Greenville, SC is a southern community located along the I-85 midway between Charlotte, Georgia, and Atlanta. This central location offers Greenville residents all the convenience of a big city but with a small-town charm. It is a mid-sized metro area with award-winning school system, low cost of living, amazing climate and excellent healthcare options. This all contributes to an amazing quality of life here in Greenville.
Cost of Living
In retirement, one of the largest causes for concerns is the financial cost of not having a steady stream of income. This is especially so when taking into account that many older individuals will require additional care as they grow older or be more susceptible to medical conditions or disabilities. One crucial concern would therefore be having a lower cost of living in the area that you live in.
In Greenville, SC, the cost of living in our retirement community is a lot lower than in the surrounding areas. One of the clearest ways to measure this is through the national Cost of Living Index (COLI). Measuring 90.3 indicates that we are well below average of all the cities in terms of how expensive it is to live here. More importantly, unlike other cities where there is a rising cost of living, Greenville has historically reported a lowered cost of living over time.
Culture, Recreation, and Entertainment Options
For older adults, going for intense mountainous hikes or partying all night might not be sustainable for everyday entertainment. Having a wide range of different options to choose from is important for residents in a 55+ community to continue staying engaged and have access to fun and exciting activities. Greenville has many of these amazing spots to offer with the Peace Center for Performing Arts, the Bob Jones University Museum and Gallery, Greenville Symphony and Orchestra and even the International Ballet. Regardless of rain or shine, there will definitely be an interesting event to join in to make the most of your afternoon!
Having access to excellent and dependable healthcare is crucial regardless of your age, but even more salient for seniors who might be coping with different health conditions. Greenville is home to two of the best healthcare providers in the Southeast – Greenville Health System (GHS) and Bon Secours St. Francis Health System. For those who are settling down with their families, Greenville also houses the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital. This means that you’ll have access to the only Level I trauma center in the region and have access to a wide-ranging offering of services. For women, GHS also offers the most comprehensive program for women’s health.
