What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wake Forest

Situated just north of Raleigh, Wake Forest, North Carolina, has nearly 3,200 seniors, roughly 10.6 percent of the population. With only a tenth of the city's residents over the age of 65, Wake Forest is home to 24 assisted living facilities, with two directly within the city limits and 22 nearby.  Within Wake Forest and across North Carolina, assisted living facilities are referred to as adult care homes (ACH) and are monitored by the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation. ACHs are defined as residencies in which 24-hour personal care services are provided to two or more residents.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wake Forest

  • Wake Forest experiences a subtropical climate, meaning there are moderate temperatures throughout the spring, fall and winter. The city typically gets 45 inches of rain each year, slightly higher than the national average annual rainfall of 39 inches. Because Wake Forest is situated in the south, seniors who choose to live in the area will experience high humidity and little to no snow
  • The Wake Forest area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital, Duke Raleigh Hospital, located in Raleigh.
  • Wake Forest has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Northern Wake Senior Center, an organization that offers a full schedule of recreational activities such as aerobics, monthly social events and educational classes. 
  • The National Air Toxics Assessment measures the number of harmful pollutants in the air and assigns a numerical value on a scale of one to 100 to the air quality (with 100 being perfect air quality). Wake Forest's air quality score is exactly equal to the nation's average air quality score (58), making the city no better or worse for seniors who have asthma or other respiratory illnesses.

  • Wake Forest's violent crime rate is 18.1 percent lower than the national average violent crime rate, though the property crime rate in this city is only 4.3 percent lower than the national average. The low crime rates in Wake Forest could mean this area is a safe option for assisted living.
