I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom is living in her own little apartment in Merrill Gardens (Emeritus). It is a very nice-looking place. It doesn't feel like a facility at all. It just feels really like a 55 and older apartment community. They have activities for their residents. They have bingo, all kinds of card games, water aerobics, etc. They have entertainments where somebody would come in and play the piano. They have a cocktail hour once a month and activities outside that residents can sign up. They periodically go out to a restaurant together. Food is mediocre though I know my mom would prefer to eat out. Overall, my mom likes it there. I like best that she is not alone in an individual apartment somewhere without anybody knowing who she is or where she has been. If she doesn't show up, somebody would look for her, etc. For instance, at this moment, she is not in the facility. She has been hospitalized and is in a rehab right now. When I go to Merrill Gardens, somebody always asks me about her, "How's your mom?" and I like that. I like that she is part of a community and there are people wanting to know how she is. This place is very expensive for a one-bedroom apartment and the food and activities don't warrant that. Also they could do better if they have more security especially at night. I wish they could be more economically reasonable and that they could improve on the food they serve. However, my mother is comfortable there. She is with other people her age and she is happy there.

I visited this facility

If you want your love ones to be independent, this is the best place to take them. Merrill Gardens promotes independent living to it's residents to make them feel that they can do whatever they want to do and that they can still live their life on how they want it to be. They make their residents feel free and happy.

It seemed like a very nice place compared to some others. The facility was is decent shape. The staff seemed like they really cared for the people that live there. They also seemed like they had plenty of entertainment for the seniors there. One of the things I was displeased by was the food because it tasted very bland. It wasn't very good and the cafeteria staff didn't seem to be very friendly. The room where my grandfather is staying looked no different than a hotel room. I also liked the fact that they had various games for the residents throughout the week.
