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.
