Assisted Living Reviews for The Pines, A Merrill Gardens Community

Merill Gardens was great and probably where we’ll place my mom because we liked it a lot. The dining area was open all day, and there aren’t set hours to eat. They had all kinds of activities, needlework, crafts, computers, and exercise classes. They had a hair salon where mom can go twice a week for $50 total to have her hair shampooed and set. They can stay in their room and do not have to move even if they require additional care.

I visited this facility

The Pines was a new building that had a very nice entrance and excellent outdoor spaces. Mobility for residents was really good. There weren't a lot of wheelchairs. It had very nice views. The rooms were on the small side. They had a library. The food was nice, hot, and good. The open spaces were nice, and the residents were participatory. The grounds were very well kept and nice.

I visited this facility

I visited Merrill Gardens probably once every two or three months. My daughter lived in close proximity, so I spent time with her, then went to Merill Gardens to have a meal and meet with my lady friend. The dining area was very good. The food was well presented with a really balanced menu throughout the week. It had good service.

The Pines is a brand-new facility that looks like a gorgeous, five-star hotel. They have lovely dinners there. As for the staff, you couldn’t ask for them to be more personable. They’re very good with my dad and keep the rooms clean. His room is small, but he did insist on having his queen-size bed, so that’s his fault. I definitely recommend this community.

After visiting 7 places, we decided on this one for our Mom. We loved the 7-7 dining, and the warm and beautiful atmosphere. I think the main reason for us was that they had a nurse on duty at all times. The desk reservationists was So nice. Lots of activities and the shuttle service were a real plus.

I didn’t meet any of the staff at The Pines -- just the representative that showed us around. The place was kind of cold. It really wasn’t as good as the other facilities I have visited. Plus, it was too expensive. They have meals all day, so you are never going to meet anyone unless you go at the same time. I just really didn’t like the whole atmosphere.

My father-in-law is in The Pines. It just opened, so it is a brand-new facility, and it's place where you can walk away and feel good about it after. We have been pleased. It was a work in progress in the beginning for him being in a facility for the very first time. We needed one with memory care because that will be needed in the future. They have sitting areas outside, but the trees and landscaping are not fully developed yet because it is brand new. The room itself is a very nice room. He has a nice sitting area, a bedroom, a full size fridge, a little counter, and a bathroom with easy access in and out of the shower. He loves the food; it's delicious, and the presentation is really nice, like a restaurant. They have a lot of activities that he participates in, like outings.

The Pines was brand new, and nobody has moved in yet, so everything was perfect. There were no residents when I went, and its furniture hasn’t even been delivered. There was one woman that helped me, and she was very friendly and very helpful. They had the dining room, the piano was supposed to be delivered -- so they had that common area -- and I think there was a beauty shop there too. It seemed they have movie nights and transportation if you need to go some place.
