Columbia's Preferred Retirement Community

The Terrace isn’t like any other senior retirement community. We believe in helping people aged 62 and older have an independent living lifestyle that they truly love. Our caring and compassionate staff have ensured that each resident has the retirement community experience they deserve.

At the Terrace, Enjoying Life is What It’s All About.

Whether your perfect day involves exercising in the gym, curling up by the fire with a good book, playing bridge with friends, or heading to the mall, your retirement community should give you the freedom to do just that. At the Terrace, you can be sure that you’ll spend your time how you want to spend it. We give our residents the opportunity to fill their days with what they enjoy.
