The Terrace, Where People Love to Live

Enjoying life is what it’s all about.

Curl up by the fire with a good book, play bridge with friends or head out to the mall. Be as active or relaxed as you like, because it’s all about you and your preferences, at the Terrace Retirement Community.

This isn’t just any senior living community. We believe in keeping independent seniors 62 and over as active as they want. There’s always something happening from live entertainment and card tournaments, to exercise classes and trips to area performances.

Plus…the food is amazing! You can feast on anything from salads and sandwiches to steaks and seafood. We also offer daily features and a seemingly endless list of breakfast options. You never have to cook again, unless you want to; and no more mowing the lawn or shoveling snow.

We offer seniors respect, friendship and the freedom to make their own decisions.

Our beautiful private apartments in Columbia, MO are available with no buy-in investment or nonrefundable community fee. You may choose from an intimate studio, a roomy one bedroom or a spacious two bedroom/one bathroom or two bedroom/two bathroom apartment. Each features a well designed kitchen, individual temperature control, carpeting and a bay window.

You can request materials via email, telephone or come by to see for yourself the lifestyle our residents enjoy every day.

Call Us Today: (573) 875-2538.

We look forward to meeting you!
