Assisted Living Costs in Easley

The Genworth 2018 Cost of Care study shows that Easley’s average monthly cost of assisted living is slightly lower than the national average at $3,843, but higher than the $3,500 state average. When compared to major metropolitan areas in the northern half of the state, Easley is the most expensive for assisted living care. The difference is especially significant when comparing smaller South Carolina cities such as Spartanburg ($2,310) and Florence ($2,275).

Note: Senior care cost data wasn’t available for Easley, so data for the closest city, Greenville, was used.

Care Cost Comparison

Aside from location, the type of care required also has a major impact on the cost of senior care in the area. Nursing home care in Easley is almost double the average monthly cost of assisted living. Families can experience slight financial relief if homemaker or home health aide services are needed, with savings of about $80 per month. When choosing between senior care options, it’s important to consider the various home maintenance, food and utility costs related to remaining at home for a more accurate cost comparison with assisted living, which typically covers these expenses.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Easley

Medicaid in South Carolina

Medicaid is a federal- and state-funded health insurance program available to all Americans with limited income and assets. In South Carolina, Medicaid is known as Healthy Connections and administered through the state’s Department of Health and Human Services.

South Carolina Medicaid offers specific assistance programs for different levels of care. The Home and Community Based Services program provides services to eligible seniors in their home, for adult day care or when living in an assisted living facility.

To qualify, individuals must have a monthly income below $2,313 and $2,000 or less in assets. For married couples, the limits are $4,626 in income and $4,000 in assets. Certain assets are excluded, such as a primary residence valued at less than $585,000, one vehicle, household furnishings and jewelry.

Seniors in South Carolina who require a nursing home level of care also may be eligible for the Community Long-Term Care (CLTC) waiver. This program is designed for those who need the services normally received in a nursing home but would prefer to remain living in their home or community.

Services offered to eligible seniors can include:

  • Companion services
  • Case management
  • Assistance with daily living activities
  • Skilled nursing care
  • Disposable medical supplies
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Personal emergency response system
  • Adult day care
  • Community residential care/assisted living

More information about the South Carolina Medicaid program and CLTC waiver can be obtained by calling the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services at (888) 847-0908.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Optional State Supplementation

The Optional State Supplementation program is available to eligible, low-income South Carolina residents who are at least 65 years old and unable to care for themselves independently due to a disability or age-related health condition. Seniors must live in a facility that participates in the OSS program through SCDHHS and be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident. To qualify as low-income, seniors must have a monthly income below $1,456 and assets of $2,000 or less.

The OSS program provides state-funded payments directly to an assisted living facility, nursing home or in-home care organization to help cover the cost of care. Eligible applicants also receive full benefits from Medicaid.

For more information on the South Carolina OSS program, call the Healthy Connections Contact Center at (888) 549-0820.

These loans offer terms of up to 12 months, and once approved, funds may be accessed through a lump sum payment or line of credit.  Applications can be completed online or over the phone. To learn more, call Elderlife Financial at (888) 228-4500.
