I am honored that our residents share their lives with us at The Patrician and I am so pleased to work with a team that appreciates the privilege and the opportunity to provide residents with a fresh and independent living community.

Our goal is for residents to always feel proud to call The Patrician home.  It is where we celebrate independence every day.

Community Director's signature at senior living in

There’s just something magical about living at The Patrician. The morning brings the gentle sound of sprinklers mixed with the singing of native birds as the sun crests the horizon. With it comes an energy—a newness. Another day of retirement where the only things on your to-do list are those you actually want to do. And what better place to enjoy another sunny day than University City, San Diego—recognized as one of the best places to live in the US.

Here you can spend the morning at a nearby coffee shop, the afternoon playing a round of golf at one of the area’s award-winning golf courses, and the evening at a romantic seaside restaurant as you watch the warm sun disappear for the night. But not to worry, tomorrow it will be back again. And you’ll be able to spend another day just like this one—in a community with plenty of great places to visit, surrounded by great friends and neighbors.

Enjoy more at The Patrician, A Merrill Gardens Community. Our community is designed to meet your individual needs and give you the freedom to be yourself. We offer the best in independent senior living from a family owned company that knows connection is everything.

A word from our residents

Meet your neighbor

I moved in April 2015 and have been very glad of my decision. The community is very comfortable, close to everything and you can’t beat the wonderful weather year round. I have found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. They really go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and happy. There are many activities (educational, social, physical, musical, art activities, health lectures, games, entertainment) to keep you active and healthy in spirit, mind, and body.

The dining room is incredible with offerings to keep everyone healthy and happy and the wait staff is most accommodating. It is like going to a first-class restaurant. I have also found the other residents to be very interesting, friendly, and just fun to be with.
