The care you need - when you need it
Care is more than a service we provide at Merrill Gardens – it’s a way of life.
While you live at Merrill Gardens, you may find that your needs change over time, but we believe your home shouldn't have to. We are here to provide the help you may need – within the comfort of your apartment home. Changes in care don't have to mean a move to new accommodations.
You can stay and grow with us and we will work closely with you to meet your changing needs. We license the entire community for a wide range of care. This means that as your needs change and services come and go, the security and personality of your home can remain sacred. After all, it is your home and we want to help you keep it that way.
An Active Life is a Happy Life
Managing a packed calendar of enriching activities is a full-time job and our Active Living Program Director is up to the task. We're driven by the desires of the people who live here and our days are jam packed with more choices than you'll have time for in your day.
