Rice Estate: A Place to Call Home

For more than a century, Lutheran Homes of South Carolina has stood as a beacon of care, embodying values that honor the presence of God, the sanctity of human life, and the dignity of every individual. As South Carolina’s largest nonprofit provider dedicated to senior care, our mission is resolute: to promote the well-being of older adults through a diverse range of services, including residential, health care, and hospice. This commitment extends across faiths, reflecting our belief that everyone deserves a fulfilling and vibrant life.

In northeast Columbia, Rice’s mission comes to life offering a spectrum of accommodations catering to individual needs, including independent apartments, assisted living, long-term care, and short-term rehabilitation. Whether it’s a cozy one-room suite or a spacious two-bedroom abode, the surroundings are bright and inviting, set amidst lush green spaces that provide tranquility and serenity. Look for newly renovated Evergreen Assisted Living apartments to open in 2024.

Within the nurturing embrace of Rice Estate, residents find not only comfortable living but also the ever-present warmth of Christian care with a touch of Southern hospitality. Compassionate caregivers are available 24 hours a day to provide support when more help is needed. Calendars are brimming with life enriching activities that touch upon every aspect of well-being: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, and occupational. Residents have the opportunity to nourish their bodies, renew their spirits, make new friends, and partake in social and cultural activities — all while enjoying chore-free living with tasty chef prepared meals, housekeeping, and transportation services.

Rice Estate is more than a residence; it’s a family — where residents truly feel at home, supported by a community that values their unique contributions.

Make Rice Estate your home and become a valued member of the Lutheran Homes family. You’ll find an engaged community with cherished residents enjoying a flourishing lifestyle.
