The suites are beautifully appointed with neutral colors, wall to wall carpeting, window treatments, and a spacious closet. Residents enjoy the comforts of a private bathroom, an emergency alert system, and a kitchenette with a small fridge/freezer and microwave. Telephone service is included in the rent, and cable TV and WI-FI services are available. Bertram House residents can enjoy the privacy of their suite or invite a neighbor in for a visit! 


The Suites - Companion

Available in our Reminiscence (memory care) Neighborhood only.  These shared living suites have proven to be a success for both residents and families alike.  The cozy set-up provides plenty of space for each resident to personalize their own section.  The benefits of companionship has proven to promote both social and emotional growth for the residents, and the frequent comings and goings of staff members has ensured greater safety as well.

The Dining Room

Often compared to a country inn, our dining room serves as the center for social interaction.  With elegant table settings of fine silverware and china, we strive to make mealtime an exceptionally pleasant dining experience.  Each mealtime brings opportunities for residents to exchange stories with their friends, or linger over dessert and coffee or a glass of wine at the end of a delicious meal.
