“We’re one big family here at Brandon Wilde.”
– Greg Byrge, Executive Director

Started by a small group at Augusta’s University Hospital, the Augusta Resource Center on Aging, Inc. (dba Brandon Wilde) opened in October 1990. The name Brandon Wilde was chosen to honor the first lasting pioneer settlement in Columbia County, known as Brandon, and Augusta poet and statesman Richard Henry Wilde.

The original project included 155 apartments, 18 cottages for independent living, as well as personal care apartments and skilled nursing suites. Expansions over the years have included The Village (Club House and 46 cottages), The Preserve (10 cottages), Windsor House (memory care) and a 20,000-square-foot Wellness Center.
