At Berkshire Healthcare, we raise the bar in healthcare and housing for older adults, from meeting the unique needs of the communities we serve to changing the perception of what has traditionally been called a nursing home.

Our skilled nursing care centers are at the heart of what we do, helping older adults regain abilities whenever possible and creating a supportive homelike environment for those needing long-term care. In partnership with accountable care organizations (ACOs), our skilled nursing affiliates strive for effective, high quality outcomes for even the most complex medical conditions.

Our senior housing communities make this same commitment to quality of life for those who do not yet need skilled care. Options are available for residents whose needs focus more on assistance than skilled support or who currently live independently and are planning for future care needs.
