    Williamston, N.C., is located in Martin County on the east side of the state. It has a history dating back more than 200 years, and the town's motto is “easy living with hometown values." Of the 5,302 residents in Williamston, nearly 18 percent are ages 65 and over. There are two assisted living facilities (ALFs) in town, and one nearby in Hamilton. These facilities are called Adult Care Homes in North Carolina and they provide monitoring, health services, nursing services and other help, such as housekeeping. North Carolina Division of Health Service Regulation is the governing agency for ALFs in Williamston and all of North Carolina.
