    What to Consider About Assisted Living in North Charleston

    North Charleston is part of the Charleston metropolitan area and has experienced strong, steady growth since its incorporation in 1972, with a senior population of just 9.4 percent. This city has two assisted living facilities for seniors, but there are another 18 in surrounding areas. The South Carolina's Department of Health and Environmental Control regulates these facilities,  officially known as community residential care facilities that provide residents with assistance with personal care and other daily living activities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in North Charleston

    • North Charleston has a particularly favorable climate for seniors who enjoy outdoor activities. Its comfort rating is 83 on a scale of 1 to 100, which is based on the total number of sunny days with low humidity during the year. The temperature range in North Charleston is typical for South Carolina, with an average low of 37 degrees in January and an average high of 91 degrees in July.
    • The cost of living in North Charleston is about six percent below the national average. However, housing is 24 percent below the national average, which accounts for the low overall cost of living. The cost of groceries, healthcare and utilities are all significantly above the national average in North Charleston, so seniors will need to budget more carefully than in most other cities.
