What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clayton

Assisted living facilities in Clayton are licensed through the NC Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Health Service Regulation. This governing body provides details on residents’ rights and outlines the rules facilities must follow related to care planning, building requirements and nutrition services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Clayton

  • Clayton has a humid subtropical climate and earns a comfort rating of 7.5 on a 10-point index, indicating generally pleasant weather throughout the year. Winters are chilly with low temperatures around 30 degrees, and summers are very warm with average highs near 90. The city gets 47 inches of rain and 2 inches of snow compared to the respective national norms of 38 inches and 28 inches. To help residents stay comfortable, many assisted living facilities have individually controlled thermostats in residents’ rooms.
  • The air quality in the Clayton region is exceptional, offering a comfortable and therapeutic environment for older adults managing respiratory or heart-related conditions. The American Lung Association gives the region the highest marks available for ozone and 24-hour particle pollution levels, along with a passing score for annual particle pollution.
  • Pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts are taxed at the state level as regular, nondeductible income, but North Carolina exempts all Social Security benefits from taxation. This may help seniors afford assisted living expenses in Clayton.
  • Clayton is a moderately affordable place to live, making it a financially viable option for many retirees with limited resources. Local living costs score about 4% higher than the state norm but 4% below the national norm on a cost of living index, with housing and utility expenses exceeding state averages. Many assisted living facilities offer all-inclusive pricing, reducing surprise expenses for residents.
  • On a 100-point index that gives lower scores to communities with lower rates of criminal activity, Clayton rates 14.6 for violent crime and 31.7 for property-related offenses. The frequency of both types of crime has declined significantly over the past two decades, promoting a welcoming environment for retirees.
