A very well run and beautif...reviewed on: 01/23/2014 by Anonymous
A very well run and beautiful facility, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We were fortunate to observe some of the residents participating in one of the many activities offered here. The rooms were just like home. It was obvious that the residents are very well taken care of. My relative was interviewed at the hospital where she was currently residing to determine if she would be a good fit for the facility. The only down side to this experience is that we were not notified directly by the Manager as to the outcome of that interview.Unfortunately we are still looking.
Meh.reviewed on: 08/03/2020 by Anonymous
When Monah left, so did the soul of the place. Melrose Gardens is nice on the surface, but not really set up for visiting with your elders, unless it's outside. There was a big rec room that was never used except to sign paperwork to get Mom set up to move there. The TV Room was uncomfortable, TV limited, and an archaic computer. No welcoming library filled with comfy chairs, not a lot of common space. Very expensive, because it's private. The dining room was a little depressing. Nice and caring staff, in general. Mom was okay there until they had a wealthy prospect, so they doubled Mom's rent to make it unreasonable enough to move out.
Just a lovely placereviewed on: 06/03/2013 by Kate
I recently helped my friend find a place for his mother, who is memory-impaired. We looked at half a dozen places. Some were tolerable, some were disgusting. The Cottages at Melrose Gardens were lovely, peaceful, clean, well designed, pleasant, respectful, organized, and charming. Flowers and art everywhere. The staff, especially Mona, were lovely and professional. It's a great comfort to my friend to know that his mother will be well cared for, safe, respected, entertained, and encouraged to retain all the skills and independence she can. It's a hard thing to need such help, but it's good to know it's there. I highly recommend that anyone in the Los Angeles area who needs a safe, peaceful place for a loved one check out the Cottages at Melrose Gardens.
My aunt seems happyreviewed on: 06/05/2015 by Anonymous
My aunt seems happy. It's just very hard to reach her. There's one telephone and you have to explain to them who you are. They ask you to callback and they're at lunch. It's short staffed. There's no individual phone in my loved ones room. That's my biggest complaint. I can't reach her. The parking is also challenging. You have to call in advance. It's not easy to visit. Whenever I do get a hold of the right person they say my aunt is doing well. (Care Services & Activities Not Applicable)
everything was finereviewed on: 05/27/2015 by Anonymous
The registration process and everything was fine, all done quickly and on time. However, we had paid up front for the whole month and my father ended up only staying there for a day before he had some issues and had to move out. We are still waiting for a response back from them regarding the finances of the situation.
