Great place, but pricey.reviewed on: 11/11/2018 by Anonymous
We moved my mother in law to Merrill Gardens 6 months ago. This is a beautiful facility and extremely well maintained. She loves the food and seems quite happy. We had hoped she could live fairly independently, but has needed more care than we expected. The nursing staff apparently has total control over how much care she should have and tallies up the numbers that indicate what the cost will be. It has become quite expensive which was something we hadn't planned on. Although she does need some help physically, they up the cost based on how good they perceive her memory is. She is still pretty sharp, but it doesn't seem to matter. But all in all, I would definitely recommend it.
My Visit To The Community!reviewed on: 12/01/2016 by Anonymous
This community has a separate building for memory care. I just did not get the feeling this would work for us. The person that conducted the tour was nice and accommodating. The community seemed clean during our tour.
Overall good, but front desk staff terriblereviewed on: 09/16/2021 by A
Good housekeeping, & good food. Front desk staff are rude and unhelpful. They can help with meds but not insulin so they don’t really provide diabetic care.
A very nice place!reviewed on: 02/27/2017 by Anonymous
When I toured the Merrill Gardens at Tacoma, I noticed that the place was very nice and so were the people. When I got there for my tour, the tour guide was on time and had a lot of information for me. The place was a good choice, but we picked another community that we thought would for my mother's needs better.
