Tip for Keeping in Touch With Senior Loved Ones Online
Covid has upended everything, and the segment of the population that is hurting the most are our aging loved ones. Most seniors have had to isolate themselves from family and friends, so loneliness is an even bigger issue than before. Video calls like Zoom have become popular, but many apps and games like Words with Friends and sudoku have built-in chats for keeping in touch.

Ranking The Best Senior Living Facilities in North Carolina

Searching through thousands of Google and Facebook reviews, analyzing our own user ratings and comments was a huge task for our team. North Carolina DHSR has its own star rating certificate program, facilities start with a score of 100, and lose points for citations and violations. All of these ranking factors were collected and weighted for a final ranking score.

On average, North Carolina senior living will costs about $2,200, cheaper than most other states. Of course the average cost can vary greatly depending on location, services offered, as well as other factors. For instance, independent living and senior apartments are cheaper since no care is available. Memory care and nursing homes employ highly trained staff like RN’s and high-end medical equipment. Costs for these facilities run thousands of dollars more per month.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Treeo Senior Living Raleigh:

After much research on line for a senior living community in Raleigh ,and 3 visits to other communities, we made the right choice and chose Treeo senior living. We have been here a month now and have been happy with our choice in all ways. Moving from your home after many years is a hard task, but sometimes necessary. With the help of a friendly staff and friendly residents it made the adjustment much easier. We do recommend coming and looking Treeo over if you are looking for a senior community.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Lake Pointe Landing Senior Living:

Is it wrong to say you envy your parents living at Lake Pointe Landing? Delicious meals delivered to their door (during covid), wine and cheese offerings, snacks, movies, exercise classes, a well stocked library and cleaning services? My parents chose Lake Pointe Landing after looking at many other communities and I’m thrilled they did. The staff is caring, supportive and great at communicating. The property is beautiful. My parents are happy living there so I’m a happy daughter!

The Living Center of Concord NC

What residents and loved ones have to say about The Living Center of Concord:

My dad is adjusting better than I thought he would at The Living Center of Concord I really couldn’t ask for a better staff and how they care for my dad. Dad really likes going to the dining room and he said that “They some of the best bacon” he’s ever had. My dad is starting to get involved in the activities and enjoys bingo night and he is starting to make friends which is great. I like that they have a resident doctor who sees my dad on regular bases so that he does not have to go out to a doctor. The do offer transportation and field trips for the residents who want to use it as well. I would definitely recommend The Living Center of Concord the price is right and they are privately own.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Silver Bluff Village:

My mother needed rehab six years ago after spine surgery. She had a positive outcome the first time she was here, so when she needed rehab again for a complicated ankle fracture, we selected Silver Bluff again. Many of the staff were the same from her first stay and remembered my mother. She received genuine care and concern from the staff. The faculty has been well maintained and was very clean. She enjoyed the food and the rehab she received was outstanding. She still needed continued rehab, but unfortunately the way the Medicare guidelines are currently, she had to be moved to an assisted/long term care location. We would recommended Silver Bluff Rehab to others based on our two experiences.
