I am/was a resident of this facility

Meridian at Westwood is great. Everyone's really friendly. You're made to feel at home. It's just a really nice atmosphere. They have bingo and we had a dance for New Year's Eve. They have a bus that takes you on certain days to the grocery store, or other things that you need to go to. They have cars available, and I think they go to Walmart on certain days. They help you out that way or any other needs. The rooms are spacious and really nice. The maintenance is great. They're just right on it, even the TV, the little things, the sink, and whatever. Those were the few things that happened to me, and I think the maintenance is really great here. With the food, some days are better than others, but that's going to happen no matter where you are. I guess, it's according to the cook that day, but basically it's pretty good. The staff is friendly. They want to make sure that everything is right with the person, if can they help. They're very nice here. They try real hard. I haven't even looked at another place to start with. I'm going by just strictly this place. I've never even looked into someplace else. They have a lot of activities. They try to keep you busy. I know that they have bingo at certain times. They have puzzles you can put together, and they play dominoes and different card games. They have a lot of things in the Magnolia Room, and that's where we had our dance on New Year's Eve.

I toured a few senior living homes for mother. My mother is 85. Meridian at Westwood hit the mark. I found Meridian at West was much cheaper than Bob Hope Village but Meridian at West wood was more home-like. Westwood also seems to have more daily activities than the other facilities. Brookdale in Destin was VERY nice and beautifully nestled in the Bay Town Wharf area’s multi-million dollar home subdivisions. Brookdale was a little more expensive, the rooms were nice but they were also slightly smaller—although nicely laid out. Brookdale had a colder feeling to me, although it is a pretty place and the resident apartments have screened in porches. Brookdale also did not offer independent living, which is really what my mother needed for now. I ultimately decided I didn’t want to battle summer tourist traffic each week to drive to Brookdale, since I live in Niceville. One of the things that I do love about Meridian at Westwood is the social area. The ceiling let’s in direct sunlight, similar to an Antrim. This is the main area for the residents to socialize and it’s surrounded with live trees and beautiful plants. It’s beautiful. All of these senior living places are expensive, in my opinion. My mother could only afford a studio apartment, in the independent living category, since she is living off of the proceeds from her home sale. HOWEVER, despite this, we were able to comfortably fit a love seat, a recliner, coffee table, end table, a bistro cafe table set in her kitchen area and a full size bed and bed side table. Her studio apartment is perfect for her. It’s manageable and it lets in lots of light. Everyday they check on her, all meals are included and she is already making friends. The residents and the staff have been so welcoming. It was a very big transition for my mother but Meridian at Westwood is looking to be the right decision. I wish we would have placed her there sooner. I hope others find this review helpful.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I am a resident of Meridian at Westwood, and I've been here a month. I came for a retreat for two days and two nights. I came with a friend, and I had no intentions of staying here. My friend said she would come to the retreat if I would come with her, and I did. I just fell in love with the people and the two girls who helped us, Aisha and Lana. When my daughter came to pick me up that Saturday, I cried; I did not want to leave. I was in this big house by myself. The next week, I came and signed the papers. I called the movers, and the next week I was over here. I absolutely love it. The staff are everyone's family now. I know everyone by first name, and I just love it. I'm not alone, I smile, and it's just been a wonderful experience. I'm glad to give my review, because I'm just really, really happy here. I have been here a month. I moved in and it was not a difficult change at all. I'm just happy here, I'm smiling, and everyone's family. It's just the way I want things to be. I do not want to be at home alone, and I already have made good friends. The friend I came with moved in late yesterday afternoon. I was here a month before she ever decided to move, but she's here now. It's difficult now because of the shortage of people. Rather than having the food served, it's buffet style, and the residents are not happy with the food. We are praying that it's going to change. I've had people come up and tell me that they came here because it's supposed to be fine dining and they serve you. Most of these people -- but not me -- have walkers, and it's difficult for them to go in and serve themselves a plate with a walker. But it's a different time now, and the they can't get servers or people to work. Hopefully that's going to change, but I'm not complaining -- other people are. The staff go above and beyond in their duties. The marketing people, the executive director, and everyone serving food are just remarkable. They work and work and work, and I admire them -- I really do. I do wish they had something at night. Usually after the dinner hour at 6:30 p.m., people go up to their apartments and there's no activity at nighttime. I know that the activity directors only work so many hours, and they have to go home. They can't provide activity at night, but I just don't like to go back to my apartment and not have anything to do. I'm happy to be here, I love the staff and the residents, I've started to make good friends, and we just feel like a family.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My Mother moved into a spacious 6th floor, 2-bedroom Independent Living apartment at the Meridian six years ago. She chose the Meridian because of the convenient location to Fort Walton's Medical community and the apartment for its lovely view of the pool and the adjacent golf course. She also wanted to live in a senior community that offered different levels of care as she aged. Mom has enjoyed being able to still live independently in a safer environment with meals and transportation provided. When she recently needed more assistance the amazing staff went into overdrive for our family and were able to expedite the move-in process and coordination with doctors and pharmacies to rapidly move her to Assisted Living where she has another nice apartment with a great view of the Atrium and the residents enjoying all the activities (they were line-dancing to a sassy Country Song the day we moved in!). We're so grateful to the entire staff - not only for the coordination of two moves - but also for keeping the Residents safe and comfortable during the Covid crisis in spite of restrictions, shortages, and constant changes. Many thanks to the caring team of earth Angels in Assisted Living for getting her comfortably settled-in and to ALL of the wonderful staff that gives the Meridian its 5-Star rating!

I visited this facility

The staff at Meridian at Westwood was excellent. The building has a little bit of age on it, but it's well maintained. It looks like a luxury hotel, and the pricing is reasonable. Their one-bedroom apartment was the largest one-bedroom apartment that I've looked at. That was the nicest place I've looked at so far. I liked their menu. They have a very flexible menu, and there's no extra charge for a diabetic menu.

My mother is a resident at Westwood. After her recent stay in the hospital I stayed onsite in a guest apt. The entire staff was helpful and accommodating as my mother adjusted to her apt. The food is great with a surprisingly nice selection on the menu and with backups always available. Additionally the support staff was extremely helpful in arranging transportation to all her follow up doctors visits. I feel relieved that Mom is in a nice place with caring competent people.

I visited this facility

Meridian at Westwood was very good. The lady that was showing us around was intimate with the building and the facilities. She greeted almost everyone we met in the hallway. She knows everyone and we were quite impressed. I can't say anything about the food, but the dining area was very neat and clean. She showed us the library, the dining area, a couple of lounges, and the laundry facilities. She was quite thorough. The outdoor spaces were very pleasant. People were lounging outside the day we were there. It was a sunny day so it was a nice place to sit and visit with friends. It's a 5-story building with a lot of doors and hallways. We went into a couple of rooms to look at the size. They were empty, and they were very clean and neat.

So many challenges we were faced with but the management team and staff worked so hard everyday to see that the needs of our residents were not only met, but exceeded. My job is to bring the fun, and keep everyone happy and upbeat and I sure do take that seriously! Ask anyone who's seen me dancing in the dining room! Ha!

In looking for a new home near us for my father in law who recently lost his wife of 58 years, we easily settled on Meridian at Westwood, knowing this is a place where he can become part of a vibrant community of retirees. An avid reader, he will enjoy the extensive library. As an Air Force Vietnam era veteran, he will have plenty of folks with whom to swap stories.

A family member moved into the Meridian this month and we are very happy that we chose this place! The Meridian is clean, brightly lit, and feels like a resort hotel. The marketing staff went out of their way to make our transition from another state to FL as seamless as possible, in spite of the pandemic. We received accurate information and were informed of options throughout the process. The caretakers on our floor are helpful, cheerful, and treat our family member like an adult. We are very happy with our decision.

My brother moved to Meridian at Westwood. They've very good to him. He had been confused for about 3 days and his nurse that administers his medication morning and night tells me that he has been very bad. So they transported him to the hospital and it takes a while to get all that done but they finally got him in a room. I would give them a very good rating, they're very nice to us and him there. The rooms are very nice and very spacious. The food is good from what I've seen. They've been on lockdown so they have to bring in their little trays, sometimes it looks appealing but I would rate it good. The staff is always helpful, very nice and friendly, we've never had any problems. They have activities like puzzles, little shuffleboard, and I've seen them play bingo there. They try to do something with them there, it's just different this year with the COVID virus. The building itself is always nice and clean.

After living at The Meridian for one month, it felt like home. The staff is amazingly friendly and accommodating. The food is almost too delicious if you are watching your waistline. The one bedroom apartment is spacious. There is an overall welcoming and friendly atmosphere and newcomers are made to feel welcome both by the staff and other residents. Medical care is steps away at the hospital or at the White Wilson Medical Center. The arrangement of the apartments around a six-story indoor atrium invites socializing.

My mother is currently a resident in an independent living room. Meridian staff look after their residents well in both independent living and assisted living. The level of care and attention seniors receive at the Meridian exceeds my expectations. Staff are friendly, and they check in on independent living residents too. There's a nurse onsite as well for consultation, and that's not something a senior will have at home.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I arrived at The Meridian about 3 years ago and was very happy with my decision to live here after looking at three other places. The Meridian surpassed them all. My apartment has everything I need. Bedroom, Bathroom, kitchen, dining, and plenty of storage space. Whats even more special is the atrium in the middle. I have a putting green right outside my door. Fit Classes, Bowling, Bingo, game tables and more. They always have entertainment and lots of activities. They have delicious food. They delivered them right to our door during the pandemic. They have Assisted living and memory care too. I highly recommend my community. You couldn't find a better place.

I have an Aunt that is a current resident of this facility. It has been a splendid place for her to feel at home. As soon as she settled in she was welcomed and made to feel like family. They have a full array of activities to keep her busy and/or the beautiful atrium where she can sit with her thoughts. We are always very delighted to visit her and hear of her great adventures at Meridian.

What is provided and what is not, for example, bath soap hand soap towels linens. I have just recently had the opportunity to actually enter inside to see the facility. To my surprise there was no hand soap in the bathroom of dads room. Staff is always trying to be more helpful, also always providing information and tips to assist me and others with our loved ones. I believe most staff do what they can day to day with interaction of residents and what I have seen make the residents feel somewhat comfortable with what is available based on individual situations. I see one of the request is “Food”, one of the biggest complaints I hear from dad is his meals are barely warm when he gets it. I realize the facility of this size is serving hundreds each meal and do the best they can on what I have seen first hand.

The staff at Meridian has been so helpful, from the initial visit through move-in and getting settled. They are making the "Covid" challenges more bearable. They continue to check on our uncle daily to be sure his needs are taken care of properly, including his diabetic diet needs, and they keep the family informed of anything requiring attention. All the staff is extremely friendly and they are taking all precautions during "Covid" to keep the residents safe.

The Meridian at Westwood is home for our Mother. In the 4 plus years she has been there she has made many friends. The staff is friendly, caring and always goes out of their way to ensure they meet every need of their residents...from serving three delicious meals each day, cleaning their apartments, planning events, and ensuring each resident is happy, healthy and satisfied. The apartments are very spacious and beautiful and provide all the amenities needed to live comfortably and safely! The staff fosters a family environment, and they truly care about every resident personally! The Meridian at Westwood is an awesome place to live!! We are so happy that it is the place our Mother calls home!

My brother has been in Meridian at Westwood for a while now. They're doing a good job. So far, so good. The staff members are excellent. They're very helpful. The rooms are very good and are like little apartments. His room has a full-sized refrigerator, a stove, and a sink. It's like a little kitchenette. It's considered a studio apartment. They're delivering food to his room right now. There's really no restaurants or anything around for him, but the place is right across from the Fort Walton Beach Hospital and all kind of doctors' offices up and down that road. The building is a little bit older, but very well kept up. They have a big atrium that's covered and they have real plants growing in it. They have all kinds of activities for them once the pandemic is over. They have pool tables, exercise equipment, miniature golf, a swimming pool, and they do karaoke with them. The price is out of his range though, and he's gonna have to get the VA to help him out. He's in phase two of assisted living and the price goes up for each phase. It's not one flat rate. They assess him and it goes based on what their assessment is, how much it's going to be, and the things that they have to do for them. If they do more for him, it costs more. That's really the only downfall I see to this versus one set cost.

Review of Meridian at Westwood

I am writing this Letter of Appreciation in recognition of Aisha Hagglund. Words of thanks are sometimes not enough, and in Aisha's case, a letter is warranted. I first started working with Aisha in early April 2020 when I was trying to place my father (Leon A. Corallo) in an independent living facility. Due to the unusual constraints and restrictions of COVID-19, finding a facility suitable for my father created quite a challenge. Aisha went out of her way to accommodate repeated visits, video chats, and personal meetings sometimes on short notice. Her confidence, poise, demeanor was reassuring, just like her follow through and flexibility. While I recognize the unusual steps The Meridian has to take in order to move a new member into an apartment, it can be very difficult for staff to replicate the care and personalized attention that a family would take if permitted to do it themselves Again, Aisha went above and beyond with her attention to detail and sensitivity to my father's needs. I couldn't be more pleased with the Meridian, the more and most importantly, how my father was treated by Aisha specifically. Thanks again for running great facility. Please pass my sincere thanks to Aisha for doing such a great sob, and all her efforts to support my father, Leon Coralla, during his transition.

The staff has been wonderful....a shout out for Aisha Hagglund who was truly wonderful in getting dad adjusted.

Meridian at Westwood was a huge complex. It reminds you of a large hotel with a big lobby. It didn't really hit me as some place you want to call home, but it's pretty clean and the staff was very knowledgeable. They were upgrading when I was there, and they've got ample parking.

Review of Meridian at Westwood

My mother in law was a resident in assisted living and then memory care unit. While at the meridian, she was well cared for by the staff. We are now moving my dad into assisted living and know he will be in good hands. Everyone has been helpful in making this transition as easy as possible. Finding a safe environment for your loved ones to continue to thrive is very important.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

The Meridian is a top notch assisted living facility. My father is a new resident, and the staff has been friendly and helpful to him. This has been a wonderful experience for me. After my father broke his hip, we knew daddy could no longer live in his split level home. The Meridian is a wonderful choice for him. He is happy and we are happy.

I visited the Meridian at Westwood independent living community with my dad and sister. We were all impressed with the quality and feel of the place. There is a large airy atrium with lots of live plants and places for the residents to socialize, take exercise classes, or participate in activities. The hallways of the building look out over this open space which is really pleasant. We toured a couple of apartments. They were spacious and had recently been renovated with very nice kitchenettes and baths. We were impressed by all of the offerings in the community and that the residents are involved in decision-making through an elected board. There was a library, a chapel, an outdoor pool with deck, a movie theater with free popcorn and cookies, an area to walk dogs, and restaurant-style dining. We had lunch and enjoyed our meal thoroughly. Each of the residents we spoke to had good things to say about the Meridian. We also saw several grandkids visiting was fun and learned visitors can stay in guest lodgings on-site. I hope my dad will consider joining this community in the future.

I spent 7 years in Destin in individual living. When I turned 98 years old, I got tired of doing housework, laundry, etc. and I began searching this area of Florida for a retirement community. After looking at several retirement communities I finally found the best one in the area. The Meridian at Westwood was by far the best I had seen and I could not help but move in. The community offered so much more than the others I had seen. I had not doubt this was the place I wanted to live the rest of my life. I have been here two years now and I am glad I chose The Meridian to spend the rest of my years. Now at 100 years old I have enjoyed my last two years and have no complaints. There are many amenities, but the atrium with the palm trees provide an outdoor feel while indoors! Like an upscale hotel. The residents are friendly. Daily activities and weekly entertainment keep you busy. The food is excellent. I could not of found a better community.
