Assisted Living Reviews for Merrill Gardens at Madison

July 17, 2017

I visited this facility

Merrill Gardens is a fairly new and an absolutely beautiful facility. The rooms are nice and big. There were activities where they have somebody come in every now and then to play the piano, and they have wine-tasting every night. I had lunch at their restaurant and it was wonderful. The staff that assisted me was tremendous, and I received a very good follow-up.

First of all this is the second assisted living facility that my mother-in-law has been in. We started out in a facility closer to our home but a rate increase forced us to look beyond our own back yard, so to speak. I AM SO GLAD WE DID! Without a doubt, this is one of the finest facilities that I have ever seen and experienced. The grounds, the staff, the activities and the living areas are superior to any other we have toured or my mother-in-law has lived in. It isn't just the facility that captivates you as you walk in but also the fact that residents are walking around with huge smiles on their face and engaging in conversation amongst each other as well. This is not a place where someone goes to die, this is the place where you go to LIVE!! I know it has made a huge impact on our lives and we greatly appreciate everyone who makes this possible.

Merrill Gardens at Madison was absolutely beautiful. The staff member was wonderful, very informative, and very compassionate. She gave me lots of information and insights on other places as well, and gave a really good background of the place. The place was very relaxing, pretty, and well kept. It was the nicest one I've seen. The location was perfect because it was close to the malls and the hospital.

We visited Merrill Gardens primarily for its location and the fact that they provided what we needed. What we saw was very nice, very well maintained, and organized. The place is fairly new, so everything was nice. We saw a salon and an exercise room. Overall, we were very happy with it. They were great. Our visit was wonderful. We didn't choose it because it's not the location that we need right now.

I thought Merrill Gardens at Madison was a wonderful place. I really liked it. I like the layout and the food. I like what they offered. I like what little amenities they had like they would bring you food if you were sick. They had a doctor on staff, and they could take you to doctor’s appointments. They would have somebody playing the piano. They have barbecues for the 4th of July. They had movies and church services. They just seemed to have so much to me.

I thought Merrill Gardens was very nice, very clean, and very big. We noticed the different room sizes and the common areas. You could bring a pet, if you chose to. The eating facilities seemed very nice. The staff was very hospitable, kind, and patient and were willing to sit down and answer all the questions that we had.

Merrill Gardens is absolutely perfect for Mom. It has a nice big back patio for her dog, and they help her walk her dog, which is exactly what I was looking for. The food is really good, too. She is very happy there. We put her in a two-bedroom suite, which is very large. She is able to fit her king-sized bed with two bedside tables, a dresser with a mirror, and a tall chest. There is plenty of walking room. Her two dogs’ beds are in her bedroom, too. She has a huge walk-in closet with lots of space, and her bathroom has a huge shower and lots of cabinet spaces. Her room is very accommodating and feels just like home. The restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. She can go whenever she wants. They have many breakfast foods that are available all of the time, and the food is outstanding. At night, they have several entrees, and everything is hot and really good. Also, they have three activities scheduled every day.

My mother has moved into Merrill Gardens at Madison and loves it. They have fabulous activities, it's clean, and everyone's friendly. They have open dining from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. They get to order off of a menu, so it's not like you're stuck with whatever was made that day. They have light housekeeping, and as needs change and they need more assistance, the assistant comes to them. They don't have to move from area to area. It's brand new and independent and then they have a scale that goes up as you need assistance, which they provide as well.

Merrill Gardens at Madison didn't have reserved parking, but the facility and dining room were very nice. The food was good. The people were nice, helpful, cordial, and very friendly. The apartments were very tiny. I'm not sure if you can even get a single bed in those bedrooms. Even if there was a reserved parking, we're not the only handicapped people who would be living there. Practically everybody is handicapped, so it won't be practical for us to try and live in a place like that. There isn't anything wrong with it. It just wasn't right for us.

Provider Response

Thank you for your time in providing us with this review for Merrill Gardens. We appreciate receiving this feedback regarding the parking. This is something we are looking into. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the dining room and the team members that you saw during your visit. Please reach back out to us if there are any additional questions we can answer.
