    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bluffton

    Bluffton, South Carolina is an eastern shore coastal community located adjacent to Hilton Head. Assisted living communities here, as in all of South Carolina, are commonly referred to as assisted living residences, or ALRs. Within Bluffton, there are two ALRs and an additional 24 in neighboring communities such as Hilton Head and Port Royal. Room and board and varying levels of personal care and activities are provided to aging seniors in the assisted living communities. ALRs in Bluffton and surrounding South Carolina areas are regulated by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and supported by the Division of Licensing.

     

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bluffton

    • The Bluffton crime rate is notably lower than the South Carolina state average with violent crimes scoring nearly 8 percent lower than the national average. This could be an incentive for seniors who are looking for the security of a low crime rate.

    • Living in Bluffton will cost seniors a bit more than in other parts of South Carolina. The cost of living in Bluffton is 16 percent higher than the South Carolina average with the cost of housing being the biggest factor in the cost of living difference. The higher cost of living may be a consideration for seniors who are looking for an affordable lifestyle.

    • Although air quality measurements are not specific to Bluffton, the air quality throughout South Carolina is above average as compared to the national average. Seniors with respiratory concerns may want to consider South Carolina as a great place to breathe clean air.

    • Sperling's Comfort Index ranks Bluffton 85 on a scale of 100, indicating that Bluffton has a considerably more comfortable year round climate than most other locations throughout the country. This may interest seniors who enjoy outdoor activities.
    • Bluffton seniors can take advantage of the fact that South Carolina does not tax Social Security retirement benefits and has a $15,000 deduction for seniors receiving any other type of retirement income, leaving more money in seniors' assisted living budget. South Carolina does have an above average income tax rate at 7 percent.

    • Bluffton is home to world-class medical facilities, including, Hilton Head Hospital and Bluffton Medical Services, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
