Assisted Living Reviews for The Meridian at Waterways

November 09, 2016

By Fred134410

I visited this facility

I will move to Symphony after five weeks. It’s a brand-new building, it’s eight stories, they have three dining rooms, and any resident can go to any dining room anytime and any day. There’s a memory care on the fifth floor. They have a full-time concierge, a car to take you anywhere, and a movie theater with a 70-inch screen. The eighth floor is a place where you can order drinks, and this is open to the public.
