I visited this facility
Merrill Gardens looked like it was a place that would respect people. You could have your own apartment and also have somebody check on you. The entry lounge area was like in a big house like you might get into an older hotel. I also remember there were a lot of neat features like a little garden outside. The staff seemed fine.
I visited this facility
I recently visited the Merrill Gardens at Greenhaven (just a few minutes from the downtown Sacramento area) to visit an older client of mine. It's more of an apartment-style community which is neat because it makes the place feel less like a facility and more like a home. Guests are always welcome to join in on meals with residents, or even special activities. The staff helps with daily household chores, meal service (of course), event coordination, and physical assistance but ultimately I think this place is really better suited for active seniors who are still pretty independent. The layouts of the rooms vary in size. The studios are a little too small in my opinion, but the 1 and 2 bedrooms are nice (some even have kitchenettes). The facility is kind of out of date (ie. older), as well as the furnishings, but the common areas are spacious and always kept really clean. There are some neat hang out spots for residents and visitors like a cozy study, well equipped recreation rooms, and even a nice aviary. The facility has some well-landscaped gardens to enjoy, too. The outside area has paved walking paths and lovely gardens for residents to take advantage of whenever they want. Overall, I think this facility is incredibly comfortable and homey.
I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mother and father-in-law lived at Merrill Gardens at Greenhaven. From the first time we visited the facility, we found it to be clean and well kept up. The setting is beautiful; set off the street so there is plenty of green space with the large trees. The staff was friendly and helpful. Whenever we had a question or need help, they were available. The apartment that my in-laws had was small, but well appointed. The laundry facilities were easy to use and conveniently located. The food in the dining room was good and the wait staff was friendly and attentive. The location was ideal for my in-laws, close to shopping and downtown Sacramento. When driving was no longer an option, the van service that Merrill Gardens provided was helpful. In addition, the activities director worked hard to make sure that there was a variety of activities available for people who were interested.
