A word from our residents

Meet Your Neighbor

"My sister Florence and I moved into Renton Centre in 2007. We had adjacent one bedroom apartments and began our new life. We were both Renton natives and it was good to be in a familiar neighborhood near old friends. In no time, we made new friends and it all became so comfortable. My other sister has also moved in as well and it is nice to have her so close. I enjoy Merrill Gardens very much. The staff is amazing and takes good care of us all. At 101 years of age I feel blessed and grateful!"

Louise George - Charter Resident at Merrill Gardens at Renton Centre since 2007
