I visited this facility

Bellaken Garden offer both assisted living and skilled nursing. I've referred three residents there, and it's been a good fit.

One of the things I like about them is that they have hospice on site. That can be a good thing, since moving can be painful and traumatic.

Bellaken Garden is in Oakland, close to the Oakland Hills. It's a serene area--secluded, on a hillside, very parklike, with views of the foothills. It's beautiful but not close to shopping.

The have apartments for assisted living and room for skilled nursing. The apartments come in four floor plans. The facility itself is older but well kept up, and the ground are beautiful. They have 58 beds for assisted living. It's a gated community, and they have gardens and flowers like you wouldn't believe.

The staff is exceptional. There's little turnover, and they well trained.

The activities program is okay -- not the best but adequate. it's 7 days a week, from about 9 am to 4 pm, and they have a social worker assigned to each resident.

The residents I've referred there all say the food is very good. They don't offer a lot of choice, but they have three meals a day.

As assisted living facilities in the Bay Area go, Bellaken Garden is quite affordable. And it has skilled nursing available, which is nice, since it means residents don't have to leave when they need that level of care.

Historically, it has appealed mostly to an Asian clientele (mostly Chinese), which makes it a good fit culturally and linguistically for that population.

The facility itself, though, is old and a little dreary. And I've heard mostly bad reviews of the food.

Overall, it has an institutional feeling - not homey at all.

I do refer people there, though"”for affordability and for cultural fit.
