    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Newton

    Seniors who are history buffs find an array of fascinating discoveries in heritage-rich Newton, the county seat of Catawba County. A sampling of Catawba County listings on the National Register of Historic Places located in Newton include the 1924-built courthouse that currently houses the Catawba County Museum of History, the Newton Downtown Historic District and the 1887-built Grace Reformed Church, a stunning example of Gothic Revival style.

    Newton is home to a large senior community, with 16.3% of the city's population of about 13,000 aged 65 and older. Those who wish to continue living as independently as possible while receiving support for activities such as cooking and housekeeping can find two assisted living facilities in Newton with 13 others nearby.

    The North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation licenses ALFs in both Newton and the rest of the state, which are referred to as adult care homes      (ACHs).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Newton

    • Whether seniors are looking for dramatic performances, visual arts, musical entertainment or historical museums, Newton offers it. Popular annual events include the free Foothills Folk Art Festival in nearby Hickory with artist demonstrations, food vendors, beer gardens and live music.
    • Even though seniors living in Newton don’t pay state income taxes on Social Security benefits, Kiplinger considers North Carolina to be unfriendly to retirees. The state’s flat tax rate of 5.49% is assessed on all other forms of retirement income.
    • Newton offers a variety of resources for seniors, including the Newton Senior Citizens Club, which provides recreational activities, guest speakers and luncheons. The Newton Parks and Recreation Department and the Catawba County Council on Aging sponsor senior yoga and tai chi classes.
    • The Newton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Catawba Valley Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Newton’s climate might be a bit too wet for some seniors, since the city receives 46 inches of average annual rainfall. The sun, however, does shine for 215 days of the year.
    • Budget-conscious seniors appreciate the lower overall cost of living in Newton, which is 14% less than the national average. Although that's primarily attributable to the 40% lower cost of housing, retirees do save on transportation and groceries.
