Carillon of Durham Is Now Open

Carillon Assisted Living opened the first of three new Triangle communities in Durham recently, soon to be followed by North Raleigh in June and Wake Forest in early 2014. The Triangle-based company’s hometown expansion signals a shift for the region’s senior housing market, which until now has been dominated by national corporations. 


Carillon Assisted Living of Durham opened to residents in December.

The Durham community, located at 4713 Garrett Road between Highway 15-501 and University Drive, will be home to 96 seniors. Reservations are still being accepted for residential suites, private and semi-private rooms—all of which come with Carillon’s signature brand of high-quality, licensed assisted living care, services and amenities. The community is also home to The Garden Place, Carillon’s highly regarded Alzheimer’s care program. 

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; about 65 of them in Durham alone. 

The company currently operates 15 communities across the state, including one each in Fuquay-Varina and Knightdale.  Carillon’s portfolio will grow to 20 communities by late 2014 with the addition of properties in Mooresville, Clemmons and Huntersville.  As North Carolina’s only locally owned and operated provider of licensed assisted living and Alzheimer’s care, Carillon communities look and feel like the North Carolina that seniors know and love—including expansive covered porches, gracious indoor and outdoor entertaining areas and well-tended gardens.  

That homegrown appeal is more than just skin-deep. 

“What really sets Carillon apart is that we keep our promises to seniors and their families,” says Alice Reynolds, executive director of Carillon Assisted Living of Durham.  “We promise a life of uncompromising care from day one, and we deliver on that promise every day after that.”

Carillon Assisted Living of Durham is open daily for tours. Call the community at 919-401-1101 to schedule lunch and a tour.
