Independent Living Frequently Asked Questions
What is a CCRC?
A continuing care retirement community (CCRC), also called a Life Plan Community, offers independent living plus access to a continuum of care, if ever needed. As an independent living resident, you live in your own maintenance-free cottage or villa. Repairs and groundskeeping are all included. In addition, residents enjoy delicious chef-prepared meals in the community’s dining venues or can cook their own meals in their independent living residence. Should the need arise, residents have priority access to short-term rehabilitation and therapy services, assisted living, and skilled nursing on-site.
How do I choose a cottage or villa?

Assisted Living Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept direct admissions to assisted living?
Yes, we accept direct admissions. However, independent living residents at Wesley Pines have priority for admission to assisted living. Please contact us for more information at 910-272-3006.
How do I know when a loved one needs assisted living?
It’s best to start with a physician’s assessment. Depending on the circumstances of your situation, or that of your loved one, you can match needs to the right level of services provided by an assisted living facility.
What if my loved one needs more than what’s provided in assisted living?
At Wesley Pines, we offer continuing care. In addition to assisted living, we provide skilled nursing and rehabilitation. These levels of living provide around-the-clock care for residents recovering from illness or injury, or those needing more long-term care or support.
Skilled Nursing Frequently Asked Questions
What is skilled nursing?
Skilled nursing is for seniors who need more care than assisted living provides but don’t need to be hospitalized. They may be recently discharged from the hospital and need post-acute care to regain strength and function. Or they may need long-term care for a chronic condition. At Wesley Pines, we provide around-the-clock skilled nursing care on-site at our health center.
Is skilled nursing at Wesley Pines Medicare certified?
