Assisted Living Reviews for Truewood by Merrill, Ocean Springs

By M Dickinson

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

I have been taking care of a resident for approximately one and a half years-running errands for him, taking him to the doctor, etc. I interact with the staff at The Gardens almost daily. They are always patient with the residents, very caring, and very friendly. I know quite a few of the residents, and they are always laughing and joking with me and others. Obviously, they are happy here!

The staff at The Gardens is very attentive. My mother is extremely happy there, and she has met friends. She enjoys the food, and they're very helpful in bringing her a plate because she gets really nervous in the cafeteria, but they do make sure they bring her a plate, and the food seems to be fine. It's conveniently located to my sister and myself, and when we got there, we liked it; there really was no need to go any place else.

The Gardens has been providing excellent care for a family member for well over 3 years. I highly recommend the facility as management and staff are very friendly and do an outstanding job. Many of the rooms are fairly new as they recently expanded about two years ago. There are also plenty of activities for residents and fantastic meals. I definitely recommend The Gardens Senior Assisted Living Home.

The Gardens Assisted Living has simply put, made a huge difference in my Parents (Ernie and Adele's life and in our families life. I live in Savannah and knowing they are taking care of is huge to me. My dad was supported and encouraged to get his VA Benefit which has helped hugly. From Jodi, the GM, to Shrika the head Nurse to all the staff, they are the best, it did not start that way. What changed, new Ownership and Jodi's Leadership! I can't say enough about it. She is the best!!! Warm Regards to all, Robert, CPM

The Gardens took wonderful care of my grandparents. The service was great and had a very friendly staff! They definitely felt like they were at their home away from home!

Made us feel welcome from the first day. Entry process was easy, everything was explained and I was assured they could answer any questions any time. Administration and Staff were exceptional and easily accessible. I feel comfortable having my wife at this facility.

We were in a bind, and we knew the owners of The Gardens, and they were able to accommodate us immediately. It really worked out well and we were very happy with it. We got my parents an apartment. I really enjoyed the food, and I sat with them for a meal. People come in and play music, they have games like Bingo, and they have movie nights and church services.

I visited this facility

I went to The Gardens at Ocean Springs and it is very nice and very professionally-run facility. They have nice accommodation and nice dining room. They play bingo, do sing-a-longs, but my mother is not a social person. She has dementia so it’s not really the place suited for her. If I was an elderly, I could move in here and I could mingle with other people.
