Assisted Living Reviews for Truewood by Merrill, Riverchase

River Highlands of Birmingham was excellent. We liked everything about it. The people were friendly. When you walk in, there was someone at the reception desk. Everything was clean. It was more like a nice hotel; it was very nice. They have lots of activities. I would have loved to have my cousin go there, but we decided it was more than he could pay at this time. The location was great. It was just right up the road from where we live. The people were very nice. They have a media center, a TV room where they watch movies, a café where they can come and order their food from a menu, a small library, and a small garden in the back where you can go and sit out and commune with nature. Their rooms were nice and large. The bathrooms were large. They have a big closet, which is also awesome. They have a big calendar with events; it was like a newsletter that they give out every week. They take trips to Wal-Mart or Target. It was a great place. The person who helped me was actually filling in that day, but she was knowledgeable. Just looking at the menu, it was great. The place itself was very well maintained.

River Highlands of Birmingham is large. The people are nice, but the place is institutional. The dining room was just a bunch of long tables and a buffet. The staff was very friendly, nice, and showed me around.

River Highlands of Birmingham is part of a large assisted living area. It was modern and much more expensive than the other community. It's probably worth it for the location and for the nice things they have there. We went specifically through the memory care; I like its layout. The dining area was very modern, very updated, and very clean. The person who accommodated me was very helpful and very knowledgeable. She had only been there for a few weeks at that time, but she had a lot of experience in assisted living.

River Highlands is a nice place, I liked it, and I was impressed. When you walk in, there’s a big room that’s well decorated. They’ve got courtyards. The memory care wing is under renovation and is not yet completed, so I had to take out my reservation.

River Highlands of Birmingham was a beautiful facility with a beautiful garden outside. The rooms were nice and spacious. The whole facility area was nice. The cost was high for us, but it was very nice. The staff was very knowledgeable about what we needed, very kind, and interested to know the type of person that they're trying to provide for. It was a good experience.
