The Magnolias of Summerville Experience

As a Schonberg and Associates Assisted Living Community, our number one priority is always the safety and well-being of each resident. If you talk to one of our residents or families, they'll tell you that our emphasis on individualized quality of care is what matters most to them, and what we offer day after day.

We believe in the simple and familiar living concept. Some residents who only require minimal assistance with day-to-day life enjoy a fulfilling sense of independence and support, living comfortably in a home-like environment. Other residents requiring the specialized care of degenerative memory impairment are provided higher levels of care and security. Families enjoy peace of mind in knowing their loved ones are receiving the appropriate level of care they need.

At Magnolias of Summerville, as with every Schonberg community throughout the South, residents can age 'with grace and in place' in a loving environment that accommodates their needs at every level.

Our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of each one of our Magnolias of Summerville residents.

The Schonberg Philosophy

"Several times each day, we answer the question, 'Is this in the best interest of each of our residents?' If the answer is yes, then we can't go wrong. This simple operating philosophy is the secret to our continued success." —David Schonberg

David C. Schonberg, Schonberg and Associates.  Owner and Managing Member

Starting his career in the senior retirement industry shortly after receiving his MBA and MHA from Tulane University, South Louisiana native David Schonberg broke ground on The Suites at Sugar Mill Point in Houma, Louisiana in January 2001. From that beginning, David’s calling in the Healthcare and Assisted Living fields has evolved with years of research, planning and development of some of the finest Assisted Living Communities in the South. His trademark “neighborhood” living concept, offering incremental levels of care depending upon individual resident needs, represents the highest standards of care in the industry. David developed a second property—Alden Pointe Assisted Living and Memory Care in Hattiesburg, Mississippi—and recently acquired ownership of three South Carolina Assisted Living and Elder Care communities, which now proudly bear the Schonberg name and distinction.

“The way I judge the success of each one of our communities like Magnolias of Summerville is by asking myself this simple question: if that resident were my mother or father, would I feel that their every need and happiness were being met everyday?”
