Independent Living in South Carolina Defined
Independent living facilities are designed to accommodate seniors who are in relatively good health and do not require professional attention or supervision of their day-to-day activities. Members are welcome to come and go as they please and enjoy the freedom retirement offers. While the exact services offered by independent living communities vary from place to place, most senior living communities offer certain amenities that are not available in the average condominium or apartment complex. These services may include three meals a day, transportation to and from doctor's appointments and shopping excursions, social activities, the use of a swimming pool and fitness services. Unlike other care facilities, such as nursing homes or assisted living communities, South Carolina independent living facilities offer complete privacy and autonomy to tenants. You can find communities that offer assisted living and skilled nursing care in South Carolina in our Assisted Living and Nursing Home categories.
