    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wallace

    Wallace is a small community of about 3,900 residents located in Duplin County, North Carolina. It has an array of community resources for its 800 seniors, including those provided by Duplin County Services for the Aged, an organization that offers transportation services, meal programs and social activities for older residents, as well as one senior center.  

    Seniors who need help with some activities of daily living may transition to an assisted living facility, which provides housing, meals and care services. In Wallace, as in all of the state, these facilities are officially referred to as assisted living residences, and they are governed by the North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation. Wallace has three facilities, and there is one more in the nearby city of Rose Hill.   

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wallace

    • Wallace may be well-suited to seniors seeking budget-friendly assisted living. Its overall cost of living is about 17% lower than the national average and 13% lower than the statewide average, which may drive down the cost of senior care. 

    • Property crime occurs at a high rate in Wallace, so seniors may want to keep their vehicles locked and their belongings secure, especially when they're out alone. However, the rate of violent crime is lower than state and national averages, which may provide some peace of mind. 

    • Wallace's climate is relatively warm compared to the rest of the state. Year-round highs range between 55 and 90 degrees, and the city receives just 1 inch of annual snowfall. This may appeal to seniors who enjoy outdoor activities. 

    • On a 100-point health index, Wallace's air quality rates 15 points higher than the national average at 73, indicating a lower level of hazardous air pollutants. This may make it a good option for seniors, especially those with health conditions that are worsened by smog or particle pollution.  

    • Wallace is moderately tax-friendly to retirees, which may positively impact seniors' assisted living budgets. Social Security income is not taxed, and all other types of retirement income are taxed at a flat percentage rate. 

    • The Wallace area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Burgaw.
