I am a friend or relative of a resident

My grandmother has found a senior living care place a few days ago -- Merrill Gardens at Bankers Hill. I think it is a very nice place. It has a nice dining area. It's almost like a restaurant set-up downstairs. It is a very nice facility. All the apartments are like 600 to 800 square feet. They have a kitchenette. Also, after you go and have surgery, the nurses would come to your room for three or four days to check your vitals and your blood pressure and such. Your meals are provided with your rent. You can go downstairs in the dining room anytime of the day you want, and they'll prepare anything you want from the restaurant. It is very nice. It is not like a medical facility; it is just like a retirement living home.

The rooms and the apartments are very nice. The bedroom is very nice. It's got an overlook of almost all of downtown, so you get a nice view. From what I've seen, everyday there are shopping trips where they take the residents who can't drive out to the store. There are movie outings, outings to Balboa Park, and outings to museums around there. There are outings for them just to go out and have a picnic or walk around and go to certain shopping areas in the area. There are some very nice activities. They have a very nice library and a reading area. They even have a wine bar. They have a huge patio too. The facility is in a very nice area. The security is all closed doors except they're open during the day until 7 p.m. at night.

I visited this facility

Merrill Gardens is the one that my sister has chosen. It’s a beautiful facility, only three or four years old. The people were just fantastic; I can’t say enough about it. The gal who took us around, her name was Nenette, and she was just wonderful. We have been back twice, we went back on Saturday for brunch, and we were there yesterday around lunch. The atmosphere was very nice; the staff all seems very professional and friendly. The room that she has chosen is nice and large. It has a little patio area so that she can go outside. It’s on the first floor near the dining room. She is very excited about this place.
