Senior Living with what matters most in mind.

From the very first moment you arrive at our gorgeous Sea Island property on the banks of the Beaufort River, it’s clear that The Retreat at Lady’s Island takes a unique approach to senior living in Beaufort, SC. Private and semi-private assisted living suites and studios offer sophisticated comfort, with sweeping views of the Beaufort Marina and Woods Memorial Bridge from a cozy community lounge on every floor. Historic downtown Beaufort sits just minutes across the water, with shopping on Bay Street, delicious dining, and attractions at USCB Center for the Arts.

The caring and compassionate staff at The Retreat at Lady’s Island apply a whole-person philosophy to senior care at our community near Red Oak. We look to the National Wellness Institute’s “Six Dimensions of Wellness” to serve as guideposts that ensure each individual is seen in the full light of their abilities, preferences, and potential. Well-rounded good health strives toward a purposeful life of emotional, physical, cognitive, spiritual, and social wellbeing.

Here, we live, love, and learn among friends.

When it comes to your loved one, EVERYTHING matters.
