What to Consider About Assisted Living in Summerville

Summerville is located on the northeast border of North Charleston and is the host of the annual Flowertown Festival, which is the largest arts and crafts festival in South Carolina. The low cost of property taxes in Summerville make it attractive to young families, resulting in rapid growth with a relatively low senior population of 12 percent. However, this area still has 27 assisted living facilities, including six in Summerville itself and the other 21 in nearby cities like North Charleston and Goose Creek. These facilities also provide seniors with assistance in personal care and other daily living activities. The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control regulates the licensing of assisted living facilities, which it calls community residential care facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Summerville

  • Summerville has a high comfort rating of 75 on a scale of 1 to 100, meaning it has a large number of days with temperatures in the 70s and low humidity. The average low temperature is 36 degrees in January, and the average high temperature in July is 91 degrees. Seniors will find this climate allows them to spend time outdoors throughout the year.

  • The overall cost of living in Summerville is less than one percent above the national average. However, utilities and groceries are 14 and 8 percent above the national average, respectively, which impacts residents' budgets for incidentals.

  • Summerville has a high crime rate that makes it safer than only 11 percent of all U.S. cities. Its total crime rate is 39.74 crimes per thousand people per year, which is slightly greater than the average of 37.46 for South Carolina. Senior citizens in Summerville should focus their security precautions towards property crimes, rather than violent crimes.

  • The Charleston Area Regional Transportation Authority provides mass transit for the Charleston Area, including direct service from Summerville to downtown Charleston. Seniors 55 and up pay less than half the regular fare during non-peak hours. This transit system also offers senior days occasionally, when seniors can ride for free.

  • The Dorchester Senior Center provides a variety of activities for seniors, including arts & crafts, games, fitness and education. It also offers volunteer programs, auctions and in-home services. This senior center serves hot lunches Monday through Friday.
