This has been a positive experience with the community for us. I feel it was better than a prior community my loved one was at. I believe the community could use more staff; however, I feel a lot of communities could all use more staff as well.

a very nice community with a wonderful staff

My father was not thrilled to be going into Assisted Living, but he loves Truewoods! He has made a lot of friends, and the staff there is wonderful with him. My father loves the food. Based on other facilities and their costs, I believe Truewoods is a tremendous value.

Seemed like a nice facility on our tour stop, had somethings that could be better presented when doing a tour. Needed entryway carpets cleaned and some other maybe deep cleaning when showing potential residents on tours.

It's a nice place

It's a nice place, and overall its a good deal. The activities director is very busy all the time. Activities include get togethers with musical guests and entertainment, crafts, bowling, Margarita Monday's, etc.. My apartment is the 1 bedroom with a fridge, cabinet space, and a nice bathroom. I also have a fairly big closet. I would recommend Truewood by Merrill Bradenton to others.

Peace of Mind with Safety and Comfort and Immediate Sense of Family

We had an opportunity to meet [name removed]. The staff and [name removed] made my loved ones and myself feel like family and welcomed us immediately into the community during the tour. The community recently set up a group text message to keep us updated when necessary. The kitchen is in the middle of being remodeled, and there has been a limited menu options available. The quality of the food is great. The community has numerous activities for the residents to participate in. They also have family rooms for the residents to utilize and still have a quiet space but a way to interact with other residents as well.

Disappointed

The main issues are that they are very unresponsive, it is very hard to get a hold of anyone to go and check on her. The kitchen has been under construction for 3 months now and the residents are having to eat off of the cheapest paper plates you can buy and drink out of little Styrofoam cups. I would not recommend Truewood by Merrill Bradenton to other families looking.

Phenomenal

They are first class. I couldn't have picked a better place. Any issues the staff have helped me out. I can't say enough about these people. They were the third place I checked. This was the third times a charm and this was the case for me and my loved ones. My Mom joined the women's activities as well as the exercise classes. I love seeing her so involved in the activities as she was not before. I see a spark in her I haven't seen in a long time here. They provide a lot of activities. They have a setup like a gym with free weights, trainer that will come help them exercise safely. They have a lot of outdoor areas so the residents can get out in the sun. There is no lack of things they can do. They have community get togethers. Poker games, movie nights, etc. You get what you pay for.

Our families experience

Truewood by Merrill is a beautiful building, the community is very nice but it was not a long stay for our loved one. The two manager folks were very good at selling their services. When we initially met with them they went above and beyond to answer our questions. The meals were excellent but the staff was poor. It would take them 15-20 minutes to figure out the room our loved one was staying in when we would come to visit. At one point a staff member told us our loved one walked out of the building and to the end of the parking lot, but another staff member said she even walk more then a mile further. They just had no control over their residents. The memory care unit is very sad and not much activity stimulation at all.

Great place to live!

From the time we arrived complete with red carpet and singing through our first 90 days my husband and I couldn’t be happier that we chose Truewood. We have lived at two other assisted living communities and we just didn’t feel welcomed at either. This staff from leadership to housekeeping makes us feel special and cared for. Thank you [names removed] for helping us make the move to our new “home”.

Overview of Truewood

We went with Truewood by Merrill because it was the closest to where my loved ones rehab was and it was recommended to me. One thing I think they could definitely use improvement on is communication. I feel like I leave more voicemails than I get answers.

Tour of Truewood by Merrill

I actually really enjoyed doing our tour virtually since I am so used to zoom calls and things like that. It was great and the lady who showed us around was very nice. The facility is a little bit older. This was our second choice.

My experience with Truewood

I chose Truewood by Merrill because they had an apartment that had 2 bathrooms in it and that made all the difference, especially if I had guests stay over. They have a great system, once a week they test the residents for covid, it is very safe here. A lot of the residents here seem to need more assistance. If you need more care, you don't have to immediately move and can get the extra care you need which I thought was attractive.

Has A Great Nature Preserve

After touring this community we were really leaning towards this one but then my mom had a stroke and that changed things a little. This community is much larger than others we had looked at and I felt that it might be too much for her to get used to. It has a great nature preserve which I loved but I didn't think that mom would get the same appreciation that I did out of it. The staff was extremely friendly and nice and the community was very well cared for and very clean.
