    What to Consider About Memory Care in Summerville

    Summerville is one of the fastest-growing cities in South Carolina, including senior citizens, who make up 12 percent of the population. The city has three residential memory care facilities for residents with Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. Less than 30 minutes away, Charleston and its inner suburbs offer many additional options.

    In Summerville, as in all of South Carolina, memory care facilities are set up as standalone operations known as Alzheimer's special care units (SCUs) that operate within larger assisted living centers.

    • Summerville has a four-season climate. Summer can be intense, with average July highs above 90 along with high humidity, but winter is typically mild, and fall and spring are beautiful. The skies are sunny more than 200 days out of the year, and Summerville averages 75 annual days within the comfortable range of 70 to 80 degrees. Memory care residents who like to relax outside or enjoy supervised recreation have ample opportunity to do so.
    • The cost of living in Summerville is 8 percent higher than in a typical U.S. city. But that is largely due to the city's high housing costs — 12 percent above the national average — amid its recent growth. Memory care residents and their families will find that staple purchases such as groceries, health care and miscellaneous items are no more expensive than average in Summerville.
    • Retirees in South Carolina enjoy highly favorable tax treatment. Social Security checks are not taxed. Residents receiving other forms of retirement income get a $15,000 deduction. Property taxes are also among the nation's lowest, which may be important to family members wanting to purchase a home near their loved ones in memory care.
    • Memory care residents and their families can feel safe and secure in Summerville, where the violent crime rate, at 22 out of 100, is substantially lower than the national average of 31.
