Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Some Mistake Were Made

My dad is physically doing better and the location is great but the facility and everything about it is so-so. They messed up real heavily with his medication and I was very unhappy they didn't give it to him right. The doctor was upset too because he increase the medication and they cut the dosage down by half. The management took off half of the month's charges. Another issue we had was once he recovered and he was able to shower by himself and the help was rejected they were still charging us for helping for charges.

Great life for a Senior

My mother has been living at the Gardens. She is so happy there. The staff is friendly and caring. Great Food and lots of social activities. The location is great. In the residential part of Santa Monica with a big parking garage. Safe neighborhood to go for walks. One block to the beach and close to all the action if you want it.

Caring , Active and Fun

My mother has been at Santa Monica Gardens for 3 years. The staff is happy and caring. She has so many friends because it is a warm family atmosphere. The activities are so much fun that I stay to participate. My mother is mentally sharp being a former professor. It is great that many of the residents are just like her. I am happy when I visit they have a large parking garage because I don't want to have to be stressed looking for a spot when I arrive. This is where I want to live when I am a senior.
