Assisted Living

Caring means giving you as much independence as possible.

At Merrill Gardens, we don’t just fulfill duties, we take a caring interest in our residents and seeing that they have access to everything possible. As an independent, family-owned business, we hire and train according to a long tradition of caring. Taking care of all the little stuff is our pleasure because of the life it brings to our residents. We build a service plan particular to the changing needs of each resident, and always in view of giving them access to their fullest self.

Services we can assist with may include bath and shower help, dressing, grooming, medications, safety checkups, and more. We take privacy and independence seriously.

Anytime Dining gives our residents choice in how and when they sit down to meals, and we’re proud of our comfortable restaurant-style dining room. Active Living is the way we promote health and well-being, giving seniors access to social events, exercise, and mind-engaged activities. Our residents tell us what they would like to do as a part of the community, and we listen.

We are ready to make life and happiness that much easier.

Memory care at The Oaks, A Merrill Gardens Community

Memory Care

Garden House is our memory care specific community created around the unique needs of people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Residents enjoy an inviting environment with a team who are always warm and happy to help.

Everyone has a story to tell, and we love hearing them all. Our team focuses on honoring each resident from day one. Through our Personal Pathways program we seek to know the meaningful details of your loved one’s life—where they’ve been, what they’ve done—and what activities might be especially fun or meaningful to them. Those are the kind of details that make a difference. Families are encouraged to participate in daily activities. We strive for a family feel and positive social engagement for all of our residents.

You’ll find only intimate, comfortable rooms in our Garden House. Our grounds are beautifully landscaped, with secured outdoor courtyards and a specially trained team on site 24/7.
