Cindy and her staff were very helpful in the process of moving my dad into assisted living. I was given advise and guidance to make the transition as easy as possible! The facility is amazing and has so many amenities! The Wellness Staff is doing an amazing job of caring for my dad as well. They are attentive and friendly every time I talk to them. I really like the personal feelings this place give. Cindy even called to check in on how things were going with things, very thoughtful!

My Mom and Dad, Gin and Jerry, sold their home on Lake Washington, Seattle and moved into The Meridian. The family decided on The Meridian after exhausted research. I can honestly say it was a wonderful decision. What a wonderful facility in the green hills of Anaheim, CA. It is like a resort; the lobby, the restaurant. My parents who have passed loved The Meridian. Staff is above description.

We saw both the independent and assisted living part of The Meridian at Anaheim Hills. It was really pretty and nice. They had a lot of activities and amenities. They have a craft room. They have music, too. They have a trail for the residents to walk. It is nice that the residents can get exercise. There are lots of trees and really nice views. The staff members were all great, too. It was a beautiful place.

Provider Response

Hi Linda, we are very happy to have provided you with such a positive experience! Your recommendation means so much to us and we're so happy to have earned it. Thank you again for taking the time to let the world know about your positive experience. Have a great day!

I visited The Meridian. They had dogs running around, dogs running into the dining room, and they were not checking people coming in and out. We almost left when we got there. The rooms smelled bad, and it was horrible. They had birds in cages in the lobby, but it was less expensive. We met the cook, and he had sauce on his shirt. It was all coming down his shirt, and it was really bad.

Provider Response

Hello Diane, I am sorry that you felt that you had a bad experience when you visited our community. We take all feedback seriously. In our Memory Care wing, one of our many activities is Dog Therapy. In this small environment, the dogs are trained to provide comfort and sensory stimulation to the residents throughout the neighborhood. The birds are an additional form of pet therapy to also promote sensory awareness. We apologize that you may have encountered any type of issue with cleanliness or unpleasant odors while you were visiting. We will continue to strive for excellence in the upkeep of the community and the training of our staff members. We appreciate your feedback.

With the environment at The Meridian at Anaheim Hills, I felt like I walked into a hotel. It gave me a different feeling. Walking down the halls, everybody had decorations out on their doors. Residents have small open spaces before their front doors and everyone was decorating them for Christmas. I love the rooms. They were very nice with lots of closet spaces. They even had full kitchens in them. They were wonderful. We had lunch at The Meridian and it was excellent. They did have a number of gluten-free patients, so they were able to accommodate me very nicely. They have a gym, so you have an opportunity to use any of the equipment in there. The lady that took us around knew the community well and answered my questions. It was very thorough. We spent quite a bit of time talking to the activities director. She does many creative things with the residents. She was very fun to talk to. Every staff member that I talked to or who helped me was topnotch, polite, and more than helpful. They have a lot to offer.

Provider Response

Barbara, we're so glad that we were able to go above and beyond your expectations! Our team strives to deliver an excellent experience, and are glad you found this to be the case during your visit. If you have further needs or questions, please reach out!

My dad is in The Meridian at Anaheim Hills. The food is outstanding. The community is nice and clean. When the marketing department offers to sell the property, they will tell you that they will do this and this, but once you are one in, you will not see them. I have been waiting for two months to have a key to my dad's room so I can get in there without needing help, but they have ignored me. He has a couple of helpers who are very nice. They do bingo a couple of times a week and have ice cream socials. My dad is doing OK there.

Provider Response

Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave us your honest feedback. We are disappointed to hear that your experience was not what you expected and we would like the chance to remedy this.

The Meridian was very nice and open. The staff was great. We had a very nice lunch. They gave me a very pleasant tour, and I liked it. I didn't have any objections, but I don't know what apartment would be available when I'm ready to move.

The Meridian at Anaheim Hills was a nice place, but it was too expensive. My parents are not able to afford that kind of thing right now. I like everything about this place. It was really like a resort for my parents. The dining area was beautiful. The whole place was just amazing. Everybody there was amazing. Like I said, it was like a resort, and it was perfect.

Meridian was great, the staff that toured me was very professional, and shared the benefits of the place. The facility was nice and clean, but it didn’t feel that it would be a fit for my husband. It felt more like a nursing home than a memory care facility.

Provider Response

The staff at The Meridian at Anaheim Hills take our reviews very seriously. We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. We are sorry to see that you rated us a 3.

I am a friend or relative of resident

For several years my family had suggested that my dad move closer to us. He did not want to leave his house; however, after visiting the Meridian he had a complete change of mind. Jaydell gave us a tour of the Meridian and invited us to stay for lunch; the food was absolutely delicious! I'm fairly certain that this was the selling point for my dad. Besides loving the food, my dad felt at home in his apartment - it was exactly what he needed. Also, the employees at the Meridian are so respectful of the inhabitants - the dining room attendants, the front desk, the housekeeping staff, and the management are friendly to anyone who walks through the front door. My dad's neighbors stated that they love their place because of the friendliness all over. The Meridian is a clean living environment with happiness on every floor.

Provider Response

Thank you for your positive review! We are very proud of our community and the exceptional level of care we provide. It means so much to us that you entrusted us with the care of your father and we are delighted that you and he are happy here! We understand what a hard decision this is for families and we want them to know that we care about your loved ones and will treat them like our own. We have a wonderful Executive Director who is very involved in the community and our residents. He and the staff and genuinely care, and it shows. We hope to see you at one of our fun events this month! We offer yoga, movies, trivia, bingo and more! Thank you again for your heartfelt and detailed review, kpurp.

Meridian at Anaheim Hills was a very large facility and had all sorts of the activities. While I was waiting in the lobby, I talked to all sorts of people who were very happy. You have to be more mobile than my mother was to be there. The staff people were very helpful, had all of the information that we needed, and made us feel very comfortable.

Provider Response

Thanks Gailjgycx, for leaving us this review. We greatly appreciate it! We have a wonderful Executive Director and staff who are very involved in the community and residents. He and the staff and genuinely care, and it shows. Our unique community has so much to offer; from pool yoga, watching movies in our theater to luxury dining and wellness programs! We hope that you find the community that best fits your mother's needs and that you are happy in the community you choose. We thank you for your consideration.

I visited The Meridian at Anaheim Hills for my dad. The facility was very nice. It was very first day of work for the lady who showed me around, but she was really nice. The facility itself was very nice and looked clean. Rooms were not huge apartments, but they were nice. I was looking at studios because of cost constraints. I don't have anything bad to say about it. The day I was there, there was a pianist doing a sing-a-long in the common area.

The room in Meridian was clean. They were going to re-carpet, and re-paint for us. We love that we won’t cook anymore, and they’re going to serve three meals a day. They served us lunch, and it was delicious. There’s plenty of activities there.

Provider Response

Thank you very much for sharing your 5 star positive review. You really made our day today. We strive to provide excellent care to our residents and their families at The Meridian at Anaheim Hills.

We’re already living in The Meridian at Anaheim Hills. My daughter chose it, but I like it very much. It’s close to where we used to live, and the number one thing is that you don’t have to buy into it. The staff is really nice, so we like them a lot. I am a happy resident. I’m very pleased, and I love the apartment. It’s a two-bedroom, two-bathroom; I love it.

My parents are at The Meridian at Anaheim Hills. It is independent living, assisted living, and memory care all in one facility. It is a very nice place. The lobby and the dining room are all very well appointed. The sales staff was very helpful and very caring. The people at the front desk are very nice. The residents seem to be very friendly to my parents. My parents are in the independent living. They're in a fine little apartment.

I already moved my mother to the Meridian at Anaheim Hills. She was living in the area and we had to move her to assisted living. We chose this place because of the price and the location. She has a remodeled room; they took a two-bedroom and split it to a single one, so the flooring, the carpet, and everything had been remodeled. The staff so far has been great. We've asked them to do a couple of extra things and pay attention to her water intake and such, and they have been really helpful with that. They are also helping her with her hearing aids, so we are satisfied thus far, and she has been there for almost two months.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we did. We hope you have a great day!

We did choose The Meridian because it was closest to where my mom lived before. The rooms were fine. The staff seemed to be pretty courteous. The activities were fine although my mom needs to get better physically before she can start participating activities. I know they do arts and crafts, they watch movies, and sometimes they have people come to the facility to demonstrate things. Right now they are remodeling their dining area, but it's good and I like it.

Provider Response

We're happy to hear you had such a positive experience with our team!

Do NOt place anyone you care about at this facility. There are too few staff,the staff is undertrained, and the communication between supervisory staff is poor at best. It looks lovely, but the care is poor. My mother, a resident, fell, fractured a femur and clavicle and the staff and management were unaware that she was injured. When she was ordered into a brace by an orthopedic doctor, the staff was not briefed on her care, or movement limitations, They removed the brace and did not seat her properly in the wheelchair. They were expecterd to read care notes. No staff meetings were held to communicate care needs.

Provider Response

Nocarehere, it's upsetting to hear that you did not receive the top-notch service we strive to provide.

Independent Living Reviews for The Meridian at Anaheim Hills

By Cherry274075

I visited this facility

The Meridian at Anaheim Hills was beautiful. It had the room I would have loved. They were very nice. It was a beautiful place, I would have loved to go there, but I thought I would be better off in the long run where I’m now. Food was very good. The dining area was a beautiful room. The Meridian at Anaheim Hills is very nice; however, I didn’t like them separating people. If you’re in a place like that and you get to a point where you need help, you have to move to a different room, and I didn’t like that idea.

Provider Response

Cherry, thank you for leaving this detailed review about your experience with our community. We hope that you are very happy in your new community and we thank you for your consideration.

By disappointed 4 Mom

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My Mom a current resident of this faciity. We have been disappointed from the minute she moved in. One the day my mom moved in I left my purse in the dining room and went back to retrieve it a couple of hours later to find no one had seen it. When it was discovered later that day in another area of the facility, the $300 cash was missing. Administration responded by sending me to Anaheim police to file a claim. Did not verbalize to me any responsibility. Lack of responsibility to residents has been a continuing theme I have observed in the time since then. Activities are posted that imply the facility is organizing and supervision them, but most all of these are private activities organized by residents with 'pre-determined participants'. A resident is not free to show up at the listed time and in as the bridge, or other games/ card games already have an organized group. It is hard for a new comer to find things to do when the facilities does not oversee these activities themselves to see that all interested residents get the chance to play. Food is mediocre, lacking freshly cooked vegetables. No food can be removed to be taken back to snack on later in there own unit. Several times hot water has been missing for several days at a time so residents cannot bath except in cold water - isn't there a health law about this?? Recently an elevator was down for an extended time and some residents were 'trapped' on their floor because they could not use stairs and only one elevator per floor. I could go on and on with many other disappointing aspects of this facility. My suggestion - stay away!

Provider Response

Hi Disappointed 4 Mom, thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent experience. We are disappointed to hear that you are not satisfied with your visit.

The Meridian is my mom's choice because she likes it and thinks she would fit to it best. It is as nice place and they seem to have a lot of happy people there. Their rooms are larger than most of the facilities and it has a separate bedroom. It is more of a senior living, but it has assisted living attached to it so you can pay for what you need.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We're happy we could meet your expectations! Thanks again for the recommendation, and have an amazing day!

I visited this facility

This is a great facility. We had the option of choosing a studio, one bedroom, or two bedroom. We ended up choosing a one bedroom place. It's a comfortable place, with a kitchen and a nice living room area with a TV. I also spent some time with my grandpa at the gym. They have some nice treadmills, so we went for a 2 mile run. There were some scheduled activities, too, such as a bingo community activity, but we chose to opt out of this one because I wanted to spend some individual time with my grandfather. Overall, it's a pretty happy place and my grandfather and I both like it.

Provider Response

We appreciate your positive review about your experience.

I had a professional tour of this facility and was most impressed with the warm/cozy feel of the environment. It is located in a beautiful, safe community that is family oriented. The interior is beautiful and ver homelike. As you walk down the hallways, you see beautiful paintings on the walls and the carpeting is very tasteful.. They are upgrading the rooms and I saw the old and new rooms. The rooms are spacious with nice views of lush gardens. The area is very quite and perfect for older people. There is a shopping center accross the street to include CVS pharmacy and Fresh & Easy Market. I was in the independent living section and observed how happy the resident's looked. It was dinner time and the food smelled really good. The piano was playing during dinner and it seemed like a real social expreience. Family members were present in the dining room, sharing a meal with their loved one.I would highly recommend this facility. I left with a really good feeling.
