Meridian Senior Living

Meridian Senior Living is currently one of the top five (5) largest assisted living providers in the Nation, and one of the top three (3) in memory care. Meridian operates or has in development more than 100 communities serving more than 5,000 seniors. “We believe the availability of residential active living, an integrated health and wellness campus, and the premium medical services provided by Novant Health, provides a unique opportunity for synergy between Meridian’s continuum of care and the overall Pine Forest Plantation community.” said Andrew Carle, COO of Meridian Senior Living. The senior care provider plans to bring 160-180 living units to Oak Island, NC, including a mix of independent living, assisted living, and memory care services. Meridian’s mission is simple, straightforward, and guides the company’s efforts. It simply states, “We enrich the lives of our residents, families and employees through extraordinary experiences… because everyone deserves a great life!”

Tommy Sofield of Boone, NC owner of Pine Forest Plantation said, “With great pride, we publicly announce the community’s alliance with two of the nation’s top care providers, Novant Health’s primary care services, and now Meridian Senior Living’s premier senior care. It’s with great partners and premium care providers like these that Pine Forest Plantation will successfully serve the region’s growing needs.” Planning is already underway for the new facilities. With the growing need and Meridian’s commitment to the project, developers have expedited the construction planning to bring the new facilities to the community more quickly than originally planned.

Independent living and residential single family cottages, villas, townhome, and condo options will soon be made public with pre-sale and reservations soon to be available. Pine Forest Plantation located on HWY 211 near Midway Road has planned living for over 2,000 residential units over the life of the project and the newly announced mix of premier health and wellness providers are sure to become a highly sought after amenity, second to none in the area. The golf cart accessible community will only be made better with future on-site dining, shopping, and wellness development where our residents will not have to leave the campus.
