Moving to a Independent Living Community should be about enjoying more freedom, not losing it. About exploring more opportunities, not limitations. About living as you plan, not as someone else has planned your day.

At The Dorchester, you’ll find all the amenities you will need, and choose to pay for only those you want –as you need them. Here you’ll live among interesting, like-minded friends on a lively campus and in a place you’ll be proud to call your own. …. SHOW MORE

At The Dorchester you’ll find light and airy floor plans, fabulous shared spaces, beautiful libraries, and an elegant Meeting Room with 14-foot ceilings.

“Our mission is for our residents to feel that moving to our community was not just a wise decision but an improvement to their lives.”

Sure, big companies can build apartments for seniors but in doing so, they begin to think of what matters instead of who matters. We pride ourselves on being a small company that does big things and we know who matters, our residents.

The Dorchester, located in the Village at Carolina Place, Charlotte’s largest retirement community, was built upon three pillars: health, happiness & economic well-being. Owned and operated by New Forum, The Dorchester has thrived upon these pillars since opening its doors in 2000.

At The Dorchester, we make a promise to all of our residents to provide a secure environment where the warmth of hospitality surrounds them. Our goal is to enrich lives every day by providing opportunities for residents to participate, to enjoy and to thrive within their community. But above all, we promise to respect our residents, their individuality and their independent lifestyle.

At The Dorchester, we don’t tell you about successful aging, we help you be successful at aging. The Dorchester is more than a place to live; it is a way of life.
