I visited this facility
Merrill Gardens is OK. It is a lot more expensive than the other facility I liked. I liked the dining area. The menu was fine; in fact, they allowed us to eat a meal there. The room has its own bathroom and kitchenette. One of the good things about Merrill Gardens is it is all on one floor. Elevators doesn't bother me, but the only thing you worry about is if you have a power failure in an emergency. It is kind of difficult for older people if you are on the top floor and have to leave that place in a hurry. It is not an easy thing for senior citizens. The staff is OK and fine. The location is fine. It is right across the street from us. I live in an upscale neighborhood, so it is in a good neighborhood as far as that is concerned. They seem to have quite a few activities, and it wouldn't be any problem there.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mom was only there at Merrill Gardens for maybe six months, and we were totally satisfied. She had a very nice room, and the staff was great, very caring, and attentive. I don’t have any complaints at all. The grounds were very well-maintained, it’s a very attractive property, and it was off the main highway, so it’s very quiet.
They had bingo, a game room, they have people come and sing, and they have church on Sunday mornings or services. I thought it was very good. The food wasn’t great, but it’s not bad. It’s like cafeteria food or hospital food, but when mom was not there anymore, they changed the chef and food managers, so maybe it has improved.

My grandmother has been living in Merrill Gardens for two whole years. From her experience, she says its worth the money. The employees there are very helpful and make sure to check on her many times a day. She has had some prior problems with a couple of the "newer" employees, but almost everyone else is just like family. They remember her name and all the different types of pills that she is on. When I go and visit her, they are very nice to me and my family. The building itself is very clean and new, but its sort of far away from our hometown. But since she spends all her time here, its worth it. The amount of people in the building inst too high, but it is a bit crowded around holidays. The reason give this place a 4, is the pricing. My grandmother needs our help to pay the monthly fees, but we will do anything to keep her here.
