Senior Living. Redefined.


At The Merion, it's not just about retirement, it's about living well. Residents take advantage of ample opportunities to forge new friendships and enjoy a multitude of rich cultural events, with an emphasis on the arts and live musical performances and entertainment, relevant lectures, interactive games, tournaments, and more. Our residents take regular excursions to nearby Northwestern University, North Shore neighborhoods, and the magnificent city of Chicago that they can see from their own windows.

Beyond fun and enriching daily activities, The Merion offers abundant reasons to celebrate. From big-screen sports gatherings to lavish Holiday parties, Chef Anthony never ceases to impress and takes special care in making sure that the cuisine is as memorable as the event!
