Life at Berkley East

We Are Here for You

Our Family Caring for Yours

At our skilled nursing facility in Santa Monica, we cherish every patient who walks through the doors to our facility, and we are determined to help him or her succeed. We accomplish this by developing a culture of connectedness among our staff and taking a personal approach with each resident to ensure exceptional care is considered in every detail.
Upon arrival, our team member will meet with the patient and his or her family to provide practical answers to their questions, review the individualized treatment plan, and help them understand what to expect. Our vision is to improve the health and well-being of our patients through quality care, and we aspire to do that every day.
Our highly trained staff of registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, and certified nursing assistants are here 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to give genuine, loving care and personalized assistance to our patients. They vow to treat each patient with the utmost respect, show daily compassion, and meet the needs of those they serve.

 Life Tastes Good at Berkley East

A great nursing facility prioritizes every aspect of a patient’s well-being, and good nutrition is crucial during the recovery process. That is why we do our best to help our patients maintain a healthy and balanced diet during their stay at our skilled nursing home.

When a new patient is admitted into Berkley East, he or she meets one-on-one with our registered dietitian to discuss dietary restrictions and needs. After learning of the patient’s medical history and current medical state, our dietitian creates a customized meal plan that is displayed on a dietary card for our staff to refer to during mealtimes.

We create an incredible dining experience by providing patients with homemade meals ranging from hearty vegetable soup to grilled salmon glazed in lemon, and a spacious dining room with wooden dining tables and cushioned chairs. Patients are also welcome to eat in the comfort of their bedrooms or on our rooftop patio lined with seating areas, umbrellas, and an ocean view.

If patients are hungry during non-mealtime hours, a variety of beverages and healthy snacks are available.

Never Too Old to Enjoy Life

At Berkley East in Santa Monica, we understand that the best type of therapy is helping our patients do what they love with the people that they love. That is why we create an open and healthy environment in our skilled nursing facility that encourages social interaction and allows the patients to pursue their passions.

Our facility holds monthly council meetings for patients to share their ideas and plan future activities and events. All family members are invited to attend to support their loved one and help influence his or her social life.

Once activities are chosen, our activities director works closely with the activity staff to gather the required materials and plan the events. Below are some of the activities the department holds regularly:

Card Games

Board Games

Arts and Crafts

Television Shows

Friday Afternoon Socials

Weekly Outings

*Each resident has unique limitations—some more severe than others. To combat these limitations, we break our residents into groups based on their level of ability. This ensures that all residents can interact with others and develop new hobbies without exceeding their comfort level.
