    What to Consider About Memory Care in Myrtle Beach

    Myrtle Beach is a city along the Atlantic Coast of South Carolina with a senior population of around 5,247, many of who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. To accommodate these individuals there are eight memory care facilities in the area, including in places like Conway and Murrells Inlet.

    In Myrtle Beach and the rest of South Carolina, memory care facilities are called Alzheimer’s special care units (SCUs). These include stand-alone facilities or a designated area within an assisted living community. The lack of income tax in South Carolina and Myrtle Beach on Social Security retirement benefits and incomes up to $15,000 leave more money for seniors to pay for memory care.

    • The overall crime rate in Myrtle Beach is 433 percent higher than the national average. Seniors and other residents have a one in seven chance of becoming a victim of any type of crime, which means caution should be taken when outside of a facility.
    • Myrtle Beach is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as the Grand Strand Medical Center and the VA Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living in Myrtle Beach is 90.3. This is slightly lower than the state average of 94 and lower than the national average of 100. This makes it easier for seniors on a budget to make ends meet and have more left after paying for necessities.
    • Summers in Myrtle Beach are hot and humid with average highs around 88 degrees. Summers are short and cold with average January lows around 35. The city rarely gets snow, which makes it ideal for seniors who are sensitive to extremely cold temperatures.
