What to do…
Life is meant to be lived, enjoyed to the fullest, and here at Clemson Downs we don’t hold back!
Clemson Downs employs five full-time activities directors, one for each of our levels of care, independent living, assisted living and two for our skilled nursing care. Each director tailors the activities for their specific area and also work well together on campus-wide events, ensuring all residents are involved. Clemson Downs also provides weekly bus routes to area grocery stores, Walmart, and the Central Clemson Recreational Center for warm water aerobics and other classes.
