Description

Carolina Meadows is a nonprofit Continuing Care Retirement Community. We offer a continuum of services to our older adult residents who live in Independent Living, Assisted Living, Nursing Care or Memory Care.

YOU can brighten an older adult’s day and gain real-world experience that will broaden your perspective of what you and they can do to serve each other!

If you like learn about different people and cultures, play games or music, listen to and tell stories or share your hobbies or technical expertise, we are the place for you.
