Review of Meridian at Westwood

Wait... I need to get my thesaurus out because there simply are nit enough adjectives to describe staff member [name removed]! She is helpful, enthusiastic, professional, and genuinely caring for the residents. She is always smiling and forever passing out compliments... you have a real jewel here!

WOW! Can't say enough about [name removed] and the dining hall servers and kitchen staff. You know you are doing it right when your residents would rather eat here than goout! The food is superb and the staff is continually trying to make it even better - Thanks!

Our community has a true ambassador in [name removed], resident care director. She is always helping the residents, delivering us to appointments and making certain that we return safely. Her smile is contagious!

I would like to compliment [name removed] (and [name removed]) who work hard to do maintenance requests by the residents. The few items that I have has were taken care promptly and professionally. He is working hard to keep renovation issues at a minimum - an almost impossible task!

[name removed] and [name removed] have been busy! We have a lot of new residents and these two ladies plus [name removed] have really been doing a great job of introducing them to other residents and getting them involved so they feel at home much sooner. I've heard lots of positive comments about community relations.

We have a wonderful activities director, [name removed]. She and her associate [name removed], have really improved the program over just a month! Added book club, pool time, expanded happy hour, bingo times and added several outings (restaurants, museums, etc) Kudos!

Review of Meridian at Westwood

I love living here because if the people - both residents and staff. There are lots of activities. The minuses are the noise of construction and cost of rent. Rents were raised 4% which is double the "cost of hiring" - one day it may be a 5 star but not yet.

Work In Progress

My mother is still adjusting to her move to this community. It is a pretty nice community, but there is room for improvement in this community. There is a lot of new staff, and they are still getting use to the routine around the facility. She isn't pleased with the dining experience. They are slow to serve, she is the last to eat, and the last to leave. They do a great job with the cleanliness, but she has had some with her laundry. It is still a work in progress for us in this community.

Great Experience in This Community

My mother in law is doing well with her since her move to this community. We do feel she is safe, and in great hands. They are taking great care of her, and we are pleased with all they have done for us. This is a wonderful community with a caring staff. Everything has worked out well for us in this community, and we would highly recommend it.

Not professional at all!

I was not impressed at all with this community. I had an appointment and when we arrived they were not there. the LPN came in and she did not know anything about the community. I just did not like the lack of professionalism at all. They also said that they had a garden and when I went to go look it was just a bunch of weeds.

Second Family

The Meridian at Westwood aka "Westwood" for many, many years, has been through numerous changes over the years and are currently going through major renovations but the one constant in in all those changes for my parents has been the employees. My parents have lived at Westwood for 12 years and have no desire to leave their extended family. A major part of the staff have been there for 5+, 10+, even 15 and 20+ years and have brought my parents and the other residents through the changes with respect and love as a family should.

Thank you for your positive review! We are so glad to hear that you are happy and that your parents like it here. We hope that you can join us for our Holiday party this year! Thank you again for your wonderful and heartfelt review!

Seemed nice, not what we needed

I toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. The facility was well kept and clean, and my loved one had some friends here that had very good things to say about the place! However, I don't think the care was the best match for what my loved one was needing at the time. Overall it seems like a nice place, and is definitely worth a look for those looking into independent living.

Pacifica Senior Living

Entirely satisfied

We're very pleased with how things have turned out at Wellington Place. I'd give them top marks across the board, they've handled everything as well as you could expect. The place is well kept and clean, and the staff do a good job looking out for the people who live here.

It's been great so far. We have not had a single issue, yet. It's clean and the staff is friendly. The building is clean and well maintained, but it is an older building, and I would give them a lower score based on that. We liked the graduated care that they offered here, and that is what made us choose them.

We are currently renovating the building and very excited for the luxury amenities it has to offer. We appreciate your kind words and are happy that you shared your review here.We will be sure to share with our staff at the property. Only ten minutes from Eglin Air Force Base our community is situated in the neighborhood with the Fort Walton Beach Medical Center, easily accessible to many professional services, shopping centers, a municipal golf course, tennis courts, the YMCA and churches.

I love this place from the minute I walked in. They were prompt and ready to meet with us as planned. It has a very homey feeling, everything was in order and clean. The residents seemed generally happy. This place had everything we wanted and more.

very impressed!

I was very impressed with the overall friendliness of the whole staff, especially Chris, the manager. He really went out of his way to assist my mother and myself. They went out of their way to accommodate and make it a very smooth transition. The activities that they have there are really great, enough to keep my mother busy all day. The food is very good also, and the dining hall is very nice.

I was really very impressed with Meridian at Westwood and would highly recommend them.

Chrisalizing

I thoroughly enjoyed my time visiting and working with Chris to secure a place for my mother at the Meridian. He was very friendly, as well as all the staff there. Not only friendly but very encouraging and dedicated to his job as well as the well being of the Senior community. The meals were wonderful, and with many options. The activities were there on a daily and hourly basis. And Chris was able to allow myself and mother to experience some of these before we decided to make the final step. I was allowed to stay the day before I flew back to Canada and was appreciative of this. An extraordinary place to be involved with and live.

visited 2 weeks ago. nice ...

visited 2 weeks ago. nice facility, but no japanese tenents. That is a high priority given my mothers ethnicity and insecurities. Tonya was wonderful.

This was just for an overnight respite stay.

This was just for an overnight respite stay. When I went to check out there was some difficulty finding someone to do that. They had a little happy hour, which was good. The food was fine. For the time I was there I can't think of anything to be improved or done better.

Great place

It’s a great place! I love it! They some activities, but not as many as I thought they would. I think it’s a fabulous place. I ate there just the other day with my loved one and the food is fabulous. There is enough parking.

Really Happy Residents

We used this for a respite stay and they're very on top of it. The residents are really really happy. There's a lot of interaction instead of people being sequestered in their rooms and separate from everyone. When you first walk in there is a big round table where they play games and talk and read. It's terrific.

Nice Community

We had our loved one here but had to move her because they did not have availability for the next level of care she needed. It seemed like a nice little community and would like to get them back into it when we have a chance.
