What to Consider About Assisted Living in Tarboro

Tarboro is a two hour drive west of North Carolina’s beautiful Outer Banks beaches and an hour east of Raleigh, the state capital. Seniors enjoy a small-town atmosphere in this city of about 10,844, which is a North Carolina Certified Retirement Community.

Nearly 24.5% of Tarboro’s residents are aged 65 and older, a testament to the desirability of this premier retirement destination. Tarboro is the home of two adult care homes (ACHs) to support seniors who require help with meals, housekeeping and medication management. The North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation licenses and regulates ACHs in Tarboro and the rest of the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Tarboro

  • Seniors can breathe easily while enjoying outdoor activities in Tarboro thanks to the clean, healthy air. The American Lung Association awards Edgecombe County an “A” grade for ozone pollution.
  • The Tarboro area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Vidant Edgecombe Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Summers are hot and humid in Tarboro, with July’s average high of 90 degrees making it one of the warmest places in North Carolina. Seniors can expect about 42 days per year with temperatures that exceed 90 degrees, which can make outdoor activities uncomfortable for heat-intolerant individuals. Winters are relatively mild with a January average low of 30 degrees and about 3 inches of snowfall annually.
  • Seniors may find Tarboro to be easy on the budget, with an overall cost of living that’s 21% lower than the national average. Savings are typically seen in grocery and transportation costs, although seniors can expect to pay about 20% more for health care when compared to the U.S. averages.
  • North Carolina is moderately tax-friendly toward retirees, with seniors in Tarboro not paying state taxes on Social Security benefits. Income from retirement accounts and pension plans is fully taxed.
  • Crime rates in Tarboro that exceed the national averages may concern some seniors and their families. On a 100-point scale, Tarboro ranks 49.8 for property crime, higher than the U.S. average of 35.4. Violent crime scores 27.8 in Tarboro, also a bit higher than the national average of 22.7. Adult care homes under consideration should be equipped with adequate security systems.
