Our Story

Designed to be different.

A Unique Approach to Living

Carolina Meadows offers an alternative to traditional retirement communities, providing an array of villa and apartment options, an extensive range of services and features to meet the evolving needs of our residents, and an unmatched value proposition:

  • A sustainable fee-for-service, equity-based community
  • Resident participation and engagement which enhance satisfaction
  • 800+ residents reflecting diverse backgrounds and perspectives


Our unique approach has fostered a vibrant environment for both residents and staff for more than 35 years.

Our Residents Come First

Carolina Meadows is a non-profit, fully accredited continuing care retirement community (CCRC). Our resident-driven culture allows residents’ well-being and concerns to be our top priority.

Carolina Meadows, Inc. and the Carolina Meadows Resident Association work together to create a retirement community where our residents come first.

Our board members—four of whom are residents—meet quarterly to develop policies to serve current and future residents.
