Why look for assisted living in North Carolina?

North Carolina has a population of over 10 million, even though it is rarely noted for being that dense. The southern state of Georgia is comparable in terms of number of people, while fellow neighbor South Carolina only garners half the population. While many retirees flee to warmer climates to avoid the dreadful winter, for others they prefer four distinct seasons which makes North Carolina noteworthy. Though they do have a winter, it is still far less severe than the northern states, yet provides a nice mix.

North Carolina offers senior citizens small town charm, though major cities are in every direction and not too far away, a couple even less than an hour away. Charlotte is of good size, but is still not considered a major city by many.

Additionally, North Carolina is home to some fine higher institutions of learning, particularly Duke University which specializes in medical advances and is perfect for older adults who like continued learning during retirement. The health care in North Carolina is of high quality as well, with some ground-breaking research coming out of it every few years.

North Carolina offers financial assistance for senior living through the CAP/DA Medicaid Waiver, regardless of type of senior living, though it tends to provide funds more for nursing home residents than assisted living.

The Medicaid State Plan Personal Care option as well as the Adult Care Home Assistance program are worth checking as well if you require additional financial assistance paying for senior care.
