Our experience with Merrill Gardens

The tour was great but then after getting things settled, they told us he was not able to come because of some open wounds that he had. My aunt ended up moving her stuff in and then fell and we had to move it all out and I will say they were helpful during all of that. I would tell others to make sure to find out what the assisted living rules are before moving your loved on into here.

Very Nice Place to Retire To

Go young, don't be old when you get there. If you fall they send you to the hospital and then they can't welcome you back into the community. They are unable to handle skilled nursing. I would like to see skilled nursing offered at this community. The best thing about the community is the good location, and nicely set up.

More independent living

Merrill Gardens is pretty expensive, and it was brand new when we first looked at it so it had some issues. Some of the staff was fine, it really just depended on who you talked to that day. This community is more independent living so there weren't to many care services to be provided. The activities were very good, they have library groups that my mother really enjoyed, they would also go out on little outings. You would pay one overall fee for the food per month, and from what we understand its more of a restaurant setting where you could eat anytime between 7AM-7PM. The was special menu items you could order, as well as a more simple menu. However, they would constantly run out of food or coffee.

I love this place!! The staff was very nice. [name removed] was the most helpful of anyone with whom I have spoken; she provided much information of which I had no clue. The activities schedule is packed with things to do, including spiritual opportunities. The entire setting is well-kept and hotel-like, instead of institutional. I appreciate the fact that care is on a level-based pricing, instead of an all-inclusive for services one may not need.

Bright, cheerful and beautifully decorated for Christmas. I did not see many residents, but I liked the layout. I also liked the fact that you can eat your meals any time of the day from 7:00 to 7:00. Location is wonderful - near shopping and near medical (and it happens to be near my daughter).

Outstanding Care for mom

This is a great community and when we walked in we knew that my mom would receive great care. The staff is always caring and attentive to my mom's needs. The community is clean and a wonderful environment for her to live in. The menu is outstanding with the healthy choices that are available. They offer great activities for her to participate. We would highly recommend this community to other families.

Happy Mom :)

Our Mom LOVES Merrill Gardens. It is wonderful that she can have her dog Benji with her. She loves sitting on her back patio full of plants and flowers. Her independence is very important to her. My sister and I feel that we made the best decision EVER, moving Mom to Merrill Gardens where she is thriving, feels very safe and is happy :)

I Felt Better Living Here

I like the community very much and it is very nice too. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else but here. I like the way it is set up and it is spacious all around. I liked the feeling when I toured and I knew a few people here. I would recommend the community.
