    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

    • 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.
