The 10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Wilmington, NC
Nestled between Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean, the historic port city of Wilmington is a popular destination for retirees. This community is known for its beaches, unique cultural scene and 230-block National Register Historic District, which is one of the largest in the U.S.
Its comfortable year-round climate allows seniors to enjoy the area’s island beaches, parks and more than 50 golf courses all year long. Downtown Wilmington is home to 39 art galleries, museums and the famed Riverwalk boardwalk, where seniors can wander the Cape Fear River shoreline and visit a variety of local shops, restaurants and landmarks. Not only is Wilmington one of North Carolina’s most walkable cities, but Wave Transit’s free trolley service also makes it easy for seniors to get around. Wilmington is great for seniors on a fixed income, as the state charges a low-income tax rate and offers tax exemptions on all Social Security retirement benefits.
The city’s high overall cost of living is reflected in the cost of assisted living services. According to Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care Survey, assisted living services in Wilmington are $5,355 per month, which could impact low-income seniors who would otherwise pay an average of $3,693 per month in many communities across North Carolina.
