My aunt is now at Emeritus at Gig Harbor. We like the assistance that the facility is offering; that is why we chose this for her, as well as the location. The staff were very helpful and dedicated, and that is a big positive thing for this facility. The rooms were pretty convenient, and they have a variety of sizes, so those were helpful. I like that they have lots of light with big windows in each room. I was actually able to eat there, and the food is very good. They have activities going on every day, and people were living there long term.

I visited this facility

We didn't like Emeritus at Gig Harbor. It looked very clean, and the rooms were lovely. However, it was a total turnoff because we have to sit at the same table all the time and be with the same people all the time. We didn't meet anybody else except the person that was guiding us, and that guy was nice.

I visited this facility

We’ve been to Emeritus. We decided to go visit and see what it was like because it was close to where I live. I thought it was very nice, very clean. The people there were very nice and very professional. We saw an apartment, and it was basically a living room-type setup with a bathroom and shower. It had a microwave and a small, little kitchen-type thing. Then we saw a 1-bedroom apartment, and it was nice, clean, and empty. We saw the rest of the facility, and they showed us a laundry, a cafeteria facility, and a meeting room. We talked to some of the people who lived there. They really liked it there.

I find the staff at Merrill Gardens to be very friendly and helpful with my mother's overall needs. There have been a few problems with medication management, but the nursing staff addressed those problems to my satisfaction. The basic monthly cost is reasonable, but I think that the $600+ per month extra for each level of additional care is a little high. Meals and housekeeping are included in the basic cost, as is electricity, cable, and maintenance. There are plenty of activities available, Bingo and Wii Bowling, for example. A facility-owned/operated mini-bus takes residents on outings such as shopping and sight-seeing. It is also available to transport residents to medical appointments. Overall, I am satisfied with our decision to move our mother into this facility.

I recently had a situation with my mother and I wanted to Thank Merrill Gardens at Gig Harbor Retirement Comminty for going the extra mile and a half in helping me through a difficult situation with my aging mother. Everything has worked out for the best and know she is getting the best care with Merrill Gardens amazing community!
