What to Consider About Assisted Living in Andrews

Tucked away in the western corner of North Carolina, Andrews is just 150 miles from Atlanta, Knoxville and Asheville, leading many to joke that the town is two hours from anywhere. Of its 1,800 residents, close to 21% are aged 65 and older. Some of these seniors may benefit from the care services offered at one of four assisted living residences (ALRs) in Andrews.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Andrews

  • The Andrews area has a very pleasant year-round climate, so seniors can take advantage of the area's natural surroundings and outdoor recreation. Summer temperatures reach a comfortable 84 degrees, and mild winter weather brings just six inches of snow expected each year.
  • While rates of violent crime are moderate, property crime in Andrews is quite high. Measured on a scale of 1-100, the town is rated 65.9, which is nearly double the U.S. national average of 35.4. Most ALRs have security systems in place, though seniors may wish to inquire about a facility's safety policies and procedures.
  • At 81.4, the cost of living in Andrews is quite low, compared to both national and statewide averaged. This means that seniors on a tight budget can conserve funds, and put more of their retirement income toward the cost of personal care services in an ALR.
  • Andrews has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Bryson City.
  • Cherokee County Transit provides a regional transportation service to communities throughout the county, including Andrews, so seniors can get to shopping destinations, social engagements and medical appointments. Scheduled van service is also available daily for out-of-county trips.
  • Andrews is a historic town with a variety of arts and entertainment opportunities. Seniors can browse exhibits at the Andrews Art Museum, visit local wineries and breweries or explore the shopping and restaurants of Main Street.
