We are a family company, and we embrace the idea of family from our residents to our team members. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the family as well.

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 in 2014.

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