As a well-established South Carolina continuing care retirement community, Park Pointe Village, has a beautiful campus near the scenic Charlotte area.
Administrative staff was not to my liking. They asked too many questions as to why I was visiting someone. They wanted to know what conversations would pertain to, and how long I would be visiting. None of this is their business. I would not refer anyone to Harbor Chase of Rock Hill. I do think they offer quality ...Read more HarborChase of Rock Hill reviews

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
The cost of senior care varies depending on the type of care required. In Rock Hill, nursing home care in a semiprivate room is significantly more expensive than any other type of care. In-home care, such as homemaker services and home health aides, is similar in cost to assisted living. However, these types of care don’t include living expenses, such as utilities, property taxes, rent, mortgage payments and food, which are usually included in assisted living costs. These expenses should be considered when deciding on the most appropriate type of care.
Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart
Medicaid in South Carolina, Healthy Connections, is operated by the state Department of Health and Human Services. It offers medical care to residents who are disabled, over age 65 or have very low income. It covers prescriptions, nursing care assistance, preventive health services, referrals and laboratory work. Recipients of Supplemental Security Income automatically qualify for Healthy Connections.
To be eligible for services, applicants must:
Applicants can find more information and apply for coverage by visiting the Healthy Connections Choices website, calling the service line at (888) 549-0820 or scheduling an appointment at the Healthy Connections York County Office located at 454 S. Anderson Road in Rock Hill.
Community Choices Waiver
Healthy Connections doesn’t offer assistance paying for assisted living. The Community Choices waiver program, however, assists Medicaid recipients who need a nursing home level of care but wish to receive services in an assisted living facility or in their home. The waiver helps pay for telemonitoring, delivered meals, durable medical equipment, house modifications, skilled nursing care, companion services and assistance with daily living activities, such as bathing, dressing, respite care, case management and transportation.
To be eligible, recipients must:
This statewide program is not an entitlement, so spaces are limited, and there may be a waiting list for services. It only covers care costs and not room and board; program enrollees are responsible for paying those costs. For more information or to apply for the waiver, residents should contact their local DHHS County Office or call (888) 286-2078.
Optional State Supplementation
South Carolina’s Optional State Supplementation Program helps seniors pay for room-and-board costs associated with assisted living facilities. Eligible seniors receive full Medicaid benefits, and a cash assistance payment is provided to the facility. To qualify for OSS, seniors must:
To apply for OSS, visit the Healthy Connections online portal or call the Medicaid Provider Service Center at (888) 549-0820.
Elderlife Bridge Loans
Bridge loans are short-term loans designed to ease the stress of financial gaps when a senior is transitioning to a residential care facility while waiting for sources of funding, such as the sale of a home or during an extended process of benefits approval. Loans can be approved in as little as 24 hours. Up to six cosigners can apply for one loan to lessen the importance of a single credit score or a senior’s age and health.
To apply for a bridge loan, contact Elderlife Financial Services at (888) 228-4500.
Veterans Aid & Attendance and Housebound Benefits
The VA offers several benefit supplements for veterans and their survivors who qualify for a VA pension. These are cash supplements that are added to existing pensions when recipients meet certain conditions.
The Housebound supplement requires that a veteran be largely confined to their home due to a permanent disability.
To qualify for the Aid & Attendance benefit, applicants must meet at least one of the following requirements:
Proof of at least 90 days of active, wartime service and an honorable discharge is required when applying for these supplements. The VA also recommends submitting documentation from a medical professional that assesses the veteran’s disability or impairment which restricts their ability to function.
To apply for these pension supplements, visit the York County Veterans Affairs Office at 529 S. Cherry Road, Rock Hill, SC 29732 or call (803) 909-7525.
