30 Reasons to Love Brandon Wilde

When Brandon Wilde was first envisioned by a small group from Augusta’s University Hospital in 1990, our mission was to serve seniors. As we approach the big three-oh, we realized that while a lot of things around our campus have changed, our goals remain the same. Today we provide a full continuum of care with a wellness philosophy focusing on the mental, physical and spiritual aspects of life to enhance the lives of residents.

As we plan for the future, we started reflecting on all the reasons residents choose our community. Soon, we had 30 reasons for each of our 30 Wilde years.

  1. Wilde characters: You won’t find a more friendly, diverse or well-traveled group of people who know the true value of a place to call home. In fact, since everyone has a friend at Brandon Wilde, you may know some of them already.
  2. Down-home hospitality: Everything we do is based on our 10 hospitality promises, which are designed to ensure we provide you and your family with superior service.
