    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clayton

    Clayton, North Carolina, is located just outside the major city of Raleigh and is considered a satellite town in the metropolitan area, thanks to the surrounding research triangle and access to major highways in the area. Less than ten percent of the population is over 60 years of age, but there are 11 assisted living facilities in nearby cities. All of these ALFs are regulated and licensed by the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Clayton

    • Weather in Clayton drops well below freezing in the winter from December through February with temperatures as low as 28 degrees and will average 3 inches of snow per year. Summers highs will climb to 89 degrees, but the rest of the year has temperatures in the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

    • Even though it's near the major city of Raleigh, Clayton has good to moderate air quality for much of the year. Pollen levels can affect these numbers on a seasonal basis.

    • The cost of living in Clayton is on par with the averages in the rest of the U.S. and just above the average in the state, as per the Best Places scale. Housing is more expensive at $202,800 than the state mean at $171,500 but less than the national average of $216,200. Necessities like groceries (100.2), utilities (106) and health care (97) are just slightly above or slightly below the national average scale of 100.

    • With a crime rate at 1.38 violent crimes per 1000 people, it is almost a third of the state average that is 3.72 violent crimes per 1000 people and even less than the national average of 4.0, making Clayton a safe suburb.

    • The Community and Senior Services of Johnston County, where the town of Clayton is located, provides a wide variety of resources for seniors in Clayton and the surrounding area, namely providing transportation for those who need it. This includes transport from the assisted living facility to medical appointments or just to run general errands around town.

    • Clayton has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital being WakeMed Health & Hospitals, located in Raleigh.
