The Brightmore Lifestyle

At Brightmore Independent Living, one meal per day is included in every resident’s monthly fee with the option to add a second daily meal. The Carolina Cape Dining Room offers fabulous meals at lunch and dinner in an elegant setting with a uniquely casual atmosphere.  Each day, residents and their guests may enjoy their choice of entrees, fruits and vegetables, salads, soups, breads and desserts. The best part?  No cooking, no dishes, and an exceptional dining staff to serve you.  In addition to the main dining room, Brightmore Independent Living also provides coffees and hot teas 24 hours-a-day and a morning continental breakfast offering in The Parlor as well as entertaining options in The Coastline Dining Room, a handsome private dining space which residents may reserve to host family and friends in style. The Campus Director of Dining Services and Executive Chef will gladly assist in planning and preparing a very special menu for private parties of residents or they may select from the daily menu.

Trouble Sleeping? Try This!

Now being offered at Brightmore, is a monthly “Night Meditation and Stretch” class. Residents will be learning from different instructors, including Brightmore’s Wellness Director, Madeline Woodard, LRT/CTRS on different stretches to do before bed to ease and relax the wandering mind. This class is to promote a good night’s sleep. Residents also get an opportunity to explore their breathing, and how to relax their bodies and mind by simply take deep belly breaths, and remembering to breathe! Guided mediation allows them to close their eyes, and escape reality for just a little while. When residents leave the class, we provide a Sleepy Time herbal tea for them to take back to their apartments, and all of them have stated “how wonderful this makes them feel, and they really do get a better night’s sleep after this class.”
