209 Merriman Rd | Akron, OH 44303


I was in the Hospital from frequent falls at home and the flu. I could not walk during this time and was recommended to go to a facility for rehabilitation.  At first I did not want to go to a facility, but my neighbor and family recommended The Merriman and their care.  My stay while in The Merriman was wonderful.  The aides, nurses, and therapy team were all wonderful and very nice. I wanted to thank the therapy department from the bottom of my heart for their work and getting me back up walking!


I felt very comfortable and positive. All the staff were nice and wonderful. Therapy staff were always on time and great to work with. Food was also great. I enjoyed my time here and conversations with the other patients here. I would rate The Merriman 99.9%. I enjoyed my short stay here and feel strong to return home. This would be a perfect place for long term seniors


I was in the hospital for a fall I had at home due to pain in my legs. I have been at The Merriman in the past for therapy as well and recently returned for additional therapy treatment to get stronger. The staff here has taken good care of me both times around and is pleasant to work with. I feel strong enough to return home safely from working hard in therapy.


My stay at The Merriman facility was fantastic. I came here from Summa Hospital after a two day stay. I had obtained edema from heart failure and atrial fibrillation which helped in causing the wounds. Then I was injured by van service driver in my wheelchair that caused much bleeding. After the injury I was too weak to walk but through physical therapy, I regained strength. I gained confidence and stability through the physical therapy workers. They are definitely the best. I would recommend them to anyone. The nurses and medical staff helped my wounds get better and now I’m on my way home. This is a top notch facility. Even the patients and other residents are friendly. If you want the best care, come to The Merriman for your stay and rehabilitation.


I was referred by a friend of what good care The Merriman provides. The therapy has tremendously improved my leg strength. I have gained 12 pounds from losing over 20lbs. The staff are so excellent and attentive. It is a great facility for those needing therapy, rehab, or long term care. It’s pure gold! I was reluctant at first but I am so glad I was here.


My name is Eleanor. Going into assisted living, I was afraid and didn’t want to. After thinking about it, I went with my son to The Merriman to take a tour. I was in disbelief at how astounding and beautiful the mansion was. I met Gabby, who answered all my questions. I felt this was home for me and I didn’t want to go anywhere else.

After getting situated here, I’ve continued to grow myself in my own private apartment. The doctors here treat you so good. The food is amazing. I call it “my mansion’. I just love it and you don’t have to worry about anything. They handle everything. We have so much entertainment and activities to do. I love talking to everyone here.

The Merriman has given me so much faith, hope in myself, and love. You as a person wouldn’t believe this place until you come and see it for yourself: beautiful furniture, amazing chandeliers, everything. My son bought me all new furniture for my apartment, which was a surprise for me. He is the one who got me here. I can’t say enough things about “my mansion”, other than that I adore this place.


Therapy has improved my walking. My strength has improved. The staff and nurses are good. I can't wait to move over to Assisted Living and continue succeeding!


My experience here at The Merriman has been a good one. There isn't a perfect place, but when problems arise they do their best to fix them quickly. The nurses are wonderful and they along with the staff do their best to make me comfortable. They keep us busy with activities and outings. I've made many friends here and can't say there isn't anyone I don't like. This is my HOME, not just some place to live!

My mother was admitted almost 15 months ago. She came from the hospital with a leg that the doctor's there said had to be removed. She wouldn't allow this. After transitioning to The Merriman, the wound care specialist, Jodi, would call weekly with an update. Today, my mother has both of her legs showing no infection and no edema! They stayed on it and they now look like hers. OUTSTANDING WOUND CARE!


I have worked here over a year now and I love my resident's and work family. I believe we give the best care around. I was very impressed with our activities department and dining experience. As a caregiver, I love my resident's like they are family. I enjoy coming to work to take care of them!


I had a fall at home that landed me in Akron General Hospital. My family referred The Merriman for rehab. The therapy has been great and has gotten me walking, focusing on using my walker again. The staff & living environment have been perfect! The food is also very good here. I participate in all the activities I can and love the piano parties every week. My goal after finishing therapy is transitioning to the Assisted Living here. It has been so great here and I have no complaints at all. I would recommend through and through.


I've been with this facility a little over a year now. I have no complaints and staff are nice.


I come to The Merriman at least two/three times a week to visit my father and I have never had a negative experience. Everyone from the front desk to the kitchen staff treats me and the clients with respect. I'm happy my father is here.


Everything has been VERY positive. I am really surprised what good food The Merriman has, delicious! The staff is always very quick and attentive to my needs.


I recently had surgery & was admitted to The Merriman for short term rehab. The physician, therapy team, as well as the nursing staff were all so wonderful and nice. I would absolutely recommend The Merriman to others!


I am from the Assisted Living here at The Merriman. I was transferred to the hospital and returned to the skilled rehabilitation section at The Merriman for continued increased care. The therapy team has significantly improved my strength and I now feel I can return to my apartment safely!


I've been at The Merriman a little over a year now. I get along with all the staff here and have made lifelong friends. Food is delicious! I love attending morning exercises to maintain my independence and being around other residents. I love being here and enjoy calling Akron, Ohio my new home. Staff and Gabby have been absolutely wonderful. I enjoy having conversations with Diane, the DON. She is a great nurse! I'm just happy to be here!


I was in Akron General due to some weakness and fluid overload. I was here at The Merriman 7 years ago from an amputation. I had such great care, I knew I wanted to come back. I've had tremendous improvement in my strength and endurance.


I was transferred from Akron General to The Merriman. The hospital provided a list with The Merriman on it. I've been here a few week now and have made a lot of improvement. The staff attend to my needs and my favorite thing is interacting with the other people around here.


Everything is great here! Staff are excellent. I've improved with help from the therapy department and now get to go home.


Everybody has been very kind. I really like my room - the location is convenient and the views out the window are really nice. My son is recommending others to come here. I am very pleased at my new home.


I am excited to go home with my husband, but while I was here I really enjoyed all of the caring staff and support I had. All the staff at The Merriman have been wonderful and I have been treated very well while here. The staff go above and beyond to make sure you feel taken care of while here.
