    Merrill Gardens at First Hill didn?t look as robust as the other place we visited. The atmosphere felt a little bit depressing, but it was a good place. There were many active residents there. The staff seemed adequate and very good, but not quite as welcoming as in the other place we saw. The place looked lovely, and the dining area was nice.

    Great location in Seattle this Merrill Gardens community offers a moderate to higher acuity assisted living level of care. They have good food and dining anytime with a lot of choices to please everyone. They also offer a secured memory care and are priced competitively. They have a variety of activities and the staff is kind and caring. A good choice for the Seattle area.

    My mother toured the home and was very impressed with the staff. She liked the location and how nice the home looks.

    Not your typical Merrill Gardens community. This is a moderate to higher acuity assisted living building that specializes in catered care to meet the unique needs of their residents.

    This community is a high level care community that recently went through a change of management company's and a substantial remodel and updating of the apartments. They have a high level of nursing hours and can do two person transfers and other high care requirement for their residents. They are located in a quiet area very near the hospitals and doctors offices on what is called "Pill Hill". Apartments rates are very competitive. They also have secured memory care and a floor for those who have memory deficits but are not wander risks. Most of the residents are receiving services.
