Assisted Living in Fayetteville

What Is Assisted Living?

As there is no national definition of “assisted living facility,” the term covers a vast range of services and options but generally refers to a long-term senior care residence that provides basic amenities like meals, medication management, and transportation. As opposed to a nursing home facility, an assisted living facility does not typically offer 24-hour medical care as the residents can live independently in some fashion.

Assisted living facility residents tend to be mobile, so they are often afforded greater privacy that those living in a nursing home. For example, you may be able to rent private studios or apartments at an assisted living residence. If both of your parents are looking for an assisted living community, an assisted living facility may be able to accommodate them living together, even if they require different levels of care.

The type of community within the facility is often defined by the size or design of the building, as well. Within major cities, assisted living facilities may be located tightly within tall apartment buildings and among a bustling downtown, while facilities in the suburbs may find itself nestled on a large campus with vast amounts of shared communal outdoor space.

What Is Senior Living Like in Fayetteville, NC?

A mid-sized city with a rich history, Fayetteville, NC, is an ideal place to find yourself as a senior. Fayetteville may be most well-known for Fort Bragg, a military base established in 1918. Military buffs and veterans may also find themselves entranced by the dynamic exhibits of the Airborne and Special Operations Museum near Fort Bragg.

Fayetteville history deserves to be explored through its assortment of historic sites and museums. The Museum of the Cape Fear Historical Complex tells the story of the cultural heritage of the region. Specific exhibits speak to Fayetteville’s storied past, from early Native Americans to an early twentieth-century general store complete with period-specific merchandise. The complex also provides access to the 1897 Poe House, a Victorian-period historic house museum, as well Arsenal park, named after the remnants of the Fayetteville Confederate arsenal that still reside at the 4.5-acre outdoor space.

There are plenty of shopping options in the area, too, as over 150 stores and covers can be at Cross Creek Mall. Initially opened in 1975, the mall covers over 1,000,000 sq. ft. and can be found just off the 401 Bypass.

What Services Are Available?

The available services tend to vary between each facility. However, some common options should be available at least one location near you:

  • Accommodations for special diets
  • Art classes
  • Book clubs
  • Communal gardening spaces
  • Community pets
  • Complimentary transportations
  • Devotional and religious services
  • Foreign-language speaking staff members
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Incontinence care
  • Laundry service, including dry cleaning
  • Library services
  • Movie room or theater
  • Offsite activities and trips
  • Onsite beauty salon
  • Outdoor BBQ or grill

  • Yoga

How Transparent Are Assisted Living Inspections and Ratings in Fayetteville?

The state of North Carolina received a “High” rating regarding its level of transparency towards assisted living facility date, inspections, and reports. States that have received our “High” rating have separate searchable databases for assisted living facilities, licensing, and regulation data, but may lack inspection and regulatory action information. Among all states, North Carolina ranks in the top quartile of assisted living facility transparency due to the depth of their databases and the state’s intuitive inspection score star rating for each provider.

How Much Does Assisted Living Cost in Fayetteville?

One of A Place for Mom’s strength as the most extensive free senior care referral service in North America is our ability to collect data and provide relevant information to families searching for care. Whenever we help a family find an assisted living facility for their loved senior, we ask the incurred prices so we can determine the average monthly costs in any geographic area. However please know that actual costs may vary from any of our averages by as much as $1,000 per month in any given city or region.

The average cost for assisted living in the state of North Carolina $3,842 a month. The prices in Fayetteville itself sit about $300 below that mark, at $3,545 per month. Fayetteville’s monthly average also hits reasonably close to the general metro area’s, which is $3,563 a month. Fayetteville also compares favorably to Raleigh, the state capital situated about an hour north. Assisted living facilities in Raleigh average a monthly cost of $4,272. However, the majority of other towns and cities match Fayetteville’s monthly mark.

How Can I Afford Assisted Living?

It’s worth beginning to search, tour and evaluate facilities as soon as you’ve decided it’s the right choice for you and your loved ones. By acting early, you may be able to place yourself on a waitlist for a popular-for-a-reason facility as opposed to being forced to go with a higher priced and imperfect option.

By doing your research and asking for help from your Senior Living Advisor, you’ll be able to pick the right choice first. Doing so will help limit multiple pricey move-in and move-out fees while also ensuring your loved one is in the community that’s right for them. After you’ve found the right facility, don’t hesitate to discuss different pricing options plans with them. By delaying or pushing up your move-in date, you may be able to receive financial incentives that can help reduce costs. Instead of a more expensive and comprehensive plan, check to see if services are offered in an a la carte pricing structure, especially if your senior is especially independent or doesn’t have specific needs.

If you’re from the area, there’s a good chance the loved one in need of an assisted living residence is a veteran or a spouse of one. If so, make sure to check with the Department of Veteran Affairs about potential assistance programs, such as the Aid and Attendance benefit, that may also help to reduce what you pay out of pocket.

Finally, should your loved one be transitioning from their home to an assisted living community, you have a couple of potential options to help gain additional funds. If you don’t plan on keeping the house, proceeds from the sale may provide a way to pay for care. If you are planning on keeping the house, an equity-based line of credit can help give access to funds to pay for care.

Does Medicare Pay for Assisted Living?

Unfortunately, Medicare does not pay for many types of senior care:

  • Assisted living
  • Long-term care at a nursing home
  • Residential care homes

Medicare typically covers only short-term care, including limited rehab stays due to hospitalization. Depending on whether you receive inpatient or outpatient care, Medicare may assist with some hospital services costs.

What Are the Signs It's Time for Assisted Living?

It can be challenging to know when’s the right time for your senior to transition to an assisted living community. A physician may help with a specific diagnosis or offer care recommendations based on your loved one’s mental and physical capacity. It’s also essential to keep an eye on your loved one for potential signs indicative of a need for assisted living:

  • Agitated behavior that increases throughout the day, also known as “sundowners syndrome”
  • Increased and consistent anxiety
  • Wandering or purposeless movement

Another significant sign your senior may require the care and community of an assisted living residence is if their caretaker is feeling increasingly stressed due to escalating care needs. Taking care of a senior can exact a psychological toll, especially when you’re already dealing with the normal day-to-day stress of your personal and professional life. Taking care of your needs is just as important as taking care of your loved ones, and an assisted living facility can help ease any burden you may feel.

What to Look For When Touring Assisted Living Facilities

A local Senior Living Advisor from A Place for Mom can coordinate with you, your family and potential assisted living facilities to book tours and help ensure you see as much as the building and residences as possible. By providing your Advisor your senior’s specific needs, they can help formulate a list of questions to ask your tour guide, staff, management, and current residents.

How Do I Make the Right Choice?

By choosing to find an assisted living facility in Fayetteville, you’ve already made the best choice for you, your family, and the senior in your life. Now the focus should shift to finding the assisted living facility that best fits your and your loved one’s needs.

A Place for Mom understands the emotions that come with this journey. Our Senior Living Advisors are knowledgeable, resourceful, and empathetic. We’re dedicated to working with you so we can achieve our mutual goal of finding a community that feels like a fit for you and your loved ones. We’ll guide you through each aspect of finding care, from casting a wide net to booking tours at potential facilities.
