    About Carolina Gardens Senior Living at Laurens

    Carolina Gardens at Laurens is an assisted living community located one block from West Main Street in the City of Laurens, South Carolina. Once the first hospital in Laurens, our historic building is nestled on a quiet residential street, conveniently located near the library, restaurants, parks, shopping, and health care offices. We have an open wooded area in our backyard where residents can see deer (sometimes eating our vegetable garden), listen to songbirds and watch the hummingbirds.

    Laurens is located a short distance from many major highways, I-26, I-385, and I-85. We are 30 miles south of Greenville, 45 miles west of Spartanburg, and 60 miles north of Columbia. The Greenville- Spartanburg International Airport is located 40 miles from Laurens, making our community easily accessible.

    Because of the rich, historic nature of our community, many family members and residents have their own unique stories of living nearby, having their children at the hospital, and even working here. Please tell us your story when you visit our community.

    Life Enrichment Programming

    Tell us what you love to do! Our Life Enrichment program schedules many activities and local outings. Enjoy activities beyond Bingo, such as baking treats for puppies at the shelter, writing cards to overseas military, or delivering handmade cards to children at Christmas. Residents also may learn about elder law, banking fraud, and veterans’ benefits. Or try their hand at beekeeping, soapmaking or playing the violin.

    One of our favorite things to do is enjoy our front porch rocking chairs in the Carolina sunshine. Out back, our patio is often host to summer barbecues, family cookouts, and Popsicle socials. Additionally, residents who enjoy the outdoors can take part in our garden club, planting a variety of flowers and vegetables throughout the spring, summer, and fall.

    Local outings keep us vibrant and in touch with our surrounding community. Our residents love to attend college baseball games, picnics at local parks and lakes, picking apples in the fall, and boat rides. You’ll find our spirited program encourages residents to lead a fulfilling and active life.

    Dining Program

    Join us for three meals a day, plus snacks! The dining experience is a great place to meet with friends and enjoy our friendly staff. Each meal is home-cooked and served in our dining room. We offer a wide variety of different proteins and sides with each meal. The menu changes seasonally to offer the same foods you would prepare at home. Our staff members are pleasant and meet with each resident so we may accommodate individual tastes, preferences, and food allergies.
