I am telling you this now, absolutely do not even consider placing yourself or a family member here! I was employed by them for almost two years and left because of their sub-standard care! It is the number one worst place in Puyallup if not the state! Lets start with the care....If your lucky you will get the terrible care they provide, thats if your lucky otherwise you will just be neglected and left to sit in your room all day going crazy. No one receives showers here and most people smell terribly. They are so severely understaffed they have NO time for you...Picture your family member as a cow being herded around day and night...waiting in long lines for medication passed by under trained fools. Then once you get your 10 seconds to get your pills they send you off to the dirty smelly dining room where they will serve you some nasty slop and mystery meat. The dining room smells of feces and urine and there are flies all over the place. I once even witnessed pork chops floating in the dishwashing sink in warm bloody water for about 15 hours thawing. NASTY! There is a major theft issue going on and no one can seem to solve it! The state is in almost weekly investigating complaints of poor care, theft, and many other violations of WAC codes. I feel so terribly for the poor people who live here, don't let yourself fall into their trap. The people in charge could care less about the residents all they want is money money money...if someone dies Oh well get someone else in because we need MONEY! The way meridian hills is run is unbelievable, I don't even know how they have not been shut down...which will probably only be a matter of time...and don't fall for the owners review that tells make believe stories of wonderful resident care and quality meals because its a bunch of bologna! I swear try a meal for yourself if you can stomach it! first you have to fight your way through the flies and smell of urine to eat some nasty meal slathered in nasty gravy! eveything comes from a can and is processed garbage! So take my word for it! You don't even want to try it. But if you don't believe me head on in for a tour. you will be greeted by the pungeant smell of urine and a bunch of phony people with a fake smiles on their faces, trying to con you into believing their lies so they can rake in your family memebers money leaving them with a measly 60 bucks a month. And not to mention the RAT problem. Dead rats in the ceiling, rat feces in the ceiling, there were maggots eating a dead rat one time and all the maggots were falling out of light fixtures. I could go on for a long time but hopefully you get the point, which is wouldn't trust them to care for a pet rock! because they would surely screw something up! I hope this review helps you and protects as many people as possible...and please don't take the bait that I am a ""disgruntled previous employee"" because I am not! I truly care for the people who are currently living here and have found a new wonderful place of employment, where people are taken care of! Now please consider yourself warned!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros: ABSOLUTELY NONE!!
Cons: NEGLECT, NASTY FOOD, NASTY STAFF, TERRIBLE CARE IF ANY!
