INDIAN LAND, S.C. — Watercrest Senior Living Group has appointed Joy Patterson as executive director of Watercrest Fort Mill Assisted Living and Memory Care in Indian Land, just across the state border from Charlotte.

Watercrest Fort Mill is a 107-unit resort-style senior living community currently under construction by Shiel Sexton and scheduled to welcome residents this spring.

Patterson joined Watercrest Senior Living Group in early 2019, leading the pre-operational management of Watercrest Columbia Assisted Living and Memory Care, before transitioning to her new position.

Patterson’s healthcare career began as a senior living marketing director. After achieving her nursing home administrators license and residential care facility license, she found a regional role providing leadership and implementing strategic growth for multiple senior living communities.
