What to Consider About Assisted Living in Dunn

North Carolina's Division of Health Service Regulation oversees assisted living communities in the state. This includes implementing safety rules, health care guidelines and care standards to ensure seniors receive appropriate support. The agency also investigates complaints and addresses concerns about the quality of life in care communities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Dunn

 

  • Residents of Dunn pay about $8,870 annually for health services. This is $640 more than North Carolina's statewide average, but it's significantly lower than the national norm of $12,914, making the city an attractive option for seniors concerned about medical care prices.

 

  • Betsy Johnson Hospital is centrally located within city limits for quick access to health services, including 24-hour emergency care, lab services and several specialties such as podiatry and cardiology.

 

  • Seniors can benefit from North Carolina's relatively low income tax rates. Actual rates can fluctuate due to prescheduled reductions, but generally, seniors can expect to pay 4.99% or less of their income toward state taxes. This is less than in nearby states, including South Carolina and Virginia, where income taxes max out at 5.75% and 7%, respectively. Additionally, seniors may be able to deduct Social Security benefits from their income for added savings.

 

  • Dunn has higher crime rates than the U.S. average. On a 100-point scale, the city ranks 36 for violent crime compared to 22.7 nationwide. Similarly, property crime is more common, ranking at 95 compared to 35.4 nationally. However, seniors should know that assisted living communities generally have safety features such as cameras, alarm systems, locked gates and monitored entrances, giving residents peace of mind.

 

  • Seniors with compromised immune systems can benefit from North Carolina State University's Air Quality Portal, which offers frequent air quality updates in Dunn to help residents avoid harmful contaminants.

 

  • Summer weather in Dunn is often very warm and humid. On the hottest days, high temperatures hover around 90 degrees Fahrenheit while lows dip to the mid-60s. Moisture levels are frequently high and uncomfortable throughout July, but assisted living communities usually feature effective climate control to keep residents comfortable. Many communities in Dunn also have extensive indoor activities, which can be helpful during winter when temperatures drop to about 35 degrees Fahrenheit.

Paying for Assisted Living in Dunn

 

Assisted living communities in Dunn charge $3,000 per month, on average.

The Cost of Assisted Living in Nearby Cities

Assisted living costs about $3,000 in Dunn, much less than the national norm of $4,500. Local prices are also competitive compared to neighboring cities such as Raleigh and Greenville, where rates are 79.6% and 53.7% higher, respectively. This trend is consistent across much of North Carolina, with the statewide cost of care averaging 33.6% above Dunn's typical price. However, some cities are cheaper, including Goldsboro at $2,700, so it's important to consider other options before officially choosing a facility in Dunn.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Assisted living facilities in Dunn offer personal care support and social activities for about $3,000 per month. Alternatively, seniors who want to continue living at home can consider in-home care, which provides one-on-one help with daily activities, or home health care, which includes a similar scope of services in addition to light medical care. Both options offer more privacy and personalization than assisted living, so they cost about $1,000 more per month.

Nursing home facilities are also more expensive at $6,722 monthly because they provide high-level medical support and 24/7 monitoring. In contrast, adult day health care is over $2,000 cheaper than assisted living, as services are limited to daytime hours in a communal setting.
