What to Consider About Assisted Living in Shelby

In North Carolina, the state's Division of Health Service Regulation licensed adult care homes, or facilities that provide 24-hour services to residents. Care facilities that do not offer 24-hour supervision, such as multi unit assisted housing with services, are required to register with the division.

  • Shelby has 136 physicians per 100,000 people, which is approximately 35% lower than the national average of 210 physicians. Moreover, health care costs are also about 10% higher than the national average. That said, residents can enjoy easy access to medical facilities, such as Cleveland Regional Medical Center. Seniors in assisted living communities can also often receive on-site care.

However, the city is still susceptible to some snowfall; in January, Shelby usually receives about 1.8 inches of snow.
