Cary, North Carolina, is a sprawling town of about 170,000 residents in Chatham and Wake Counties, and was named by Money Magazine as one of the best small cities in America to live in. It's located near major cities like Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, providing access to world-class medical facilities, performing arts venues and shopping malls, and it has an array of services and resources for seniors, such as a senior center and door-to-door public transportation. With its amenities for seniors, it's no surprise that those aged 65 and over make up nearly 12% of the population. 

In the Raleigh area, where Cary is located, most types of senior care are more affordable than in the nation as a whole. Homemaker services cost an average of $4,004, adult day health care costs about $1,300 and nursing home care is $7,148 per month, all of which are roughly $300-400 less than the national average. Assisted living services in the Cary region are about $1,300 more than the national average, coming in at $5,325 per month. This, combined with the area's high cost of living and the state income tax imposed on retirement income, may be prohibitive for retirees with restrictive budgets.
