Just moved my mother in and she LOVES it. She raves about the meals, the staff has been amazing, and she really enjoys the other people there. Amazing find. I was about to move into a much more expensive place but this one is much better for her, more room, brand new and she is well cared for there. We are both very happy.

The ambiance is serene elegance with a unique sense of hospitality. The Woods provides service within a mantra of "this is your home." My family and I thank everyone for my mother's life at her home at The Woods at Merrimack.
