I Visited This Facility

Northgate Plaza is a beautiful facility and there are lots of windows. The only downside is there is no outdoor sitting area, but it is really well-located. It is within walking distance of Target and several restaurants, Northgate Mall, and a movie theater. The staff is very responsive and hyper-excited to have my mother join their community. The thing that impressed me the most was the level of attentiveness of the residents. It was a lot of real interaction and my mother would've had a lot of people to converse with on an intellectual level. I was impressed with the general layout of the cafeteria, which was presented more like a restaurant.

Northgate Plaza was great. It's under renovation right now, and they're making it look nicer. My friend moved into independent living. They come to your home twice a week to do your laundry and bed so that was really nice and my friend appreciates that. She gets two meals a day and a third if she wanted which she has to pay for, or she just goes to the grocery store next door. She has one big room with a kitchen and a bathroom with a walk-in shower with a seat so she can sit down when she's in there; she really likes that. The staff is great and my friend likes and enjoys the food. My friend got in while they were renovating and after they're finished, they're going to increase the prices of all the units. They offered her one month free and a lower rate, and she's guaranteed to stay at that rate forever, so that's pretty good.

I think Northgate Plaza was the perfect place for my friend. It was very beautiful. The main administrator had been wonderful, very caring, loving, and encouraging. We've had lunch twice, and they were excellent. They served healthy food and the latest diets, like Mediterranean diet.

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.

The location is great! Right across the street from Target, Northgate Mall, and many restaurants. The staff here is very sincere and caring and truly listen to what their needs are, and accommodate to their requests in best ways possible.
