It depends on what they are looking for an assistant living place they are wonderful but if their parents are needy and does it want to be rushed then probably not. Like in most facilities you have some helpers that need to find another kind of job.

How people pay for senior apartments in Greenville

Because senior apartment communities aren’t covered by programs like Medicare, Medicaid, or long-term care insurance, most seniors use their private resources to pay for rent at senior apartments in Greenville. However, Medicaid, Medicare, or long-term care insurance may help seniors pay for medically necessary in-home care services.

In this section, we’ve gathered information on private pay options, housing assistance, VA benefits, Medicare, and Medicaid resources.

Private pay methods in Greenville

Like any other apartment rent, most seniors pay out of their own pockets to live in senior apartments. Sources of income are varied, including Social Security benefits, pensions, savings accounts, investment returns, and the following:

VA benefits in Greenville

While veterans don’t get specific compensation for senior apartments, Veterans’ Pensions can certainly be used to help pay for rent at a senior apartment. The VA has additional benefits that can help alleviate financial hardship for people who need in-home care. The most generous is the Aid and Attendance benefit, which is paid in addition to the Veteran’s Pension and can be used to help eligible senior veterans or their surviving spouses cover the costs of anything that improves their life, including a senior apartment.[03]

If senior veterans in Greenville need help applying for VA benefits, the local Greenville County Office of Veterans Affairs is the first place to go. Walk-ins are only allowed on certain days, so an appointment is recommended. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has a regional benefit office in nearby Columbia that offers claims assistance as well.

The Greenville Housing Authority administers a Veterans Affairs supportive housing program. Known as HUD-VASH, this voucher program is aimed specifically at homeless vets. But, if a senior meets the eligibility requirements, the assistance can be used for rent.

Non-profit organizations can help veterans navigate the complex world of veterans’ benefits. We recommend working with Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) since these organizations have been vetted and approved by the VA.

In Greenville, Upstate Warrior Solution provides advocates to help with benefits coordination. They’re connected to the Upstate Veterans Alliance Network (UVAN), a collaboration of more than 200 community resources and organizations across several counties, including Greenville County. The Greenville American Legion is another valuable resource, with VSO representatives who can provide free assistance with VA benefits claims.

Greenville Medicaid coverage for senior care services

South Carolina’s Medicaid program for seniors, called Healthy Connections, does not pay for senior apartments. However, if a senior needs care while living in the apartment, various needs are covered for qualified seniors through home and community based services (HCBS) waivers. The Community Choices waiver, for those qualifying as frail elderly, can be used for the following kinds of assistance and products:[04]

  • Household chores
  • Personal care assistance
  • Respite care
  • Minor environmental adjustments
  • Pest control
  • Meal delivery
  • Personal emergency response system
  • Limited incontinence products

Before seniors can apply for the Community Choices waiver, they’ll first need to apply for Medicaid. They can apply online for Healthy Connections (Medicaid) or in person at the local Medicaid eligibility office in Greenville.

Some organizations help seniors navigate the application process and find services, such as SC Thrive and the Appalachian Council of Governments, which acts as the Greenville Area Agency on Aging. The Medicaid handbook is also a helpful reference.

South Carolina is one of 15 states to offer coordinated care for seniors who are eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare. This dual program for people 65 and older is called Healthy Connections Prime. The ombudsman can help seniors who are enrolled in Healthy Connections Prime navigate the dual program.

Medicare coverage for senior care in Greenville

Medicare, which is the 65+ federal health insurance program, doesn’t cover rent for a senior apartment. However, it does help with in-home care a senior might need while living in a senior apartment.[05]

For help navigating Medicare, South Carolina State Health Insurance Program (SHIP) counselors can lend a hand. This free service operated by the Appalachian Area Agency on Aging can help seniors and their families or loved ones understand Medicare plans. They can explain additional coverage options and even help seniors enroll in low-income assistance programs if they meet the requirements. The South Carolina Department on Aging operates GetCareSC to help residents connect with local resources. Seniors can sign up for Medicare through the Social Security Administration.

South Carolina offers an AIDS Drug Assistance Program through Medicare for seniors living with AIDS or who are HIV positive to help them get necessary medications. However, the program is limited to select pharmacies.

South Carolina is one of just a few states to offer coordinated care for seniors who are eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare. This dual program for people 65 and older is called Healthy Connections Prime. The ombudsman can help seniors who are enrolled in Healthy Connections Prime navigate the dual program.

Public assistance for seniors in Greenville

For seniors who meet certain income requirements, public assistance is an option to help pay for senior apartment expenses. The Greenville Housing Authority can help seniors through the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. Low-income seniors who qualify for this federal program can use this subsidy to pay for rent at their senior apartment, provided the landlord is willing to accept the vouchers. This rental assistance program is popular and often requires being on a waitlist.

Seniors can contact the South Carolina field office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with questions about HUD rental programs, including the HCV program.

Social Security benefits are another way seniors can pay for senior apartment rent. There are several types of Social Security benefits. Which one you might be entitled to depends on your current situation and work history. Here’s a breakdown of each Social Security benefit:

  • Social Security Retirement benefit (SSR): This is a monthly payment for retired seniors of at least 62 years of age. The amount paid is based on work history.
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI): A person of any age with a qualifying disability and a work history may be able to get monthly benefits through this program. Family members can sometimes qualify, too.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI): This benefit is for low-income seniors who are 65 or older with qualifying disabilities. This payment doesn’t rely on work history and can be received in addition to SSI and SSDI.
  • Social Security Survivors Benefits: This benefit is paid out to the widows, widowers, or dependents of people who paid Social Security taxes and were eligible for Social Security.

The Social Security Administration has a Greenville office near the intersection of Pelham and Haywood. For help from senior or disability advocacy organizations, Greenville seniors can call the Disability Rights South Carolina state helpline or reach out to the Appalachian Council of Governments.

Understand South Carolina laws and regulations for senior apartments communities

Senior apartments typically rent units to adults who are 55 and older, and they may offer services such as housekeeping, transportation, and social activities. These communities don’t provide any medical or nursing care to residents. They also don’t have the same regulatory requirements as assisted living facilities or nursing homes.

Key regulations

The laws and regulations for senior apartments in Greenville are generally the same as those for rentals throughout the state. Some of the key regulations that apply to senior apartments in Greenville include the following:

  • The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or ability. This law applies to all housing providers, including senior apartment communities.
  • The South Carolina Residential Landlord and Tenant Act establishes the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants in rental agreements. This law covers issues such as rent, security deposits, repairs and maintenance, and eviction procedures. It also says landlords are required to keep rental properties in safe and habitable conditions. Tenants must notify landlords of any repairs that are needed, and landlords are required to make repairs within a reasonable time frame.
  • Adult Protection laws are in place to protect vulnerable adults, including seniors, from abuse, neglect, and exploitation. These laws require certain professionals, such as health care providers and law enforcement officers, to report suspected abuse or neglect to the appropriate authorities.

Inspections

Rental properties in Greenville are subject to inspections by the city or county. Inspections may be conducted by various agencies, including the following:

  • The City of Greenville’s Code Enforcement Division
  • The Greenville County Building Codes Enforcement Division
  • The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control

These inspections may be conducted regularly or in response to complaints from tenants or other members of the public. It’s possible to request inspection reports for rental properties in Greenville. The specific process for requesting these reports may vary depending on the agency responsible for conducting the inspections.

  • If the inspection was conducted by the City of Greenville’s Code Enforcement Division, you can request a copy of the inspection report by submitting a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the city’s legal department. You may also be able to obtain a copy of the report by contacting the Code Enforcement Division directly.
  • If the inspection was conducted by the Greenville County Building Codes Enforcement Division, you can request a copy of the inspection report by contacting the division directly or by submitting a FOIA request to the county’s legal department.

It is important to note that there may be a fee associated with obtaining inspection reports, and the available information may vary depending on the agency and the circumstances of the inspection.

Age requirements

Senior apartments in Greenville are available for adults ages 55 and up. Some complexes have income requirements, especially those that offer affordable housing or participate in the Housing Choice Voucher program. It’s important to note that the requirements for senior apartments may vary depending on the specific apartment complex or community.

COVID-19 regulations for Greenville senior apartments

There are no specific COVID-19 regulations for senior apartment communities in Greenville. However, individual senior apartments may have their own guidelines, so it’s best to check with the specific complex you’re interested in.

View the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s latest COVID-19 guidelines for the most up-to-date recommendations. For local information and the latest guidance, refer to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.

What to expect from senior apartments in Greenville

Senior apartments are a great option for active and independent Greenville seniors. They offer more accessibility options than regular apartments, with features such as hallway handrails and wider doorways. In general, senior apartments don’t provide health care services or assistance with tasks of daily living. What they do provide, though, is access to a lot of great amenities and services.

Senior apartments typically offer residents access to amenities such as a pool, fitness center, or clubhouse. Some complexes may offer picnic areas, grills, and fire pits for residents to use. Though more common in independent living communities, some senior apartments may also offer planned activities and even access to a concierge.

Many senior apartments are pet friendly, making it easier for those with dogs or cats to find an apartment they like. Keep in mind, though, that some require you to pay a fee for having your pet with you, and some have breed restrictions.

Greenville’s senior apartment scene features updated apartment units, with modern touches like stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and brushed nickel hardware. Patio and balcony units are also available at many of Greenville’s senior apartment complexes. Additionally, seniors can have peace of mind knowing they have access to on-site maintenance services, too.
