Perfect for first time assisted living experience

We chose Sakura Gardens of Los Angels because it was nearby the other facility that we had put a deposit down on had some construction issues and they helped us find it until it was finished. The facility itself has beautiful surroundings and is very safe and peaceful. The room sizes here are very spacious, they are also furnished it looks like a little house on the inside. I would want others to know so the residents are on the older side but they are very bright and nimble. Also, all of the food here is Japanese. The director and staff members here are very helpful and friendly and I would recommend it.

They have a lot of activities and volunteers from the Japanese community come out and do things in Japanese for them. They have beautiful gardens, a huge koi pond, waterfalls, rock sculptures, and bonsai trees within the grounds.

Review of Sakura Gardens Of Los Angeles

Sakura Gardens of Los Angeles was a very good place especially for memory care service. They had a private garden for memory care, and the facility was so clean. It's one of the best. The staff was very kind and knowledgeable, explained everything from the monitoring to the menu.

Review of Sakura Gardens Of Los Angeles

While evaluating Sakura, [names removed] made my mom and myself feel very comfortable that she would be well cared for. There was transparency and all our questions answered honestly. After being there for about a month, she confirmed that our trust was well founded. She is enjoying her stay and feels part of the community.

Review of Sakura Gardens in Los Angeles, CA

My mother is 95 years old. She has lived here 1/5 years. She is happy here - they have lots of activities, movies, exercise, coffee shop, art classes. The staff are all extremely helpful, friendly and kind. They have a dining room with 3 healthy tasty meals each day, and special lunches every so often. She has her own apartment and I feel she is safe and well taken care of. Thank you!!

Familiar With The Community

So far it is going good for my uncle. it did take some time to adjust but he loves the Japanese food that they make. The staff also speak Japanese which he likes too. The place is nice and it seems like they are going through some changes. Activities are posted on a board. I am overall happy with the community, it seems like a good fit for my uncle.
