Truewood by Merrill, First Hill – Reviews
Merrill Gardens, First Hill is a comfortable, inviting place to live. The patios, dining room, and other meeting rooms are enjoyable places to visit with friends and participate in activities.. The staff is helpful and bring a sense of joy to their work and this environment. I have lived here two years and I am glad to call this place home.
WE LIVED IN SEATLE AND BAINBRIGE ISLAND. DO YOU HAVE A WAITING LIST? CAN YOU PUT US ON IT. WE ARE NOW IN ARIZONA AND WE WANT TO GET AWAY FROM THE HOT CLIMATE HERE.
***** 5 star rating for Merrill Gardens at First Hill in Seattle. My mother-in-law moved into this senior living community in June 2017 at age 92. The staff takes excellent care of her, and I enjoy having delicious and healthy meals in the dining room. My family reserves the private dining room for special occasions when we have a large group. There are always beautiful flowers to welcome people at the entrance and the front desk staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There are several activities offered daily and it's easy to have their shuttle transport the residents to appointments.
Better than being at Grandmas! Staff A+ Food A+ Accomodations A+ Extremely well cared for A++ Just perfect!
We chose this program for our Mother. It offered the type of programs that would offer our Mom a very attractive facility, good menu, and strong staff. In visiting each time, we noted the activities constantly present for residents. It was one of the facilities that seemed to walk their talk; demonstrating their ability to keep residents engaged in their environment. We were especially attracted to the diversity of not only staff but also the residents. In looking at all of the programs, the populations diversity was what helped to cement our decision.
So far so good with my Dad. Friendly staff. Food available in dining room 7 am to 7 pm. Room costs lower than other places I looked. A number of activities each day.
Great location close to all the major health care providers (VM, Swedish, GH, Polyclinic, HarborView) and very close to the downtown retail core. Minor Avenue (the front door) is a wonderfully small, tree lined street...however the street is quite steep. The size of the facility is perfectly intimate, not large and impersonal like many facilites we toured. Staff is courteous and helpful. Staff ratio to tenants appears to be appropriate.
