Merrill Gardens Is On Facebook

Over the last few months, we’ve watched our community grow on the Merrill Gardens Facebook page. Facebook has been a great platform for our residents to connect, to share information, and for us to hear your thoughts and feedback!

Here is what we’ve been up to lately on Facebook :

We’ve been getting to know Bill.

Who is Bill?

Bill Sleeper is a resident at Merrill who keeps making some fantastic headlines! Bill is our tech enthusiast who loves everything from the latest iPhone apps to teaching his friends how to use an iPad. Recently, Bill was featured on Kiro7 as a 96 (and a half!) year old tech evangelist by KCPQ reporter, Kaci Aitchison.

We opened our new community at Banker Hill.

We just took these pictures of our new community in San Diego and wanted to share! Merrill Gardens at Bankers Hill (CA) is a lovely place to call home! You can check it out at our website here http://bit.ly/o1kZdJ

Community Spotlight:

Merrill Gardens at Admiral Heights

Merrill Gardens at Admiral Heights is a vibrant place to call home with lots going on! Our residents love the location of our community; we are right in the middle of all the action in the West Seattle business district. It’s an easy walk to shopping, dining and entertainment, including a public library, theatres, the award winning Metropolitan Market and some great restaurants. In addition, we are close to beautiful Alki Beach and just a short drive to downtown Seattle. For folks who don’t want to drive, we have scheduled transportation in our community bus and a town car.

Merrill Gardens at Admiral Heights

We are proud of the warm and welcoming atmosphere of our community, many of our team members have worked with us for years and they know what it takes to make our community a great place to call home. There is always something to do with our many amenities including a library, media room, activity room with kitchen and seating, rooftop garden and large lobby area. Our exclusive Anytime Dining program means that residents can dine in our restaurant style dining room on their own schedule. We are pleased with the fact that our busy activities program was recognized as the best in our company with the Merrill Gardens Lifestyles Award in 2010. With so much going on at our community, residents often tell us their biggest challenge is fitting it all in!

Speaking of the folks who live at Merrill Gardens at Admiral Heights, there is a robust resident council and hospitality committee that is open to anyone and new residents are paired with a friend when they move in so they can fit in right away.

Call us at (206) 938-3964 and we will be glad to show you around!

Here are some recent events at the community:

Halloween: This is a big event every year. Merrill Gardens at Admiral Heights is where the kids come to drop off their treasure map for a chance to win prizes when they are done grabbing candy from local merchants. See the album on our Facebook Page!

Winery tour: Residents visited the Chateau St. Michelle Winery in Woodinville. A great time to tour the facility, enjoy a tasting and learn about wine! See the album on our Facebook Page!

Veterans Event (11/11): Always a big celebration, this year we also raised funds for the Friends to Friends charity.

Ruth: She lived in Des Moines before coming here, and made the move to be closer to her family. One of the things that convinced her to move here was the fact that the community stresses independence, but still offers assistance if needed. She has called Admiral Heights home for the past eight years and loves the atmosphere, and the people. She is a very independent person and likes the fact that she can chose to participate in community events or just do her own thing.

George and Catherine: This couple just moved to the community and said they looked at lots of options but Merrill Gardens at Admiral Heights was the perfect fit. They love the food and the convenience of the Anytime Dining program. They also take advantage of the community concierge who helps them schedule rides to appointments. Plus, George likes that his favorite barbershop is just down the street!

Pat: She has been a West Seattle girl for most of her life, this is where she raised her family and she wanted to stay close by when she and her husband retired. Pat‘s husband passed away after they moved to Admiral Heights and she says that everyone at the community was so kind and helpful to her during that difficult time. Pat is very social and active and she is always involved in the outings at the community. She really loves that it is easy for her to go to downtown Seattle and soak up the city. She is also happy to be surrounded by the many friends she has made at the community.

Richard: He lived in the neighborhood and watched the community being built before he moved in! He has lived here for over seven years and loves the long time team members. He loves the variety of activities that are offered and the daily games they have in the lobby. Richard is on the Resident Council that meets each month. He has also been an avid volunteer at Group Health for over 10 years, going every week on Mondays and Fridays.
