    About Carolina Gardens Senior Living at Lexington

    Carolina Gardens at Lexington is an assisted living and memory care community located just outside of downtown Lexington, South Carolina. We are near Highway 1 behind Wolf’s Fitness Center and one mile from Interstate 20. The community is surrounded by restaurants, boutiques, shopping, and the Lexington Public Library, and is seven minutes from Lexington Medical Center.

    Carolina Gardens is a one-story building designed specifically for seniors. You will feel calm as you visit our beautifully landscaped grounds, which are home to willow trees, tall pines, walking paths, and a large covered carport with plenty of seating for beautiful days. We have two courtyards that include raised garden beds, a greenhouse, and a grill for your next barbeque.

    Life Enrichment Programming

    At Carolina Gardens at Lexington, we are all about giving our residents a purpose in their new chapter of life! We encourage residents to continue to maintain and build upon their life skills in a fun, creative, and challenging family atmosphere.

    We provide Life Enrichment programs based around five areas of need: cognitive, physical, spiritual, social, and creative/emotional. Whether your loved one is in memory care or assisted living, our activities are based on the interest and participation of all of our residents. What sets our programming apart from other communities is simply that we go the extra step. Our activities include Bible studies, woodworking, art classes, ice cream socials and celebrations, baking classes, and more!

    Local outings keep us vibrant and in touch with our surrounding community. In addition to visiting local shops and restaurants, you can find us singing at the Agape Hospice House on a weekly basis. Our spirited program encourages residents to lead fulfilling and active lives.

    Dining Program

    Join us for three meals a day, plus snacks! The dining experience is a great way to meet with friends and enjoy our friendly staff. Each meal is home cooked and served in our dining room. Order from our delicious menu or take advantage of our full salad bar. Our warm and friendly staff members meet with each resident so we may accommodate individual tastes, preferences, and food allergies.

    Memory Care Neighborhood

    Memory care refers to the specific care for a person with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or another memory impairment. Specialized care may range from cueing to requiring a secured setting to prevent elopement.

    Starting with the same care and services as assisted living, our memory care program builds on the resident’s current abilities. We incorporate daily structure, fitness, and physical and occupational therapy to help each resident complete a daily routine and maintain functional abilities as long as possible.

    Our primary goal is safety for all residents. Consistent staffing helps residents feel comfortable and confident during their care. Through our dementia-specific trained employees, we are able to deliver quality care to our memory care neighborhoods.

    At Carolina Gardens at Lexington, we use activities to help reduce residents’ agitation, improve their mood, and encourage social interaction. Popular activities include morning coffee and news, listening to music, spiritual programs, ice cream socials, reminiscing, trivia, and puzzles. One-on-one sensory activities may also be used to help residents relax and have a good night’s rest.

    Learn more about memory care.

    Short-Term Respite Care

    Residents in short-term respite care receive all of the amenities and care available in our assisted living or memory care options, but for a shorter, predetermined length of stay. Respite care for loved ones who may need a little help after a hospital or rehab stay, or when caregivers plan a family vacation or just need some time to relax and recharge. We are here for you. Call and ask us about our respite care package.
