Assisted Living Options
You’ll find both independently owned and nationally owned assisted living communities in Charlotte. Some of the area’s top-rated senior communities include the well-known Atria MerryWood and the various Brookdale communities. Many of the area’s assisted living communities offer multiple types of care, including memory care, respite care, skilled nursing care and various types of rehabilitation. Both short-term and long-term stays are options.

Most of Charlotte’s assisted living communities consist of multi-family residential buildings.

Neighborhoods
Charlotte is comprised of many distinct neighborhoods. You’ll find assisted living communities in neighborhoods like Cotswold and Myers Park. Cotswold is only a few miles from the city center, but offers a smaller and inviting neighbor-oriented atmosphere. It is made up of historic ranch homes and features small businesses and the Cotswold Village Shops. Myers Park offers a more natural setting with peaceful scenery. Myers Park is hope to more upscale shopping and dining, and the popular Freedom Park.

Charlotte is an expansive city, offering a variety of settings for those seeking senior living situations. The atmosphere is known to be friendly and welcoming, and each neighborhood offers something a little different.

Transportation Options
Many assisted living communities in Charlotte have their own in-house transportation for residents. Some schedule excursions residents can sign up for, while others will schedule transportation to doctor’s appointments and other routine outings. Some residents and families will still want to use public transportation, which Charlotte, NC offers. The Charlotte Area Transportation System (CATS) provides bus and rail service. The buses cover more area, but Charlotte is in the process of expanding its light rail (Lynx) services. Charlotte also has taxis and TMS Senior Transport Services.

Healthcare Options

Entertainment at Charlotte’s assisted living communities can include game nights, spiritual services, musical socials, group workouts, movies, hobby-focused classes, cocktail hours and holiday celebrations.
