Care Types: Assisted Living

A stately building, set well back from the street, houses Merrill Gardens at North Richland Hills. A grand covered entrance supported by four brick columns greets visitors. Young oaks grow on the front lawn. Residents preparing for the daily exercise filled the great room when we began our tour. We overhead one resident suggest poetry readings as a possible activity to a staff member. The staff member agreed and designated that resident as poetry reading organizer. The facility’s monthly newsletter lists activities which include computer time, ceramics, bridge, shopping and excursions to nearby casinos in Oklahoma.

The facility is divided into neighborhoods; each neighborhood has a separate living room for residents of that area. Elegant dark wood furnishings complement the wood paneling on the walls throughout the facility. Attractive glass and brass sconces provide fluorescent lighting throughout the building. The exceptionally wide hallways are carpeted in forest green and lined with benches. Residents’ rooms are small and each features a spacious walk-in closet. Some have bay windows. Dark wood chairs and tables furnish the dining area. Residents lunched on barbecued pork sandwiches, potatoes, broccoli and fruit, and enjoyed a view of the patio area when we visited. The back patio features a plush lawn and numerous potted plants, which are tended by residents.
