A word from our residents

Meet your neighbor.

Marvin Kay says that as soon as he saw the penthouse suite layout of Merrill Gardens at Lafayette, he knew he was home and he has been happy to be part of the community ever since. He was one of the very first residents to move into the community when it opened two years ago. 

He attributes his happiness to the wonderful staff, friendly neighbors, and beautiful scenery in Lafayette.
