A message from the
General Manager

Working with seniors has been a lifelong passion of mine, and since 2004 I have enjoyed working for Merrill Gardens, a privately owned family company with a true commitment to excellence. I enjoy creating an environment of family, fun, friendships, and choice not only for my residents, but for my team as well.

We can't wait to welcome you to this beautiful community!
