A good residential facility

They take the residents out but it is not really well advertised and they could offer more outing that are appropriate for all of resident's needs . The are always rushing during activities in the building . They just don't have enough staff support for activities. It's a nice residential facility. My mom is happy and the other resident seem to be fairly happy there. My mom says food is good. They have a nice outdoor patio and they offer underground parking for the residents.

My parents have lived at Merrill Gardens for the past few years. Staffing is always a problem. Chef quits regularly and any good staff leaves for better paying jobs. Can't keep a general manager. Food is horrible. If you need any help with daily living, they charge even more. Very expensive and rent is always going up. They need to pay a decent wage and try to keep staffing consistent. I do not recommend this place.

Located is perfect for shopping

Mom is doing fine since moving here. She seems to be well adjusted however I would like her to be doing more of the activities than what she is currently doing. The community has a piano that the residents can play or sit by the fireplace and listen to someone else play. The staff is wonderful very engaged with the residents and the families. The community is kept very clean and well maintained. They have different areas around the building to sit and visit with family or friends or just the other residents. Mom said the food is ok it could be better.
