What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fairview

Located in the Appalachian Mountains in the Asheville Metropolitan Statistical Area, Fairview provides seniors with beautiful scenery, a lively business district and a wonderful sense of community. The town has three assisted living facilities and there are 30 more in nearby Asheville for seniors looking for a place to retire.

Regulated by the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation, these facilities include assisted living residences and multi-unit assisted housing with service facilities. Both types of facilities offer help with daily living tasks, including grooming, meals and medication administration.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fairview

  • The city of Fairview has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital in Asheville.
  • Fairview has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Council on Aging of Buncombe County, which provides support and services to seniors in the area as well as at least one senior center.
  • Mountain Mobility provides deviated fixed-route public transportation for seniors in the Fairview and Asheville areas at discounted rates.
  • Fairview has an overall crime rate that is 66 percent lower than other comparable cities within the United States. Seniors have a 1 in 103 chance of becoming a victim of any type of crime, which makes the area safe for seniors.
  • Seniors who are on a budget may find Fairview a slightly challenging place to manage money. The cost of living is 123.2 which is higher than the national average of 100 and the state average of 96. 
  • The climate in Fairview offers warm summers with highs around 83 degrees Fahrenheit and cold winters with lows around 26 degrees. The city gets about 20 inches of snow per year, which is ideal for seniors who enjoy a winter wonderland. The city also gets about 44 inches of rain per year, just slightly higher than the national average of 39 inches.
