    What to Consider About Memory Care in Beaufort County

    Located on the east coast of South Carolina, Beaufort County has a population of 162,233 residents, 20.4 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 and older.  Some of these seniors may be among the 89,000 people in South Carolina living with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. By 2025, this number is expected to grow by over 34 percent. Beaufort County is home to five memory care facilities to support these seniors and their needs.

    Memory Care facilities in Beaufort County and the rest of South Carolina are referred to as Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) and Community Residential Care Facilities (CRCFs) and are licensed and regulated by the Board of Health and Environmental Control, Division of Health Licensing.

    • On a scale where 100 represents the best air quality, Beaufort County ranks 70.3 compared to the national average of 58. The higher air quality indicates that Beaufort County might be an ideal location for seniors with COPD or other respiratory issues.
    • Seniors and retirees in Beaufort County enjoy tax breaks. South Carolina only partially taxes pensions and retirement savings account income, and they don’t levy any taxes on Social Security benefits. Seniors who rely on Social Security as their sole source of income might appreciate the extra money to put toward their memory care budgets.
    • The cost of living in Beaufort County is slightly higher than the U.S. norm. On a scale where 100 represents the national average, the county ranks 114.3. However, groceries, healthcare and transportation are all lower than average. The higher housing costs may be a deterrent for seniors’ families planning to move to the area.
    • Beaufort County has a warm, sunny climate with summer highs reaching 91 and lows only dropping to 39. Although the area receives nine more inches of rain per year than the national average of 39 inches, it doesn’t get any snow.
