Cheryl Hadel - My loved one(s) live(s) or lived in this community
Very nice place before COVID hit

We chose Meridian at Westwood because it was close to my house so we could visit often. She had a 2 bedroom 2 bath and it was very nice and big. The food here was decent, they had breakfast lunch and dinner served down at the dining room before covid. Then they had to send food up in a styrofoam container. We ended up moving her out due to not being able to visit her.

Second Family

The Meridian at Westwood aka "Westwood" for many, many years, has been through numerous changes over the years and are currently going through major renovations but the one constant in in all those changes for my parents has been the employees. My parents have lived at Westwood for 12 years and have no desire to leave their extended family. A major part of the staff have been there for 5+, 10+, even 15 and 20+ years and have brought my parents and the other residents through the changes with respect and love as a family should.
