Located on the border between Georgia and South Carolina, the midsize city of North Augusta features beautiful green spaces, including riverfront parks and fishing spots. Its proximity to downtown Augusta, GA, provides access to numerous amenities.
There are 24,675 residents of the city as of 2021, including 4,416 people aged 65 and older. The relatively sunny climate and near total lack of snowfall has historically made North Augusta a popular vacation area for those escaping the cold, particularly during the winter months. Seniors may be particularly appreciative of the city’s very low violent crime rate, which is less than half the national average.
Likewise, the older population of North Augusta may also benefit from cleaner air. Aiken County receives an A-grade rating from the American Lung Association for its relatively few high ozone days. The tax situation for seniors in South Carolina as a whole is also relatively beneficial, with no tax on Social Security benefits and high deductions on other retirement income.
Assisted living in North Augusta costs an average of $3,606 per month, which is just $6 below the norm for South Carolina. The U.S. average is far higher at $4,500 monthly.
