I am a friend or relative of a resident

Merrill Gardens is independent and assisted living. It’s modern and clean in appearance. It’s kind of like in the city, so there aren’t any grounds at all actually. The rooms are just very modern and updated. It’s very appealing, has an attractive look to it and is clean. I know my parents are not too crazy about the food though. They’re very caring, competent, and just very engaged with the residents. My folks are very very happy. However, I don’t like the point system that they use. Depending on how many services the resident requires, like if they have their medicine expensed to them, if they need assistance with their bath, getting down to the dining room, and every service that the resident has, they accumulate points. And those points are added to the cost translated to dollars. The more services you use the more points you accumulate and more you pay.

From Merrill Gardens at Bankers Hill

Merrill Gardens at Bankers Hill gives discerning seniors a casual elegance and sophistication found only in the prestigious Bankers Hill neighborhood of downtown San Diego. Downtown retirement living has never been this good – or as much fun – as it can be at Merrill Gardens!

Merrill Gardens at Bankers Hill is just a short stroll from fine dining, quaint Victorian homes and Balboa Park. Symphony Hall and the Civic Theater are also nearby, and the community is just minutes from top-ranked physicians, clinics and hospitals. Our rooftop deck offers views of the ocean and city, and the apartments are spacious. Most have full kitchens, balconies, washers and dryers.

And while the community is second to none, the residents who choose to live here make the community truly unique. Residents take advantage of the salon, bistro, fitness center, multiple gathering spaces, secure underground parking and landscaped courtyard areas.
