Assisted Living Reviews for Sakura Gardens

November 02, 2017

By Kim

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

We chose Sakura Gardens for my father because it has a Japanese community, they serve food that my father enjoys, and they have a memory care unit. They have all kinds of activities, too. They have exercise classes and entertainment. They have furnished apartments so we don't even have to bring anything.
