A great place to live and make friends.

It's very secure. They've been very friendly and accommodating. The facility is kept clean, and they pay attention to your needs. Whatever you need, they're there. My loved one enjoys the food for the most part. The cost is a bit high for us, but we're managing.

my review of Truewood by Merrill, Port Charlotte

Each unit has a very nice screened-in balcony and the apts. has a good amount of storage space. The staff is very friendly and helpful and is very close to the hospital in the area. I would recommend this community to others based on my experience.

I would recommend it

I chose Truewood by Merrill because they are very receptive. My apartment is good size for what I need. I do think they could improve on the food quality that is served. Every time they serve chicken, it is overcooked therefore making it tough. The food is served with gravy and that hides imperfections. Their response time for any problems that you might have has been excellent. I would recommend to others looking.

Be conscious about the facilities you are putting mom or dad in, make sure to ask questions

The facility has been sold twice since my mother has been here, the organization is not financially stable. Repairs are at a minimum. For example the people who have pets are not required to have vet records for their animals. They ended up having a flea infestation inside the facility and it went on for 4 months. Requests are sometimes ignored. The director said we could call whenever and he would call back quick if he cannot get to the call. I have called 4 times and he has called me back one time. The food here was supposedly chef driven but it is not, the quality of food is not what you would expect it is mostly frozen and canned. I do not feel like the staff members here are trained very well and there has been constant turnover. I would move her if I could.

30 year old building, but kept up pretty well. Rooms bigger than thought. [Name removed] was kind and helpful, on site Chef. 4 stars out of only 32, though. $3000 for 1 bedroom

This is a nice facility, however my Mother is more interested in Independent Living and this facility has both Independent and Assisted Living, she is not ready to co mingle with assisted living conditions at this time.

To to big for my mother-in-law

We had a very nice tour of this community and the staff was able to answer all our questions as well. And from what we saw it was clean and well-kept up for the most part. We just felt that this community would be too large with the multi stories and would be hard for the mother-in-law to get around.

The Meals Need Accommodations

My uncle is living here and there has been issues. One of the staff, [Removed], has an attitude and that job does not fit her at all. We filled out paperwork for automatic payments but they are taking it from the wrong account. We filled out everything and corporate has to change it. He does not eat chicken or turkey and they serve a lot of that. I talked to them to see if they can accommodate him. The laundry service has taken a week to return the clean items. I thought they were accommodating to the residents.[Removed], the sales manager, is dynamite and you could not ask for a better person, I really like her.

Grateful for Royal Palm

One of the most difficult things one faces in life is the necessity of entrusting your parents to the care of an Assisted Living Facility ("ALF"). Royal Palm is more than an "ALF". The question most are concerned with has to do with their parents being able to accept their change of living environment, and all that it entails. For my sister, brother, and me, it truly is a blessing in every aspect. Whenever I visit unannounced I can plainly see that everything is just as it should be. The rapport that has been established between Royal Palm's staff and my parents is one of friends who care for each other. When I go to visit my folks I am truly glad that I did, because they love to tell me about how much each person there means to them. Now that they are there, I am convinced that God gave us His guidance and that they are under His loving care.

My visit

This was a nice community when we took our tour. The people we met were friendly and helpful. This community was larger than the community we chose. I felt overwhelmed with the many corridors and I did not think it would work well for mom.

She Has Understanding Staff

My mom is doing very well at this very nice facility. It has not been easy for her at the moment but she is attempting to get involved with the dining experience and she has activities available when she is ready to try that out. We call her daily to see how she is doing and the staff have been very accommodating and made the move in very easy. It was helpful having them get everything started and doing everything they said they would. The community is clean and the people living there are friendly.
