Davidson 3rd Best Place to Retire in NC

DAVIDSON, NC   Investopedia just ranked Davidson as the 3rd Best Place to Retire in NC.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

From the article:

3. Davidson

Davidson is a lakeside town on Lake Norman that offers the charms of small-town living and Southern hospitality, with a population just over 12,200. At the same time, residents are less than a half hour’s drive to downtown Charlotte and its big-city conveniences, including shopping, restaurants, nightlife, an international airport (CLT) and a nationally ranked health-care system. It’s considered a very walkable town with a well-kept historic character, and many residents take full advantage of Lake Norman for boating, fishing and other water sports, as well as hiking and biking.

Link to article: https://www.investopedia.com/articles/retirement/110416/5-best-places-retire-north-carolina.asp

We know how awesome Davidson is.  They forgot to mention the College, Farmers Market, Concerts on the Green…..

Charlotte Ranked #4 Best Place to Retire

Once again Charlotte is ranked a best place to retire.  This time by MagnifyMoney.com.

The Best Places to Spend Your Golden Years (and Age in Place)

charlotte-skyline_750xx2100-1187-0-144

From the article

How we ranked metros

We used four major categories to make our determinations of which of the biggest 50 US metros were the best places to spend one’s golden years.

Lifestyle:

  • Volunteer rates for those ages 55 and older to get a sense of where senior citizens had the opportunities to be most engaged with the community-at-large
  • Rate of physical activity in each metro to get a sense of which communities offer the most opportunities for activity
  • Percentage of residents ages 65 and over who moved into the metro that year so we could see how desirable seniors find these metros

Cost of living:

  • Median monthly housing costs because whether renting or owning, retirees are on fixed incomes and the ability to afford housing is crucial to aging in place
  • Regional prices for goods and services because the salary bumps of living in more expensive places no longer apply to those who are no longer working

Medical quality and cost:

  • The percentage of hospital discharges of Medicare enrollees that were for conditions considered preventable with adequate primary care
  • The average cost that Medicare pays per enrollee in a given metro
  • The percentage of people aged 65 or older who are up-to-date on their core preventive services, such as flu shots and cancer screenings

The availability and quality of different kinds of assisted care:

  • We looked at the number of home nursing service providers registered with Medicare per 100,000 residents because the availability of home nursing may be essential to those who age in place
  • The average Medicare rating of registered home nursing service providers
  • The number of nursing home beds registered with Medicare per 100,000 residents because sometimes people do require temporary or permanent intensive residential care and sometimes on very short notice
  • The number of continuing care retirement communities registered with Medicare per 100,000 residents because these communities (a subset of nursing homes) offer a bridge between independent living in private apartments (with some community and medical amenities such as dining rooms, group activities, physical therapy) and more intensive nursing care in the same facility
  • The average Medicare rating of registered nursing homes
