This was our second choice on the list. The staff are great and my in laws are here, this is a great facility
Very nice! The staff are friendly. This would have been at the top of my dad's list but memory care has a wait list.
Great visit. Facility has 2 floors, which Mom is inclined to not live on a ground floor. Met lots of the team who have significant tenure there. Talked with a resident who was lovely [name removed] and overall pricing is even attractive. Larger facility (125) beds so community is more actively engaged and lots of options on monthly calendar.
We chose Truewood by Merrill because of the availability and the options of care. The room sizes here are fine. I think communication with the nursing staff is really important. I like how they set up a doctor for our loved one and they work well with different insurance. They are also good with communication if there are any concerns. If I text them, it can take a while for them to answer so I think quicker response times could be useful. I would recommend to others looking.
It has been an absolute nightmare. I believe some of this is due to the administration. They have stolen and lied to me. They were to take our insurance and they didn't. No one knows what they are doing here. I had to get corporate involved to get some resolution.
We chose Willow Park because it had a separate entrance to the independent living section of the facility and they liked that. It is a nice size, it is fairly small so they have gotten to know all the others residents in the independent living portion. My step-dad he likes the food, if there is something he does not like he can request something specific that they can make. I would recommend to others looking.
this is a very active hands on assisted living operation which also offers independent living which I am currently a participant in. The activity room and recreation services dept are excellent. There is transportation to and from appointments available but only on tuesdays and thursdays They have entertainment 2 or 3 times a week and the same with moves although they don't have a theater, it's just shown in the Grand Room. The meals are OK but menus are limited. This is a very Happy, Bright place. Everyone including the Operation manager are readily available and great you by name when they see you. They one short fall is the lack of an RN after 4 pm and weekends.
Exceptional staff - even the USPS delivery person was engaging, [Name removed] provided thorough and frank explanation of all the steps in transitioning into assisted living. I found their philosophy behind their programs to be comforting. The facilities are clean and pretty. Willow Park seemed to bustle with activity.
Willow Park is a clean and comfortable community with adequate amenities and activities. The staff is friendly and eager to resolve concerns and answer questions. The care is quite professional and accommodating to work with. The medication dispensing system stays up to date. The meals appear well balanced, unless you may a vegetarian, and that was noted during the interview sessions, which at that time was not going to be an issue. However that issue can use some consideration. I feel comfortable with a family member living there and I am treated very respectfully if I have concerns, I highly recommend Willow Park.
Warm and inviting. [Name removed] was very knowledgeable about challenges seniors face and what the progression of dementia looks like and how to successfully go about transitioning our family member out of their home situation. Comfortable with medical staffing, liked the Bridges program for engaging assisted living residents with memory care group. Restaurant menu, lots of activites. Centrally located for us. Nice patio area, library and theater room.
My mom was in respite care here for about 3 weeks and it was great. We liked the brightness of everything and the wide hallways. The food seemed good and everyone was pleasant to deal with. The place was beautiful and clean. I would recommend this to other families.
This facility is wonderful and hands down the best in the area. They have independent, assisted living, and memory care all in one building and facilitate that very well. The services and medical care they offer are exemplary and excellent. The main reason why I chose this for my loved ones is because it doesn’t feel like a hospital setting and it’s like home. For activities, they offer things like live entertainment, movies, games, bingo, and a book club. Food, room cleaning, and laundry are included in the rent. Without a doubt I would recommend this facility to other families.
I toured here for my loved one, and knew very quickly that it was not going to be a good fit for us. Willow Park wanted a huge amount of money for a shared room with only a curtain between the two residents. I wanted privacy for my loved one, so I knew right away that we could not go to Willow.
Response from Truewood by Merrill, BoiseDecember 18, 2017
Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback about your experience with us. We regret to hear we were not a good fit for your loved one. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
The staff here are phenomenal. We had an immediate connection to all the people we talked with. And we know people who has had family members here and they raved about them. The staff is long term there isn't a high turnover which made us comfortable. They have daily activities and little outings get planned. The conditions are very nice. I would recommend this community.
I toured this community and it was nice and clean. The halls were big and spacious. The staff was helpful with my questions. I even meet the chef here and she made a repore with me immediately. There were no vacancies and that's why I'm not here and had to go with another community.
The care here at this community at is outstanding. We like the caring staff who keep us informed on any changes. The community has a nice atmosphere and is very clean. I feel good knowing that the menu of healthy meals is available. The activities that are offered are very helpful to my mom and that is something we like. We would highly recommend this community for the care of a loved one.
Based on my tour they were fine. However I just didn't getting a good feeling for a match. It looked clean. The staff were all nice and good at what they were doing. Everybody was happy when I walked through. The number of people, the layout, and the dining experience was not a good match for my mom.
Mom has been a resident of the Syringa Memory Care unit of Willow Park for 3 1/2 years now. Very pleased with the medical oversight provided to all residents as well as solid recommendations for additional services such as physical therapy, speech therapy, etc. [Removed] is an outstanding nurse, always completely focused on the well being of those in his care and it shows. [Removed] does an amazing job lining up stimulating, fun activities to meet the needs of all residents, regardless of their abilities. The kitchen routinely turns out nutritious, home cooked meals and provided numerous special dining occasions for every holiday. Food quality is top notch. My mom's quality of life has increased immeasurably. She is always clean, well dressed and I've witnessed how much she enjoys the wide variety of activities and outings. She has gone from living alone and rarely going out to a very active life with great friends. The staff has truly enriched her life and provided me with great peace of mind. This is my second experience, also having had my mother in law in the assisted living area until her passing. Such a great feeling knowing your loved one is surrounded by such loving people and capable staff. Thank you Willow Park.
Willow Park is a nice facility, and the caregivers are professional, loving, and attentive. The Health Services Director and his nursing associates are amazing. The support staff, including laundry, housekeeping, maintenance and van driver are all very caring, friendly, helpful and kind.
At the Willow Park, I really liked the cottages, they were like little houses. When we went, they had nothing available at the time, though. Also, I did not care for the assisted living side. The place they showed us was not what we were looking for.
