A word from our residents
Meet Your Neighbor
"I moved here on Christmas day in 2017, as we entered the front door we found the most beautifully decorated building and were greeted by cordial staff with open arms. Merrill Gardens at Monterey is located among many trees and as I look out my apartment windows I am able to enjoy this beautiful forest.
I look forward to daily meals conveniently served anytime throughout the day. Our monthly calendar is filled with daily activities such as outings, shopping trips, bridge games, craft sessions, swimming in the pool and movies in the theater. I have formed great friendships with other residents who have come from different backgrounds and locations."
