Mission Statement

Our mission is to enrich and improve the lives of residents and those connected to our community. YOU can play are part in that!


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! Connect with a population of folks who have so much to teach us through their lived experience. 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. There’s no limit to the benefits social connectedness and intergenerational relationships can have on you and our residents, especially with the continuing social isolation impacts of COVID-19.
