I have been part of the senior living industry for seven years and I have a passion for serving seniors. I enjoy working for Merrill Gardens because of our supportive culture that embraces diversity, empowerment and bringing joy to others. I truly enjoy creating an environment of family, fun, friendships, and choice not only for residents, but for our team members as well.
This stunning community received the Best of 50+ Silver Design Award and it's easy to see why - distinctive architecture, spacious courtyard, and a location in the heart of Lafayette make it a winner all around. Step outside your door and stroll to fine dining and world class shops, or hop on BART for a quick trip into San Francisco.
The spacious apartments offer full kitchens and washers and dryers in most units, and there are lots of cozy common areas including a lovely library and modern fitness center. Our community offers underground parking and free WiFi throughout the building for residents.
