What Sets Us Apart?

What Sets Us Apart?

The idea of a nursing home arose out of the hospital system where there was a need for those in their golden years, that required nursing care, to receive this care outside of the hospital system.

Often high nursing care needs meant that their home was not an appropriate setting to receive this higher level of continuous nursing care. Instead, they moved into a facility with a strong medical environment: a nursing home. Nursing homes were set up to function just like a hospital, with the same look, feel and staffing structure that a hospital would have had.

Often, the choice about how a nursing home resident wanted to live wasn’t given a high priority, moreover nursing homes were structured around nursing processes and routines, leaving the nursing home resident feeling helpless and powerless.

Regaining Control of Your Life

Berrington, was born from a completely different belief. When you cannot remain in your original home, you deserve to move somewhere that is comfortable, well-appointed, warm and welcoming, easily becoming your new home.

While still providing services such as nursing care (and much, much more),  both of our Berrington locations give you a place to live that many liken to being aboard a cruise ship or like living in a boutique hotel; with nursing care provided.

Your every want and need are catered to at  Berrington. You’re not just here to keep living; you’re here to get the most out of your life and feel excited about each new day.


We emphasise the highest standard of service, exceeding your expectations at every turn.
