Bloom Into Your Best Self

Welcome to Bloom at Belfair in Bluffton, South Carolina

Bloom at Belfair is a family-owned and operated independent living, independent living plus and memory care establishment. Since 1965, our goal has been simple yet aspirational: to help our residents flourish. Entering a Bloom community does not mean checking your lifestyle or personality at the door. Residents continue to live life to its fullest potential, enjoying their favorite activities while discovering new ones, and blooming into their best selves through growth and discovery.

Bloom’s memory care is uniquely designed and features interactive neighborhoods situated around Town Square with working “Life Skills Stores” (i.e general store, old-fashioned ice cream parlor, book nook, art center, hobby shop, post office, barber shop, news stand, toy store, candy shop and vintage sporting goods store). Open to residents 24 hours a day, Town Square represents Main Street America reminiscent of the early 1940’s developed to bring back long-term memories and ensure residents relate to familiar settings from their yesteryear. Main Street opens into outdoor courtyards complete with putting greens, dog parks and shuffleboard courts.

Bloom’s personalized service and superior care enable residents to enjoy the privacy of home, combined with the security and convenience of assistance and a maintenance-free environment. This is provided in a vibrant and intimate setting, located on a private, 6-acre plot in the heart of Bluffton, South Carolina.

Family Member

“This is the best retirement community in the area. It has such a warm, homey feel. Residents can be independent and still have access to help 24-hours a day when needed. The staff is kind and caring and I’m thrilled mother is surrounded by wonderful people. The services are excellent. The most important benefit is the peace of mind knowing that mother is safe. Our entire family and I are very happy. It has been such a blessing.”


“I decided upon this community because of the people. The staff is very caring. The Activity Director keeps us busy. The services are good – think, no more dishes to wash. I feel safe and secure.”
