My mother and I toured several senior communities in the area. Westwood had the right mix of spacious apartments, available services, good menu, and lots of social activities. [name removed] was exceptionally helpful discussing options and the needs of my mother. We selected Westwood because of the staff, the facility, and the fit. Wonderful!

Tour of Meridian at Westwood

I really liked Meridian at Westwood. The lady who showed me around was very friendly and the rooms were large. The facility itself is very big, about 7/8 stories. The pay does increase as your care level increases, they have different packages available and we were looking more for something that was all one price. If you do not need a lot of care this place is great! But if you need more care I think it would get pretty expensive.

The activities they offer are great, our loved one is really enjoying his stay there. He prefers the breakfast when it comes to the meals because breakfast is hard to mess up. The value for cost is extremely under priced for everything the community offers and what you are paying for.

Good value

Our loved one was in the memory care side of the community, and it was dark and not as bright and warm like the rest of the community. There were time when we would go visit and we were not let out of the locked unit because there was not assistance available to let us out. It was a good value for our loved one though.

Full Service and Friendly Staff

I would suggest you check it out and visit the community. The structure of the community is very appealing. There is a large atrium in the middle of the community and it is kind of like a cruise ship. It is attractive and it is a nice place to sit outside of their room. The have shuffleboard and other items for entertainment. There is always some events and they are coming back.
