I Visited This Community

Upon arriving at Merrill Gardens in Willow Glen, I was impressed by the beautiful living room area to the right of the entry.  It is large and bright and was in use by several groups of residents visiting and reading.  Kay, the receptionist greets everyone like a special guest while at the same time making sure to keep track of who is coming and going from outside.  Although lunch was past, many residents lingered in the dining room chatting.  The staff were exceptionally kind and attentive to the residents and seemed to offer just the right amount of assistance.  The apartments are very bright and spacious with full, modern looking kitchens, lots of windows and patios.  This seems to be a busy community with a lot of residents and visitors coming and going and a very engaged staff.   There are several events planned for each day, including shopping excursions, pool competitions and craft groups.

I have visited on a couple of occasions and have yet to get past the front desk. The receptionist is always very pleasant and as helpful as possible. Once a marketing brochure is passed over the desk, there is not much left to say. The facility appears pleasant and has a nice curb appeal, but beyond that, I have nothing else.
