Assisted Living in Charlotte, NC

Charlotte is a sprawling city that’s home to nearly 900,000 people. While it’s commonly known as a university town, it has a large senior community that accounts for about one in ten of the population. This vibrant city is a business and financial hub and home to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and with two shopping malls, the SouthPark and Northlake Mall, visitors have plenty of options for shopping and dining. The city has a rich history that visitors can learn about at living history museums, such as the Hezekiah Alexander House, the Historic Latta Plantation and the President James K. Polk Historic Site. With a comfortable climate that features mild winters and warm summers, Charlotte is well-suited for seniors who enjoy outdoor living.

Seniors who need more hours of daily care than what is available or affordable via in-home services often transition to assisted living. This level of care provides meals, housing, personal care and some skilled nursing. Assisted living in Charlotte costs $4,400 per month, according to Genworth’s 2021 Cost of Care Survey, which is $390 above the norm for North Carolina and $100 below the U.S. average.

This guide is for Charlotte’s seniors, their families and anyone who wants to learn more. Costs are compared between other cities in North Carolina, and potential sources of assistance are detailed.
