Assisted Living Reviews for Meridian of West Hills

April 25, 2017

By Virginia258745

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

I ended up putting my dad in the Meridian at West Hills. He has only been there for a few months, but I don’t have any complaints. So far, he’s been happy. We picked the location because he has lived in the area for 30 years. He kind of does his own thing, but he also does some of the activities; he likes the music appreciation and the yoga. The only negative I have is that it is a little on the older side.
