Reviews of Merriman the
Average Rating: based on 2 Reviews
I visited this facility
The Merriman is a smaller facility. They will only require you pay one flat rate and everything is included. They have lots of activities there especially those that would interest my grandmother. They have a fantastic library there, since she loves reading, she would enjoy that place too. Their staff is also fantastic. The one who gave the tour was very nice and willing to help. I would most definitely recommend this one.
I am a friend or relative of a resident
The Merriman is a very clean, well maintained, and elegant facility with spacious rooms, common areas and lots of activities for residents. The staff is very attentive, kind, and helpful. I think the main house was originally a mansion of one of the rubber barons, but I am not sure.My friend, who is a resident, always reports that the meals are wonderful, though she thinks they always feed her too much.Activities include live music several times a week, visiting pets once a week, lots of games, crafts, art projects, puzzles, and more. They have a small library, and lots of windows overlooking the garden and grounds.Residents seem to be in good spirits, and have many small groups of friends who enjoy different activities ranging from sitting on the patio to playing cards or board games.Staff did everything imaginable to help ease my friend's transition to the facility, and have made it a positive change for her, even though she still thinks of herself as a very independent person. All in all, they have done a great job and have improved her standard of living enormously.
