What to Consider About Assisted Living in Raleigh

Raleigh, North Carolina, was originally called the "City of Oaks" by its founding fathers who dedicated themselves to protecting and maintaining the wooded areas and grassy parks in the area. This historically rich city is home to more than 33,000 seniors, some of whom may be in need of assisted living services. To support these seniors there are 24 assisted living facilities in Raleigh.

Assisted living facilities are known as Assisted Living Residences (ACRs) in Raleigh and throughout North Carolina, and are licensed by The North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Raleigh

  • Raleigh is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP. 
  • North Carolina fully taxes pensions and retirement savings account withdrawals but does not tax social security benefits. Seniors in Raleigh may want to keep this in mind when budgeting money for their facility expenses.
  • The cost of living in Raleigh is 111, more than 10 points higher than the national average of 100. Seniors with tight facilities budgets might find that the cost of living in Raleigh is too high for their liking.
  • Raleigh has a violent crime rating of 20.3, slightly lower than the national average of 22.7, and a property crime rating of 44.4, more than 10 points higher than the national average of 35.4. Concerned families might want to ask facility staff about security protocols in place to keep their residents safe.
  • Raleigh has poor air quality. On a scale where 100 represents areas with the best air quality, Raleigh ranks 50, eight points lower than the national average of 58. Seniors with respiratory issues might have a hard time breathing in the city.
  • Raleigh has hot summers with highs reaching 90 degrees. Families might want to ensure that facility rooms have air conditioning to keep their loved one comfortable during humid weather conditions.
