Vibrant Lifestyles. Exceptional Care. When helping her mother select a community where she could be connected, make new friends and receive the medical and personal assistance she needed, Gloria Buffington did her research and explored many options. “As an only child, I am solely responsible for my mother’s care. The decision-making process related to moving my mother from her home was agonizing for me – that is, until I met all of the good folks at The Palmettos Mauldin. From the very first day, I have had not one moment of worry about her care.” “With my background in the medical profession, I feel I am in a unique position to observe and evaluate care and I can honestly say the care my mother has received at The Palmettos Mauldin has been exceptional,” shared Buffington. “The staff is attentive and caring, intuitive and accountable. They are also fun-loving and work hard to make our days enjoyable and fi lled with appropriate activities.”
Celebrating 10 Years of Service in the Greenville Area The community is experiencing great joy during 2020 as The Palmettos Mauldin celebrates a decade of serving seniors and their families. Over the last 10 years the retirement community, which offers both assisted living and memory care, has provided exceptional care and touched the lives of hundreds of residents and their (continued on next page) family members.
The Palmettos, which is the only Greenville area assisted living facility owned and operated by National HealthCare Corporation (NHC), attributes its success to its experienced and committed staff, high standard for customer service and the warm, family-like atmosphere it offers. NHC is proud to have been named one of America’s Most Trustworthy Companies by Forbes magazine. Founded by a physician, NHC provides The Palmettos and its residents access to invaluable national expertise and resources. “Our 10th Anniversary is a milestone for our community,” said Kathryn Davis, Executive Director of The Palmettos Mauldin. “As we reflect on the last 10 years it is amazing to think of how we have grown and the important role we have played in the lives of so many Greenville area families. I am proud of the vibrant lifestyle we have created that enables our residents to enjoy new experiences and build meaningful relationships.” Davis says she is also amazed at how the community is still as lovely and inviting as it was on the day it opened, a sentiment shared by Buffington. “The facility is beautiful and great effort is given to maintain the building and provide excellent cleaning and laundry services,” shared Buffington. “The green spaces outside are well maintained and provide space for residents and families to gather and enjoy being outdoors.”
An Intimate Community with Exceptional Care With only 45 apartments, The Palmettos Mauldin offers a smaller, home-like environment that is warm and inviting for the close-knit group of residents who call it home. With an RN or LPN on duty around the clock and attentive caregivers always within reach, residents and their families can rest easy knowing that the quality care they or their loved one needs is always available.

Scheduled transportation is available in our community bus to doctor appointments, events outside the community and shopping.
Family member Gail Jacobo, daughter of long-time resident Doris McKinney, agrees that residents and families can confidently put their trust in the Palmettos’ experienced and professional staff. “My mother has been at the Palmettos for almost nine years so I can attest to the quality care,” explained Jacobo, “It’s a relief to know that I can count on it day in and day out over the years. Equally important is that care at the Palmettos is administered with love and laughter.” “The Palmettos is special in many ways, but a critical issue is the amount of medical personnel and support that is on site 24/7,” shared Jacobo. “Th is is simply superior. The staff is responsive and from the CNAs to nurses, to the support team and the directors, all are a pleasure to be around.” “At The Palmettos Mauldin you will find a welcoming community that offers a wide array of engaging activities in a safe, supportive and compassionate environment,” said Davis. “The Palmettos demonstrates NHC’s commitment to excellence by providing quality care that exceeds the standards of other assisted living and memory care communities.”
Premier Community Gives Back in Celebration of its 10 th Anniversary
Offering a Unique Kind of Care to Seniors and their Families
In commemoration of its 10th anniversary, The Palmettos will celebrate throughout 2020 with special events and activities. In a somewhat untraditional approach, The Palmettos will also launch a community-focused anniversary initiative. “Our residents are still living life to the fullest and contributing significantly to the Greenville area,” explained Davis. “Recognizing that and our special anniversary year, we are initiating a ‘10/10 in 2020’ program through which our Palmettos family will complete 10 service projects in honor of our 10 years of service to the community during 2020.”
Over the past decade this unwavering focus on its residents is what differentiates The Palmettos from other providers. Buffington wholeheartedly concurs, saying, “What makes The Palmettos so special is the commitment of the entire staff to the care of the residents and their families.”
Ten local nonprofits have been selected as beneficiaries of the anniversary initiative. The Palmettos residents and staff will carry out a service project for one community partner each month beginning in March, the actual month the facility opened, and culminating at the end of 2020. “As we celebrate a decade of service it only seemed fitting to honor this important highpoint in our history by giving back to the community and doing so in a manner that brings joy to our residents,” said Davis.
“Every member of the staff has gone above and beyond to make our transition and adjustment to our new ‘home away from home’ a smooth one and I truly feel this is what sets the Palmettos apart,” shared an emphatic Buffington. “I am in and out of the Palmettos often because I love to go there and watch how they care for all residents. I love to be a part of the family that is ‘The Palmettos.’ I love how they care for my mother and (continued on next page) also how they care for me!”
