There is nothing that we don’t like about living here.”

Merle enjoys the feeling of home at the community. “We truly enjoy living in a community where there is so much opportunity to express ourselves and maintain our independence: There are many activities throughout the week that we can enjoy as a couple and with our friends: music, exercises, outings that include nature walks. We love spending time with other couples, and our friends.”
