What to Consider About Assisted Living in Goldsboro

The North Carolina Division of Health Services Regulation is the section of the Department of Health and Human Services that monitors assisted living facilities in Goldsboro and throughout the state of North Carolina. The department inspects facilities to ensure they are providing the required care services and are up to date on all licensing requirements. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Goldsboro

  • The crime rate in Goldsboro is very high. On a scale of 100, the violent crime rate is 50.4, while the national average is 22.7. The property crime rate is also high at 80, with the U.S. average sitting at 35.4. However, seniors living in assisted living communities should still feel safe. The majority of facilities have 24/7 security systems, cameras and gated access in place for the safety of residents.
  • In Goldsboro, the cost of living is relatively low. Using a 100-point index with the U.S. average being 100, the cost of living in Goldsboro is 81.3. Housing, transport and groceries are much cheaper in Goldsboro than in the rest of North Carolina. This makes Goldsboro a good option for budget-conscious seniors.
  • Seniors in Goldsboro have easy access to a range of medical services at Wayne Memorial Hospital. The hospital has a number of specialist departments that may be of interest to seniors, including a cardiology unit, an oncology unit, neurology and rehabilitation. 
  • Goldsboro has an average of 213 days of sunshine each year, which is higher than the national average of 205. It receives just 3 inches of snow each year, making the winters very mild and relatively warm in comparison to the northern states. Summers can be hot and humid so seniors may need to budget for air conditioning in the warmer months. 
  • There are plenty of cultural and historic activities in the Goldsboro area that may be of interest to seniors. The city is home to parks and golf courses, where seniors can get out and enjoy the sunny weather. It is famous as a foodie spot and seniors will have a choice of places to eat out. 
  • The cost of health care is high in Goldsboro. It ranks at 115.1 on a scale where the national average is 100. However, the lower cost of living in general should make up for the higher costs of health care. Seniors in assisted living can rely on fixed monthly costs to make it easier to budget for medical expenses.
