Just a lovely place

reviewed 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.

Personal touches from Monah...

Personal touches from Monah...regarding getting ppl to eat. Didn't smell. Able to bring in own furniture for personal touches. Good activities board. Biggest concern was why the place overall was so quiet. No one was talking except the caregivers. Almost to quiet. Unsettling as music or noise calms ppl. Why is everyone so quiet?

Best Memory Care Facility

reviewed on: 02/29/2016 by Lisette

I can not say enough accolades about this wonderful place. My mother is an early stage Dementia patient. She was withdrawn and unhappy at home even though she had wonderful round the clock care. She was very agitated at home. Since coming to Melrose Gardens she is a new person. The staff is amazing especially the Director Ron. She is talking much more and participating in activities. It is truly a miracle. This facility is very very special and unlike any other. I can't thank the staff enough.

Same as Melrose Gardens...loved them ...

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.
