South Carolina has a population of 5+ million, yet is still the little sibling compared to North Carolina which has twice the number of people, along with Georgia.

Why look for assisted living in South Carolina?

South Carolina has a population of 5+ million, yet is still the little sibling compared to North Carolina which has twice the number of people, along with Georgia. While many senior citizens will flood to Florida for their retirement years, one state that is seriously overlooked just to the north of it is South Carolina. The state has many of the same aspects as Florida, including beautiful weather and gorgeous beaches.

For older adults that appreciate history, the state is also very historical with lots of culture that made it kind of a hidden gem inside the rest of some of the other states of the southern U.S.

Taxes are also very favorable to seniors in South Carolina, comparable to Florida, yet still no one is talking about South Carolina as one of the best values in America for assisted living, especially since it ranks within the Top 10 for least expensive across the whole United States.

Types of Assisted Living Available in South Carolina

South Carolina has a really good selection of assisted living communities as the state becomes more well known to seniors that seek it as not only an alternative to Florida, but perhaps their number one retirement destination.

Various types of senior living found in South Carolina include traditional assisted living centers that can house 50 or more rooms, smaller units available in assisted living facilities as well as highly specialized care in residential care institutions.

Senior care can range from the highly sought-after adult foster care program to directed or personal care services. General supervisory services are available for seniors that are fairly independent as well as mobile on their own, yet prefer a more exclusive setting where meals are also served daily and laundry services are available.

Paying for Assisted Living in South Carolina

South Carolina recently expanded their Medicaid program to include coverage for assisted living financial assistance. It is now funded under the Community Choices Waiver.
