The memory care wing at Merrill Gardens at Tacoma was in a separate, locked facility. If you need memory care, then you have to move into that wing. The memory care wing was very nice and didn't seem like a prison at all.

Merill Gardens is very nice, clean, and I really liked it. The staff is very nice. The only problem is they don't have vacancy. They have a waiting list, and the price is a lot more than everybody else. It's very nice and very quiet but lively. The people there are all happy. Their dining area is nice. They serve three meals, and you can eat anytime. The rooms are very nice because they are so expensive.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I am in Merrill Gardens at Tacoma. It is a lovely, very nice building with friendly and helpful people. The food is very good. I will certainly recommend it. My only drawback is that when my son brought me here, I asked them about the carpet because somebody has lived here before, and I asked them to clean it. They said they would either replace or clean it, but I do not think they did either one. I am very unhappy about that.

My mom is on a waiting list at Merrill Gardens at Tacoma. It’s a newer facility and had a chef instead of institutional food. The people were friendly. It’s big, clean, beautiful, and awesome, and had a lot of activities.

It was very clean, and the curb appeal was beautiful. The people that we came in contact with were very courteous and helpful. We went and visited one of the cottages, and the gentleman that lived there was very helpful. It was very nice and large. We went to one of the apartments there also. The dining facility was beautiful. Merrill Gardens at Tacoma was the one that we liked the most out of all that we saw.

It was very nice. The people were helpful and friendly, but the rooms were very small. I looked at different places that had cottages, which I was not interested in. I have some friends living there, and they're very happy there. I tasted their food, and it was very good. Merrill Gardens at Tacoma was attractive and comfortable.

Merrill Gardens was the best well-kept place and closest to my home. The staff was very friendly, the food was very good, and most of the residents were busy especially those who are able.

Merrill Gardens at Tacoma is just perfect for my husband's cousin, and it is just very nice. They have very good food, and he's got a bachelor apartment. I just figure it is a very happy place. I would recommend this place. In fact, my sister has moved in there. It is very clean, and the first floor is like a hotel; it is beautiful.

Merrill Gardens was very popular and nice facility. It was very clean and the quality of their food was really good. They had a lot of activities for the residents. They had music entertainment every Friday and had happy hour for the people there. Their hospitality to their guests was way up there. However, it would be too big for my friend and didn't attract my friend that much. They also had different floors and they would have to find a floor where she wouldn't have to go up and down. My friend also had a second fall that did more damage in her brain and Merrill Gardens came to see her, but they said she needed more intense help that they could offer. They were more of an independent living and she needed a 24-hour care.
