ribbon cutting

Satilla Bluffs Senior Care Executive Director Danielle Harris snips the ribbon, surrounded by facility directors, Chamber board members and local officials who attended a ribbon cutting held at the new retirement and assisted living facility.

Pierce and Ware County Chambers of Commerce hosted a joint ribbon cutting at Satilla Bluffs Senior Care, a retirement and assisted living facility Thursday morning. The new facility overlooks the Satilla River at the county line.

Industrial development directors and government officials for both counties worked closely with Georgia Living Senior Care to make the new facility – bringing more than $6 million in capital investments and more than 50 jobs to the area – a reality.

Pierce County Industrial Development Director Matt Carter welcomed those in attendance at last week’s event and gave a summary of how the project came to fruition over five years of collaboration.

“Despite weather delays and a pandemic, the dream is now a reality,” Carter said.

Paige Taylor, membership manager with Waycross-Ware County Chamber of Commerce, also addressed the crowd briefly, and Danielle Harris, executive director at Satilla Bluffs, introduced the facility’s directors, and provided an overview of their services.

“This project has been a long time coming, but we are excited to serve Pierce, Ware and surrounding counties with our services,” Harris said.

Satilla Bluffs offers personal care services for seniors at various levels of independence and mobility and a secured memory care unit.
