  • Great value and care

    We compared assisted living options in Santa Barbara and were not able to find the value and quality that we found at Merrill Gardens. They have been very supportive, caring, flexible and genuinely concerned...

  • Outstanding Care for dad

    We are happy with the care here for my father. They keep me updated on his care. The community is very clean and taken care of. We are happy with the meals and he is happy with the variety and the portions....

  • Enjoy Our Beginning

    It is all going well for me and my husband since moving. We are waiting for a bigger room until it becomes available. Everything from the meals to how clean it is has been good.
