More retirees are moving to North Carolina and specifically to the Charlotte area. Some are following their adult children who are attracted to our area’s growing progressive business opportunities. But many seniors are also drawn to the combination of favorable year-round climate, world famous golf courses, quality health care, shopping with leisure attractions and relatively close access to the beach and mountains.
There are many ways for a senior to become involved within our community. Local senior centers offer bridge tournaments, classes, meals and travel opportunities with new friends. Many churches have active programs for seniors with calendars full of trips, education classes and mentoring programs. Several multi-cultural organizations, specifically the Charlotte Mecklenburg Senior Center’s Multi-Cultural Programs, offer information and fun for seniors from different countries. In addition, several organizations serve to link seniors with schools, companies and non-profits in need of volunteer expertise.
Some Active Adult Communities Include:
Stuart's Landing- From the low $200s
Hubbard Falls- From the low $200s
Harper's Green- From the low $200s

While some seniors choose to purchase a home or condo, some may be interested in exploring the benefits offered by area retirement communities. Some services provided by these communities include transportation, housekeeping and maintenance, daily meals, and planned activities and trips with other residents.
One type of retirement community available in our area is the continuing-care or life-care community that offers a full continuum of care for residents, including independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation. Some seniors who need assistance with daily tasks but do not need more intensive nursing care may consider a domiciliary care Shepherd’s Center East.
