I cannot say enough about Berkley East. They have four floors. They have excellent care for their patients. In fact, the elderly may as well stay there because they have all of their medical needs, and they are well taken care of. I don't know how many people they have on their staff, but there are 7 patients per nurse. They come in at 8 and leave at 3, and they are around the clock or 24-hour care. They are extremely knowledgeable, and they take very good care of their patients. It is a little pricey, but it is worth every penny. They have a rehab department that is to die for. There are at least 15 or maybe 20 therapists. They are working with their patients, and no matter how minor or serious the rehabilitation is, they are right on the spot. They are all very well equipped and very knowledgeable with their patients. We are very pleased, and my husband has very good care.

Considerate and professional. My mother is at Berkley East for the second time in two years. Being in a rehab facility is a complete drag for any person let alone someone with limited mobility and ability to care for herself. Still my mother is receiving considerate and professional care in an warm environment. Apart from quitting my job and moving in with my mom, I cannot replicate this level of care at home to say nothing of being unable to provide the PT and OT that she needs. I am grateful for the care she is receiving at Berkley East.

When first entering the facilities of Berkley East, I was charmed by it's overall ambiance and setting close to the beach. The rooftop allowed for lovely days with my grandfather in the beautiful California sun. However, in terms of the staff I was not to impressed. While most had a great aura about them, the ones designated for my Grandfather where often neglectful or unwilling to do difficult tasks, such as helping him stand up. Instead they would say things like, "he is not quite ready, he needs rest." rest was the last thing he needed! Subsequently my grandfather would often appear tired and lathargic. To prevent themselves for being liable for his condition, they over 3 times had him transferred to the nearby hospital, which ended up traumatizing him further. At 87 these visits to the hospital where not easy!

My dad lives here. While she was still living, my mom lived here too. We chose it because it's across the street from St. John's Medical Center -- very convenient if you have doctors there or are having radiation, etc. in the John Wayne Cancer Center across Santa Monica Blvd. from St. John's. Staff is available to take residents via wheelchair to both those facilities. It's clean and mostly furnished (hospital-style) doubles with a few singles. There is no separate dementia facility, though patients with dementia are accepted here on a case-by-case basis; most have private-duty nurses. The staff is pleasant and works hard to create activities such as ice cream socials and bingo that will interest residents. They work well with the private-duty staff, and have always been good about assisting Dad's nurses with diapering, walking etc (Dad can walk the halls with a walker and assistance, which he does several times a day). Physical and occupational therapy is in the basement, as is the hairdresser/barber. A couple of very friendly therapy dogs come to work with one of the therapists, and visitors are welcome to bring family pets along. The roof garden is wheelchair-accessible and very pleasant, with views of the ocean and the Santa Monica Mountains. There are occasional outings, but most residents are so infirm that they're really not able to benefit from this type of activity. It's in a nice residential area between Santa Monica and Wilshire, so you can take your loved one for a wheelchair spin in the neighborhood if he/she feels up to it. Parking (paid) is also in the basement and is very limited. When it fills up, parking spaces more than one hour are several blocks away, so you have to keep feeding the meters. Parking in this part of town is only free on Sundays.
