I've lived at Merrill Gardens for more than five years now and this is my home. I can't think of another place I would rather be. The staff is like family. They are always available to help when needed or just to chat and make you feel better. The surroundings are beautiful but comfortable. There are always friends in the large open living room either playing games or just enjoying the ambiance. The food is good and the dining room is open all day so one can eat whenever. I've come to think of the staff and residents as my family and I love them dearly.

My mother just moved into Merrill Gardens about a month ago, right after my father recent passing. Lilia was the one who helped us and greeted us to Merrill Gardens. We instantly felt a connection with the staff there. Everyone made it feel so warm and welcoming. We could not be more happy with choosing Merrill Gardens. I feel extremely lucky that we found this place for my mother. I know this is somewhere I can see her living for the rest of her life. It has a sense of community, so many activities, walking distance to just about anything you need, trails along the Cedar River, the food is good, the personal communication between the staff and myself,.. I can not find one single thing that I would change or give it anything less than 5 stars for. I would give it 10 stars if I could. There is No place better. Top notch!

My mother lived at Merrill Gardens Renton Centre for 11 years. It was a very good senior residence choice when she first moved in, and has has continuously improved over time. When she moved there in her early 80's she was independent, still driving, shopping, visiting family and friends, etc. She just wanted to downsize and simplify in preparation for the future. Over 11 years time, existing and future aging and medical issues would gradually slow her down and reduce her mobility and independence. But the many friendships she made over the years, both with residents and staff, sustained her quality of living. She passed recently, but was able to stay in familiar surroundings in her apartment through hospice care. The care and support given by the remarkable staff during this difficult time, from top to bottom, was amazing. We are grateful to all the staff at Merrill Gardens for the dedication and compassion, and love, that they consistently bring to work every day. They richly deserve a Five Star rating.

I have many relatives living here and whenever I visit the staff are so friendly. When we are here for brunch, you can tell they put a lot of time and effort into making it inviting for all of us. They greet my grandma with genuine sincerity.

After much research on assisted living facilities from Seattle to Bellevue, NewCastle to Kirkland and finally to Renton my siblings and I have placed our mother in a temporary facility while waiting for availability at Merrill Gardens in Renton. Our mother has been living at MG at Renton for 4 months now and we have no regrets except praise for Shelley, Lilia and their wonderful staff. The location is not far from the center of Renton yet tucked away on a quiet street. The environment is extremely kempt, spacious, functional, invitingly attractive but most importantly there's a very warm and homely feeling. A resident could take long walks outside for fresh air on the second floor patio all within secured railings and without going outside of their compound. Their versatile monthly activity list includes something enjoyable for every resident. Each holiday or season would bring special events, i.e., live performances. There is no set time for meals so residents can choose when to have breakfast, lunch or dinner between 7am - 7pm without having to worry about missing a set scheduled meal time. Their food is made of fresh quality ingredients and there is an abundance of fresh fruits for the residents at all times. The chief chef, Heidi, polls for likes and dislikes from the residents and works hard to prepare and serve palatable meals. All staff members are well trained on being service oriented so you won't find a a discourteous staff member. My siblings and I are grateful to the team that runs Merrill Gardens in Renton as we know our mother is in good hands. Thank you very much.
