    The Meridian Westland is a high rise building community that offers graduated services from independent living all the way up to skilled nursing care. Completely enclosed, including the entries to the apartments, residents never have to worry about the weather outside since the entire building is enclosed. In case of an emergency there is a nurse on site 24 hours a day 7 days a week as well as other staff. Their Bistro is open all the time so if a residents miss a meal they can always pick up something to eat there. Cherry Hills Village is only a mile away and the community offers transportation free of charge to community residents.

    We toured the Westland Meridian and were horrified at what we saw. It has a deceptive price because everything including your heating/utilities is not included in the price. The food is worse than the food in a college dorm. It is in an area of town where nothing is around. Activities are not interesting. VERY DISAPPOINTED

    The Westland Meridian has recently been remodeled and is a lovely community with bright open space in the lobby for people to gather. There are choices for the residents with a variety of floor plans and a wide range of activities and social events.

    In my interactions with staff I found them to be friendly, accommodating and focused on the residents.

    If you or a family member are considering a transition to a retirement community give the staff at Westland Meridian a call for a tour and learn more about what this great community has to offer.
