I have been General Manager at Merrill Gardens at Gilroy for over six years. I truly enjoy the feeling that I get when I come to work at my home away from home. Each day at our community is filled with special moments that reinforce why I love what I do - working with team members, residents and their families. 

I look forward to welcoming you home to Merrill Gardens at Gilroy!

Meet Your Neighbor

"After I sold my home, I wanted to live in a community with happy contented people. In 2013, I found that in Merrill Gardens at Gilroy. I love my apartment, volunteering, Anytime Dining, the programs and outings and the help that I received when I was ill. I even gave up my car because of the flexible transportation."

Marion Rizzuto - Resident at Merrill Gardens at Gilroy since 2013
