Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Merritt Island, FL
4.8 / 5.0

We really like the concept of cottage living at Palm Cottages - our loved one does not have to travel far for meals and with the meals being served almost always at the same time this forces our loved one to get out of her room and go socialize with the other residents. Even though our loved one doe...

4.7 / 5.0

Of the suggested possible venues, Tranquility Haven was the best of the bunch and while some others were slightly lower in monthly cost, some were not places I would want to stay myself. The home in which my mom is now resident was clean and fresh and the employed personnel seem competent and friend...

5 / 5.0

I’m thrilled with the place. It was the only place that we were smiling when we left. The food is good and they are adaptive – even incorporating family recipes into the menu when possible. The administration and staff are just great.
