What to Consider About Assisted Living in Seneca

Assisted living facilities in Seneca are officially called community residential care facilities, and they’re licensed through the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. This department enforces minimum standards for staffing, care planning and building requirements, and it publishes information on residents’ rights. It also conducts scheduled and unannounced site inspections to promote a high standard of care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Seneca

 

  • Seniors in Seneca don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, and those aged 65 and over can claim a deduction of up to $15,000 on all other types of retirement income. Additionally, those who receive a veterans’ pension can exclude up to $30,000 of their income from taxes. This may help some seniors afford local assisted living expenses.
  • Prisma Health Oconee Memorial Hospital is located in Seneca proper, giving local seniors access to a broad range of primary and specialty care services. This hospital is recognized among the top hospitals in the nation for its excellence in pulmonary care, and it provides services in orthopedics, radiology and heart care. While the number of physicians per capita is low in Seneca, coming in at 164 versus 210 nationally, many assisted living facilities prevent gaps in care through on-call physicians.
  • The overall cost of living in Seneca is low compared to state and national norms, making the city a financially viable retirement destination for many seniors. On an index set to a national norm of 100, the city scores 85.6, several points lower than South Carolina’s score of 89.3. While utility costs are a little high here compared to the nation as a whole, housing costs are low and may result in competitive assisted living rates.
  • On a 100-point scale that gives lower values to communities with less reported crime, Seneca scores 19.5 for violent crime and 39.9 for property-related offenses. By comparison, the national violent crime score is higher at 22.7, but the property crime rating in the United States as a whole is lower than in Seneca at 35.4. Fortunately, assisted living facilities have security gates and high-security locks to promote residents’ peace of mind.
  • Year-round temperatures in Seneca range from 31 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, which is cool by South Carolina’s standards. Residents see about 2 inches of annual snowfall, which generally comes in January, and 53 inches of rain. Assisted living facilities typically provide indoor and outdoor amenities and activities, letting residents stay active and comfortable year-round, regardless of their weather preferences.
