Family member participation is welcomed and encouraged.

An inviting and beautiful environment, inside and out, an experienced and attentive staff, and excellent services and care – all together– result in a vibrant, warm, caring community where residents, staff, and family members share a bond and feel an uplifting sense of comfort and belonging.

Family Owned

Care, quality and service have been the rock-solid foundation of our business for over 40 years. Our focus has always been the same; the health and happiness of our residents, providing an exemplary level of service, maintaining beautiful, clean and safe buildings, and providing a great place to work for our employees.

We are extremely proud that our staff members average over 5 years’ service within their community. This longevity is extremely rare within our industry, yet experience and stability are probably the most important factors when it comes to resident care and satisfaction.

Our Executive Directors have been with us for over 10 years in each of our four Bay Area locations. They put their hearts and souls into their community. The long lasting and personal relationships they have with residents, families and staff are developed through their trust, caring and understanding.

Knowing our business is all about people; the Berg family management style has always been hands-on and personal. You will see us in each community, providing leadership, talking with and encouraging our staffs and meeting with our residents. We are so happy and proud that our son Jon, who shares our values and goals, has chosen to follow in our footsteps and will lead in years to come.

All of us are continually working to make improvements; be it caregiving, food services, activities, housekeeping, facility maintenance or administration, always with the goal of making our residents’ experiences even more enjoyable. We stand strong, having built our reputation on our premier levels of care and service.

Welcome to Moraga Royale and the Berg family. Let us know what we can do for you.

Other Berg Communities

Berg Senior Services offers premier assisted living and memory care in four locations throughout the Bay Area. We are family, “hands-on and involved,” owned and operated. The exceptional and experienced Director at each of our communities has been with us for over 16 years.

Each community is safe and homelike, beautifully decorated with style and distinction, and staffed by caring and creative professionals. Monthly rents include a full array of services such as dining, weekly housekeeping and laundry, scheduled transportation, entertainment, and wellness and recreational activities.

You can have total assurance of the quality of care provided, and peace of mind knowing you or your loved one is in a comfortable, vibrant, safe and loving community. We hope you will come for a visit and let us know what we can do for you.
