What to Consider About Assisted Living in Southport

Originally named Smithville, Southport is known as one of the best cities and places to live in North Carolina. The city is located along the southeastern coast of the state, where the Cape Fear River meets the Atlantic Ocean. This makes Southport a beautiful location for seniors looking for a coastal place to retire. For those who are looking for assisted living facilities within the city to provide help with daily living tasks, there is one assisted living facility within the city limits and four nearby in Wilmington.

Regulated by the Division of Health Service Regulation, assisted living facilities in Southport include two main types. These include adult care homes with seven or more individuals and multi-unit assisted housing with service facilities. Both may provide medication administration, room, board, grooming and housekeeping.
