I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My aunt is in rehab at Brightwater. It's wonderful. They've done a great job with her. I find it to be a very reputable place. It's a fairly large complex with constant care, partial care, and housing just for elderly people who want to be close. It's very nice, but it's the most expensive in this area. They have a great program, musicians who come in on a weekly basis and play for them, and a board with activities that people can participate in. The food is very good. The staff is attentive and very forthcoming with information.

I thought Brightwater was very nice. The rooms were very nice. I had a very good friend who was a patient there one time after his heart surgery. They had a larger and more skilled care. They were known for having very good medical care. I thought the staff was excellent. I had dinner there a couple of times, and they had excellent meals. The place was very clean and well-kept. They had a very large and excellent exercise room and a nice pool.

Brightwater was the first facility I went to and was not really impressed. The staff who accommodated me took me to someone else’s room, which I thought he should have not done due to privacy. The room I saw was nice and higher class. He mainly talked about finances, and I could not afford it. People were just on their own. Overall, the place was nice but didn’t seem family-oriented at all.

Description of Brightwater

At Brightwater, it is our number one goal to help our senior residents maintain their independence while living long, healthy and happy lives. To accomplish this goal, we provide cost-efficient retirement living that takes away most of life's daily burdens and replaces them with exciting opportunities to make new friends and have fun. And because we are a continuing care community, we welcome seniors in every stage of life whether they need the extra support of assisted living or more intensive skilled nursing care.

Brightwater is owned and operated by Senior Living Communities, a company that has been a leader in the industry for more than 22 years. Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, Senior Living Communities manages several retirement properties throughout the Southeast and Midwest.

Featured Amenities

To accommodate different lifestyle and health needs, our community offers a wide range of housing options. From our spacious, stand-alone cottage homes to our luxurious villa apartments, residents have their choice of nine floor plans that feature full kitchens, in-unit washers and dryers, and designer finishes, such as granite countertops and hardwood floors.

At the heart of our community is the Clubhouse at Brightwater, which houses our many communal amenities including an Internet Café, reading room and library, lounge, dining room, pool and Wellness Center.

Available Services

At Brightwater, we offer the full range of senior services from independent and assisted living to memory and skilled nursing care. Residents of The Retreat, our home for seniors in need of supportive services, receive professional assistance and care 24 hours a day in our specially designed and secure community. We take care of everything from housekeeping and laundry to managing medications and driving.

Seniors in need of more intensive medical care may take advantage of our on-site skilled nursing and rehabilitation program which provides 24-hour care overseen by a registered nurse and on-call Medical Director. Physical, occupational and speech therapy is available and may include sessions in our indoor therapy pool.

For the retiree who wants it all, Brightwater offers exceptional senior living in the heart of beautiful Myrtle Beach.
