Independent Living in South Carolina

Overview of Independent Living in South Carolina

With mild temperatures throughout the state and beaches along its Atlantic shoreline, South Carolina has much to offer as a retirement destination. The Greenville-Spartanburg area in the northwest corner of the state is an affordable, thriving metropolitan area for all ages. Along its Atlantic shorelines to the east, the Palmetto State earns its nickname with popular coastal cities like Myrtle Beach, Charleston, and Savannah. Senior living in South Carolina is filled with Southern hospitality and charm, which may explain why the state has a higher-than-average senior population.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 55 independent living communities, also simply called retirement communities, in South Carolina.

The median monthly cost of independent living in South Carolina is about $2,400.
