A message from the
At the early age of twelve, I was fixing cabinets, mowing lawns, extracting carpets and other odd jobs in my aunt and uncle's retirement community. Almost thirty years later, as the general manager at Merrill Gardens at Auburn, I find myself doing many of the same things. I love being around seniors on a daily basis and positively impacting the quality of their lives.
I invite you to come experience the love, the dining, the activities, the care, the customer service and the fun!
