What to Consider About Assisted Living in Aiken

Aiken is the largest city in Aiken County, which is in the western portion of South Carolina near the Georgia border. Nearly one resident in four is over the age of 65, which is a particularly high senior population. This fact helps account for the eight assisted living facilities in Aiken, with another 31 in surrounding areas like Augusta, Georgia. These facilities also provide seniors with assistance in daily living activities, including grooming and eating. The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control regulates these facilities, which are also known as community residential care facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Aiken

  • Aiken has a relatively comfortable climate overall compared to the rest of the U.S. The biggest disadvantage for seniors who enjoy outdoor activities is the high humidity during the summer. Winters tend to be cool and dry in Aiken, with almost no snow.
  • The cost of living is low in Aiken, about 15 percent less than the national average. The biggest reason for this benefit is housing, which is 36 percent less than the national average. Seniors will also benefit from the fact that healthcare in Aiken is 14 percent below the national average.
  • Aiken’s crime rate is particularly high, at 6,578 reported crimes per hundred thousand people per year. By comparison, the annual reported crime rate for South Carolina is 3,746 per hundred thousand people. Seniors should be particularly careful about crime prevention in Aiken, especially for property crimes.
  • Best Friend Express is the local bus service in Aiken, which also serves North Augusta and New Ellington. This service charges a fare for each zone, with senior citizens paying half the standard fare. Best Friend Express provides service Monday through Saturday, although the hours are shorter on Saturday.
  • The Smith-Hazel Recreation Center is operated by the city of Aiken. It hosts a range of activities for seniors, including card and board games, as well as fitness classes, line dancing and basketball.
  • The Aiken area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Aiken Regional Medical Centers, University Hospital and Surgery Center of Aiken, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
