Learn More About Independent Living in Fayetteville, NC

Fayetteville is North Carolina’s fifth-largest metropolitan area and has been awarded the National Civic League’s “All-America City Award” for community engagement multiple times. Aside from its natural beauty and admirable community spirit, the city also has a large military presence and is a short drive away from Fort Bragg, one of the largest military installations in the country.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Fayetteville are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Fayetteville retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.
