What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lexington

The seat of Lexington County and a suburb of Columbia, Lexington has a population of over 21,000 and a senior population of close to 17 percent.  Lexington features five assisted living facilities with a further 21 located within close proximity. When living at an assisted care facility, seniors can expect to receive assistance with activities associated with daily living such as bathing and dressing. The state’s assisted living facilities, also called community residential care facilities, are regulated by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lexington

  • Lexington's cost of living index is 104 which is slightly above the national average index of 100, but seniors shouldn't be unduly concerned if moving here from another area.
  • There are multiple cultural attractions that seniors may enjoy like Lexington County Museum, Icehouse Amphitheater, and the Riverbanks Zoo and Botanical Garden.
  • Lexington has an array of resources for seniors, including the Lexington Senior Center, which features educational activities, daily meals, bingo, arts and crafts, informative lectures, fitness classes and day trips.
  • The Lexington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Lexington Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Like many cities and suburbs around the country, Lexington has an elevated average annual crime rate that is above the national average. Lexington experiences, on average, 3,326 crimes per 100,000 people. The national average is 2,837 crimes per 100,000 people. Seniors should take standard precautions to secure their belongings and travel with companions. 
  • Much of the year, South Carolina experiences pleasant temperatures and weather conditions that seniors may enjoy. However, it is not immune to inclement weather conditions that include the effects of hurricanes. Summer temperatures can also be extreme with an average July high of 93. The heat and humidity may provide challenging for seniors with respiratory conditions.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Lexington

Currently, South Carolina is one of several states that does not provide public financial assistance for seniors requiring care at an assisted living facility. Its current waivers provide financial assistance for seniors who are aging in place at home and require support. On the other hand, seniors receiving SSI benefits may qualify for SSI to provide some assistance for this type of care.

Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in South Carolina page.
