I visited this facility

Berkshire Castleton was definitely more of an assisted living and felt more like a hospital. But it did not seem like a bad place. The people that were living there seemed happy, but it was definitely more of hospital type of facility. It did not fit our needs. The quality of facility itself, they could use some fresh paint. We never got to see their independent living, because they didn't have any availability in their independent living facility.

My wife and I have settled on Berkshire of Castleton. Our stay here is very good. I enjoyed it very much. The staff is excellent. The residents are friendly. The place is very homey. The facility is quite good even though it is an older place. It is rather well taken care of. My wife and I enjoy this place very much.

My brother is now staying in Berkshire and he has been there for two months now. The room that he has is smaller than what he used to have, but let's face it, when you moved into a residential setting like that, downsizing is a necessity. Food is good. Their dining room is very nice. My brother was surprised of the number of activities that were there and he quickly got involved in them. He plays cards and joins in singing. They bring in pianists and singers and they have programs like that. He has told me about three or four different programs that he enjoyed since moving in this facility. Ever since he has been there, they did make some improvements. They have made their sidewalk wider and put in handicapped ramp. This was in the back where they have parking space for their clients. My brother has motorized wheelchair that he drives out to his vehicle and so these improvements would prove beneficial for him.

I visited this facility

It was very nice and large facility. The staff was nice and informative. The rooms and the dining room were spacious. But it was too far to where I wanted my mom to be.

My wife's uncle was at Berkshire of Castleton. At first, he was in the independent living but then, he moved to the assisted living section. The assisted living part of the facility was small which was good. There were about 21 suites so the care they got was very good. Nurses were on duty round the clock. He could eat in the dining area of the independent living since he had friends there or in the assisted living dining area also. There were field trips and movies also. He made a lot of friends and he was very happy. We were pleased with the outcome.

Upon entering the Berkshire of Castleton, I was greeted by sliding doors and welcoming and informative staff. The staff at the front desk knew the residents by name and room number. The residents seem to have an active community at the facility. There were games going on in a game room, and residents were milling around in a room filled with couches and entertainment. The hallways have been remodeled recently and are kept clear of trash and dirt. The facility appeared very clean and the residents I encountered all seemed to be in good spirits. The residents all receive papers about what food will be offered at each meal. Whenever I have eaten at the facility, I have always enjoyed the food and the options made available to me. There is a shuttle that takes residents to area businesses to run errands each week, and even a church service on Sunday mornings for residents. Overall the Berkshire of Castleton seemed to me to be a very well-run assisted living facility, and one I would recommend to others.

My uncle is living in Berkshire of Castleton for 10 months now. I have had the pleasure of visiting the facility on several different occasions, and I have seen each time, a consistent level of high quality service. Residents are permitted to receive nursing or other healthcare services from an outside home health agency, hospice agency, or private duty nurse. The apartments are good-sized and have large bedrooms. The apartments have kitchenettes, not full kitchens. The facility provides the meals which are of high quality. The residents can bring their meals back to their room if they'd like. During one visit, I was waiting in one of the common rooms for a staff member, and a group of the ladies had gathered to knit clothing for their pets, and they all seemed in such high spirits, sitting there, happily chatting away, while their pets were nestled in beside them. I was impressed by how the facility treats the residents with respect and acknowledges their needs and desires. Berkshire of Castleton has proved itself to be spot on in quality of service.
