Dear Patients, Residents and Families

COVID-19 Second Booster Dose
The CDC recently released a recommendation for a second COVID-19 booster dose for certain persons. Specifically, a second mRNA booster dose could benefit people ages 50 years and older, as they are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. People ages 50 years and older may choose to receive a second booster dose, if it has been at least 4 months after the first booster. We recommend that appropriate residents receive their second booster dose. The COVID-19 vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) are available. Please let your physician or nurse know right away if you or your loved one would like to receive the second booster.

Discover why friends, families, and our residents recommend Berkshire Commons Senior Living Community as "The Place to Be” in Berks County. Our Senior Living and Rehabilitative Health campuses offer our residents the opportunity to seamlessly transition from senior living to skilled nursing care and back.  Rest assured that as a member of our health campus, we will take care of all your needs along the continuum - helping you to remain vital and strong as long as possible. Our community is located in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, in Exeter Township, surrounded by the beautiful grounds of the Reading Country Club. It features exquisite views of the sunsets over the Neversink Mountain, and numerous shopping venues to meet everyone's individual style. Our community is enjoyable and worry-free because our nursing and senior services are second to none. Choose from eight different styled living arrangements from private studios to large one bedroom suites to fit the unique social and financial needs of each of our prospective residents. Light up your taste buds with chef-prepared meals during our "Dine your way" option.  Relax with personal housekeeping, fresh linen service, and chauffeured transportation. Genesis Therapists offer complimentary evaluations upon every admission to make sure all safety concerns are addressed. With our onsite Genesis Therapists and Physician Services, residents will have all of their needs taken care of in one place. Berkshire Commons is happy to have served our local community for over 20 years!

In addition to our Personal care apartments, Berkshire Commons offers a cozy, secure Memory Support Neighborhood with 28 private rooms and a beautiful enclosed courtyard. Our Memory Support Neighborhood offers residents specialized programming and meaningful activities 7 days a week. We are so proud that Dementia Care Education by Genesis HealthCare is recognized by the Alzheimer’s Association® for incorporating the evidenced-based Dementia Care Practice Recommendations in the following topic areas: Alzheimer’s and dementia, person-centered care, assessment and care planning, activities of daily living, and behaviors and communication.

Berkshire Commons also offers Respite Stay options for a variety of needs. Those residents that are in Rehabilitation communities and are not quite ready to go home yet, can continue receiving therapy services while allowing them to receive assistance as needed prior to going home. Berkshire Commons also offers to those Caregivers the opportunity to take that much needed break from the demands of life and allowing your loved one to socialize in a welcoming safe environment.
