My parents are moving into Merrill Gardens soon. The rooms are nice and spacious. I think they're more than adequate. They do a little remodeling after a resident leave or when they get a new one coming in. They make it all nice. They also have a lot of activities. They have regular church services, exercises for elderly, all kinds of board games, and group discussing history. They have planned activities basically every day.

Merrill Gardens is the nicest assisted living home I have ever visited. All of the common areas have lovely decor. The living areas are private with very spacious rooms. Each living area consists of a bedroom, bathroom, and living room. There is a nurse on site 24/7 to my understanding, which is comforting to the residents. I really like their dining area. It is very attractive and spacious. Actually, both the living and common areas are quite a bit more spacious than some facilities I have been to. The lobby is very large with plenty of seating. There is also a piano that residents can play if they wish. Sometimes musicians come to play in the lobby for the guests as well. The space and seating is especially appreciated in situations such as this because there is no feeling of being too crowded. As an elderly person myself, I hope that I am always able to live in my own home without assistance. However, if I am not able to live independently I cannot think of a nicer place to live.

Merrill Gardens at Florence is a great assisted living facility. It is located close to the beautiful St. Florian, Alabama right outside of Florence. The facility has very nice grounds and is in a pretty nice building. The services there provided by the staff was excellent in my opinion. All of the residents seemed to have some friendly connection with the staff members that they knew. It seemed like a very down to earth place that provided a sense of home. The activities and things that the residents were able to go to or use throughout the day were very nice. The residents enjoyed most things at Merrill Gardens. It is very open to family and friends visiting and has places for people to gather and visit their family member and have a nice time. The food services provided at Merrill Gardens are also exceptional. If I ever had to place a family member in an assisted living facility, Merrill Gardens would be a top choice.
