A wonderful world after retirement and all the way into your senior years is exactly what Somerby Mount Pleasant offers. It’s an active retirement community that is full of life. Somerby residents enjoy maintenance-free living that allows them to live life to the fullest and embrace interests and activities that they’ve cultivated for years – or maybe just discovered.
“Our mission is to inspire and nurture successful living each and every day,” explained Paige Lacasse, community liaison for Somerby Mount Pleasant. “Our community is absolutely beautiful. We just completed a $1 million renovation earlier this year. More importantly, our staff is what really sets us apart. Our team of directors has over 100 years of collective experience in the senior living industry. Our staff members feel as though they are truly called to help seniors and their families. It’s much more than just a job to us.”
Somerby Mount Pleasant features 250 residences with independent living villas and apartments, as well as apartments dedicated to assisted living and memory care.
Having independent living, assisted living and memory care all on one campus allows residents to get the care they require as their health care needs change without having to make multiple moves. It allows a resident to remain in the familiar surroundings of the Somerby community with their friends and staff members who become family.
“We have guest suites available for family members or friends that want to stay on-site while visiting,” said Lacasse. “Families love to visit during special events like our holiday celebrations and recent oyster roast. They also enjoy our weekly Sunday brunch.”
The community features the Chateau Restaurant, movie theater, library, full-service beauty salon, fitness center, indoor heated saltwater pool, art studio and walking trails.
Somerby offers a variety of living and care options, such as restaurant style dining, scheduled transportation and outings, a wide variety of daily social and fitness activities, as well as weekly housekeeping and linen service.
Further, Somerby provides individualized, professional assistance with a licensed nurse on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“Surprisingly, it is not required in the state of South Carolina to have a nurse on duty all day, every day. We also have a 24/7 concierge so that our residents’ needs are met at all hours of the day or night,” said Lacasse.
Residents who require additional care have the option of assisted living, which offers the same level of luxury and engagement as independent living. The staff approaches resident care with compassion, confidence and clinical experience.
For residents who require more cognitive support, Somerby offers the care that families need to rest assured that their loved ones are safe. Their approach is defined by the belief that, above all, their residents deserve respect.
“We have a vibrant activities calendar featuring events such as lunches downtown or on Shem Creek, trips to the Charleston Symphony, fishing outings, Women’s Breakfast, Man Cave Monday, happy hours three times a week, arts and crafts classes, card games, dance lessons and much more,” Lacasse said.”
