Benefits of Selecting the Brightwater Lifestyle
Attended an informational presentation after previously hearing a presentation of the Brightwater facility's various attributes. Toured one of the apartments and the stand-along home, both of which were quite nice. People seem friendly and the other amenities available are quite nice. The process for selling a current residence and moving to Brightwater seems quite comprehensive & client-friendly. It is good to know that such a facility exists for when the time comes that we need additional downsizing & more assistance with daily living. A very nice alternative to owning and managing your own home. In addition to the initial living arrangements, should the time come when a resident requires more assistance, the other facilities are within the same complex for easy access. Rather than have to be sent to an off-site facility for care, an easy change can be made to provide exactly the type of care needed.
Our opinion of the Brightwater community
Brightwater is a first class community! We were wonderfully informed about all that is available to us there by Melinda and Alice who are wonderful ambassadors for Brightwater. Every aspect of senior living has been well thought out and provided.
gathering info for a decision
Excellent program, very informative, lots of good Q&A.
Well worth the time and excellent staff !
Never a Dull Moment
One thing you can say about Brightwater is that there is never a dull moment. You can go on trips to wineries, visit beautiful Brook Green Gardens, go on boat rides on nearby lakes and rivers as well as enjoy a wide variety of in house and outside entertainment. If you like to read and do crafts there are several from which you can choose. The variety of events means that there is something for all tastes. Sometimes it is just pleasant to sit outside, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, soak up the sun, and chat with your neighbors. Recently, I have become a member of the Resident Advisory Council, editor of the Brightwater newsletter, and chairman of the Book Keys book club. This involvement has allowed me to give back to the community that I love so much.

Moved Site Unseen- Very Happy!
My husband and I moved to Brightwater in 2013 site unseen. We had been living in Connecticut for many years and decided we would like a warmer climate and available medical options for my husband. Of great help to us, was Alice Yerkes. She helped us every step of the way and made our decision and move to such easier. Brightwater has numerous activities, the staff are great and always so very helpful. It is a wonderful community for retirement living "at its best". Since my husband passed away, I am so very happy that we made the decision to move to Brightwater and I have formed so many friendships.

Right Place for Us!
My wife and I moved into Brightwater in July 2014. In our search for a Continuing Care Retirement Community, we visited three communities and saw many more on the internet. We both agreed that Brightwater was the right place for us. The staff here is very accommodating and the Dining Service is excellent. We were also very pleased to find that our apartment had its own washer and dryer. Some facilities we visited had only community laundry. We would certainly recommend Brightwater.

Luxury Cruise Ship on Land
My wife and I moved to Brightwater October 1, 2014 and it is more than we had hoped it would be. There are many amenities, a very friendly and helpful staff and happy content residents. The Social Calendar and Wellness Center is full of activities everyday in which you can participate. I describe Brightwater as a “Luxury Cruise Ship on land.” We like to travel and not owning a home gives us the freedom that we need without the home owning responsibility. Our children live in NJ and Australia and they don’t have to worry about us and we won’t burden them with our care. Our lawyer daughter-in-law in AU thanked us for taking charge of our lives so they don’t have to worry about us. We love the lifestyle that Brightwater affords us to have! Their slogan says it all - Live Long - Live Well - Live!

I moved to Brightwater in 2012 and have not looked back or regretted my decision to live here in the Brightwater community. There is something here for everyone. I was looking for an active community- one that I could be a part of and enjoy my retirement to the fullest.
For me it is keeping active and the Wellness staff is top notch. The monthly schedules are filled with exercise classes (nothing like getting a good work-out along with other members) to share pleasure of laughing and groaning and feeling better when the day is done- just to start it all over again the next day with different classes. By the end of each week form your fingers to your toes, you feel wonderful. If you also want to work-out on the equipment in the gym and you are not familiar with the equipment or what equipment to use to get the results you are looking for in your work-outs- the staff has Supervised Gym Time to assist you.
And if you enjoy exercising in the pools (in-door and out) you will not be disappointed.

Found by Happenstance and Ever Glad!
We found Brightwater by happenstance and are we ever glad! We were exploring potential homes for longtime friends and our friends and our first impression was over the top. Brightwater is filled with beauty everywhere and the home-like feel grabbed us immediately. We found the staff to be especially welcoming and the residents very friendly. The many programs for wellness, entertainment, and socializing help keep us active and involved. Before moving to Brightwater, we looked at many options in several states, but none offered everything on our wish list. We decided to move while physically able because it was important for it to be our decision and not a burden on our children. After our first year here, we can honestly say it has exceeded our expectations in almost every measure. Besides all that, winter in South Carolina is a delight compared to Ohio. We have found a home!

They are staffed for nursing care, and memory care, rehab, and assisted living, and they are beautiful!! It's slightly more expensive than where we were, but they include things that we have to purchase ourselves now. We think they are well worth it. They are very friendly, they have a pool for physical therapy and rehab and things. The marketing director, Charlene Adelstone is wonderful. They have a four staff members to 24 patient ratio.
