Carolina Bay

Carolina Bay is Galloway Ridge’s Assisted Living neighborhood. Offering the perfect mix of community and privacy, every Carolina Bay apartment has a sitting room and kitchenette as well as a spacious bedroom and private bathroom. The apartments also have common areas with ample space for visiting, playing games, and other activities.

Just a few steps from their front door, residents can enjoy two beautiful outdoor living spaces, one of which has a putting green, as well as raised garden beds. There is also a gas grill used for cookouts and gatherings. Two private dining venues are available, but residents can also choose to eat at any of the dining areas throughout Galloway Ridge.

The health and wellness programs at Galloway Ridge are unique because they’re provided by both UNC Health and Duke Primary Care. Our residents enjoy the best in available wellness services and primary care. We provide our residents with access to both an on-site UNC Clinic within our building and a Duke Primary Care clinic in our Wellplex. In addition to Duke Primary Care, the Wellplex houses the Duke Center for Living and the Center for Physical Rehabilitation. In order to ensure that our residents enjoy a healthy lifestyle, we offer long-term assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care at The Arbor, which is under the direction of a board-certified gerontologist from the University of North Carolina.
