Meet Merrill Residents


As we continue to celebrate our company's 30th anniversary this year, we are excited to release our first set of videos. These videos shine a spotlight on some of our residents and their stories.

Meet Darlene and Jerry. This incredible couple lives at Merrill Gardens at Tacoma (WA). They met at the community and fell in love! Next thing Darlene knew, Jerry was talking about getting married — and the rest is history. Hear them tell their story in the video below:

We're not sure about you, but we are a sucker for a good thriller movie or crime podcast. We interviewed Pat, who is a resident at Merrill Gardens at Tacoma (WA) and was a criminal Private Investigator for over 10 years. She worked on a case involving Rodney Reed — a case that is still in the courts today, and had a documentary created around it. Watch her interview to learn more.

Ron, resident of Merrill Gardens at Renton Centre (WA), worked in the Washington State Patrol for 27 years. Ron worked incredibly hard in his career, but as he says in the video, "my family got me through it." 

Keep an eye out for more videos that highlight our residents' stories and experiences. Thanks for tuning in!
