About Us

Our family is honored and excited with the opportunity to serve our Napa Community . We are pleased to be able to open The Berkshire and offer the level of service and quality that we have in our previous operations.

We are also pleased to be part of an excellent group of Residential Care providers in the Napa Area. We recognize that every Assisted Living Home has something different to offer, and we are committed to helping our seniors, and friends and families find the right situation for them. If we are not the right place, we’ll help find the right one. We’re also happy to offer our comprehensive local list of Residential Care Facilties in our area, and a checklist of questions to assist you in your search.

Our rates begin at $1850/ month for a shared room, and $2550 for a private room. We also offer a lower second person rate for a spouse sharing a room. These rates include all meals, snacks, medication management, assistance with personal care, a furnished room, activities, housekeeping and laundry services, and many other special amenities. We have no community fee, and you will find our rates to be comprehensive and reasonable. There are additional fees for higher levels of dementia care, incontinence care, pet care or other specialized needs. We’d be happy to provide more information or a quote for a specific situation.
