Medical facilities are abundant and easy to access.
We're Proud of Our Community

Meet your Neighbor
Bob is a Veteran who served as a Tech Sergeant in the Air Force for eight years and earned his Doctorate in Clinical Pharmacy, specializing in pain management for many years. His top interests are music, pain management, and aviation, including flying his Cessna.
"I thought I would have to give up all three interests when I moved to The Pines as I didn’t know anyone and wasn’t sure if they would have any activities that would interest me. What I quickly realized was that the incredible staff at The Pines was open to all of my ideas and interests. I was able to start a monthly jazz video concert and the Aviation Club, which has programs on all levels of aviation and space advancement. Eventually, I was able to use my background and do presentations to other residents on ways to help with pain management above and beyond their current regimen. If you have an interest that’s not already implemented, speak to the staff and they will help and be supportive in any way they can. I am extremely happy I made the decision to call The Pines my home. It’s been such a pleasure to be part of the Merrill Gardens family."
