Dayspring Assisted Living in Hollywood, SC
4.4

The caregivers at Dayspring were one of the reasons we chose this community. They are wonderful and very good with the residents. This is a smaller community so the ratio of caregivers to residents is higher. They could use a few more activities. The food is good and they keep the community very clean. This community gets my recommendation.

Somerby of Mount Pleasant
4.8

My mother in law had recently left her home town of Denver for her newest adventure in South Carolina. Being over 90 has it’s challenges but the staff at Somerby has dealt with it all and they have been so wonderful in helping her transition to her new surroundings. She loves her apartment, never misses a meal ( especially dessert), has fantastic caregivers and plenty of activities to keep her busy. Our family is very thankful for everyone at Somerby and we highly recommend this community.
