A message from the
I love that Merrill Gardens is a family-owned organization aligned with my passion to create a feeling of “home”. To see the smiles on resident's faces, and to hear the amazing stories they share, I know I picked the right community as General Manager.
I am privileged to lead a dedicated team with the mission of enriching the lives of our residents by creating a fun, safe and fulfilling environment. Come join the Merrill Gardens family and let me be the first to welcome you home.
We Love It Here. You Will Too.
This is not your grandmother's retirement community. This brand new community features tall ceilings and lots of windows for letting the sunshine in. Enjoy being close to dining, shopping, and entertainment, and it's just a short drive to our state's capital. Old Sacramento and Lake Folsom are also nearby. Medical facilities are abundant and easy to access.
Our spacious apartments have kitchenettes, and there are lots of cozy common areas for gathering throughout the community. When you want to get outside, take a stroll on the walking paths that weave through our beautifully landscaped grounds.
