What distinguishes Cascades Verdae from other retirement communities in the area?

Simply put, we are the largest Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in South Carolina. With an ideal location near downtown Greenville, we are the cornerstone of the exclusive Verdae master-planned, mixed-use community. Our tranquil, wooded setting complements our metropolitan advantages because it offers the best of both worlds – peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to find great entertainment when you want it.

But most importantly, it’s our commitment to affording you the best that life has to offer through affordability, wellness, flexible dining dollars and a continuum of care.

You worked hard for years and now you want to enjoy the fruits of your labor by ridding yourself of the burdens of home ownership. Cascades Verdae allows you to enjoy all that life has to offer by investing your money in a refundable occupancy agreement.

The on-site, full-service Wellness Center is a focal point of The Weller Life®. Our full time Wellness Director works with you personally to make sure you are working on improving your quality of life at every age and stage. It’s no wonder the Assisted Living Federation of America recognized our wellness initiatives as The Best of The Best Wellness Programming for three consecutive years.

Unique to Cascades Verdae, Flexible Dining Dollars allow you options to use your money as you see fit. Family in for a visit? Host them as your guest in the private dining room. Monies leftover at months end? Not to worry. Your balance rolls forward to next month for you to enjoy. And, you can take a cash equivalent percentage of unused Flex Dining Dollars once a year. After all, it’s your money.

The goal of The Weller Life® is for you to live independently as long as you possibly can. But should needs change, it’s reassuring to know that help, from Assisted Living to Alzheimer’s Care and Skilled Nursing or Rehab, is available on-site at Cascades Verdae. And our healthcare is staffed by a Registered Nurse, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Nobody else is providing that level of on-site, expert coverage.

What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community?

A Continuing Care Retirement Community (or CCRC as it is commonly called) is a community designed to give people a supportive network while they transition through their senior years. CCRCs contain all levels of retirement and long term care: independent living, assisted living, typically Alzheimer’s care and skilled nursing.

The difference at Cascades is…we want people to live independently for the rest of their lives and never have to experience healthcare. To do so, we’ve incorporated an exciting but invigorating wellness program, provide exceptional food (with healthy options), supportive services in our Members’ homes and actively encourage our Members to take advantage of the social events, the parties, the educational seminars and live their life to the fullest.

Like most CCRCs, we offer healthcare services as well – assisted living, Alzheimer’s and memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation. Our community is staffed with caregivers and team members who live by the golden rule: “Treat others as they wish to be treated.” Independent cottages – independent villas – assisted living – Alzheimer’s care – skilled nursing – rehabilitation can all be found in our continuing care retirement community.

We’ve got a theater in the middle of the clubhouse with stadium seating. Movies, old and new, are shown on a regular basis. Every seat is a good seat! Every kernel of popcorn’s tasty!

We’ve got a pub in the clubhouse where our Members toss darts, shoot pool, play cards, catch the latest ballgame, or simply drink and talk the talk.
