What to Consider About Assisted Living in Star

The small community of Star is located in Montgomery County and is the exact geographic center of North Carolina. It has a little less than 900 residents, over 100 of whom are seniors. This community may be an attractive option for safety-minded seniors who are seeking assisted living services in a community where crime isn't a big concern. On a 100-point crime index, with a low score indicating less crime, Star's violent crime rate is several points below the national median at 18.4, and the property crime rate is a little below the national median at 33.5. 

Assisted living facilities provide personal care services, along with housing, meals and often social and recreational activities, to seniors who need assistance with some activities of daily living. In spite of its small size, Star has two assisted living facilities, or assisted living residences, as they're formally called. These facilities are monitored by the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Star

  • Star's climate is relatively mild, which allows seniors to enjoy outdoor activities like golf throughout the year. Year-round highs range between 50 and 88 degrees, and the city gets just 3 inches of annual snowfall on average.  
  • Star is a very affordable place to live, which may make it a good option for seniors with limited resources. Its overall cost of living is about 20% below the national median and 15% below the statewide median, which may leave more money in the budget for assisted living expenses. 
  • On a 100-point health index, Star's air quality rates several points higher than the national average at 65. This may be good news for seniors with cardiovascular or respiratory conditions to consider.  
  • The Star region has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Troy.
  • Seniors residing in Star do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits. Other types of retirement income, including pension income and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts, are subject to a flat income tax rate. 
  • Star has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Montgomery County Council on Aging, an organization that provides transportation services, health screenings and travel programs for area seniors, as well as one senior center.
