Meet Your Neighbor

"I love living at Merrill Gardens!  My first impression when my daughters brought me to tour the community was, “I’m coming here!” There's so much to enjoy, from the activities, residents and staff, I truly feel like part of a large happy family. My precious dog Maggie and I couldn't be happier or safer."
