Welcome home to Merrill Gardens at Carolina Park!
Nestled here in the Lowcountry, Merrill Gardens at Carolina Park offers a close-knit community where people dine, play, rest and enjoy the best things in life together. I love the opportunity to assist residents, providing physical and emotional needs while developing close and rewarding relationships.
I think there is nothing better in this world than to sit and have a conversation that allows me to learn about values, perspectives, history and culture from different generations. Working at Merrill Gardens has allowed me to fulfill my life’s dreams of working for a group of wonderful individuals - our residents!
