Reviews of Silverado Berkeley | Independent Living
KJ2 March 27, 2014
I visited this facility
I hated Vintage Senior Living. I didn't like it because you walk in, and you got your reception desk on the left, and then the major activity room is part of the reception area. And so people are walking in and out while there is a concert. It was like a violin, piano concert and classical music. I didn't like any aspect of it.
There was a heavy scent that felt like it was trying to cover something else. It made me physically uncomfortable. I'm not normally sensitive to scents, but it was heavy enough so that it actually gave me a headache. There were several places where the ramps to go up to another area were steep and long, and I knew my mom would not be able to make it up them. She has COPD, and she'd never make it breathing-wise up the ramp, and definitely not the steps.
I thought the rooms were small. It wasn't really setup for much independent living. And mom needs to feel that she's as independent as she can be. So it just didn't feel like a right place.
