her into a nursing home. To make sure she got the best care, we all, personally looked at every nursing home in the area. Elmcroft of Berwick was a cut above the rest, enough for us to put her there, even though there is some distance between us and her. We visit often, the workers are very nice, and seem to actually enjoy taking care of the residents. I have put much time into going to other nursing homes for community service, and I can safely say that Elmcroft is by far the best of the bunch. One thing that I noticed, is that my aunt really didn't mind being in a nursing home, she even seemed to enjoy it, the residents were extremely friendly, and within the month she has been there, she has met everybody. It brings my family great comfort knowing that she is in good hands.
