Augusta assisted living community entrance

Come To Live Here.

We believe that if a community’s focus is strictly on care, they don’t care enough. At Thrive at Augusta, great care is just a by-product of bigger and better things.

Come To Live Here.

We’ve taken the blueprint for traditional senior living and put it right where it belongs—the trash can. It wasn’t hard. Traditional senior living communities stink. We believe that if a community’s focus is strictly on care, they don’t care enough.

At Thrive at Augusta, great care is just a by-product of bigger and better things but that’s not enough. There’s the property—situated on 17 acres, surrounding a horse farm, where generations of Augustans have learned to ride. Lots of space, lots of history. And just next door, one of the hottest emerging neighborhoods in town.

When you visit, be sure to meet our team members. We’ve got a feeling you’re going to become fast friends. In fact, we know you will, because each and every one of them is dedicated to the person who matters to you the most – your loved one. And, if the need arises in the years to come, know that all of our team members are NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified, which is a mouthful to say, but simply means that our team members are prepared and qualified to interact with your loved one as a unique human being, not a case study. Come visit us. We’re conveniently located in Augusta, Georgia, but miles off the beaten path from traditional senior living communities.

Meet the Team.

Thrive team members (employees) come to work each day to build long lasting friendships with our older adults. Many of our key leaders bring valuable experience to our industry from other fields. Simply put, our leaders believe that if we treat our team well, they will, in turn, love our residents well.

What We Offer: Assisted Living & Memory Care


One-size-fits-all is fine for hats and ponchos, but doesn’t cut it when it comes to senior living. That’s why Thrive has a variety of options to suit your specific needs.

Assisted Living is for people who value their independence and are competently in charge of their lives, but need some extra assistance with daily activities. Our kick-butt (pardon our French) team members are on call 24/7 to offer as much (or as little) help as you need.

Memory Care is for those who are living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other forms of changing cognitive abilities. Every member of the Thrive at Augusta team is NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified, this includes everyone from the chefs and housekeepers to the concierge and nurses. In a nutshell, it means we know what the heck we’re doing. And it means everyone on our team is trained to treat residents like people, not patients.

(Thrive partners with outside healthcare providers to enhance our overall community experience. Though these partners align with our core healthcare practices and philosophies to provide the best level of care for our residents, these partners may not require NIDE certification like our Thrive team members.)
