I visited this facility

I just walked in and looked at The Meridian at West Hills. It’s nice, has a homey feel to it. It’s kind of a gentle place; it’s not rushed and hurried. It’s quiet, and they take care of seniors well. All of the people are very nice and accommodating. The food was fine. They have everything. They have religious services, art class, movies a few times a day, bingo, and trips to various places. They have a full itinerary. The rooms are not terribly big, but they’re quiet and they’re clean and well maintained. A lot of them have their patios and balconies, which are very nice. I think they can improve in communicating with the medical management team. They seemed to have a hard time giving people the medicines that they need.
