Independent Living Now Open!

Thrive on Skidaway

Come To Live Here.

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

Come To Live Here.

Walk in and see a group of young moms huddled in a cozy booth, coffee in hand, soaking in the parenting wisdom of one of our Thrive on Skidaway residents. Around a nearby table, there is a group of young, ambitious businessmen sharing a beer with several Thrive residents who are assisting in refining a business plan. At its core, Thrive Senior Living is about building community. It’s about empowering you to make the most of everyday living – building meaningful relationships, having a sense of purpose and giving back to the local community.

Here, boredom is not an option. How about a game of pickleball or working up a sweat in the barre studio? After a hard day of play, you can enjoy spending time with friends by the fire pit or having a cocktail while watching a classic in the movie theater. And there is no shortage of local attractions. Thrive on Skidaway is located on Skidaway Island in Georgia, one of the most unique island communities in the country… well-known for its waterfront properties and golf courses. And—we’re only a short distance from downtown Savannah, Georgia, a cultural and shopping destination. Come visit us, and you’ll know why we say, this is where older adults come to live (and where their children wish they could live too).

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: Independent Living, Assisted Living & Memory Care

MAKE THE BEST DECISION

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.

Independent Living is for our active residents who are looking to downsize (or right-size, as we like to call it) or find a close-knit community of friends and neighbors. You can “choose your own adventure” and take part in our exhaustive list of daily social events or retreat to the peaceful confines of your private suite. It’s kinda like a cruise ship on land. And you’re the captain.

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 on Skidaway 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.
