I visited this facility

Meridian Arvada is pretty much the same as the others. It has one-bedroom apartments for seniors with one bathroom, living room, and a kitchen. They're very nice.

My mother and father-in-law have been in The Meridian for two months now. They can eat anytime they want, they can get whatever is on the menu at any time, the food was very good. They don't have to be seated with all the other people. It's a beautiful facility, newer than the other ones that I looked at. It's a 1-bedroom and we finally got them down to about $4000 a month. It was a little bit higher than we would have wanted but they still worked with the Veterans program but it's certainly expensive. The room has a kitchenette. They have wonderful staff, very nice people. The clients can walk anywhere and the park there is just beautiful. They have exercise activities everyday. They have yoga, tai chi and some sort of physical activity everyday, then they have organized outings to go to the casino.

I visited this facility

I think Meridian is a fairly new facility and building are very nicely done. The interior had a very pleasant look. The place is clean. The surroundings had open grass where it went up a hill so there wasn’t much ground. It had a fence. The staff were great and they were able to call me back and followed up. I had the impression that people were older than I was so I didn’t go further with looking at the facility.

The place is very clean. We went there and it seemed very comfortable. All of the patients that I spoke were very happy to be there. They have different activities for everybody. All of the staff members from the front desk down to the orderlies were very friendly. They were so willing to work with you no matter what stage the parents/residents are in. I'm very happy with our tour at the Meridian.

I've been a resident at The Meridian Arvada for about 2 months now; and I couldn't be more pleased. I looked around quite a bit before here and none of them could compare to here both in price and excellent staff and friendly residents. It has a homey feeling that you won't find anywhere else. So if you're still looking for a place to stay, stop wasting your time and come to The Meridian Arvada.

The Meridian Arvada deserves a 5 star rating and more. The staff is friendly and always helpful, the food is wonderful, and there are always activities that interest me both in the community as well as outside activities. I love the fact that if I want to have lunch at 3 pm I can. I didn't like the fact that many other communities have set dining hours and I have to eat on their schedule and not mine. The apartments are large, have plenty of storage, and I have a wonderful view of the park and creek. It is very peaceful.

”Friendly helpful staff” –“ Delicious food!” – These were my son and daughter’s first impressions when they visited Meridian Arvada and enjoyed a Sunday brunch. They also had a tour of the public areas, and noticed how clean and well-maintained the rooms were. And then, on the basis of what they said, I moved cross-country and rented one of the apartments they viewed! They were right. Meridian Arvada is classy and well maintained. The meals are terrific, and the apartment I rented is lovely, and both are just what I wanted and needed for the next part of my life’s journey.
