South Bay at Mount Pleasant is a five-star senior living provider, delivering residents luxury, high-end services and an unsurpassed retirement community experience at a superior value.
Their state-of-the-art facilities and upscale living arrangements give seniors the freedom to “live more and worry less,” according to South Bay’s Director of Marketing and Sales Denise Devanney. And during these uncertain times, it’s never been more important to feel safe while still enjoying quality of life.
The variety of South Bay’s services sets a standard of excellence, and their prime midtown location between Hungryneck Boulevard and Rifle Range Road provides convenient access to countless dinner, shopping and entertainment options. “We are right in the heart of the city,” noted South Bay’s Executive Director Tom Perregaux.
South Bay, which celebrated its second anniversary in October, is a full-service rental Life Plan community, or CCRC. The rental model offers a flexible financial option, which is what sets South Bay apart, according to Devanney.
While their competitors typically have a substantial entrance fee or buy-in up front, South Bay doesn’t require one, meaning residents maintain control of their assets. “You can experience a high-end lifestyle without the expensive buy-in and be confident in the safety and amenities that will be provided to you in your retirement years,” said Devanney.
A full continuum of care means that there is independent living, assisted living/memory care, onsite rehabilitation services and long-term skilled nursing care. As residents’ needs change, they can seamlessly transition among these levels of care.
For those seeking independent living options, the elegant and spacious apartments — 1,800 square feet on the larger end —vary from one-bedroom designs to two-bedroom open-concept floor plans, with or without a den. These luxurious accommodations come equipped with upscale finishes throughout, such as artisan hardwood floors, granite countertops and deluxe appliances. South Bay is also in the process of building new lakeside garden apartments, ranging from 1,600 to more than 2,000 square feet and slated for completion in winter 2021.
For health care accommodations, residents have priority access to Shem Creek Health Center, which houses South Bay’s assisted living, memory care and their state-of-the-art rehabilitation facility, offering physical, occupational and speech therapies.
More exclusive amenities abound, including three onsite dining venues available to independent living residents. The wellness director oversees the elite Wellness Center with an indoor heated saltwater pool, hot tub and fitness center featuring advanced equipment.
The Life Enrichment director ensures residents take advantage of all the comforts and conveniences that make life at South Bay carefree and fulfilling. These include a full-service salon and spa, an auditorium for watching movies or hosting parties, lakeside walking paths and exercise trails, a library, an arts studio, putting green, poker room, billiards and outdoor patio and seating areas.
South Bay also offers 24-hour concierge service with complimentary transportation services throughout the greater Charleston area.
