    Both of my parents, with varying stages of dementia, are in Berkeley Vale Care Community. All the staff are amazing and treat them as they are part of their family. They are very accommodating with my parents needs and nothing is too much trouble for them. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs the extra care for their family members who need care.

    I would not recommend to anyone. Used this for respite as relative was recovering from operation. Our experience was terrible. Duty of care disgraceful. Follow up action -nil Other peoples medications used and out date for my relative. The list of negatives is endless. Nothing positive about this place. Our elderly citizens deserve to be treated with dignify and respect. Shame on the management Please look at other alternatives. Don’t be fooled by first contact and how friendly they appear. Once your in it all changes. And this was just for 6 weeks respite. My relative was deeply affected emotionally by this place.

    Tracey and Kristy have made the transition so easy and comfortable for not only mum but also my family. All the nursing staff have been amazing and caring mum has a better quality of life since being at Opal.

    My cousin was recently admitted and we cannot fault the competent and compassionate care shown to all of us, the admin team - namely Tracey and Christie for their ever present courtesy and care. In fact all staff have been extremely friendly, polite and go the extra mile. The rooms are faultless, clean, well maintained and positioned well throughout the village providing a good and healthy outlook to the gardens. Our cousin has been to 3 retirement homes and has declared this is the best by far, she claims there is absolutely nothing to complain about, she is treated with the utmost respect and care.

    Exceptional care given by all staff that I have met. My grandmother seems very comfortable and satisfied at OPAL BERKELEY VILLAGE where she resides. The facility is always very clean & the atmosphere is positive. Residents seem happy and content & what I particularly liked seeing was that the staff were very friendly. Thankyou 🙏❣
