What to Consider About Assisted Living in Conover

North Carolina retirees looking for a small-town atmosphere and an easy drive to big-city amenities might find Conover worth a look. The 8,400-resident city is the geographic center of Catawba County, and thanks to multiple major highways that pass through it, including Interstate 40, Conover is one of the most easy-to-access cities in the Charlotte Metro Region.

Conover is home to a large senior population, with 17% of its residents aged 65 and older. To serve those who need help with grooming, housekeeping, meals and medications, Conover provides four assisted living facilities, or adult care homes (ACHs) as they’re called in the state. Nearby cities, including Hickory, Newton and Arden, offer another nine. The North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation licenses all such residences in Conover and the rest of the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Conover

  • The Conover area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Catawba Valley Health System, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • While seniors may pay a little less for groceries in Conover when compared to the national average, that savings may be eaten up by higher healthcare costs. Because housing prices are 32% lower here on average, the overall cost of living in Conover is about 12% lower than the U.S. average.
  • Seniors and their families may be concerned by the property crime rate in Conover, which is nearly double that of the U.S. average. Violent crime is lower than the national average by about six points on a 100-point scale. Ensuring the assisted living community under consideration is equipped with state-of-the-art security systems can provide seniors with reassurance.
  • Conover is one of the cooler, less-humid cities in North Carolina, which may please seniors who don’t fare well in the heat. July has an average high temperature of 87.6 degrees, and January’s low averages 27 degrees.
  • Seniors living in Conover don’t pay state income taxes on Social Security benefits. However, North Carolina does tax income derived from public and private pensions.
  • Conover has an array of community resources for seniors, including Neighbors Network, a program in Catawba Valley that provides health and wellness resources, social and cultural activities, and technology, insurance and legal support for adults aged 50 and over.
