If you are considering assisted living homes in Raleigh, NC for yourself or a loved one, you couldn't have picked a better time to live and age in Raleigh.
The Raleigh metro is just shy of the top 50 large metros in the U.S. for "successful aging" – and the highest in N.C. – according to a new report by the Milken Institute.
Raleigh (which presumably includes Cary) is No. 56, Charlotte is No. 78, Winston-Salem is No. 79 and Greensboro-High Point is No. 88 on the list.
The rankings are based on multiple factors: Cost of living, crime rate, employment growth, unemployment rate, income distribution, weather and the percentage of binge drinkers.
On the Milken Institute's list of the best small metros, Durham-Chapel is No. 41, Greenville is No. 52, Wilmington is No. 155 and Asheville is No 175. (Note: The percentage of binge drinkers was not factored into the small metro rankings.)
