Assisted Living in North Carolina

When it comes to assisted living, North Carolina is a great choice for you or your loved one.

Whether you prefer laid-back beach towns, mountain hikes, or something in between, North Carolina has something to offer — and that’s what makes it an ideal retirement destination. The Outer Banks region along the state’s eastern coast is a popular tourist spot, featuring lighthouses, beaches, and countless other aquatic activities. It’s also home to Kitty Hawk, the seaside town where the Wright brothers made their historic first airplane flight. Then, along North Carolina’s western edge, the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains run through the state. Peppered throughout all of North Carolina are small yet vibrant college towns like Asheville and Chapel Hill, along with larger metropolitan areas like Charlotte. Add mild weather and low property taxes to the mix, and it’s clear why the Tar Heel state has one of the fastest-growing populations in the United States.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 380 assisted living facilities in North Carolina.

The median monthly cost of assisted living in North Carolina is about $4,600.

Lynn's Home at Riverside in Raleigh, NC
5.0

My aunt was a resident before her passing at Riverside! She received the most loving care possible! I would recommend this care home to anyone! Your loved one receives individual care as if they are in their own home! The small environment offers the comforts of one's own home! The staff was always on top of everything! I enjoyed every visit there!

This is a good place to go. The staff, activities stand out to me to make it a good place. They could improve on the cleanliness of the resident's room, and laundry. The people there are so nice and friendly.

Abbotswood at Stonehenge in Raleigh, NC
5.0

Abbotswood at Stonehenge has provided an exceptional independent living experience for my mother for 9 years. The staff are all so caring and are always working to provide the best community atmosphere. While I was concerned about her transitioning from her house of 50+ years, the apartment at Abbotswood was exactly right and immediately became her home. The location in north Raleigh is near shopping, entertainment, and medical facilities.
