What to Consider About Assisted Living in Jacksonville

Home to Camp Lejeune, a Marine Corps base with a population of more than 47,000 Marines and sailors, Jacksonville is known as a military town where many residents are either active or retired service members.

For retirees thinking about moving into an assisted living facility in Jacksonville, the Jacksonville area has six from which to choose — three in Jacksonville and another three in nearby communities such as Denver, Wallace and Hampstead. In Jacksonville and throughout North Carolina, assisted livings facilities are called assisted living residences (ALRs). An ALR is defined as any group housing services program caring for two or more adults that offers at least one meal per day, housekeeping services and personal care services. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Jacksonville

  • For active seniors wishing to take advantage of outdoor activities, Jacksonville’s generally mild climate allows for regular outings. Winters are usually short with only one inch of snowfall on average.

  • Jacksonville has a lot to offer seniors in terms of arts and culture, from shopping centers to fine dining. Seniors may enjoy browsing through the Jacksonville Mall or sampling foods from around the world, such as French cuisine and Middle Eastern fare, at one of Jacksonville’s many restaurants. 

  • Jacksonville Transit offers riders fixed and express routes throughout the city of Jacksonville. Senior citizens age 65 and over may qualify for reduced rates. Amtrak Thruway bus service links with city’s buses to provide transit out of the city.

  • The Jacksonville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Onslow Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Jacksonville's crime rates are low. Violent crime, in particular, ranked on a scale of one to 100, is only 19, while the U.S. average is 31.1.

  • Under North Carolina law, Social Security income is tax-exempt. Other types of retirement earnings, such as pensions and 401(k) withdrawals, are taxed at the regular state income tax rate.
