Public Records and License Status
South Carolina offers average access to assisted living records with information available online but not available in a searchable way, which can make it more difficult for consumers to find the information they need.
To find a list of licensed assisted living communities in South Carolina visit their Licensed Facilities by Type website. They also offer another website with information about sanctions and a third website with inspection results. For more information about specific communities, consumers can contact the South Carolina Lieutenant Governor’s Office on Aging.
Violations and Resident Protection
South Carolina offers a current and accurate list of licensed assisted living facilities within the state. They also offer updated information about inspection results, survey results, complaints and violations. However, none of the information is searchable and data is located on three different websites.
They also provide information about special licenses that communities may have, their contact information and the capacity information for each facility. They do not provide payment information on their website.
South Carolina does not have a mandatory requirement for inspections but is able to fine communities for non-compliance.
