    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pawleys Island

    Pawley’s Island was given the surname of its first settler, Percival Pawley, and was visited by George Washington two years after he became President of the United States. This island has a population of 103 year-round residents, although thousands more appear in the summer months. Of these residents, 47.6% are seniors, some of whom may need assistance with their personal care. These seniors have two assisted living facilities on the Island to choose from, and another 10 located in nearby areas such as Myrtle Beach, Georgetown and Murrells Inlet.

    On Pawley’s Island, as is the case in all of South Carolina, these facilities are regulated by the Health Licensing Division of the Board of Health and Environmental Control and are called Community Residential Care Facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pawleys Island

    • South Carolina has tax-friendly policies toward retirees, which could intrigue Pawleys Island seniors with restrictive budgets. The state does not apply taxes to Social Security benefits, while pensions and retirement savings account withdrawals are partially taxed.
    • The cost of living in Pawleys Island is higher than both the state and national averages at 109.2, and seniors here can expect to pay more for groceries and healthcare than in the rest of the state or country. The area’s higher healthcare costs might be of concern to seniors with chronic health conditions or those who require frequent doctor visits.
    • Pawleys Island has an air quality rating of 78, which is 20 points higher than the U.S. average of 58. The high air quality in the region may be beneficial to seniors with heart or lung issues.
    • Violent crime is extremely low on Pawleys Island at 5.5, compared to the U.S. average of 22.7. The property crime rate, however, is 96.9, more than double the national average of 35.4. Seniors might want to ensure that facilities they look at on the Island have safety features like security cameras and alarms.
    • The Pawleys Island has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Murrells Inlet.
    • Pawleys Island has winter lows which rarely drop below 37 degrees and the island only gets one inch of snow each year, making the area ideal for those who dislike extremely cold temperatures.
