Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Independent Living

If you or your loved one would like the convenience of having many of your frequent tasks taken care of while living life the way you desire, consider independent living. Basic needs such as meal preparation and housekeeping are handled by staff and a calendar of recreational and leisure activities is provided, allowing residents an opportunity to use their time as they wish, free from daily obligations. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to be among peers, in a community with others of similar ages and interests. Typically comprised of a private living space and a full kitchen, these communities offer residences with many of the amenities of apartment life but with none of the hassle. Guests can be invited over and entertained, and more time can be spent with them with the basic maintenance of daily chores out of the way. While policies differ between communities, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. If medical or nursing assistance is desired, residents may always enlist the services of private health care professionals. There are a variety of benefits and expenditures to consider when deciding on an independent living community. It is important to learn if these services are included in your care plan: transportation, wellness program, parking, meals, field trips, internet access, cable TV, and utilities. The amenities that pertain to independent living include fitness center & swimming pool, restaurant-style dining hall, healthcare center, security guards, game/TV room, beauty salon & barber shop, laundry service, and community activities.

Cost of Living

The overall cost of living is a big influence in deciding what facility is the best fit for your loved one. The rent burden for Myrtle Beach is around 18.7% of the average monthly income. The median monthly price for rent in Myrtle Beach is about $866 and the median value for a home for Myrtle Beach is around $183,738. The sales tax in Myrtle Beach is 6.00%.

Regional Climate and Weather Information

The humidity, air temperature, and air quality of a destination can have a large influence on the well-being of senior citizens.
