    What to Consider About Memory Care in Mount Pleasant

    While Mount Pleasant is classified as a suburb of Charleston, it's also South Carolina's fourth-largest city, home to more than 80,000 residents, 15 percent of whom are 65 or older. Residents of Mount Pleasant who have Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia and need memory care can choose among the city's five residential facilities. Just down the road, Charleston offers five additional options.

    In Mount Pleasant as in the rest of South Carolina, residential care facilities house their memory care services in secure, segregated units known as Alzheimer's special care units (SCUs).

    • Mount Pleasant is ideal for seniors who enjoy mild winters and can tolerate hot, humid summers. The city's more than 200 annual sunny days give residents and their families ample opportunities to explore the miles of coastline and the many picturesque beach towns in the area, including Kiawah and Isle of Palms.
    • Mount Pleasant's cost of living is substantially higher than the state and national averages. Most of this discrepancy is due to the city's exorbitant housing costs. Groceries and health care are cheaper than average in Mount Pleasant, while utilities are only slightly more expensive. Those who want to live near their loved ones in Mount Pleasant but desire less-expensive real estate may want to look in nearby North Charleston, where the average house is less than half the cost.
    • Because of South Carolina's friendly tax treatment of retirees, seniors have more money left over to put toward the best memory care available. Not only are Social Security checks not taxed, but seniors receiving any type of retirement income receive an automatic $15,000 deduction.
    • Mount Pleasant is a safe city for memory care residents and their families. Its violent crime rate is 18 on a scale of 1 to 100 (with lower numbers signifying less crime). This rate is substantially lower than both the state and national averages.
