Assisted living residences are different. We help you find the one that best meets your needs and wants. We’re unbiased, and it’s free of charge.

What We Provide

  • A free comprehensive directory of all assisted living residences in North Carolina
  • Expanded search tools to help you specify which options related to services, costs, policies, staffing, dementia care, and other areas are important to you
  • A user-friendly search feature that selects the assisted living residences that most closely meet your needs and wants
  • Reviews posted by people who have visited or lived in assisted living residences
  • Helpful information about assisted living
  • A referral to assisted living residences … but only if you request it

Why We’re Different

We’re non-profit and not paid by assisted living providers or other companies, meaning the information we provide is unbiased. Because we’re university-based, the information we provide is research-quality.

The Facts

Assisted living residences vary widely in terms of their services, costs, policies, staffing, and other features.

People don’t realize these differences, which could lead to a bad choice at this critical time.

  • The right choice can improve quality of life, while the wrong choice can cause worry and problems
  • The wrong choice can require a second move, which is additionally disruptive and costly
  • The average cost of an assisted living stay over time is almost $80,000, making the right choice an important financial one
  • Making the right choice is time-consuming, requiring weeks of telephone calls and internet searches
  • Internet searches may be misleading because the information is often incomplete, imprecise, outdated, and designed to attract customers
