Customer Reviews

Wonderful place to be!

You could not ask for a sweeter group of people staff & residents! My mom was welcomed in like family. The facility is beautiful, not like a stylish 5 star hotel. The food is really good & there’s lots of entertainment & options for outings!

Merrywood is a fantastic place in which to retire.

The residents at Merrywood are friendly, outgoing and very interesting. There is much lively conversation at meal times!
Staff members are always outgoing and positive. There is a lot of laughter! We're called by name frequently.
I stay very busy with the numerous activities-exercise class, art, crafts, movies, musical programs, book club, etc.
When I need a hair cut, I need only to call upstairs and make an appointment...never leaving the building. I particularly enjoy the various outings and trips to special programs!

I could not be happier!

The property was under a lot of construction so it was hard to get a real feel for it.

Wonderful home for mother

My mother moved to Merrywood after a house fire, thinking she would 'go home' after her home was repaired. She loved Merrywood and stayed. We were so pleased with everything and everyone. When mother's health declined, we used home health to keep her in her beloved Merrywood apartment. Merrywood answered all our hopes. AND NOW her brother and his wife have moved to Merrywood. Relief that they are safe and secure in this top notch community.

The people were lovely and informative. The only reason for the 4 is the darker halls and outdated kitchens/bathrooms in the apartments from a 60 yr. olds point of view. My mother, 84, liked everything just fine.

Wonderful place

Like being on a cruise

The staff take good care of you. They are friendly and encouraging. The food is good and they keep the community clean. They offer a lot of daily activities. I would recommend taking a look to see if this community would work for you.

Don't think anyone will care...

We are only three weeks in. So far, we are considerably unimpressed. This facility is understaffed and not great at following through in promises. Examples:
• The mail from the prior resident is still being delivered to my MIL's mail box. I had to change the name information myself.
• my MIL was not assigned an "ambassador or buddy" as we were told
• trash and boxes were stacked up outside her residence and a neighbors for 6 days before I complained loud enough for the trash to be removed. Safety hazard.
• we still haven't received a parking spot as promised.
• the wiring is odd. The TV has to be reset multiple times per day.
• housekeeping staff were kind enough to drop by to introduce themselves and tell us that they only have two staff members and we should only expect monthly housekeeping services; not weekly as promised.
• the door weather stripping is still in the middle of the floor despite being reported via work order. Again, tripping and safety hazard.
I could go on and on but I'm busy looking at alternate options.

Hi Sascha, thank you for taking the time to reach out. I’m sorry to hear that we are not meeting all of your expectations and I’d like to help. Can you email me directly at [removed]? From there, I can gain a better understanding of your circumstances and how best to assist.

I Love This Community

My loved one is having a hard time adjusting to her move to this community, but I do feel this is really nice community overall. I love the staff, they have great to work with. They provide nice meals, and have good activities available for the residents. Hopefully with some more time she will get involved in the community. This is a fine community. and I would recommend it.

needed more social access

We did not actually visit the place so everything is second hand. We were grateful to them for offering to hold an apartment in independent living while my father-in-law took time to recover in assisted living from his recent fall. As it turned out he left after 3 days and went back to his apartment and is doing just fine getting around with a cane. He had a list of grievances. I think the primary one was that the people in the assisted living section were not friendly. The whole point of him living in one of these places was to have easy social access to other seniors. I think the mistake Atria made was in not taking him to the independent living area for meals so that he could be meeting others more like him.

Hi, Cathy. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about your father-in-law’s experience at Atria MerryWood. We’d love to have you come see our community first-hand to explore how we can help your family - and if an independent living apartment would fit your father-in-law’s needs. If you have any additional comments to share or need anything further, you can reach us at [removed].

Beautiful Community. Too expensive for my budget.

Of the facilities I have visited, this is the most favorable at this time. [Removed] was point on, the location is great for me, the grounds and facility were clean, staff nice and the residents we saw were very happy. We left feeling like we know the ins and outs and were very satisfied.

Definitely 4-star!

Parents have been here for over three years. Minimal complaints, lots of compliments. Let's get the negative out of the way. Parking is inadequate. Moderate staff turnover can be difficult on this population. **Annual price increases are too high, even for the high level of services provided. Food is above average in quality and variety. Beautifully manicured landscape, centrally located to shopping, medical care, and uptown. Pets are welcome to visit or for a fee, to stay. Active resident council. Wide variety of activities offered from Wii tennis and bowling to Bridge and Tai Chi to performances from various community groups. Holidays are celebrated with the glamor of New York City and families are invited to attend almost all events from picnics to German Polka bands, to a cappella groups. Valiant efforts are made to contain the inevitable viral outbreaks within the facility. Wish they had room to offer all levels of care instead of just independent and assisted living.

Nothing But Good Things To Say!!

The Atria MerryWood has been amazing. I cannot think of anything bad about this place. The staff is wonderful, they are very friendly. The community allows pets so my mother was able to take her dog which made her happy. The overall look of the community is beautiful. The inside and outside are maintained very well, there are always new flowers being planted outside of the buildings. My mother is staying in a large studio apartment with a walk in closet, she is very happy. The neighbors are very nice she is making a lot of new friends. They even have physical therapy on site. I am very content with our decision to choose this place.

Five Star!

I was able to go on a tour here and i fell in love with this place. The staff was helpful and very nice. They answered all my questions and showed me everything. I would have loved to send my loved one here, but the price is really expensive. However, it is well worth it. I would recommend them to others.

Mom's Care

This is a nice community. We are happy with this community. She is happy with the food and the variety. There are activities available to her. I would recommend this community for families wanting good care for the value.

Loved the community!

The community was very clean and well kept. The staff that took me on tour was very helpful and addressed all of my concerns. We had the opportunity to try the food and it was really good. We were invited back to partake in one of the evening activities which was amazing. They provided a big band and had a special dance.

No Problems

My step father is doing well at this community. He has adjusted well to it and seems to like it here. Everyone has been very helpful and friendly. Overall this is a nice community and everything has worked out very well. I have had no problems with this community and I would recommend it.

The people are nice!

My mom is here, the people are nice ... there was a issues in the beginning however, things are panning out now.

Everything is going fine

I think everything is going fine. My Mother is the one that is living there and according to her she is being treated well and loves the place, the staff, and the residents.

Short stay, but a very nice place

My loved one was only here for a brief time, but I'd say our short experience was a positive one. The facility was well kept and clean, and the staff all seemed very friendly and caring. We ended up needing to move her because Atria does not offer the level of medication management she required, but it is definitely a very nice place for those not needing that service.

A fabulous place, it was big and easy to get around.

My mom lived here a few years ago when she thought she was ready. They were great! It was just drop dead gorgeous. A fabulous place, it was big and easy to get around. It's one of the best places in the area, I looked around at about 15 different places.

Seemed like a nice place

We toured this community while looking into senior living options for a loved one. Atria Merrywood seemed like a very nice place, overall! The facility itself was well kept and clean, and the staff all seemed friendly and helpful.

Looked very nice

We toured this community when we were looking into care options for a loved one. I was very impressed by what I saw here! It was a nice looking, clean community, and the staff all seemed very friendly. Unfortunately when we toured they did not have any openings, and the wait list was around 6 months. It was a very nice looking place, and I'd definitely recommend checking it out!

Impressed with this locatio...

Impressed with this location as an independent living option. When we look for such a facility for ourselves, it will be high on the list.

Very nice place!

We're very very impressed by what we've seen at Atria MerryWood! The personnel, the programs, the amenities, and the facility itself are all wonderful! The meal plan is great, and they've been nothing but accommodating in working with us. We took our loved one to tour a few that we selected, and she signed up on the spot after seeing this place! She's even got a few friends planning to take a look at it after hearing all the good things she had to say. We'd definitely recommend it to others!

We liked how active and social they were, kind of like resort living, with assistance.

They were very professional. Our stay was very short, but they were really good. MerryWood was wonderful they were very accommodating, and they helped us get furniture for our loved one. We liked how active and social they were, kind of like resort living, with assistance. They really were very sweet and just a great group of people.

Living there now, no memory care.

Very nice place

Our loved one stayed at this facility for a time, until her care needs necessitated a move elsewhere. This is a lovely, albeit expensive, community for those with few care needs. The staff are all very friendly and professional, and the residents here seemed very content. We transferred our loved one here from an out of state Atria facility, and they were very helpful during the transfer and really made that whole process very easy for us, which was a big benefit.

Southern Setting

My Mom lived there for 2 1/2 Yrs. coming from Fl.
Unfortunately I had to move her to an Assisted Living Place, she fell and fractured her Hip and needed more Help.She was very happy at Merrywood and the Staff is friendly and cheerful, sorry to say not were she is now.
The Apartments are very nice with Balcony, she used a lot.
She had a 1 BR Apartment, with Kitchen and Washer /Dryer in the Apartment.

We moved our loved one with Alzheimer...

We moved our loved one with Alzheimers to this facility in the hopes of her taking advantage of the many activities, outings and nutritional food choices offered. Unfortunately her present mental status and her anger at being taken from her home has caused her to not participate in much of anything so although she is paying for all these amenities she is not taking advantage of them.
She is in the independent living area so no care services per se are provided unless contracted with an outside agency.

I was there today.parking is a problem. They have only 20 assisted living rooms, the rest are independent,that means you are responsible for all the laundry. aside from meals and trips, I feel my husband could not stay there alone and I would be responsible for everything else,or else hire someone to assist him

Very friendly

Atria Merrywood is the perfect place for my Mom. Both staff and residents are very friendly and respectful. Her apartment is very generous in size, however there is limited storage. The grounds and the common spaces are beautiful and well maintened. There was some confusion in the begining due to change in staff ( sales force), but was soon corrected.
