    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Georgetown

    South Carolina’s third oldest city lies halfway between Myrtle Beach and Charleston. Historic Georgetown offers seniors oak-lined streets ideal for walking and a charming waterfront downtown area with a handicapped-accessible Harborwalk. Adults aged 65 and older make up about 16.4% of Georgetown’s population of approximately 8,800. To support these senior residents who need help with personal care, meal preparation and medications, Georgetown offers three community residential care facilities (CRCFs). Nearby Pawleys Island provides seniors with two more assisted living options.

    The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Division of Health Licensing regulates CRCFs in Georgetown and the rest of the Palmetto State.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Georgetown

    • Georgetown has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Bureau of Aging Services, which offers classes, programs, activities and supportive services as well as overseeing six senior centers in Georgetown County, four of which are in the city of Georgetown.
    • Seniors living in Georgetown benefit from South Carolina’s tax-friendly treatment of retirees. The state does not tax Social Security benefits and offers seniors a $15,000 deduction on other types of retirement income.
    • The Georgetown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Georgetown seniors aged 55 and over pay less than a dollar to ride The Coast RTA busses. Additionally, the nonprofit Neighbor to Neighbor volunteer-based transportation service in Georgetown County provides eligible seniors with rides to essential services, including medical appointments, grocery shopping, worship services and banking errands.
    • Seniors who enjoy outdoor activities year-round should consider that Georgetown receives an average of 54 inches of rain per year. This is much higher than the national average of 38 inches. July and August are quite hot and humid, with an average high around 91 degrees. Even though the city averages 51 days in which the temperature tops 90 degrees, it’s one of the cooler places in South Carolina.
    • Security-conscious seniors and their families may be concerned by Georgetown’s crime rates, which are significantly higher than the U.S. averages. Violent crime in Georgetown ranks a 56.9 on a 100-point scale, and the national average is 22.7. Property crime in Georgetown scores a very high 70.9, twice that of the U.S. average of 35.4.
