Nursing Homes in North Carolina

Overview of Nursing Homes in North Carolina

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, on North Carolina’s western edge is where 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.

There are more than 170 nursing homes in North Carolina. A Place for Mom’s Senior Living Advisors can provide you with a list of nursing homes in North Carolina to help you find the community that fits your needs and budget.

The median monthly cost of a private room in a nursing home in North Carolina is about $7,700, according to Genworth.
