Truewood by Merrill – Reviews
About a year ago we started looking for an assisted/independent living facility for my mom, who was starting to need more help with daily activities. We did a lot of research online and then visited several options within about 30 miles. Some of the places were very depressing and were immediately crossed off the list. Many of them seemed very “institutional” with long, long hallways that made for quite a walk from the resident’s room to the shared living areas. Most of them had very large dining rooms that reminded me of school cafeterias where meals were served to a hundred or more people at a time. We were starting to get discouraged when someone suggested that we check out Truewood by Merrill in Venice. We scheduled an appointment with Chetta Cometa, the Community Relations Director, and went for a visit. The difference between Truewood and the facilities we had seen previously was striking. At Truewood the atmosphere was upbeat and friendly. The decor was homelike and cozy. The rooms were grouped into neighborhoods of 12 rooms each and each neighborhood had its own living room, kitchen and dining room. They had a lot of daily activities posted such as shopping trips, crafts, etc. The staff was friendly and the residents seemed happy and engaged. We had found a place for Mom! It has now been almost a year since Mom moved into Truewood in Venice and she is very happy, which means her family is also very happy! She has made many friends and is always busy with the activities. She loves the “neighborhood” concept. Eating her meals in the dining room with her neighbors is something she especially enjoys and she has gotten to know them all quite well. She also tells me that the food is excellent. My sister is the administrator of an assisted living facility up north so she is very familiar with the day to day workings of a senior living community. When she came down to visit she said that she was very impressed with Truewood. As the daughter of a Truewood resident she can see how happy Mom is. As a professional in the field of senior living she can see how well the facility is run. For years I had been dreading the time when we would need to find a place for Mom. When we found Truewood by Merrill in Venice we hit the jackpot. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for senior living.
Our Mom moved in at the beginning of October (2 & 1/2 weeks ago). She is adjusting really well and everyone at the community from the Executive Director, Sales person, Reception Desk, Nursing staff, Activities and Maintenance, and food & beverage staff have been just GREAT. Everyone has gone out of their way to help my mom get adjusted and feel at home
My husband recently moved into Truewood, and so far I’m very pleased with the care he’s receiving.
Warm outgoing staff. I felt welcome when I entered the door!
Everyone of the staff is wonderful and always very helpful!! Sunset Lake Village is a very family orientated facility. The staff takes great care of the residents and their families!!
The Lord blessed me with a job here at sunset Lake village and I am so grateful. Thank you Lord.
So far so good . Staff could not be nicer if they tried. Well run.
During such a difficult time of quarantine I have the greatest respect for the management and staff whose spirit and care shines through daily. Their dedication and commitment to keeping everyone safe, healthy and happy are amazing. The building, common area and residences are kept spotless and extremely clean. The only suggestion would be to have a daily variety of fresh fruits and vegetables for both enjoyment and nutrition.
Great staff that really cares about the residents. Fun place.
My MOM is there friendly people and great staff. Food is average. Very clean place and caring place

We have so appreciated the leadership team and their dedication to the residents. They have made my folks feel at home and well cared for. I would highly recommend this facility to others
Great place. My aunt lives in there and the staff in great
My mom lives here at Sunset Lake Village. She moved in on Feb. 6th of this year! Our mom means the world to us eight children and 22 grand and great grand children. Having our mom move out of her own place and into a ALF was one of the hardest decision our mom and us kids had to make! The administration and staff of Sunset Lake Village has made moms transition so heartwarming and comforting. The caregivers are beyond wonderful to our mom. Us kids spend a lot of time with our mom at Sunset and I have grown to love moms caregivers I see them as friends! I know in my heart that each day that I say good bye to mom until tomorrow it gives me a happy heart to know her caregivers will care for her as if she was their mom. Thats the best feeling a kid could have! Thank you Sunset Lake Village for your expertise!
Great convenient safe area
My dad was their for 3 years. My sister and I got to know the staff and nurse very well. They really care, and love the people that live their. When the hurricane came through in 2017, they were so well prepared. We felt our dad was safer their, than where we were at. Dad also loved living their. My sister and I would take dad to her house for the holidays and afterwards he'd say, I want to go home now. That's how much he loved living their! Dad had to go into the hospital and when he came back home he was so happy! When he saw the nurse he lit up! Held out his arms for a hug! He did pass away. Everyone was so helpful to my sister and me afterwards. If your thinking of bringing your loved 1 here, you've found their home!!! Itll also be your 2nd home!
Beautiful Assistant living facility. I would of loved to moved in myself.
Good place to work
Awesome place to work
The staff at Sunset Lakes are very caring and sensitive to the needs of the residents. My mother is in the memory care and I have been very pleased with her care. I recommend Sunset Lakes if you are looking for a place for your loved one!
