A Fulfilling LifestyleAt Our Senior Living Community in Charlotte

Whole-Person Wellness

At The Barclay, we emphasize whole-person wellness. That means we partner with you to help you reach and maintain your highest fitness level, create meaningful social connections, and keep your mind stimulated.

Our wellness facility is state-of-the-art and our exceptional staff includes certified fitness instructors who tailor your fitness and wellness program to your personal preferences and goals. Every day, you can choose from a variety of land and water exercise classes, including yoga, tai chi, water aerobics and line dancing. In addition to leading group programming, our wellness instructors are available for coaching and personal training upon request.

At our senior living community in Charlotte, NC, we place a premium on helping you achieve your optimal health and wellness throughout your retirement years.

NASM Performance Partner AFAA Group Fitness

The partnership between Liberty Senior Living and the NASM/AFAA organization is an indicator of Liberty being viewed as a leader in the senior fitness industry. This partnership provides more opportunities for current staff to obtain higher quality training as well as retention in employees through continuing education opportunities including conferences. In turn, this provides our communities’ residents with more extensive programming possibilities. The NASM Senior Fitness Specialization is provided to all INSPIRE interns at our various communities to establish continuity and a basic understanding of working with the older adult population within the fitness realm. This partnership will draw more determined interns with the intent on carrying out a career in the fitness world.


Distinctive Dining

A Delectable Range of Menus and Venues

For most of us, dining goes beyond mere sustenance. It is one of life’s greatest pleasures; an experience meant to be savored and shared.

At The Barclay at SouthPark, we offer distinctive dining options and a remarkable range of culinary choices for our residents and guests. If you’re in the mood for something quick or light, you might opt for our casual dining area. Or you may begin your evening at the pub, where you could make a meal out of drinks and small plates, or have cocktails and appetizers as your first course before moving on to enjoy a fine dining experience in the grill.

Flexibility is another essential at The Barclay. As part of — not in addition to — the monthly rent, you’ll receive dining dollars with a declining monthly balance to be used at your discretion. This policy allows you the flexibility to dine out with friends and family without paying for meals you are not eating at the community.

Of course, we also hope you will invite friends and family to join you for many delicious chef-prepared meals in your new community. After all, with all the planning, prepping, cooking and cleaning handled for you, entertaining has never been easier.


Life Enrichment

Where Do You Want To Thrive In Retirement?

At The Barclay at SouthPark, our life enrichment opportunities are designed to complement our physical fitness programs and address all areas of wellness: physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, occupational/sense of purpose and environmental.

Whatever your passions and interests, we encourage you to indulge the current ones, and discover new ones, as you and your neighbors embrace all life has to offer at The Barclay.

Barclay & Fairmeadows Swim & Racquet Club

A Special Partnership

The Barclay at SouthPark amenity spaces extend beyond its four walls. Thanks to a special partnership between Fairmeadows Swim & Racquet Club and Liberty Senior Living, Barclay residents are invited to enjoy all the club’s offerings – and they are plentiful – at no cost.

Liberty Senior Living, The Barclay’s parent company, has invested more than $1 million to refurbish the club, thereby allowing Barclay residents and their guests complimentary access to all its amenity spaces. Residents may choose to enjoy swimming laps or taking a deep-water aerobics class in the spring and summer; playing tennis, pickleball and lawn games any time of the year; or simply an evening by the firepit or picnic under the gazebo. Whatever your preference, Fairmeadows is a short drive or quick walk across the pedestrian bridge at the back of The Barclay’s property, so making use of all the club’s offerings is easy to do.
