Croasdaile is much less expensive than some CCRCs in the area and will also take people into any level of residency, so someone could move straight into assisted living or the nursing home. Most CCRCs only take people into independent living. For expensive, check The Cedars at Meadowmont! Croasdaile also has some Medicare and, I believe, Medicaid beds in the nursing home. They also have a life-long care policy so once you're in, you're in for life (if you want to be) even if you run out of money.

I'm not affiliated with Croasdaile in any way, but it really is not an expensive CCRC for the area. A person can spend a whole lot more than Croasdaile asks. If you don't want the whole CCRC package, though, and all your grandmother needs is senior apartments (not assisted living, btw) or if you and she would be happy with a stand-alone assisted living facility or assisted-living/nursing home situation you could probably get by with spending less.

The idea behind the CCRC model, though, is you move in while you're still active and able and have fun with all the amenities. If you need more help as you get older then you move into the other levels of care. There are usually many more indpendent living seniors than seniors in assisted living or the nursing home levels at CCRCs.

There is also a senior living community in Mebane. I can't remember the name of it off the top of my head, though. If I recall correctly it's just independent living so not sure if it would be what you're looking for.

Danielle, hope your grandmother's hospitalization is brief and she can get settled somewhere that meets her needs.

Default Senior living in Raleigh/Durham NC

Keep in mind if you are searching for any type of senior living in the Triangle that there are services available to help you (at no cost to you). Senior housing consultants will meet with you (typically by phone or in person), find out what you/your loved ones are in need of in regards to social, medical and financial needs, help you narrow down the choices (as this can sometimes be quite overwhelming, assist with touring and with the paperwork process. This is all done at no cost to you as they typically have contracts with all or most of the local communities and they will be reimbursed by the community at move in.

This is a fairly new type of service that has been created to meet the growing needs of families seeking assistance in finding the right resources.

Good luck with your search!
