This coastal city in Southeastern North Carolina offers diverse shopping and dining experiences along with easy access to health care facilities and transportation services. With plenty of options for leisure and entertainment — like museums, historic sites, pristine nature parks, nearby sandy beaches, and local festivals — Wilmington residents can live an active, fulfilling retirement along the shores of the Atlantic.

In Wilmington, residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are often houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

Cost of Care Homes in Wilmington, NC

The median monthly cost of a room in a care home in 2019 was about $5,000 in the state of North Carolina. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary greatly.
