Always Finding Fun!

|

Whether we are out in the sun tending to our gardens or inside making a brand new craft, we are always finding new and exciting ways to have fun throughout the Merrill family of senior living communities!

Residents in West Covina (CA) have been busy over this last year as they have created quite an impressive garden! It's always gratifying to enjoy the "vegetables" of your labor and the kitchen staff has been happy to whip up a tasty meal for them with the fresh produce.

West Covina even grew tomatoes to enjoy.

Our team in Tacoma (WA) has been taking the beautiful flowers from the outdoors and putting them to use as a pop of color around the community. Residents loved flexing their creative muscles and created some breathtaking floral arrangements!

The Oaks (AZ) broke out the paint and canvas for their brand new Exploring With Acrylics class. The art turned out gorgeous of course, and I think a few residents found out they have a hidden talent for it!
