    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Charlotte

    Charlotte, North Carolina, was the leader in gold production from 1799 until 1848 when the California gold rush began. This historic city is home to more than 62,000 seniors, some of whom may be in need of assisted living services. To support these seniors, there are 28 assisted living facilities in the city, with another three located in nearby communities. 

    Assisted Living Residences (ALRs) as assisted living facilities in Charlotte and the rest of North Carolina are called, are regulated by The North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Charlotte

    • Charlotte has a moderate climate with an average of 218 sunny days per year, 13 more than the national average of 205. Seniors who enjoy the outdoors may like living in Charlotte.
    • The Charlotte Area Transit System (CATS) runs the city's public bus system. Seniors with a Medicare card can obtain a Transit ID card, which gives them half-price fares.
    • North Carolina is fairly tax-friendly to seniors. Social security benefits are not taxed, however, retirement savings account withdrawals and pensions are fully taxed. Seniors in Charlotte who rely on social security for their monthly incomes may find that they have more money to put toward their healthcare budgets.
    • The cost of living in Charlotte is 106.7, slightly higher than the U.S. average of 100. Healthcare expenses also rank higher than the average at 114. Seniors with tight budgets might want to keep the cost of living in mind when preparing for facility expenses.
    • Charlotte has poor air quality. On a scale where 100 represents the areas with the cleanest air, Charlotte ranks 43, a full 15 points higher than the national average of 58. Seniors with respiratory issues like asthma or COPD might want to look for facilities in smaller communities in North Carolina.
    • Charlotte has a violent crime rate of 34.3 and a property crime rate of 53.6, both significantly higher than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4. Although these crime rates are higher than the average, seniors in assisted living are kept safe with safety precautions like alarms and security cameras.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Charlotte

    Seniors who need financial assistance to cover the costs of assisted living in Charlotte can apply for the State-County Special Assistance program and supplemental SSI payments. Both are separate from the state's Medicaid program, but can still be applied for through the Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services. The state's Medicaid program also offers a Personal Care Services (PCS) program that covers the costs of personal care services for seniors residing in assisted living facilities.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in North Carolina page.
