About the community

The Oaks, a Merrill Gardens Community, is Gilbert's premier senior living community located less than a block south of the Mercy Gilbert Medical Center. The Oaks offers independent, assisted living, and memory care services. Merrill Gardens is one of the most respected owner-operators of assisted living retirement communities in the country. For more than four generations we have been a privately held, family-owned company and have been operating senior living communities since 1993. One of the many reasons we are different from other retirement communities is that ALL of our apartments are licensed, which means our Independent residents do not need to move to an Assisted Living apartment when they need care. Residents can age in place and enjoy the same events, activities, dining experience, and of course relationships without worrying about a dramatic change in living situation due to care assistance.
Call today and schedule your visit to our community to see why residents at The Oaks ENJOY MORE!

A safe place for my mom

It is a safe place and nice way to meet other people in similar circumstances. The apartment is perfect for my mom and she likes it. The food is average but they offer a variety of options in restaurant style dining. The building is very nice, bright, and comfortable. i would recommend this community but be sure to continue visiting your loved one and be there for them.

Friendly Place

A little challenging with mom in quarantine, she is not able to utilize many of the amenities. Generally it is a friendly staff, some staff members have heavy accents so it is hard to communicate with residents who are hard of hearing. Overall good caring staff. Food is good. Medical staff is not as well educated on medical equipment as I would have thought they would be.

Poor Management

My Grandma was living there until a few months ago after you all decided to change Management and a lot of staff. Pretty faces don’t make your business successful. The staff is not all the experienced there was no real nurse on the staff team just LPN which are not a real Nurse. The food has changed for the worse and the place is not clean silverware is always dirty or just maybe needs to be replaced. This place just does not seem to really care about there patients and the staff got worse since August or 2019 once all these changes took place. The Kitchen staff changed the nurses changed Med Techs do not know how to care for people. The you bring you complaints to the New General Manager an she just does not care. This place needs to take a deep dive into who is really running the OAKS
