We always knew Still Hopes Retirement Community in West Columbia, SC was a special place when it came to our focus on the seven dimensions of wellness, but now it has been recognized internationally! Still Hopes has received the ICAA NuStep Beacon Best in Wellness Award, which means we are recognized as one of the top 25 “Best In Wellness” senior living communities in west Columbia, SC and North America. The Award recognizes organizations who successfully foster an environment that is centered around wellness when it comes to the staff and residents. These communities who received the Award were considered to be the best and brightest, shining as a guiding light for all senior living communities.

A recent ICAA survey found that 59% of senior living communities plan to become “wellness centered” in services and staffing by 2023. However, Still Hopes adopted this wellness centered focus almost 20 years ago and we are so proud to be leading the way in this area. “Still Hopes is way ahead of the industry in promoting resident and staff centered wellness. We are now internationally recognized as one of the very best places to live and work – a place where we can all live our best lives!” says Denise Heimlich, Still Hopes’ Director of Wellness.
