Community

Set in a park-like setting, Southminster encourages outdoor living with beautiful courtyards, private balconies and patios, and walk-able gardens. Enjoy the surrounding beauty of mature shade trees and a landscape bursting with the brilliant color of flowering azaleas, hydrangeas, and roses. Flowering crepe myrtle trees also make a spectacular canopy throughout our cottage neighborhoods.

In the spring and fall, our center courtyard comes alive with a pageantry of colors providing the perfect backdrop of musical performances and socializing with friends. And if gardening is your hobby, join our Executive Chef and culinary team in cultivating fresh vegetables and herbs from our heralded Chef’s Garden.
Whether living in a cottage, apartment or one of our new Terraces, everything is conveniently located. You’re just steps away from the community activity areas, dining, and Embrace Wellness. Regardless of the weather, it’s easy to attend many of our activities and events, take in a movie or join friends for dinner. And if living in one of our apartments, you’ll find everything under one roof.

It’s easy to see why our residents love the lifestyle here. Come discover for yourself the most accommodating, move extraordinary retirement community anywhere.
