It’s Always Helpful to Try Before You Buy
You try on clothes and always test drive a car before you buy. So why, up until now, have seniors had to take a leap of faith when it comes to senior living? Inspired by this real need, our Be Our Guest program is an amazing, new way to experience life in our senior living community.
Experience Our Carefree Resort Lifestyle
We welcome you to explore two fun-filled days at Discovery Village At Sandhill! Feel what it’s like to awaken each day with multiple opportunities for enjoyment, excitement, and relaxation in front of you. Sample chef-prepared cuisine at each meal, enjoy your favorite social and recreational activities (or try new ones), and with cooking, housekeeping, and maintenance all covered for you, make the most of your now-abundant leisure time. We know after your visit; we are confident you will be leaving saying “Why haven’t I moved here sooner!”
Explore, Socialize, & Enjoy the VIP Treatment
Upon arrival, you will be treated like a VIP with a customized plan that matches your likes and lifestyle. If you’re the creative type and interested in an art class, then join us in our art studio. Maybe you just want to relax, and movies are your passion; well we have that for you too. No matter what you like to do, we will customize your activities so you can explore everything our Celebrations Activities and Events program has to offer.
Your Luxury Apartment Home Awaits!
Come and get comfortable and settle into your fully furnished apartment home. You’ll have ample time to check out the floorplan, modern conveniences, and high-end finishes. Sit back, relax, and imagine yourself living there, but don’t get too comfortable because the team will be preparing a special welcome Reception in your honor your first evening!
Savor Sensations Dining at Every Meal
Here’s where your palate will thank you! Delight in our fresh, executive chef-prepared cuisine, and count on attentive, tableside service from our warm, welcoming team members who cater to your every need. You will also enjoy different venue options serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and anytime “grab and go” snacks.
You Are Never Alone
Nobody knows more about life in our community than those who already call us home. That’s why we will make sure you have your very own Resident Ambassador to help guide you through your time with us. Knowing your interests and likes, we will pair you with a Resident Ambassador that shares your same interests. So, as you walk, dine, or enjoy cocktails with your Resident Ambassador, it’s the perfect time to glean insights and advice from like-minded peers who will tell it like it is!
Experience Resort-Style Amenities & Activities
From leisurely activities to fun, new adventures, our Grande Clubhouse is the social epicenter of our community. Try out an exercise class or visit our FitCamp® Center, attend a lecture or musical performance, play cards with our different card clubs or shoot some pool, take a dip in our resort-style heated pools, or just get pampered in our salon and spa. We have something for everyone!

100% Satisfaction Guarantee
We know you’ll be happy here, but we don’t blame you for being skeptical. Since you can’t really know a place until you’ve lived there, we give residents the opportunity to test the waters before choosing whether they’ll stay. If for any reason you are not satisfied, just let us know within the first 90 days. We will release you from your lease with no penalties. We’ll also refund your community fee.

Rent protection makes it easier than ever to make the choice to raise your standards of senior living at Discovery Village At Sandhill.
Rent lock Details:
- No increases for 36 months
- Comfort and convenience of an annual lease
- No buy-ins or long-term commitments
Sensations Restaurant Dining
The cuisine at Discovery Village At Sandhill is the best in South Carolina. Some would argue that the quality of our catered dining outshines everything else. We decided to convert to restaurant dining a few years ago because we love going out to eat (and couldn’t imagine life without it). We love good service and varied menu options. Using the freshest locally-sourced ingredients available, Sensations chefs create mouthwatering dishes you’ll be excited to try. Our friendly, knowledgeable servers provide a highbrow dining experience that other Columbia senior living homes are missing. Tableside service complete with tasteful lighting, linen tablecloths and napkins, and the finest tableware complete your dining experience. Although some residents in our senior independent living homes prefer to cook at home in their own kitchens, the convenience, welcoming atmosphere, and chef-prepared cuisine offer a tempting alternative that most residents take advantage of.
Stay active and continue to enrich your life with Discovery Village’s Celebrations program. Our full-time activities director ensures there’s always a variety of activities and events going on. From exercise to parties, seminars to games, you’ll always find something to enjoy with friends and neighbors each day. Whether in the community or on-the-town, you’ll find it difficult to decide what to do next!
Our activities calendar helps keep seniors active and engaged. We have plenty of fun and thought-provoking activities and day trips to help you meet new people and connect with friends. You’ll find something fun to enjoy alongside your friends and neighbors every day of the week.
Dimensions Health And Fitness
Goal-setting is an important part of maintaining an active lifestyle, and we can help you set them. The senior living health programs at Discovery Village At Sandhill make it easy to stay active. Our senior-equipped gym, water aerobics, and FitCamp®, our exclusive senior fitness classes, are health-club quality. Staying healthy means staying active in the safest possible environment. Residents are encouraged to participate in our comprehensive wellness programs right away. Our friendly, professional team members are always nearby to help you enjoy the most appropriate workouts and physical therapy activities. Our health and wellness amenities make it easy to incorporate physical activity into your daily routine, including meditation and yoga classes to help calm the soul. We also offer an on-site spa, salon, and barbershop so you can look your best.
The concierge services at Sandhill are designed to reduce our residents’ stress and anxiety. The city’s sprawling, suburban layout vexes many seniors. At Discovery Village At Sandhill, our friendly concierge will happily reserve you a table at a local restaurant or check movie times at the local theater. Want to cheer up a friend or family member with a unique flower arrangement? We’ll have them delivered. We make it easier to help people stay in touch with family and friends.
Our housekeeping and maintenance teams take cleanliness to a new level. Discovery Village At Sandhill shares your high standards for cleanliness. Discovery Village At Sandhill takes the burden of housekeeping off our residents’ shoulders so they can focus on whatever makes them the happiest. Impressions Housekeeping is a service you’ll love.
When you want to get out and about, our professional drivers will provide transportation without the hassle. Other Columbia assisted living homes only offer on-campus trips, but we understand the importance of travel. Check the schedule for regular trips to nearby locations for dining, shopping, religious services, movies, and other creative outings. Arriving on time for a doctor’s appointment has never been easier. Just make a request at the Concierge Services Desk a few days in advance and we will have a driver waiting. No parking, no rushing, no worries.
