    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Roxboro

    The city of Roxboro is located in Person County, North Carolina, and is home to about 8,300 people. Seniors, who comprise approximately 20% of the population, are eligible to become members at the Person County Senior Center, which is located in Uptown Roxboro. The center is open on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and hosts social activities and congregate meals and organizes out-of-town getaways. 

    Seniors who need assistance with daily living activities such as bathing or meal preparation may reside in one of Roxboro's three assisted living facilities. These facilities, like all those in North Carolina, are officially designated as assisted living residences. They're licensed and monitored by the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation.   

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Roxboro

    • Public transportation for seniors in Roxboro is provided by Person Area Transportation System. It provides curb-to-curb demand-response service on weekdays, as well as out-of-county medical appointment routes on Mondays through Thursdays to Hillsborough, Durham, Chapel Hill and Prospect Hill.  
    • Roxboro is home to a variety of cultural amenities, and local senior centers and assisted living facilities may plan field trips to venues like the historic Kirby Cultural Arts Complex. This complex is located in the downtown region of Roxboro and features a performing arts center, two art galleries and several learning studios.
    • The Roxboro area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Person Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • With a cost of living that is 13% below the national average and 9% below the statewide average, Roxboro may be a good option for seniors who have limited resources. This is primarily due to the low cost of housing, which may bring down the cost of assisted living. 
    • Social Security benefits are not taxed at the state level in Roxboro, and retirees pay an affordable flat tax rate on other types of retirement income. This may affect how much money they have available for local care expenses.   
    • Compared to the rest of the state, Roxboro's weather is relatively cool. Summer highs are in the upper 80s, winter lows are in the upper 20s and the city receives 6 inches of annual snowfall. This may appeal to seniors who enjoy taking part in outdoor activities.
