Our Methodology: How We Chose the Best Assisted Living in Greenville

Greenville is relatively small compared to other cities in South Carolina, such as Charleston or Columbia. Nonetheless, it’s home to many assisted living facilities, and we spent 50 hours researching the best ones in the area. We focused on several important factors to find the best assisted living in Greenville.

  • Cost: The cost of assisted living in Greenville is lower than the national average. This makes it a good choice for seniors living on a tight budget. However, there’s a wide range of starting costs regarding assisted living, so we tried to find a good balance between cost and overall value.
  • Available care: All the communities on our list offer at least two types of care (assisted living and memory care). We looked for communities that provide seniors with different options so they don’t have to move elsewhere just to get the care they need.
  • Reviews: We look through hundreds of reviews to see what people have said about each community. This way, we can get an overview of the day-to-day operations of a facility, along with potential advantages and drawbacks.
  • Amenities: Amenities help an assisted living community feel more fun and homey. We focused on communities including comforts like beauty salons, outdoor seating areas, and fun daily activity schedules.
  • Location: Greenville County covers a fairly large area, and we found communities that were close to the city center, along with those that were a bit further out. We also focused on some of the surrounding attractions and conveniences, such as parks, shopping centers, and museums.
  • Staff size: We highlighted assisted living communities that offer high staff-to-resident ratios, often with a maximum of eight residents per caregiver.
