Overview of North Carolina Independent Living

North Carolina offers a variety of unique tourist attractions all over the state, including the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Biltmore Estate, just to name a few. Many retirees settle down into an independent lifestyle in places like Mt. Airy, Ashville and Winston-Salem. College towns like Chapel Hill are also proving extremely popular with retirees, while places like Pinehurst offer a variety of activities, including golfing and fishing. Low taxes, a mild climate, quick access to medical facilities and a relatively low cost of living have made the state a top destination for retirees, edging out long-time favorite destinations like Florida and Arizona.

Independent Living in North Carolina Defined

There are many different types of senior housing, but no other option offers retirees the freedom and flexibility that independent living communities offer. Most communities offer apartment-style homes that are designed with seniors in mind, making them easier to navigate and more compact than most ordinary dwellings. Independent living communities typically also offer restaurant-style communal dining, an abundance of social activities and arranged transportation to special events or daily errands. Unlike assisted living and nursing homes, independent living communities give seniors an opportunity to maintain their independence in an environment that is friendlier to older adults. You can find communities that offer assisted living and skilled nursing services in North Carolina in our Assisted Living and Nursing Home categories.
