Assisted Living Reviews for Merrill Gardens at Renton Centre

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom lives in Merrill Gardens at Renton Centre. There is nothing wrong with this community at all. It is just the cost is getting prohibitive. It’s basically independent, living but they can help with medication if you need it.

I’m now on the waiting list of Merrill Gardens at Renton. It has everything I want, and it is in Renton; my son lives a mile away. There’s a process that they put you through of which I’m still in the middle. I go to church in Burien, and if I went into Merrill Gardens, I could walk there. It is not just a retirement center; it has assisted living, so if I get to the point where I need assistance, they’re there, and I won’t have to change facilities. I had lunch there, met a number of people, and have been back three times now. One of the church members is on the staff, but I found that out after I applied. There are walking paths close by, and I’m right downtown in Renton, so I can walk around town. It has a lot of advantages, as far as I’m concerned.

I was in Merrill Gardens for about 6 weeks. I didn’t care for it. It’s regimented; it’s a bit pricey too. You feel like you’re in a sanitarium of some sort even though it’s a nice place. It’s right in the middle of downtown, and at night, the ambulance goes by and the traffic is noisy. It is right next to a bus depot that they put on one of the main streets, and it’s really loud. I have a friend that lives there, and she doesn’t care for it either. They fix what they want to fix, and they fix you your big meal at noon. If you need to go to a doctor’s appointment, they have cars that take you, and they charge $40 an hour or so.

Merrill Gardens at Renton Centre was very nice. Everything was wonderful. It was a newer site. They just opened for residency. The environment was very nice. It was like walking into a cruise boat. Everything was new and beautiful. I also saw the dining room with white linen tablecloth and people being waited on. They didn't have to get their food. There was a little salad buffet area which was definitely a step up. It was very nice in there. I have seen a lot of social people there. Right at the kitty-corner from there is the Renton Senior Center, so it is very convenient for the seniors to walk over there for activities. Everything I had seen was a plus. The location was great. The only bad thing is that they didn't have what we were looking for. They didn't have a daycare.

Merrill Gardens at Renton Centre is in central and downtown Renton so the location is close to the river. As far as the location, it may be easy for an elderly person to walk through the banks. You get to and from the grocery store being right downtown. It's a hotel, resort-type atmosphere. They have an open-ended lunch menu with an open-ended time so you don't need to go from 4pm-5pm to catch dinner. You can go anytime in the evening up until they close their dining area and order off the menu from whatever they have and whatever you want which is very different than other facilities. The most attractive feature for my parents is that they have some people they know there.

The staff at Merrill Gardens were very helpful and had been great. The rooms are excellent. The menu and food were very good. They took the residents to casinos, shows, trips, movies, entertainment, etc. They had something going on for the people everyday. However, the rate was too expensive for me.
