Pretty Nice

The apartment is very nice. It's clean. My loved one is enjoying the social aspect of it and has made a lot of friends since being there. She's happy there, and that's what really matters the most.

Great Place for Our Needs

Great place for a loved one that needs assistance/independent living. I toured about 5-6 in the area before we chose one. You need to personally visit to be able to get a feel for things. We felt meridian provided a bunch of opportunities for my father-in-law and staff and residents were very informative and friendly. It was a great fit for our needs.

Worth the money

If you want to put your mother in a quality memory care facility at a fairly good rate I would definitely pick this community. They have piano recitals, happy hour, work outs in a big open area, doing nails, arts and crafts and more. I originally picked this community due to all of the activities that they offer for the residents to keep them busy and active.

Community Tour

Meridian at Westwood was so depressing. The facility was very outdated in its décor and amenities. The dining experience very open, but it wasn't decorated and inviting, just empty. Cleanliness was almost non-existent. The room that they showed us was a room that never got touched. It was damaged and there were holes in the wall. And they showed it to us as if they were not concerned at all about its condition.

Bugs, bugs, bugs

The outside is gorgeous, the foyer and the atrium are all gorgeous. The staff is kind, polite and some of them are really trying. The rooms are horrible, dirty and not cleaned nor kept up. We complained for 3 years about roaches-every visit they promised to spray and did but only his room and roaches travel. By the time we moved Dad out of state, his room was infested with three types of bugs. Apparently the issue is Pacifica bought them and the current adm is not able to spend $$ on what is necessary. Before moving into any Pacifica owned property, try to contact Pacifica- you cannot! The housekeeping is subpar too. Towards the end, he was not getting timely care either. He had gone into a wheelchair and no room to get it in bathroom so had to have a porta pot out in living room. Everyone too over worked to look out for what he needed. He certainly wasn't living the "luxury life" they promised.
