Carillon Leads Senior Housing Growth in Triangle
Senior living in the Triangle is on the upswing, due in large part to the growth of North Carolina’s only homegrown, locally based provider, Carillon Assisted Living. The Raleigh-based company, founded in 1996, will open three new communities in the Triangle by 2014. Carillon’s hometown expansion signals a shift for the Triangle senior housing market, which until now has been dominated by national corporations.
Carillon is the only North Carolina-owned and operated provider of licensed assisted living and Alzheimer’s care in the state. The company currently operates 14 communities across the state,including one each in Fuquay-Varina and Knightdale. The company’s Triangle portfolio will grow over the next two years to include communities in Durham, North Raleigh and Wake Forest, in addition to new properties in Mooresville and Clemmons.
Carillon President and CEO Karen Moriarty says her company’s growth is evidence of the tremendous demand among North Carolina seniors for homes that keep an engaging, active lifestyle well within their reach.
“Our residents come to Carillon because they have a life to live, and they don’t want that life to be defined by what they can no longer do for themselves,” says Moriarty, Carillon’s founder and chief executive officer.
Moriarty said Carillon’s Triangle expansion will bring about 200 new jobs to the region.
