Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Meridian

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We moved my mother just a short time ago to Wynwood of Meridian, and so far, all is working out well. The staff are very caring, and the food is good. It isn't a huge place; it's intimate, nice, and not overwhelming. The rooms are kept beautifully clean. It has a very warm atmosphere when you walk in. She is in an efficiency -- a large room with a large closet and a big private bath with lots of railings. There are cords in the bathroom, her sitting area, and bedroom where if she needs assistance, she can pull it. They provided some furniture, but my mother wanted her own things. She had some bedroom furniture and her chair put in, and they accommodated that very well. It is very clean, and every time I've been in there, it's always vacuumed and dusted. It's decorated with good taste. She seems happy there. They have special music programs come in, and they show movies. They have a card group, a knitting group, a walking group, a book group, a group for writing stories, and a sing-along group. There's something for everybody. There's a courtyard outback where the residents can get outside and enjoy the nice weather, and they even allow them to help with some gardening. They take the residents on outings, and they have doctors that come in. The staff is very kind and yet professional. She has been there for about six weeks, and so far, we've been pleased.

Brookdale Wynwood was a very nice place. Russel didn't like it, but I did. It was private home with 5 or 6 people in it, and I thought it would be great, but he was not interested in that. It's not for me; it's for him.

The staff at Wynwood Meridian is cheerful, friendly, very upbeat, and helpful. The rooms mom is in were decorated very well and were remodeled this year. It has one large room and a separate bathroom. The dining rooms are more like tea rooms, and each floor has their own dining room. It was funny as mom complained that the food portion was small, but she put that she wanted small portions on her intake, and I told her to change it. She hasn't complained about it since, and she thinks the food is fine. They have people come in, like piano players and singers. They have special Sunday movies and popcorns. They have a nice big popcorn machine there. They do special activities, life stories, and reading. When it's not below zero, they have outings. The place is secured. However, I wish there was more people at the front desk when we go in and out because I can go in and out during the day. Sometimes there's not a lot of people at the front desk, and once it gets dark it's locked.

I looked at Wynwood of Meridian and saw what it was like. I thought it was very nice looking. I checked the room out; it was OK and I thought it was spacious. They don't have a dining room, because they had a dining area in each of the different rooms there and lounges. I saw the residents doing some crafts and painting. I thought the place was fairly safe.

Visited this facility with my mom as we are looking for an assisted living facility. The place had a very homey feeling. Staff and residents were very friendly and welcoming. Facility offers a variety of activities. Thus said we had a concern about cleanliness. The carpets in the hallways and especially stairs needed vacuuming. I used a stairway in the back of the building leading to the beautiful back courtyard and it looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in weeks. There is an odor of urine outside a couple of the residents rooms. There are several intimate dining areas but the floors are not cleaned after meals. We saw food and spills on the floors. Because of these concerns we are looking elsewhere.

Wynwood is very nice. Everyone is very friendly. It's not geared for my mother. I think it's for people who are a little bit more independent. The rooms are generously-sized, and they are very clean. The furnishings are pleasant.

My mom came up from Florida and I went to lunch with her during Valentine's Day at Wynwood of Meridian. They had an excellent meal. They have a chef on site and a dietician. It was very nice. They've been more than accommodating. The people I've worked with so far are very personable. They have all kinds of social activities including cards, physical activities, somebody comes in and does the hair and nails and arts and crafts. They have a gym, too. It has the level of care that we need, and it is affordable. This is our favorite from all the places we've toured.

I am/was a resident of this facility

The location of Wynwood of Meridian is very nice. I chose it because it's close to a friend's house and I needed a place where I can take my dog. The people are very nice and the staff is terrific. They have different areas for dining and the food is delicious. The rooms are pretty nice, but the bathrooms are not very good because it's too small that you wouldn't be able to use your wheelchair around it easily. They have exercises every morning. It's a beautiful facility, but not very handicapped friendly.

Wynwood of Meridian was a very nice place and accessible to services she needed like medical and shopping centers. They had different activities and things for the residents to do. Although I hadn't tried their food, I saw that it looked good and they had a nice variety. The room was a little small for my aunt's purposes since she had a lot of stuff from her hobbies. Otherwise, the size was perfectly adequate. I would have been happy if my aunt stayed there.
