Recent reviews of Memory Care in Santa Monica, CA
Sunrise of Studio City
4.0

The staff and care were fine. The caregivers were all very friendly and knew what they were doing. The community was always nice and clean. They had a piano and that was lovely. The fitness program was great and I participated as much as I could. I liked that I could keep my dog with me and take him out to socialize with other residents who had pets.
