Reviews for Merrill Gardens

  • The Creekside - A Merrill Gardens Community

    Overall Rating
    Review by CC
    Current resident

    This is truly a five-star facility with a staff which is well-trained, young, energetic, helpful, and smiling.

    Activities are numerous, well-planned, and professionally managed although outside adventures seem to take precedence over inside programs better suited to the physical and financial needs of the current residential population.

    Food is exceptional, prepared under the direction of a professional chef for any-time dining. The daily menu includes three featured entrees plus half a dozen standard options (deli, grilled chicken or fish, quiche, burger, etc).

    On site care is available (but not included in rental rates) and a real plus is an exceptional paramedic unit just minutes away. The facility is relatively new and has full kitchens and laundry in each apartment. On-site maintenance is readily available.

    Overall, The Creekside is a great retirement community...the apartment is home but when you step out the door there is a feeling of being in a comfortable resort with a caring staff and congenial residents. Prices are competitive but are lower than for comparable accommodations which I considered before relocating here several years ago.

    This brand new community is not only beautiful but gracious in the welcoming of its new residents. We recently moved a family into this community - and while it could have been a challenge given the many other families moving in at the same time, the team at Merrill Gardens was outstanding in communicating with both us and the family to make sure that we had clear directions necessary to make our move in successful and with the least amount of anxiety. Our family is over the moon with this community. The team here is outstanding. The community itself beautiful.

    Merrill Gardens at Bankers Hill is one of the newest Senior Living Communities. For those of independent means that what the night life that Downtown San Diego, The Gaslamp, Theater, Bankers Hill, Hillcrest, and much more has to offer, Merrill Gardens is a fabulous location for you. It is close to San Diego Airport and many of the best that San Diego has to offer such as Old Globe. For a more active individual that would enjoy being close to it all, Merrill Gardens may be the right fit.

    This is a lovely community and well located near doctors and hospitals. There is also shopping nearby and regular shuttles to meet residents' needs. It is light and bright in the public spaces and has nicely appointed apartments.

    This is a fairly new facility and most of the staff are very caring. Common areas are kept in good condition but individual apartments may have problems. My apartment has carpets which are worn, soiled and stained. We only recently moved here and the carpet should have been replaced before we moved in.

  • Sunwest Village, A Merrill Gardens Community

    Overall Rating
    Review by Local Professional
    Visitor

    This community is situated on 40 acres, and is a very active, vibrant senior living community, with meals and activities included. Their staff is top-notch, and they are always striving to provide the best in all areas of service to their residents. They have an abundance of activities, both onsite and offsite. The variety of living accommodations are wonderful - from 1 and 2 bedroom apartments and 2 Bedroom villas for independent folks or those who may only need a bit of homecare services, to a lovely assisted living setting with very large studio apartments, and a separate memory care area for those in need of dementia and Alzheimers care. This is a wonderful community!

    We toured and had dinner. What a wonderful staff. The location is great for me and my husband.

    We visited many retirement communities and Merrill Gardens Northgate Plaza is the best. The food is outstanding and there are tons of activities.

    We put our house on the market and moved in.

    We are very happy.

    I have had several clients at this property. The care has consistently been good and the staff are knowledgeable and caring. Although it is an older property, it is well maintained. They also offer multiple levels of care which allows a resident to transition from more independent care to complete care as their needs increase.

    This is a favorite among retirement communities. This beautiful Merrill Gardens community is in the heart of Kirkland. This community is a block from the farmers Market and also from the waterfront. Close by they offer great dining and shopping experiences all within a very short walk from the apartments. A very vibrant and active community to live in.

    Mountlake Terrace Plaza is an older community with a warm homelike feeling when you walk in the front door. They offer Large 1 and 2 bedroom apartments with full kitchens. Excellent chef and "anytime dining" program, friendly staff, a full activity calendar of activities offered. This is a great place for those with moderate incomes. A hidden treasure and close to shopping in a quiet neighborhood.

    Review by Bev Holstad daughter of resident
    Family or friend of a resident

    I spent a month going for onsite visits to 7 different Assisted Living Places. I found that Merrill Gardens at Northgate met all our expectations and more. The staff was patient, friendly and answered all my questions. Believe me I had a lot of questions. What made this place stand out was how happy the residents were. It was the only place where the residents readily engaged in conversation with me and they were always smiling. They all liked this place. We tried the food and found it would be to mom's liking. Also again, everytime I visited the dining room, the residence were ingaged in lively conversation. Several of the other places, the residents didn't smile and were very subdued. We moved mom in on March 16th of this year. Mom immediately like it. She told everyone how much she liked it. She liked the staff, the food and the other residence. We did it right and were so glad. I also liked the price and the open concept for eating. The Activity director (Sandra) is the very best. She is so kind and patient with all the residence. She comes up with fun activities. She hugs my mom. My mom just said today again how much she likes those hugs. Sandra and mom one day started singing and dancing in the hallway. They did this all the way down the hall. At the end there were a bunch of residence that joined in. This was so inpromptu and made mom so happy.
    Just to let you know it took us 5 months to get mom moved out of her home. She was so angry with us for making her come to assisted living. Within 2 weeks, mom had a smile on her face and talked to everyone. I was so relieved that I found the perfect place for her to be safe and happy.
