Starting the search for a senior living community that’s the right fit can be an overwhelming process; there are apprehensions about leaving your home, the feeling of losing your independence, an array of care options to sift through and unexpected fees. South Bay at Mount Pleasant is changing that perception, offering maintenance-free, luxury living with a continuum of care in place and an emphasis on embracing activities that fit your lifestyle.
Located on 27 acres in a mixed-use area in the heart of Mount Pleasant, and planned to open this summer, South Bay is convenient to the beaches on Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms and minutes from downtown Charleston. The area’s picturesque views, tranquil ambience, waterways and sandy stretches are perfect for your own daily activities but also sure to be one more reason for frequent visitors.
The month-to-month apartment rentals are designed to enhance a community lifestyle, bringing neighbors together for everything from lively dinner conversations to specialized exercise classes and more.
“The South Bay lifestyle is extraordinarily active and encourages our residents to be social,” said Director of Development and Marketing Jerry Cooper. “From lifelong learning classes through local universities to outings to plays, symphonies and other cultural opportunities, residents have a full and ever-changing range of options.”
There are three on-site dining options that offer a variety and change of scenery to fit your every mood and craving. Patriot’s Pub gives residents and their guests a casual place to unwind. The full-service bar serves tapas and small plates – perfect for sharing with friends both old and new, or a good place to meet for a pre-dinner cocktail. For a more formal restaurant setting, Sullivan’s Grill’s seasonal menu includes weekly specials and fresh, house-made ingredients. For those looking for a light meal before heading out on the town, Sweetgrass Market serves house-made soups, salads, entrées, specialty sandwiches and daily blue-plate specials, along with cocktails and select beers and wines.
South Bay at Mount Pleasant also has fitness and wellness programs to fit each individual’s needs on a personal basis, from beginners to fitness enthusiasts. Programs range from diverse levels of indoor aquatics like the Arthritis Aquatic Program and Hydro Circuit training sessions to cardio and strength conditioning classes, tai chi, yoga and personal training sessions. Fall prevention and advanced balance classes are available, in addition to special programming that accommodates a range of health concerns such as heart conditions and vision or mobility challenges. The on-site spa offers a welcoming place to relax after exercising.
“South Bay gives our residents a chance to enhance their lifestyle within a thriving community,” Cooper continued. “Being active and social keeps you feeling young, and the design enhances and encourages everyone to do that – not to mention that the great location and full range of care options and quality of care certainly set it apart.”
