Soak up the sun at The Hampshire retirement community in Merced, CA. Our senior living community is located in a residential neighborhood just minutes from the city's — and country's — top sites. Within a few blocks of this independent senior living community, you'll find the creekside walking trails of Fahrens Park and wildflower-strewn playing fields of Yosemite Ave Dog Park.

This unique city is thriving with great events. Experience aviation history each June at the Merced Airport just four miles away or appreciate the arts at free exhibits at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center in Downtown Merced. Located just minutes away, you can catch a matinee at the Regal Hollywood Merced. Known as the Gateway to Yosemite, you have the opportunity to retrace the original route along Hwy 140. 

The Hampshire is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification, the 2018 Great Place to Work certification, and the 2017 SeniorAdvisor Best of Senior Living award.

Pets Make Life Better

Furry friends are welcomed as residents at The Hampshire. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

Stay Connected With Technology and WiFi

The Hampshire is equipped with WiFi access to help you stay connected throughout common areas. You can use community desktop computers to stay up to date, or you can connect your personal devices to the WiFi.

We host "Tech Tuesdays," where residents learn about technology from our receptionist on a weekly basis. Learn how to program your television, computer, and phone, and ask questions about technology issues.

Travel and Adventure Is Available

The exclusive Travel & Stay program offers residents exciting opportunities to travel around the country, with free stays of up to seven days at any of Holiday Retirement’s more than 260 communities. Three chef-prepared meals are included with each trip. Visit all 43 states or just choose a favorite new location or two.

Lend a Helping Hand

Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. Residents at The Hampshire are working to create a program to thank and support their local firefighters. We often have kids from the community volunteer; they love visiting with our residents.

We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
