Life is a little sweeter at Willow Grove retirement community. Tucked in the North Carolina countryside, this Matthews senior living community is bright and cheery. Walk your dog along paved paths. Relax with neighbors in comfy patio furniture, admiring spectacular southern sunsets.

Willow Grove independent living community is near several health care providers, including Novant Health Matthews Medical Center. A short drive away, you'll find shopping and dining at Sycamore Commons. You’re central to several attractions in neighboring Charlotte. Explore exhibits at The Charlotte Museum of History. Visit marine life at the Sea Life Centre. Participate in cultural arts programming at Romare Beardon Park. Root on the racers at NASCAR Racing Experience. There's something for everyone here.

Keeping You Informed

Our commitment to helping older people live better means sharing important and timely information to help you make an informed decision to live in a Holiday community. Willow Grove operates with extensive protocols that mitigate the spreading of COVID-19.  If a resident tests positive for COVID-19, we notify residents and their designated contacts, our employees, and the local health department. In addition, the number of active cases is shared here. We are so proud of our team’s efforts and hard work to protect our community. See here for more information on our prevention and response measures.

Connection isn’t our goal. It’s our promise.

That’s why life at Holiday Retirement isn’t prescriptive, it’s personal. This is an era of opportunity to find passions that spark curiosity and people that inspire us to learn who one is. Life at Holiday Retirement isn’t about a building or amenities, it’s about the ways those simple pleasures and the people we share them with transform us every day. A meal becomes a memory. A trip to the store becomes an adventure. And a walk around the grounds becomes a tradition between friends. We are Holiday Retirement and we believe life is best lived among friends on your terms.

Lend a Helping Hand

Many residents find a sense of fulfillment in donating their time and skills to a cause close to their hearts. The community supports school supply drives and Toys for Tots. Several outside volunteer groups also come help out around Willow Grove.

We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
