What to Consider About Assisted Living in Camden

The oldest inland city in South Carolina and the seat of Kershaw County, the city of Camden is home to a sizable senior demographic, as more than 20 percent of the population are seniors 60 and over. Camden is also home to two assisted living facilities, with a further 19 located close by. In South Caroline these facilities are called residential care facilities. As resident, seniors can expect to receive help from trained staff members with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing and medication assistance. There may be some facilities equipped to provide specialized care for seniors with disabilities. South Carolina's Department of Health and Environmental Control regulates and licenses residential care facilities in Camden and the rest of the state. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Camden

  • Camden has an array of resources for seniors, including the Camden Senior Center, which provides health and wellness programs, daily meals, educational activities, bingo and other games, guest speakers and recreational activities.
  • Seniors who live on fixed incomes may be pleased to learn that Camden’s cost of living index of 99 is slightly below the national average, which is 100. 
  • The state of South Carolina is one of several that don't tax social security checks. This can leave more funds in seniors’ budgets to help pay for assisted living care.
