South Carolina Assisted Living Communities
WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

South Carolina is known for its wide range of scenic attractions, depth of history, and its traditional Southern charm. It is a small state, ranking only 40th in size; yet it packs a lot within its 30,000 square miles, and offers a lot for retirees as well.
The seacoast is renowned and popular, stretching from charming Beaufort at one corner of the state to vibrant Myrtle Beach at the other. From the coast, the land rises slowly through a region of moss-covered oaks and small towns, to the higher piedmont and the capital of Columbia. The hilly Upstate region and the bustling cities of Greenville and Spartanburg continue on to the Blue Ridge Mountains along the border with neighboring North Carolina. Hilton Head Island has become a famous resort town, receiving attention for frequent visits from former President Bill Clinton and family.
Spend a day or two in South Carolina, and you may quickly understand the state slogan "smiling faces and beautiful places." There are more reasons to retire in South Carolina than just the beautiful scenery and friendly residents. The state also boasts low property taxes and zero state estate tax. An increasing number of retirees have also been moving to the state for its warm summers, mild winters, and slower pace of life.
