I Believe I Can Fly!

Our residents took to the sky recently when they visited iFly Seattle to do some indoor sky diving.  Residents from Merrill Gardens at The University (WA) and Merrill Gardens at Renton Centre (WA) showed no fear, putting on their flying suits and going airborne! 

Once again our residents show us that age is just a number.  After learning the basics, they were up, up and away!

Easter at Merrill Gardens With The Seattle Sounders

Merrill Gardens residents received a treat this Easter, as members of Major League Soccer’s Seattle Sounders paid a visit. David Estrada, Patrick Ianni, Roger Levesque and Taylor Graham visited the community to celebrate Easter with the residents as part of the United We Serve campaign.

A large part of the Merrill Gardens experience is active living. But residents admitted that hanging out with professional soccer players exceeded the normal pace of a weekend in the community.

Players taught residents the finer points of the game, even to super beginners.

“The two ladies I was working with, had never touched a soccer ball before,” said Roger Levesque. “But they were scoring goals.  I mean, it was kind of impressive.”

In addition to the training, all of the players decorated cookies, played soccer, and chatted with the residents.

“We love being involved in the community, so it was so exciting to have the Sounders come,”added Shawna Dazey, Merrill Gardens Active Living Director.

This was a great time for all of our residents. To keep up with the activities going on at Merrill you can follow us on Facebook.
