Assisted Living Reviews for Thrive at Greer

August 07, 2015

By FranklynJ501

I visited this facility

I recently visited the welcome center. The ladies were very nice and informative and really took their time to get to know me and my mom. I felt like a weight had been lifted off of me. It's going to be a beautiful place and management seems genuinely excited to make it a great facility. We are waiting on a response from the application for VA aid and attendance before signing for a reservation. I just hope there is still a suite open. She would be so happy there.

About Thrive at Greer

Cast aside all of your preconceptions about senior living. We did when we created Thrive at Greer. Everything here – and we mean everything—is geared to making this part of your life the new beginning of a grand adventure. At a place where your life has value. With team members who are more than just team members—they’re your friends, dedicated to your every need. There’s a large veranda with courtyard views. And at night, you can even gaze at the stars from our second-floor terrace. Trust us, everyone’s going to look forward to visiting grandma and grandpa’s house.

Assisted Living is ideal for residents who value their independence but may need assistance with daily activities. Our community team members are raving fans of encouraging independence with assistance readily accessible at all times of day.

Memory Care is for our Elders who are living with some form of memory loss. Every member of the Thrive at Greer team is NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified. That includes everyone from the chefs and housekeepers to the concierge and nurses. The education allows us to interact with our memory care residents as unique individuals rather than objects in need of care. Residents are engaged with the goal of helping them recapture moments of memories and the recognition of loved ones.

What Makes Us Special

We’re located in the heart of Greer on Buncombe Road, just minutes from shopping, restaurants, houses of worship, and right across from the world-class Brushy Creek Medical Center. The property itself offers a modern setting with a home-like feel.
