One of the region’s oldest wellness-based Retirement Communities. (Retirement and Assisted Living in Charleston, SC)

Founded in 1892…

…as a ministry of the Lutheran Church, Franke at Seaside is one of the region’s oldest wellness-based non-profit Continuing Care Retirement Communities.

Located minutes away from beautiful beaches and the historic city of Charleston, our campus is nestled among the planned residential and retail development of Seaside Farms in Mount Pleasant, SC.

The definition of “Retirement” has changed in the last decade. Increasingly, and at younger ages, active adults are choosing to spend their retirement years living in a place like Franke at Seaside’s Active Lifestyle Community, where residents enjoy a destination resort lifestyle without the burdens of home ownership.

While still in the context of a continuing care environment, the Active Lifestyle Community is a unique long-term independent living solution for active adults. Our campus reflects the gracious style of easy Lowcountry living.

The active lifestyle campus offers seventy-one apartments from 888 to 1,328 sq. ft. featuring 9-foot ceilings, full kitchens and laundry, wall-to-wall carpeting and screen porches or sunrooms.
