What to Consider About Assisted Living in Brevard

The division maintains records of license violations and handles complaints about facilities, making it a good source of information for families looking for quality care for loved ones.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Brevard

 

  • Violent crime rates are exceptionally low in Brevard, measuring at just 9.5 on a 100-point scale, whereas the U.S. average is 22.7. Although the property crime rate is 40.4, slightly higher than the national figure of 35.4, the security features and constant staff presence in assisted living communities reduce the risk of property crimes, making Brevard safer for seniors in long-term care.
  • Brevard's mild climate features comfortable winters 3.1‬ degrees above the national average and summers 1.8 degrees cooler. While the region experiences nearly double the average rainfall and approximately 24 more rainy days, it gets 20.2 fewer inches of snowfall annually — less than a third of the national norm.
  • Health care can be slightly expensive in Brevard, averaging 10.3% more than the U.S. norm. The city also has only 151 physicians per 100,000 people — 59 fewer than usual. However, the region has several clinics, pharmacies and specialist offices. It's also home to Transylvania Regional Hospital, providing prompt medical care without the need to travel to neighboring cities.
  • Brevard has a low cost of living, measuring at 92 on a 100-point index, where the U.S. average is 100. Transportation is especially inexpensive in the city, allowing outgoing seniors to shop, dine and explore the region even if they don't drive.
  • The income tax rate is 5.5% in Brevard, compared to 4.6% on average nationwide. While this higher tax rate can make the city slightly more expensive for seniors, the sales tax rate is 0.5% lower than usual and Social Security income is exempt from taxation in North Carolina. As such, seniors may still find Brevard relatively affordable.
  • Transylvania County has public transportation options, such as a fixed-line bus service that allows seniors to reach many local attractions in Brevard. The county also operates ADA Complementary Paratransit services, allowing seniors with disabilities to travel comfortably.
