Imagine Your Carefree
Retirement Lifestyle

Relax while you casually tour the many downtown shops in our picturesque town. Take in the fresh mountain air on a hike with neighbors. Sit by Tranquil Lake and watch the ducklings learn to swim. Volunteer at any of the local organizations you choose.

Whatever you choose to do, you’ll experience a carefree retirement lifestyle with friends. Better still, you’ll be right here in beautiful and temperate western North Carolina.

At Carolina Village, the possibilities are endless.


Envision Your Ideal Home

Go ahead. Picture it.

Are you envisioning an apartment, where you can get to all community amenities without ever leaving climate-controlled halls?

Or is it an Arts & Crafts-style cottage tucked away in our Henderson County hills, surrounded by mountain laurel and azalea?

Either way, we have options you’ll absolutely love. How do we know you’ll love them? Because we’ll customize whatever you choose to your liking before you ever move in.

With our sweeping views, open spaces, unlimited involvement opportunities, and fresh mountain breezes, our residences are what you might call a breath of fresh air.

Breathe Easy Knowing
You’ll Be Cared For

Above all, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that you’ll be well cared for… Always. In other words, you’ll have the absolute confidence that if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll have our top-rated full continuum of care and caring staff available to you. Right here on campus.

Carolina Village helps residents “age in place” since we offer all levels of senior care in one, beautiful location in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Residents enter the community at the independent living level and receive higher levels of care – when needed – on the same campus.

Carolina Village’s continuum of care includes independent living, assisted living (our Care Center), and skilled nursing (our Medical Center). Residents are guaranteed access to our 60-bed Care Center and 58-bed Medicare-certified Medical Center whenever they might need that level of care. This includes acute stays, such as post-surgery recovery and rehabilitation, or long-term stays, such as extensive memory care. Access is unlimited, meaning that there is no cap or restriction on the amount of time residents can use these services.

Additionally, residents have access to physical, occupational, and speech therapy on campus. Audiologists, optometrists, podiatrists, psychologists, and other specialists visit campus regularly for residents’ convenience.

Whether residents need periodic help getting to appointments or need assistance with daily activities, our team provides tailored care to each individual with compassion and grace. We take care of our residents, whatever the need may be.

Carolina Village is a non-profit Type A Life Care Community. To be determined a Life Care Community, residents must be given availability to more than one level of care on location and have access to an engaging, active lifestyle-both of which are offered at Carolina Village.

Our Type A (“Extensive,” “Life Care,” “Life Plan,” or “All-Inclusive”) Community means that you will pay an entry fee and a relatively consistent monthly service fee. Monthly fees may adjust due to inflation over time, but you will always be entitled to residential services, amenities, and guaranteed health care whenever you may need it. This agreement means that you will have predictable future expenses, regardless of what life may throw at you.

When you choose a LifeCare Community like Carolina Village, you are choosing a maintenance- and worry-free retirement for many years to come.

Our Care Center and Medical Center routinely receive high rankings from the North Carolina Department of Health Service Regulations and the Center for Medicare/Medicaid Services. Check out Medicare.gov to see our ratings. Our Medical Center has routinely been recognized by U.S. News and World Report as a top-rated skilled nursing facility. While Carolina Village chooses not to hold accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), we do meet all CARF standards for care and service.
