About Merrill Gardens, LLC
At Merrill Gardens our focus is always on the people who live and work in our communities.
Our commitment comes from the deep roots of our family company. Our founder, Richard Dwight (R.D.) Merrill, came to the Pacific Northwest in the 1890s to establish timber holdings. He was an innovator, the first to practice sustainable forestry, and his tradition of attention and thoughtfulness eventually grew to include the business of caring for people.
Merrill Gardens started with one community in Seattle, Washington in 1993 and we now have thousands of team members across the country. Through innovative programs and a determined commitment to residents and team members, Merrill Gardens is one of the most respected senior living providers in the country. We have 33 communities in eight states offering independent living, assisted living, and memory care and we are growing too, with eight new communities in development.
Our company is still privately owned and family-run, our chairman is a fourth-generation Merrill family member. The management and resources of the R. D. Merrill Company ensure a long-term commitment to quality, built on a strong foundation of family, community, and entrepreneurial spirit.
