A memorable visit to Merrill Gardens at the University

We were extremely pleased over our visit to Merrill Gardens at the University. You folks earn a five-star rating from Edie and Jim [removed]. We're not yet residents, but we are very much comforted to know that Merrill Gardens at the University is there waiting for us when the time comes, which may not be that far off in the future. We will be return to Seattle in late August and hope to have the opportunity to stop by again. Be sure and say hello for us to Pete and Ruth. We fell in love with their garden apartment. Cheers!

I toured this facility while looking for a place for my Mother-In-Law. The atmosphere of this community seemed lively and intellectually stimulating. A lot of the residents here are retired teachers or professors. This was my runner-up choice and the reason why I didn’t pick it is that it was just a little farther away than the other facility. They had a lot of activities however there aren't as many residents as elderly as my in-law. The person who gave me the tour was very knowledgeable and impressive. I would recommend this facility to other families.

I went on a tour here and the staff was helpful and answered all of my questions. This was an overall nice facility but wasn't in our price range. I would recommend families tour a few different places before making a decision.
