A word from our residents
Meet Your Neighbor
Following a career in education, Orlo Deeds and his wife retired to North San Diego County. After he lost his beloved wife he decided to look into senior living. Orlo says Merrill Gardens of Oceanside was clearly the best choice for a number of reasons, but one thing stood out to him that he didn’t find anyplace else.
“Merrill Gardens helps you do what YOU want to do,” says Orlo. He likes that resident’s individual choices are important and he loves the variety of activities and the outings. Orlo says there is no reason to ever feel lonely here. Another big plus is the restaurant style dining that is available all day so he can dine on his own schedule. He absolutely loves the food and the full menu choices.
Orlo is so pleased that he chose Merrill Gardens, and it is a joy having him here. His children love that he’s so happy too.
