    What to Consider About Memory Care in Horry County

    Horry County, South Carolina, is home to popular tourist destination Myrtle Beach as well as a booming senior population — 23 percent of its 333,268 residents are aged 65 and older. Seven memory care facilities provide specialized care for Horry County residents who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.

    Memory care for South Carolina’s 89,000 residents living with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia is delivered in Community Residential Care Facilities          (CRCFs). In addition, some assisted living facilities in Horry County may also be equipped with Alzheimer’s Special Care Units (SCUs). These units offer residents assistance with daily living needs while providing structured social activities and basic medical and healthcare.

    • Horry County has a coastal climate, with January lows reaching 34 degrees F and July highs hitting 91 degrees Fahrenheit with 212 average sunny days per year. Because temperatures and humidity can become excessive at times, it’s always a smart move to ask prospective memory care staff about precautions they use to keep residents comfortable and safe.
    • The cost of living in Horry County is 6.3 percent lower than the U.S. average, making it easier to put more money toward needed healthcare services and assisted living.
    • South Carolina boasts some of the lowest property taxes in the United States. Residents do not pay tax on Social Security retirement benefits, and the state offers a $15,000 deduction on other types of retirement income, which can be beneficial for families that need to budget for memory care.
    • The crime rate in Horry County is 70.9 percent, which is more than double the U.S. average of 31.1 percent. Most memory care facilities protect residents' safety with the use of surveillance cameras and security systems.
