Goodbye, January!


What a fabulous first month of 2024! We received so many wonderful pictures throughout the month, we had to share some of our favorites (especially the birthday ones!).

Mary, a resident at Merrill Gardens at Santa Maria (CA), celebrated her 100th birthday in January! The community threw a big party in her honor complete with flowers, balloons, champagne, and of course — cake!

Over at Merrill Gardens at Lafayette (CA), residents had some fondue fun! They dipped all sorts of veggies in cheese fondue and absolutely loved it.

Merrill Gardens at Auburn (WA) took a trip to the nail salon to enjoy mani-pedis. This was much needed to get through a dreary Seattle January! 

In North Carolina, Truewood by Merrill, New Bern enjoyed music therapy with Mary! They sing, dance, play instruments, and have a great time doin' it!

Merrill Gardens at Campbell (CA) resident, Joyce, turned 104 years young in January! How great are these pictures from the celebration?! Happy 104th birthday to this queen!

We hope you had as great of a start to the year as we did. Can't wait to see where the rest of the year takes us!
