What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pinehurst

Although assisted living facilities differ in their amenities and services, all providers are held to the same standards regarding staffing, care, meals, activities and resident rights. These regulations are enforced by the state's Adult Care Licensure Section, which is part of the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pinehurst

  • Pinehurst's cost of living is on par with the national average, which benefits seniors who depend on a fixed income. Housing is about 20% more expensive than average, but transportation is about 30% cheaper than in other parts of the county. Assisted living facilities can help seniors control their monthly expenses by offering a variety of services for a single fee.
  • North Carolina is a tax-friendly location for retirees. Social Security and railroad benefits are exempt from state income tax, and federal taxes on these funds are deductible. The local sales tax rate is half a point lower than the national average, and certain items, such as prescription drugs, are exempt. These tax policies may help seniors set aside more funds for care if needed.
  • Seniors in Pinehurst benefit from easy access to medical care. The city has 34.7 physicians per 10,000 residents compared to 21 nationwide. The nonprofit FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital has been recognized as one of the best in the state. It offers cancer care, orthopedics and bariatric weight loss surgery among other services.
  • Pinehurst's low crime rates make it a popular location among families and retirees. The community has a violent crime index of 8.3 compared to the national average of 22.7. The property crime index is less than half the national average. These statistics provide peace of mind to seniors and their loved ones.
  • Like other parts of the Sandhills, Pinehurst has a humid subtropical climate with nearly 50 inches of annual rainfall. Winters are cool with just a dusting of snow. However, summers are hot with highs around 90 degrees. Although Pinehurst has a Comfort Index of 7.5, seniors may still benefit from individualized climate controls.
  • Seniors in Pinehurst can maintain an active lifestyle with assistance from Moore County Transportation Services. The agency offers $4 rides to grocery stores, doctors' offices, pharmacies and other businesses. Fixed-route rides are available for just $2 each way. The vehicle can pick up and drop off riders up to 1 mile away from designated stops if needed. Most assisted living facilities offer scheduled transportation as well.
