What to Consider About Assisted Living in West Union

Nestled just to the southeast of the Nantahala National Forest, West Union is a scenic city in South Carolina with beautiful views and easy access to Lake Keowee. Listed as one of the best places for seniors to retire in Oconee County, West Union is home to one assisted living facility, with five nearby in the cities of Seneca and Six Mile. Regulated by the South Carolina Board of Health and Environmental Control, these community residential care facilities provide room and board and a degree of personal care for two or more adults.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in West Union

  • For transportation to and from non-medical errands and doctor appointments, Senior Solutions offers pick-up and delivery services at discount fares. Trips should be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance. The service also provides handicap accessible vans and lift buses for those who need additional assistance.
