Support Our Troops Week Smashes Record!

Our annual Support Our Troops week was a great success. Our 56 communities nationwide helped us raise an enormous amount of money for the USO.

We want to congratulate our community teams for coming together to support the USO. This year was our biggest year yet with a total contribution of $66,000! The past two years we raised $50,000, bringing our grand total for all three years to $166,000. This is a significant contribution and the folks at the USO are deeply grateful.

While all communities did a great job raising money, we want to recognize a few who went above and beyond.

The top money raiser was Green Valley Ranch, bringing in a whopping $6,484!

Kirkland was not far behind with $6,115, followed by Admiral Heights with $4,008, University with $3,129, Canyon Lakes with $2,605 and Fremont with $2,520.

Congratulations to these communities for their wildly successful events. We are so proud of all of our communities, staff, and friends. Thank you everyone who donated to the USO this year.

We can’t wait until next year!

Admiral Treats and Treasures

Halloween is in the air. From parties to dress up, our communities have been having a blast!

At our Admiral Heights community, we participated in the Admiral Merchants’ annual trick-or-treat event. Merchants in the community dressed up, pulled out some treats, and let trick or treaters come visit.

We invited trick or treaters into the community and handed out some tasty treats.
Even the Hulk muscled in on some candy!

Our residents handed out candy and had a great time with the children. Here are a few shots of the creative costumes.

How did you celebrate Halloween?

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.

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.
