Masterpiece Living: A New Way to Age Successfully


The word “masterpiece” generally provokes thoughts of priceless works of art and pieces of music that have been played for centuries. But at Somerby of Mount Pleasant, the mission is to ensure that residents think of their own lives as masterpieces. “A true masterpiece is something that never leaves one with the feeling that anything is missing,” said Lisa Kinsella, executive director of Somerby. “That level of complete fulfillment is exactly the lifestyle we offer our residents.”

Somerby of Mount Pleasant is a rental retirement community in Park West that offers independent living, assisted living, memory care and respite accommodations along with resort-style amenities including restaurant-style dining, an indoor heated pool and fitness center, on-site movie theater, a creative arts studio and full activities calendar. “We boast a beautiful property, spacious living areas and more fun-filled events than you could count,” Kinsella said. “But what sets us apart is not the four walls of our buildings or the beauty of the landscape; it’s all about the lifestyle.” Life at Somerby is focused on enhancing your retirement. “It’s a lifestyle that makes you more energetic and passionate about each day,” she said. “It’s the ‘Masterpiece Living’ our residents truly enjoy.”

Masterpiece Living, offered in the greater Charleston area exclusively at Somerby of Mount Pleasant, is a research-based initiative focused on continued growth of physical, intellectual, social and spiritual self-enrichment. In addition to plenty of physical activities, the community offers a place of meditation and worship and hosts games, clubs, arts and crafts, presentations, special events and scheduled trips in order to keep residents engaged socially. “Staying engaged with other people is very important to overall wellness, and Somerby makes it easy,” Kinsella said.

Somerby, which celebrated its sixth year in July, also specializes in other five-star services residents may enjoy, including weekly housekeeping, linen service, scheduled transportation and an on-site wellness clinic. Of course, all residents have access to days full of activities, fine dining and fun. “You will make new friends here at Somerby,” Kinsella said. “Our residents really look forward to spending time together and meeting new people. There’s so much to do and something for everyone.”
