Be cautious when chooisng

It was a clean facility. My loved one needed memory care, and advertised that they took care of dementia patients. My loved one was there a short period of time. They did not give them showers, do laundry or did not know how to handle my loved one. They were not giving them their medication as needed and on time. I picked this place becasue it was a smaller community. It was very expensive. It was a negative experience. The staff was not accomodating.

Nice place to retire in your independent life

Nice place to live if you don't want to cook regularly and need some help with cleaning and laundry as well as meeting people in the similar age group. My husband stayed there for only over a month, while I stayed for two months. He needed to get some special treatment for his back pain, therefore he moved into another facility. The manager of Merrill Gardens understood his situation and waved an additional person's monthly fee, which we appreciated it very much. Over all, we had a good experience with the staff and the environment.

My review of Merrill Gardens

Merrill Gardens was a very nice facility, it was just a little too modern for what we liked and there was not enough nature. It was a great tour and the staff were friendly.

Mom is happy here

*Staff 5 *Cleanliness 5 *Activities 5 *Friendliness 5 *Food 5 Transition from home to Merrill Gardens was as smooth as one can expect with someone with cognitive impairment. The staff was very helpful during the transition, and continues to be so during these past few months. We are comforted in knowing that our mother is being well cared for.

In A Class of It's Own

When we were first moving in, there were some miscommunications, and a few issues with paperwork, but I think it's because Merrill Gardens is so new. After move in, everything has been very smooth. The staff is kind, caring and attentive, and the atmosphere is really positive. The food is top of the line, and they have such high standards. They only use fresh foods, and they have a great menu for the residents. They also have happy hour every day, a pool, tai chi in the mornings, outings, and live entertainment. The place is very clean, and I feel my loved one is very happy here. I would absolutely recommend Merrill Gardens
