    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Southern Pines

    Southern Pines is located in the central part of North Carolina and was ranked as the second best place to retire in the state in 2018 by SmartAsset. It is often referred to as horse country due to the thousands of riding trails maintained by the Walthour-Moss Foundation. Seniors looking to retire here will find four assisted living facilities within the town and 11 in nearby cities like Pinehurst, Raeford and Sanford.

    Assisted living facilities are referred to as assisted living residences (ALRs) in the state of North Carolina. In Southern Pines as well as the rest of the state,  ALRs are regulated by the North Carolina Division of Health Services. There are two main types of ALRs, including adult care homes (ACHs), which have seven or more residents, and multi-unit assisted housing with service facilities.
