North Carolina is a great place to retire, especially if you’re looking forward to living the next chapter of your life in an area rich with natural beauty, vibrant arts and culture, and picture-book-perfect mountain getaways. This is what independent living in North Carolina is like when you choose an Upside community near Charlotte or Raleigh-Durham. It’s also just the beginning of the benefits of NC senior living. North Carolina is a tax-friendly state for older adults because there’s no Social Security tax, no State Estate tax, and a low income tax rate. Factor in a lower-than-average cost of living on things like housing, transportation, and utilities, and you’ll notice how much further your dollar goes here. It all adds up to affordable independent living in North Carolina without the need to compromise.
With Upside, we approach the concept of “retirement” living differently.

For starters, you’ll get to choose your dream home from our huge selection of apartments near Charlotte or Raleigh-Durham – and you won’t have to worry about hidden fees or monotonous daily schedules. You are in charge of your own destiny when you choose NC senior living from Upside.
