We went and toured The Meridian at Lake San Marcos. The facility was a little over a year old, so it was very new. They had different types of living arrangements, like independent living, assisted living and memory care, so it kind of covered all the senior needs. We toured the assisted living facility. Everything was included. It had three meals a day. They had very helpful, very friendly and knowledgeable staff there. They were good at first impressions. The cost seemed to be very reasonable. We looked at one-bedroom unit with a bedroom and living area. They had a large walk-in closet. It had a single bathroom with a walk-in shower and it had amenities for people with disabilities to walk in and had their shower or off to the toilet area. They also had a little kitchenette area. It didn’t generally come with an oven or a stove, but you could have a microwave. It ranged anywhere from 600 square feet to around a thousand square feet for the one bedrooms. It had also a wide range of sizes and of course, the price would differ for each size. They had a number of activities scheduled during the day. They actually used the touch screen monitors in the hallways, near the dining area and actually in your own room, where you can see as to what activities were going on during the day. So, you don’t have to actually to go look at a bulletin board. They were high-tech.
The dining room was beautiful. They had three dining areas all on the first floor. If you were living in the independent living, you were on a meal plan where you had to pay for your meals as you eat them. If you were in the assisted living or memory care, it was included in the cost of your rent for the month and you could eat any time of the day. There were three meals provided. It was not scheduled. You could come and eat whenever you wanted. There was a lot of flexibility on the kind of foods you would have. They had their standard menu and you would have two different specials for the day that they offered. From what I saw in the menu themselves, they were very good cuisine. They had a liquor license, so they could serve wine or liquor on the premises. They had a small outdoor pool that the residents could use. They had a room that actually looked like a theater where there were theater seats.
