“I have been trying to find the words to express just how grateful we are for the care that your entire staff provided for our mother, Virginia Caughman.  More than just meeting her needs, everyone engaged in her life and made her feel at home.  You freed us from the necessities of her care so that we could focus our affections on her. To the Memory Care Staff, admittedly, Mom could be a handful but your patience and good humor never failed.  It is a God-given gift to be able to extend, day in and day out, the level of care to those who are often unable to acknowledge it.  Our lives have been enriched by both the joy and sorrow of this experience.  Please know that all of you have a special place in our hearts.”

“On behalf of my brothers and myself I just want to reach out and thank you all for the care, love, and companionship you’ve given to my father the last three years. It was a great comfort to me and my family to know that my fathers every need was taken care of. My father was one of the first residents at Inlet Coastal when they opened up a little over three years ago.  He loved the facility and had no intention of leaving until God called him home. The culinary staff provided my father with delicious meals always going out of their way to please him if he had a special request. The weekly activities team provided companionship and stimulation, the care team and housekeeping attended to his every need. And, of course, the administrative team always kept an eye on things to make sure everything was running smoothly for our father. I cannot tell you what a comfort it was for us to know that my father was very safe and most importantly HAPPY these last couple of years. Thanks again for all you did for our dad.”

“I am so happy that my aunt is a resident at Inlet Coastal Resort.  The facility is lovely and feels more like a first-class hotel than an assisted living facility.  Because it is a small facility, there is more opportunity to know everyone there, residents and staff included.  The staff is very dedicated, pleasant and professional.  The employees seem to have a “heart” for their work.  As a family member, I am often greeted with hugs from some of the staff, almost as if I’m a member of their family.  I cannot speak highly enough for the attention and care provided.”

“My dad who had Alzheimer’s, moved to be closer to me so that I could help care for him. I searched all Assisted Living communities in the area and chose Inlet Coastal Resort because it felt like the best community for him. The employees loved and cared for him as if he was a family member. They were there for me emotionally and helped me go through this with my father. The employees at ICR care! I would definitely recommend ICR and would choose them if I needed them again. Inlet Coastal Resort, Thanks!”

“We moved my mother from a skilled care facility to Inlet Coastal Resort in March of 2016.  Prior to the move we met several times with the staff in order to prepare my mother for a life changing move.  The staff was well informed about my mother’s medical, physical and emotional needs, and warmly welcomed her upon her arrival.  For the first few days, every need was met from hanging shelves to painting, etc.  All requests were handled in a very timely fashion.  The staff even went shopping for special hooks for shelving. 

“My mother has now resided there for approximately 10 months and we honestly do not have any complaints or concerns.  The staff is lovely, lively, and very patient.

There seems to be an overall climate of compassionate care with dignity for all of the residents.  The communication skills are excellent and we never hesitate to call or ask for something.  The Resident Care Director  has gone out of her way numerous times to be extra helpful.

We would highly recommend this wonderful assisted living facility without reservation.  Kudos to the administration at Inlet Coastal Resort for their leadership and guidance in overseeing a well-run operation.”

“Probably one of the most difficult times for any family, certainly for ours, was the realization that our father was in need of some type of assisted living arrangement.  After several emergency trips to the hospital to deal with major health issues, it became clear that continuing to live in his home was no longer a responsible option.

We have all been very fortunate to have located, and gained accommodations at the Inlet Coastal Resort in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, where my father has now been a resident for the last few months.  Although the facility deserves high praise for the accommodations themselves – clean and comfortable rooms, great food, etc. – it is the administration and staff that make it truly the greatest location for my father’s long-term care.  They have all been warm and welcoming at all times, not only to my father, but to all of his visitors, friends and family.  They have always taken the time to answer our questions, consider special requests to make his stay more comfortable, or offer assistance to our entire family to make this transition easier for all of us.

I want to offer many thanks to all the folks at Inlet Coastal for making a very difficult time just a little easier.”
