Merrill Gardens at ChampionsGate senior living community is proud to work with Thriving In Place to provide a social support system for seniors within Celebration.

Thriving In Place offers weekly lunches, monthly outings, and transportation support for their members. They help local seniors feel a sense of community, knowing that they are not alone. Merrill Gardens at ChampionsGate sponsors this group to support the good work they are doing within the community, in addition to helping members gain awareness of Merrill Gardens.

Merrill Gardens sponsors the luncheon the first Friday of every month – we bring in food cooked in our kitchen, so people can taste the quality meals prepared by our chefs. We have also hosted the luncheon at our community two times, providing for a fun outing and a chance to experience our dining program first-hand.

Thriving In Place requires members to live in Celebration, with the only exception being extended to members who move to Merrill Gardens at ChampionsGate. This is a great partnership opportunity to benefit seniors who live in Celebration.
