What to Consider About Memory Care in Lexington

Lexington is a rapidly growing suburb of Columbia whose low living costs and warm weather make it an attractive retirement spot for seniors — nearly 12 percent of the population. The town has two memory care facilities for residents with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. The state capital of Columbia, a 15-minute drive away on I-20, offers five additional choices.

In South Carolina, memory care facilities are housed within assisted living homes in secure, self-contained spaces known as Alzheimer's special care units (SCUs) or programs. 

  • For seniors who despise cold weather and can stand some summer heat and humidity, Lexington offers an ideal climate. Snow is rare — about 1 inch per year on average. The town gets 222 days of annual sunshine and 75 days that fall within the comfortable range of 70 to 80 degrees, giving memory care residents ample opportunity to enjoy supervised time outdoors.
  • The overall cost of living in Lexington is 4 percent lower than the national average, and housing costs are 14 percent less than in a typical U.S. city. This makes Lexington an attractive destination not only for budget-conscious seniors needing memory care but also for their family members wanting to relocate to be near them.
  • With no tax on Social Security retirement benefits, a $15,000 deduction for seniors receiving other forms of retirement income and some of the nation's lowest property taxes, South Carolina is popular with seniors. The state's low tax burden leaves more money for memory care residents to afford top-notch care.
  • Lexington's violent crime rate is lower than the national average. Although the town's rate of property crime is slightly elevated, seniors living in memory care facilities shouldn't worry as features such as guards, cameras and secure doors should keep their valuables safe.
