Merrill Gardens 30th Anniversary


In today's fast-paced world, where businesses come and go, there's something really special about a family-owned company with three decades of success. That's why Merrill Gardens is so proud to celebrate 30 years in the senior living industry this year. Our company's commitment to residents, families and team members has always been our top priority. 

Our commitment comes from the deep roots of the company. Founder, Richard Dwight (R.D.) Merrill, came to the Pacific Northwest in the 1890s to establish timber holdings. He was an innovator, the first to practice sustainable forestry, and his tradition of attention and thoughtfulness eventually grew to include the business of caring for people.

Within our family of senior living communities, we are proud to offer a variety of options to meet different needs and lifestyles. From unique locations to varying care and service options, we are here to serve you. In 2021, we launched Truewood by Merrill to offer even more options for seniors.

As we commemorate our 30th anniversary, we wanted to share the wisdom of the people that have made this possible...our residents! We are so incredibly excited to release the first of 30 videos to celebrate the past 30 years! We will be releasing these stories throughout the year to recognize the special occasion!

Stay tuned to hear more from residents, team members, and company President, Tana Gall.

Happy 30th Anniversary, Merrill Gardens!
