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!
