The manager was very rude and very unprofessional. All the employees seemed unhappy. Not a place for the senior living!

Description of The Academy, A Merrill Gardens Community


Located on the Banks of the Spokane River, The Academy offers spectacular views within a stately, upscale community. We provide everything seniors need to lead an active and healthy life. Ideally located, we are just minutes away from local medical facilities, shopping spots and dining destinations.

The Academy is owned and operated by Merrill Gardens, a family company that has been committed to providing an alternative to traditional retirement housing since 1993. As a resident-focused company, we strive to provide the best in retirement community living by supporting independence, individuality, privacy and the decision-making abilities of our residents.

Featured Amenities

Accommodations at The Academy are offered in studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans. Each apartment comes outfitted with a kitchenette, private bath and emergency call system for added peace of mind. All utilities, including television and Internet access but not telephone service, are included in one monthly cost. Small pets are also welcome.

Our Anytime Dining Program allows residents to eat what they want, when they want to, just like in their own home. We are happy to serve additional meals if residents wish to bring family or friends as guests. We also have a private dining room should a resident wish to have a party or family gathering.

Available Services

All accommodations at The Academy receive weekly housekeeping and linen services, and we happily provide scheduled transportation for errands and appointments upon request. For added convenience, we also offer salon and barber services right on site.

Assisted living residents receive around-the-clock services from trained and caring staff members. Help is available for a variety of daily tasks, including dressing, medication management, personal hygiene and ambulation.

The Academy is an inviting and well-equipped retirement community for seniors in and around Spokane.
