Assisted Living

We start with who you are and what you need, and work to give you as much freedom and joy as possible.

At Merrill Gardens, we treasure our residents. Being family-owned means maintaining a tradition of caring that extends beyond service plans and clean-up duties. We want to connect you to the happiest life possible. We coordinate service to the needs of each resident, always looking to keep you active, interested, and in the company of supportive friends and top-level care.

Services we can assist with may include bath and shower help, getting dressed, grooming, medications, safety checks, and more. We respect your privacy and independence.

Anytime Dining means you have choice in how and when you sit down to meals, and we aim to make dining pleasant with our made-to-order restaurant-style dining. Active Living is the way we make sure seniors stay connected to one another and to the world around them - social engagement, fitness, and lots to see and do – our calendar is always open to your suggestions.

We’re here to help you find your best life yet.

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.
