What to Consider About Assisted Living in Port Royal

Located in the heart of South Carolina’s Low Country, the town of Port Royal lies on Port Royal Island in Beaufort County. Seniors who enjoy beachcombing, boating and birdwatching may love this land tucked between the Beaufort River and Battery Creek. The conservation-minded town offers a network of walking trails and a lengthy boardwalk.

Approximately 7% of Port Royal’s residents are aged 65 and older, and those who require help with housekeeping, transportation and personal care can find three community residential care facilities (CRCFs) in Port Royal. Nearby Beaufort and Hilton Head provide eight more. CRCFs in Port Royal and throughout the state are regulated by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Division of Health Licensing.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Port Royal

  • The Port Royal area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Beaufort Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Port Royal is 10 minutes from Beaufort, where seniors can explore 20 independent art galleries in Beaufort’s cultural district. The USCB Centre For the Arts features a 460-person auditorium that hosts the USCB Chamber Music Concerts and the Beaufort Theatre Company.
  • Seniors may be surprised to know the overall cost of living in Port Royal is about 10% lower than the U.S. average. Transportation costs are 35% lower, and seniors pay less than the national averages for groceries and healthcare.
  • Older adults seeking a comfortable year-round climate find it in Port Royal, which scores an 86 out of 100 on Sperling’s Comfort Index. Average summer highs in July of 91 degrees and winter lows in January of 39 let most seniors enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle.
  • Security-conscious seniors should verify that any assisted living facility in the Port Royal area under consideration is equipped with a state-of-the-art security system. While the town’s violent crime rate of 17 out of 100 is lower than the U.S. average of 22.7, the property crime rate of 36.3 is almost on par with the national average of 35.4.
  • Port Royal seniors benefit from South Carolina’s tax-friendly treatment of retirees. The state does not tax Social Security benefits and provides a $15,000 deduction for other types of retirement income.
